Meeting called for municipal watershed project

A virtual public meeting has been set for Jan. 14 at 6 p.m. on a proposed Sheridan Municipal Watershed project aimed at limiting sediment and debris in the municipal watershed and adjacent lands in event of a wildfire.

The meeting will be hosted by the Bighorn National Forest Tongue River District and is via a Team Live Event.

Attendees won’t have the option to speak during the meeting, but they will be able to type their comments and questions.

The project proposal includes mechanical timber harvesting in the watershed area, including clear cuts greater than 40 acres, non-commercial thinning and hand piling, prescribed burns, aspen and riparian habitat improvement, road maintenance and decommissioning and improvement of recreation sites.

More information on the project is available on the Bighorn National Forest’s website at
