Yellowstone Pipeline Company
- ERG completed all environmental compliance permitting for the relocation of a pipeline to move four stream crossings off of the North Fork of the Coeur d’ Alene River.
- The purpose of this project was to reduce the potential for pipeline leaks or damage adversely impacting the river.
- Since the river is already classified as impaired under the TMDL program a higher level of scrutiny was used to ensure that no sediment or other potential impacts from construction reached the river.
- A Biological Assessment completed for bull trout and wolves was accepted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on first review without any changes or substantial comments.
