What’s going on at the Eastern Shoshone Business Park in Riverton?
There was a lot of movement going on at the Eastern Shoshone Business Park (ESBP) in Riverton at the end of November. Crews worked on the regional stormwater detention facility– a project between Shoshone Indian Tribe Tribal Acquisition, LLC (SITTA), the City of Riverton, and WYDOT.
As presented to the Riverton City Council earlier this year, the facility serves to mitigate flood risk, restrict rates of discharge for stormwater, and improve the quality of water injected into the Wind River. The three parties involved entered into a cost allocation agreement in July. SITTA, LLC, will cover 25% of the total cost, which is roughly $1.3 million.
McCarty Excavation & Construction out of Colorado was awarded the project contract, which is expected to take 120 days to complete.
In addition to that work, the contractor will be placing excavated pond material onto the ESBP in the coming weeks.
Look for updates on prospective users of the ESBP in early December.
