Lower Yellowstone Irrigation Project Holds Annual Meeting


Lower Yellowstone Irrigation Project (LYIP) held its annual meeting on Valentine’s Day, beginning with a delicious dinner prepared by members of the Moose Lodge.

Project manager James Brower reminded everyone that water rights are being adjudicated and that anyone wishing to extend their irrigation boundaries to include current or proposed areas not already covered needs to stop by the irrigation office by February 24.

A main focus of the meeting involved the canal breach south of Sidney. High praise and deep thanks were given to Franz Construction, Interstate Engineering, NorTana Grain, and all the LYIP employees who worked diligently to repair the breach and get water flowing again. Brower also thanked everyone who attended the public hearings on the proposed fish bypass and concrete weir at Intake, saying history was made with the record attendance.

Election ballots were received until 3pm, with incumbent Hugo Asbeck retaining his seat on the board of LYIP District 1.
