Submit Public Comments
(Helena, MT) –Montana State Parks (MSP) (stateparks.mt.gov) is seeking public comment on a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for Facility Improvements at Hell Creek State Park, near Jordan, MT. Public Comment accepted through Thursday, July 13, 2017 at 5pm. The proposed improvements include relocating and replacing the existing 8000-gallon metal water tank with a new 25,000-gallon water tank. The existing water tank was installed in 1993 and cannot keep up with the demand for water which has increased with the addition of new park amenities and higher park visitation. The proposed new tank would provide nearly two days of water storage at the projected visitor demands and minimize closures of popular amenities. The proposal would also remove the fish cleaning station from the primary septic system and construct a dedicated system designed to handle the unique quality of the water effluent. Removal from the primary septic, would alleviate much of the burden placed on the primary system and allow both systems to function adequately.
