BLM completes environmental analysis for the Alkali Creek Reservoir Project
WORLAND, Wyo. –Today the Bureau of Land Management Worland Field Office released the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Alkali Creek Reservoir Project near Hyattville, Wyoming. The proposed project, from the Wyoming Water Development Office, supports the BLM’s commitment to modernizing infrastructure and is consistent with Wyoming’s 2015 Water Strategy.
The proposed reservoir is intended to provide late season irrigation to relieve shortages in the Paint Rock Creek Watershed and Nowood River area. The proposed reservoir is approximately 294 acres in size and would have a normal capacity of approximately 7,994 acre-feet, or 2.6 billion gallons of water.
The BLM manages public lands for the benefit of current and future generations, and agriculture and recreation are traditional uses that continue to serve local communities throughout the West.
The final EIS and other project information is available at: https://go.usa.gov/xUsam.
For more information, contact the Worland Field Office at 307-347-5100 or blm_wy_alkalicreekreservoireis@blm.gov.
 
 
 
The Wyoming Water Development Office (WWDO) has submitted a Right-of-Way (ROW) proposal to construct a 294-acre reservoir on Alkali Creek and ancillary facilities across public and private land near Hyattville, Wyoming.  The Reservoir will have a total capacity of approximately 8,000 acre-feet, of which 6,000 acre-feet will serve as a supplemental irrigation supply for the Nowood River Watershed Improvement District, leaving a 2,000 acre-foot minimum pool for habitat, fishing and recreational use.
