High Savery Dam & Reservoir Project

Mr. O’Grady acted as the Project Liaison for all federal and Section 404 permitting for a new 23,000 acre-feet ($33M) dam and reservoir for the Wyoming Water Development Commission (WWDC).  The State of Wyoming contracted with Mr. O’Grady’s firm in 1998 to assist them in finalization of NEPA documentation (EIS) and the acquisition of a Section 404 permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  After nearly 20 years and in excess of $5M the State of Wyoming finally received federal authorization (Section 404 permit) in the Spring of 2001, construction was initiated in that Fall and completed in 2004.
