WYOMING, Teton CD – The Jackson Hole Airport just got a major upgrade to its stormwater filtration system.
The Jackson Hole Airport Board will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony September 3 to celebrate the new system, which was made possible by a $60,000 grant from Teton Conservation District. Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon will be there to give an address, and the airport will be fueling planes with sustainable aviation fuel provided by AvFuel, a global supplier of aviation fuels and services.
“This is far beyond any local stormwater project from a size and treatment perspective, the level of treatment and quality of treatment is outstanding,” said Carlin Girard, Teton Conservation District’s water resource specialist. “Most systems plan for a 20-year storm event, the Airport went above and beyond by planning for a 100-year storm event.”
