DEQ extends comment period for West Glacier Water, Wastewater and Stormwater approval
HELENA – The Montana Department of Environmental Quality is extending the public comment period on the Draft Environmental Assessment for the proposed West Glacier RV Park’s associated water, wastewater and stormwater approvals. The comment period will now end March 20, 2018. The proposed facility is located west of the town of West Glacier and south of the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. It is less than one mile from the west entrance to Glacier National Park.
Glacier Park, Inc. has applied for subdivision approval specific to the public water supply system, public wastewater and collection disposal, storm water drainage collection and retention system and solid waste management for an RV park with cabins. The proposed infrastructure submitted to the Department for review and approval has previously received Preliminary Plat approval from the Flathead County Board of Commissioners. Phase I proposes 25 cabins and 42 RV spaces. Phase II proposes an additional 60 RV spaces. The RV and Cabin Village proposes to install their own Public Water Supply system, public wastewater collection and disposal system and an on-site storm water runoff collection system. Solid waste will be transported to the Flathead County landfill.
DEQ has prepared a draft Environmental Assessment for impacts associated with the proposed public water supply system, public wastewater and collection disposal, storm water drainage collection and retention system and solid waste management for an RV park with cabins.
