TOJ To Power Game and Fish

by Jackson Hole. Media

When the Wyoming Game and Fish Department decided to run a buried electrical power line to their South Park Wildlife Habitat Management Area metal building near the Wastewater Plan, officials at Lower Valley Energy determined that the closest power source would be on the Town of Jackson’s property at the Wastewater Treatment Plant’s pumping facility.

So the State asked the Town for an official agreement and, Monday, the Town Council approved.

The Game and Fish Department will extend the underground power from the transformer at the I.P.S. Facility, south onto their property, terminating at their metal building. This would entail connecting to the Town’s transformer, installing a junction box, and trenching a line to the Game and Fish property.

Lower Valley Energy would get a twenty (20) foot wide maintenance easement on the Town’s property.
