Teton County, Idaho has been awarded $1-million to restore Teton Creek and reduce risk of flooding to nearby homes.  The project is being funded through the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s Flood Mitigation Assistance program.  Additionally, $434,000 for the project will come from Teton County, Friends of the Teton River, Idaho Department of Environmental Quality, and other partner organizations and individuals.  Friends of the Teton River Director Adonia Ripple says the project will stabilize 5,600 feet of eroding stream banks, reduce flooding risk by decreasing erosion, and re-establish riparian vegetation to stabilize the floodplain.  She says the project will also improve water quality, and enhance fish and wildlife habitat. The award completes a $2.6 million dollar project, which began with collaboration, stakeholder-driven planning and design in 2006 and implementation in 2009.
