LYIP Diversion Project Hearing
Over 90 local residents traveled to a hearing in Great Falls on April 5 regarding the LYIP Diversion Project. Lawyers from the Corp of Engineers, Burea of Reclaimation and LYIP filed motions of dissolution pertaining to the injunction placed on the fish bypass diversion project at the Intake Dam. An extensive study costing $2.5 million was conducted to address the injunction placed on the project on behalf of the Defenders of Wildlife and other environmental groups suing to stop the project from moving forward. District Judge Brian Morris is to rule by April 15.
