Notice of Public Meeting

The Pioneer Water and Sewer District (District) will conduct a public meeting at 6 p.m. local time, on August 13, 2018, at the District’s Office located at 8917 Poison Spider Road. The purpose of the meeting is to allow citizens to review and comment on the planned Pioneer Water Transmission Pipeline Project. The District plans to construct a new 12-inch diameter water transmission pipeline to provide better water service to the central and northern portions of the District. The pipeline will be generally aligned north-south along 9 Mile Road between Poison Spider Road and US Highway 20/26. The pipeline will provide redundancy to the old 10-inch transmission pipeline that runs along 10 mile Road, and eliminate the water outages that occur when the old pipeline must be shut down for leak repairs.

At the meeting, the District will present the preliminary design of the proposed transmission pipeline and will discuss the estimated cost of the improvements, and the plan for funding the improvements. A preliminary plan of the improvements, cost estimates, and the funding plan can also be reviewed at the meeting. For any questions, please call the District Manager, Lee Anne Bayne at ph. 307-472-7300. 

Based on current estimates, the District plans to borrow $681,583 from the Wyoming Drinking Water State Revolving Loan fund which is administered by the Wyoming Office of State Lands and Investments. The loan will be repaid with revenues from current water user fees. A user fee increase for repayment of the loan is not planned. Loan terms will be 2.5% interest rate and 20 years.

Written comments are also welcome. Send written comments to the Pioneer Water and Sewer District, 8917 Poison Spider Road, Casper, WY, 82604. Written comments must arrive no later than 4 p.m. on August 13, 2018.
