Fontenelle Community Renovation, Seedskadee Project
Lincoln County, Wyoming

Back to Environmental Documents

The Seedskadee Project is a participating project in the Colorado River Storage Project. Principle features of the project are the Fontenelle Dam, Powerplant, and Reservoir. The project is located on the Green River some 24 miles southeast of LaBarge, Wyoming in Lincoln County. The dam is located at latitude: 42.0285593 - longitude: -110.0604315. The project features, along with worker housing, were built beginning in 1961 and completed in 1964. The houses and associated infrastructure (road) are in need of extensive renovation. Reclamation conducted a value engineering study to review options to meet the need for improved employee housing, and this resulted in the proposal described here.

The purpose of this initiative is to improve living and working conditions for employees at the Seedskadee Project. This action is needed because there is insufficient housing for employees working at the Seedskadee Project and the extant housing is not up to current building and energy efficiency standards. Reclamation proposes to build four new houses and a 3-plex within the existing Seedskadee Community in Lincoln County, Wyoming.  Other work includes restoring a road with curb and gutter. Also, a new sewage disposal system, including a septic tank(s) and drain field, will be developed.
