Teton Conservation District and TOJ tackle Flat Creek restoration

October 28, 2019by ncdea

WYOMING, Teton CD – Flat Creek is sick, or “impaired” according to the US Environmental Protection Agency, but Town of Jackson and Teton Conservation District are revamping efforts to take care of it.

The recent completion of the Flat Creek Watershed Management Plan 2019 Revision, coupled with TOJ’s stormwater improvements and planning efforts, have reinvigorated the ongoing conversation about protecting Flat Creek’s health, TCD says.

According to Carlin Girard, Water Resources Specialist for Teton Conservation District, “20 of the 22 objectives outlined in the Watershed Plan were completed, making the original plan outdated.”

With a grant from the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality, Teton Conservation District led an effort to bring the Flat Creek Watershed Management Plan up to date. The revised plan includes new project ideas, a list of accomplishments, summarizes existing data, and sets discrete goals for water quality and stream health in Flat Creek.
