Impaired Streams in Big Horn County

In the Shoshone Conservation District, over 50 miles of the Shoshone River and its tributaries Crooked Creek, Whistle Creek, Foster Gulch, Polecat Creek, Sage Creek, and Big Wash are listed as impaired on Wyoming’s 202 Integrated 303(d) Report. These streams are impaired by fecal coliform levels, preventing use of their designated purposes.
