DANIEL – The Wyoming Department
of Environmental Quality has received a request
from Jorgensen Associates on behalf of
Wapika Ranch, LLC., for state certification
of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nationwide
Permit No. 27, to discharge dredged or
fill material to the Green River near Daniel.
Proposed activities include stabilization
and maintaining habitat along 975 feet of
the Green River. This will be accomplished
through construction of a boulder integrated
bankfull bench along with installation of two
cross-vanes and two J-hook vanes. A total of
720 cubic yards of material will be used to
construct the bench and vanes.
This segment of the Green River is designated
Class 1. Point source discharges
to Class 1 waters are prohibited except for
storm water and construction related discharges.
This certification will require meeting
the provisions in Chapter 1, Section
7(b) of the WDEQ Water Quality Rules and
Regulations, which allows these discharges
under certain circumstances.
