Teton County commissioners partner with conservation district on Hoback water problems

August 8, 2019by ncdea

WYOMING, Teton CD – At its meeting Monday, the Teton County Board of County Commissioners approved a memorandum of understanding with the Teton Conservation District “formalizing the roles, responsibilities, and obligations of each party,” according to a county staff report. Commissioners identified water quality, specifically in Hoback, as an area of focus for 2019-20 and asked the Conservation District to lead the charge in developing a new plan for the area, where public and private water sources have shown elevated levels of nitrates in drinking water for years.

Part of the memorandum allows the district to hire a facilitator for the process so that it can continue to be part of the steering committee working on the issue. The district’s board approved a contract with Legacy Works Group, and the commissioners’ “yes” vote makes the deal official.
