Approximately 700 feet of old, and undersized, vitrified clay sewer pipe will be removed and replaced with polyvinyl chloride pipe to improve flow and eliminate infiltration.

Project benefits include more uniform water pressures, increased water quality, decreased maintenance of the distribution system, increased flow capacity, decreased service disruptions for affected customers, and improved public health and safety.

The Town of Pinedale  is requesting loan funds from the Wyoming Drinking Water State Revolving Fund and Clean Water State Revolving Fund, as well as grant funding from the Mineral Royalty Grants program, all administered by the Wyoming Office of State Lands and Investments.

The Town of Pinedale is requesting to borrow $390,000 of Drinking Water State Funds and $168,000 of Clean Water State Revolving Funds, with a 25% principal forgiveness.  The Town is also requesting $339,000 of Mineral Royalty Grant funds.

At the meeting the Town will present the construction plans and funding options.

If the expected SRF loan funds and MRG funds are received, the Town will use water and sewer enterprise funds to pay off the loan and for the project.

If the funds are not received, the Town will need to reevaluate the priority of the project.
