The Casper City Council passed a resolution amending the City’s contract for professional services with Trihydro Corporation to conduct Old Yellowstone District environmental site assessments during their Tuesday, March 5 Council meeting.
A memo from Community Development Director Liz Becher in the Council work packet explains that Casper was awarded a $400,000 Environmental Protection Agency Brownfield Assessment Grant in 2016. That grant was to provide funding to conduct ground contamination assessments in the Old Yellowstone District to assist the City’s OYD redevelopment efforts.
Trihydro conducted phase one and two assessments of properties for OYD business owners. They were able to complete that work for $264,784.
Council’s resolution to amend the City’s contract with Trihydro authorizes the company to conduct further environmental site assessments in the OYD.
Becher previoulsy told Oil City that OYD property owners could still take advantage of the assessments, which are free of charge for the property owners. She said the grant funding needs to be expended by Sept. 30.
