113.PROJECT:Three Horses Watershed Plan
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:Campbell County and Lake DeSmet Conservation Districts
LOCATION:Campbell, Johnson and Sheridan Counties
PROGRAM:New Development

The drainage of Spotted Horse Creek, Dead Horse Creek and Wild Horse Creek head east of the Powder River and are tributary to the Powder River. These three watersheds make up the watershed study area to be considered.

The Three Horses Watershed supports some limited irrigated as well as dryland agriculture, however, cattle production is the primary agricultural industry in the watershed.

Due to recent activity involving coalbed methane exploration and extraction, the conservation districts are interested in evaluating the cumulative impacts to the watershed due to these activities. This project will include an analysis of these impacts as well as making full use of any other existing studies available for a complete watershed plan.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated in the New Development Program at Level I with an appropriation of $100,000.
