Reconnect Canyon Creek to the Teton River and Restore Instream Flows Project
Reclamation proposes to provide funding through a WaterSMART grant for Friends of the Teton River to implement a watershed management project within Teton and Madison counties in southeastern Idaho. The proposed action would consist of three main actions: 1) irrigation system improvements at three sites, 2) a water right transfer application, and 3) development of a flow monitoring plan with accompanying equipment installation. If funded, the project would restore instream flows in Canyon Creek, a productive spawning tributary for a core conservation population of Yellowstone cutthroat trout.
The analysis of the alternatives will be documented in an environmental assessment and will be available in fall 2023.
