Hedquist Construction seeks increased river flow to address North Platte Bridge

(Natrona County, Wyo.) - Hedquist Construction, Inc. has requested a waiver from the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality, Water Quality Division for a temporary increase in turbidity in the North Platte River in Natrona County. Activity in the North Platte River is normally limited to a ten Nephelometric Turbidity Units( NTU )increase. Approval of this request would allow an exceedance of this limit for up to 180 working days. The construction is to follow the WDEQ Water Quality Rules and Regulations, which allow for temporary elevated levels of turbidity in certain circumstances. Proposed activities from Hedquist Construction include bridge reconstruction on Brian Stock Trail at the North Platte River Bridge in Casper.
