Notice of Public Meeting

The Town of Pinedale, Wyoming, will conduct a public meeting at 5 p.m., local time, on April 8, 2024, in the Town Council Chambers located at Pinedale Town Hall, 205 Entertainment Lane, Pinedale, WY 82941.


The purpose of the meeting is to allow citizens to review and comment on the following: 1) the Pinedale Shallow Water Main Sewer Replacement Project, and 2) the Wastewater Treatment Facility Rehabilitation Phase 1 and Phase 2 Engineering Project.

The Pinedale Shallow Water Main Sewer Replacement Project consists of removal of existing sewer mains and services beneath Shanley Avenue and Jade Street and replacement with approximately 1100 linear feet of eight and ten-inch diameter pipe.


Work includes the completion of necessary surface repairs due to the location of the underground infrastructure and is anticipated to be constructed in fall 2024 in conjunction with the Shallow Water Main Replacement Project.


The Wastewater Treatment Facility Rehabilitation Phase 1 and Phase 2 Engineering Project will remove and replace deteriorated anaerobic pond covers and the UV disinfection system which has reached the end of its useable life, upgrade the bulk septic receiving to further protect the treatment equipment and treatment train, and install an outlet diffuser to improve mixing discharge waters across Pine Creek. The Phase 2 Engineering portion of the project will include the engineering design of a secondary treatment upgrade to the Wastewater Treatment Facility pursuant to the findings of the Wastewater Treatment Master Plan to reduce discharge of ammonia and other discharge parameters regulated by the Town of Pinedale WYPDES permit with WYDEQ. It is anticipated that the work will be completed in 2025.


At the meeting, the Town of Pinedale will present the preliminary designs of the proposed projects and will discuss the estimated costs of the improvements and the plans for funding the improvements. Preliminary plans of improvements, cost estimates, and the funding plans can also be obtained for review by contacting the office of Nelson Engineering, 430 S Cache St, Jackson, WY. Contact Matt Bowers at (307) 733-2087, or mbowers@nelsonengineering.net.


Based on current cost estimates, the Town of Pinedale plans to borrow $294,834 from the Wyoming Clean Water State Revolving Loan Fund for the Pinedale Shallow Water Main Sewer Replacement Project and $1,895,350 for the Wastewater Treatment Facility Rehabilitation Phase 1 and Phase 2 Engineering Project administered by the Wyoming Office of State Lands and Investments.


Increased user fees and reserves from the sewer enterprise fund will repay the loan. The average rate increase is estimated to be $0.80/month per user to repay the sewer loan and $4.39/month per user to repay the WWTF loan. Loan terms will be, at maximum, 1.5% interest rate and 30 years.


Written comments are also welcome. Send written comments to Nelson Engineering, Attn: Suzanne Lagerman, P.O. Box 1599, Jackson, WY 83001, or slagerman@nelsonengineering.net by 2 p.m. local time on April 8, 2024.
