Wyoming to Spend Another $400K on Water For Pavillion

DEQ

RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) ā€” The state will spend at least another $400,000 to provide water to Pavillion-area homeowners with polluted groundwater.

A policy adviser to Gov. Matt Mead, Jerimiah Rieman, announced the funding during a meeting with residents last week. The Ranger reported Wednesday that the extra money will come from a $1.5 million grant from Encana Corp., the biggest driller in the Pavillion field.

The state is supplying cisterns to homeowners who say their water turned foul around the time that hydraulic fracturing picked up about eight years ago.

Rieman also announced that a recently drafted budget bill would add another $150,000 to the program. Lawmakers appropriated $750,000 for it in 2012 but most of that has been spent. The state now also plans to provide water too.

The state is investigating the contamination.
