LYIP Holds Annual Meeting February 18


James Brower, Lower Yellowstone Irrigation Project Manager, discussed the projects they completed over the last year, as well as what has been going on with the LYIP. They have recently begun a lawsuit against the environmentalists for not having enough research on the pallid sturgeon. They have also hired an independent company called Tetra-Tech to help them study all options that have been acquired over the years. Brower also discussed the complications with installing pumps in the Yellowstone such as carbon pollution and noise pollution, and even miles of piping that would run through designated sage grouse habitats.

Leslie Messer with Economic Development took to the stand at LYIP's 2016 Annual Meeting to thank every body for their support. Economic Development has been providing educational meetings on LYIP and arranging bus trips for public meetings.
