 95. PROJECT:Popo Agie Watershed Management Plan
SPONSOR:Popo Agie Conservation District
LOCATION:Fremont County
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 86 2001 I $200,000 2002

The Popo Agie watershed is approximately 522,350 acres with land ownership divided among federal (67%), private (26%), and state (7%). The watershed includes three primary river systems, the North Fork of the Popo Agie, Middle Fork of the Popo Agie, and the Little Popo Agie River.

The conservation District would like to look at several variables within the watershed. District constituents have concerns based on things such as consistent water flow, conveyance losses in irrigation ditches, impacts from subdivisions, and a study of the fluvial health of the watershed. This information would provide baseline information, which the district could evaluate and continue to expand upon for watershed planning.

The project was initiated during July 2001. Field work and data collection was conducted during the summer and fall. Baseline information was collected and GIS coverages were built. The irrigation systems with the watershed were inventoried and evaluated. Level 1 geomorphic mapping was completed and level 2 field surveys were initiated. This study is continuing, with data analysis being conducted during the winter, additional field work will be conducted in summer 2002, and the final report to be submitted at the end of October 2002.

No legislative action is required.
