The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will hold three public meetings to discuss implementation recommendations for the Shoshone River Pathogen Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) project.  The first public meeting will be held on Tuesday July 23, 2013, from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. in Grizzly Hall at the Park County Library located at 1500 Heart Mountain Street in Cody, WY.  The second public meeting will be held on Wednesday July 24, 2013 from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. at the Lovell Community Center located at 1925 Highway 310 in Lovell, WY.  The third public meeting will be held on Wednesday July 24, 2013, from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. at Park County Weed & Pest located at 1067 Road 13 in Powell, WY.

These meetings will provide information about the development of TMDL implementation recommendations for the Shoshone River Pathogen TMDL project. A TMDL is defined as the amount of pollutant a stream can accept and still meet its designated uses. A TMDL assessment is required by the Clean Water Act when a waterbody is determined to not be meeting its assigned designated uses. 

Each meeting will include a 30-minute presentation and an opportunity to speak with the DEQ and project representatives about the project.  You are invited to attend one of these meetings to provide valuable information and input for the project.  In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, special assistance or alternative formats will be made available, upon request, for individuals with disabilities.
