On Thursday August 30th, Butte-Silver Bow, Atlantic Richfield, the State of Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold community design workshops concentrating on future use in the upper Silver Bow Creek, Silver Bow Creek, and Blacktail Creek corridors. The workshops will be held at Butte Brewery conference space at Noon and 6 p.m.
The community design workshops are a continuing conversation about final land use in the project areas known as Northside Tailings, Diggings East, Buffalo Gulch, Blacktail Creek and the Butte Reduction Works.
The meeting structure will be informal, with most of the conversation taking place in facilitated small working groups. Attendees will be asked to consider the corridor as it is now and how they may like to use the area in the future. The event is family-friendly and will incorporate children’s perspectives through age-appropriate activities.
Facilitation will be provided by Butte-Silver Bow and representatives of the technical teams responsible for engineering and design of the clean-up project for the corridor. Representatives from Atlantic Richfield, Montana Department of Environmental Quality and the Environmental Protection Agency will be in attendance to address questions.
