136.PROJECT:Wheatland - Black Mountain Water Supply
SPONSOR:Town of Wheatland
LOCATION:Platte County
PROGRAM:New Development

The Platte County School District No. 1 is building a new middle school complex in the Black Mountain Village area (west of Interstate Highway I-25) in the Town of Wheatland. The West Elementary School is also located in the area. This section of the Town's water system was incapable of meeting the total water supply and fire supply requirements without major improvements. The Town seeks to eliminate this problem by constructing the project in three phases. The 2001 Legislature authorized WWDC grant funding in the amount of $222,000 to construct the first two phases of the project that included a 1 million gallon storage tank, valves, pressure controls and necessary connecting piping to connect the new storage and well to their water system.

The Town requested a 50% grant for financial assistance with the final phase of the project, which includes completion of a third well in the Black Mountain Village area, system connection piping, a pump house and a disinfection system. Total project costs are estimated to be $200,000.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated in the New Development Program at Level III with an appropriation of $100,000. The financing plan is for a 50% grant of $100,000.
