Sheridan County May Make Proposal to G&F Commission

The decision by Johnson County Commissioners to not accept the Game and Fish 99-year lease proposal for junior water rights on Lake DeSmet has opened the door for Sheridan County to perhaps market their share of water individually.

At August's Lake DeSmet Counties Coalition meeting, a representative from the Game and Fish Commission extended an invitation to Sheridan County to attend this month's Commission meeting to offer a proposal to the G&F regarding Lake DeSmet water. Sheridan County Commission Chair Mike Nickel.

The G&F Commission will meet in Casper, September 13th and 14th.
