Reservoirs – Casper WY

Description

The Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA) constructed water supply reservoirs northwest of Casper, Wyoming.

Casper Star-Tribune, March 3, 1935: “Drought conditions of last year prompted the excavation and construction of important and permanent reservoirs on the 33-Mile stock trail west of Casper, which links the prairie winter range with the Big Horn summer range, at a cost of $33,740. Of this sum, $30,000 was supplied through the ERA …”

It is unclear to Living New Deal whether these projects includes what are now known as Bressler Reservoir, Daly Reservoir, or possibly even Gowin-Kesecker Lake, which are located in the vicinity of Thirtythree Mile Road.
