No Support For New Teton Dam

February 19, 2014 State of Idaho, Teton Valley No Comments
Henry's Fork Dam

The Bureau of Reclamation has developed a final report for the Henrys Fork Basin Study which sought to identify opportunities for developing water supplies improving water management, and sustaining environmental quality in the Henrys Fork River basin in Idaho.  Twelve alternatives were identified, but only three are considered to have the broad support of those they would impact.  Those alternatives include construction of a Dam at the Bitch Creek/Teton River confluence northwest of Tetonia, increase of storage at Island Park Reservoir, and increase the storage at Aston Reservoir.  The support also includes improvements to the water delivery system.  Meanwhile, proposals that involved dams located at Spring Creek, Moody Creek, Upper Badger Creek and reconstruction of the Teton Dam did not win support. The alternatives will be presented in a public meeting in Driggs, Idaho next week.

  • Cowboy Running Back Ready For His New Role [AUDIO] - October 29, 2014
