Late last month, President Trump signed into law America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018.

As Chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, U.S. Senator John Barrasso of Wyoming was the lead Senate author of the bill. Barrasso said the bipartisan legislation will cut Washington red tape, grow the nation’s economy, and help keep communities safe.

The legislation will benefit numerous projects throughout Wyoming, including ecosystem restoration to the creeks in Sheridan.

The Water Infrastructure Act prioritizes funding for ecosystem restoration projects that modify existing Army Corps levees in the Upper Missouri River Basin. The City of Sheridan has been working with the Army Corps of Engineers to improve aquatic, wetland, and riparian habitat along Goose Creek and its two largest tributaries, Little Goose Creek and Big Goose Creek.
