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.”

WYOMING, Sheridan County CD – Sheridan County’s Commissioners ratified a letter from the Sheridan County Conservation District to the Natural Resources Conservation Services requesting federal assistance to fix damages sustained in the county during the precipitation and flooding events in May of this year.

According to the letter to the NRCS, saturated soil conditions still exist in the county, and threats to the affected sites remain.
Work is needed to safeguard lives and property from imminent soil/stream bank erosion due to the flooding.

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.
