AMK Upgrades Eyed

AMK Berol Lodge

The University of Wyoming and the National Park Service are in the process of preparing an environmental assessment to analyze environmental effects of a range of alternatives for proposed improvements to the UW/NPS Research Center Campus at the AMK Ranch on the eastern shore of Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park. These include replacement of the water and wastewater systems, construction of a new dormitory. Park Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says it has been determined that the existing water and wastewater systems need to be replaced since the current potable water system operates from three wells and an associated 500-gallon pressure tank.  Consequently, she says this water system does not provide structural fire protection. Additionally, she says the wastewater system is well beyond its intended lifespan and the available dormitory space is inadequate.  Skaggs says other work being considered is necessary for the preservation of historic facilities at the ranch.  Skaggs says the EA is also looking at some problems around the old Berol Lodge where drainage problems could cause failure to the buildings foundation, and a breakwater that protects the historic boathouse. Public comments will be accepted during a scoping period now through February 20th.
