The City of Sheridan has received a $400,000 grant from the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality to address pollution in Little Goose and Goose Creek. In 2010, DEQ released the Goose Creek Watershed TMDL. The watershed analysis showed excessive amounts of sediment in Little Goose and Goose Creek.
Sheridan Mayor Dave Kinskey said that clean water is important for the health of our residents, the health of our economy and the quality of life that we enjoy in Sheridan.
The Mayor said that the grant funds will be used to install six storm water interceptors that will catch sediment before it reaches the creeks. Funds will also be used for monitoring water quality in the creeks to gain important data that will be used to target water quality efforts.
