Teton Conservation District

Level 1 Watershed Boundary

What is a Watershed Study?

The Wyoming Water Development Office (WWDO) has funded ($375,000) a watershed study in the Upper Snake River basin. The purpose of the study is to evaluate watershed conditions, needs, and opportunities on irrigated lands, rangelands, wetlands, and streams.The project consultant has provided the Teton Conservation District (TCD) with a watershed plan that outlines possible land and water improvements in partnership with landowners. Although the consultant's work is done, there is now the oppourtunity for land owners to bring projects forward to TCD to assess for bringing before the WWDO for partial funding. Potential opportunities could include; water and land improvements, irrigation rehabilitation, livestock and wildlife water development, and stream enhancement.

Olsson Associates was the project consultant for the watershed study.

TCD will act as the sponsor for WWDO's Small Water Project Program (SWPP) grants. The application deadline to TCD will occur in late fall. Please contact us directly for more information on the application process.
