The City of Buffalo and WWC Engineering of Sheridan have agreed to and accepted a Master Service Agreement concerning the Buffalo Wells Project.

Buffalo Mayor Shane Schrader explains wht the Master Service Agreement is and the details within it.

The Buffalo Wells and Transmission project will drill a number of water wells just west of the current water treatment plant for a secondary source of drinking water for the city, in case there are future problems with Tie Hack Reservoir, the city's primary water source.
A pipeline will connect the wells to the water treatment plant.

The Wyoming Legislature approved roughly $1.24 million in funding through the Wyoming Water Development Commission. Which is about 67% of the cost of the project.
The City of Buffalo will contribute about $610,000 or 33% of the total project cost of $1.85 million.

The goal of the project is to get six working water wells that can each produce 200 to 300 gallons of water per minute.

According to Mayor Schrader, the plan is to drill the wells this fall, as long as the weather cooperates.
If not, the wells will be drilled in the spring of 2020.
