USACE Hosts Meeting on Lander Flood Risk Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in cooperation with the City of Lander, will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, August 10, 2016 at the City Hall in Lander.

The purpose of the meeting is to gather input on the recently initiated Popo Agie River flood risk management feasibility study.

The public meeting will run from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. with a brief presentation at 5:15 p.m. describing the study followed by an open house.

“During the open house, the cooperating agencies will provide the public with a study overview and then gather their input on flooding problems along the Popo Agie River and Dickinson Creek,” said Ron Beyer, project manager with the Corps of Engineers.

“The Corps and the City will also discuss and seek public input on environmental considerations and available structural and nonstructural flood risk management measures that may be considered during the progress of the study.”

The purpose of the Popo Agie River feasibility study is to identify the potential for developing cost-effective flood risk management solutions.
