In 2014, the City of Sheridan entered into a feasibility study agreement with the Army Corps of Engineers to evaluate the Flood Control Channel for the potential restoration of channel function, natural channel habitat, and to re-establish connectivity with the upstream and downstream reaches of Goose Creek, Big Goose Creek and Little Goose Creek in Sheridan.

The final draft of the feasibility study is now complete and available for review until March 12 at Sheridan City Hall, or the Sheridan Fulmer Library.

Greg Johnson, with the Army Corps of Engineers, presented the study via teleconference Monday night at a study session of the Sheridan City Council. City Public Works Director Lane Thompson said the two types of restoration that were studied were in-stream and riparian.

Johnson, in his report to the Council, said the overall total cost of the project would be $6.6 million, of which the City’s share would be $1.7 million. Thompson said that number will most likely be reduced to around $804,000.

The study will be available for public review at the library and City Hall until March 12.
