It’s Flood Season! Here are some tips to help you prepare.

As the runoff season come into full swing, the chance for localized flooding increases.  If you live near waterways, or in drainage areas, preparing early can make a big difference in mitigating the potential for flooding and decreasing the chance of damage to your property.  For more local flood information, contact our Emergency Management office.

The following information contains excerpts from a FEMA Region VIII email:

See below for great tips to prepare you, your household, and your community.  Lots of additional info can be found at
When it’s not flooding – prepare by taking action:
  • Know your flood risk.
  • Make a flood emergency plan.
  • Build or restock your emergency preparedness kit, include a flashlight, batteries, cash, and first aid supplies.
  • Consider buying flood insurance.
  • Familiarize yourself with local emergency plans. Know where to go and how to get there should you need to get to higher ground, the highest level of a building, or to evacuate.
  • Stay tuned to phone alerts, TV, or radio for weather updates, emergency instructions, or evacuation orders.
Remember flooding basics:
  • Turn Around, Don’t Drown!
  • Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down, and 2 feet of water can sweep your vehicle away.
  • If there is a chance of flash flooding, move immediately to higher ground. Flash floods are the #1 cause of weather-related deaths in the US.
  • If floodwaters rise around your car but the water is not moving, abandon the car and move to higher ground. Do not leave the car and enter moving water.
  • Avoid camping or parking along streams, rivers, and creeks during heavy rainfall. These areas can flood quickly and with little warning.
Social media posts for you to steal & share – spread the word:


  • #Floods occur in every U.S. state. Make sure your family is prepared & take action: #FloodSafety
  • #FloodSafety Tips: Charge mobile devices. Locate flashlights & radio. Tell friends/family your location in case of power loss.
  • Gather the supplies you may need in case a flood leaves you w/out power, water or gas. Supply list: #FloodSafety
  • During severe weather Wireless Emergency Alerts can save your life. Watch how: #FloodSafety
  • Don’t let your business end up in a dumpster. Make a #FloodSafety plan today:
  • Get your communication ON when the power’s OFF by packing a hand-crank radio, solar or car phone charger & batteries. #PrepareAthon


  • Do you know where your family will be during a flood? Make a plan to connect during disasters by text, e-mail, social media & cell and practice your plan today. #FloodSafety
  • In case you are not together when authorities issue a flood watch or flood warning, practice how you will communicate with each other. Sending texts is often faster than making a phone call. Keep important numbers written down in your wallet, not just in your phone. #FloodSafety
  • Floods can happen at any time!  Take simple steps to protect your family and property from the damaging impact of floods. Stay afloat by participating in America’s PrepareAthon grassroots campaign by registering  #PrepareAthon
  • In a flood, a little water can do a lot of damage. Did you know that just 6 inches of flood water can cause thousands of dollars of damage, 12 inches is enough to float and carry away a small vehicle and 18 to 24 inches of rushing water can be enough to float and carry away a full size pickup truck or SUV? Get prepared now for floods #FloodSafety

Request for Qualifications and Proposal

Request for Qualifications and Proposal

Description of Project:

The Lincoln County old stone jail (now used as a county office building), located at 520 Topaz Street in Kemmerer, Wyoming was built in 1913 and extensively remodeled in the late 1980s. The interior was totally stripped to the rock walls and dirt floor, however, no significant exterior work was done. The building is sandstone that was quarried locally. The columns on the front of the building, various sills and some rocks show deterioration. The grout joints also need to be inspected for deterioration and the mortar needs to be checked for suitability of the mortar material. The project, which may need to be phased, is a request for a proposal to perform a complete masonry restoration and repair of the existing masonry.


The building is in use Monday through Friday and will need to remain in use for the duration of the project. There are multiple entrances to the building so an entrance may be blocked for a period of time to facilitate work. The initial funding available is approximately $50,000. If necessary work will exceed that amount, the contractor is requested to propose a phased project that considers both the funding available and the work that can logically be done in a phased approach while not unnecessarily escalating the overall cost due to the phasing of the project.


The intent is to hire a qualified Masonry Contractor to perform all phases of the project through completion.

  5.

These notices shall satisfy two separate but related procedural requirements for
activities to be undertaken by Lincoln County.


On or about December 5, 2015 Lincoln County will submit a request to the Wyoming
Business Council on behalf of Lincoln County for the release of Community
Development Block Grant funds from the Department of Housing and Urban
Development to undertake a project known as the Old Prison Demolition, for the
purpose of demolishing the former law enforcement building located on Block 44 of the
2″d addition to Kemmerer, Wyoming estimated to cost $640,560 including $320,000 in
funding from the Community Development Block Grant program.
Lincoln County has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the
human environment. An Environmental Impact Statement under the National
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), therefore, is not required. Additional project
information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file at 925 Sage
Ave., Suite 302 in Kemmerer, WYand may be examined or copied weekdays between
8 a.m. and noon and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. (except holidays).


Any individual, group, or agency disagreeing with this determination or wishing to
comment on the project may submit written comments to Lincoln County at the above
address or to the above e-mail address. All comments received by December 4, 2015
will be considered by Lincoln County prior to authorizing submission of a request for
release of funds. Comments should specify that they are addressing the Old Prison
Demolition Notice.


Lincoln County certifies to the Wyoming Business Council that Jerry T. Harmon,
Chairman of the Lincoln County Board of Commissioners consents to accept the
jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in
relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been
satisfied. The Wyoming Business Council approval of the certification satisfies its
responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities, and allows Lincoln County
to use Program funds.


The Wyoming Business will accept objections to its release of funds and the Lincoln
County’s certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission
date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are made on one
of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of
the Lincoln County;(b) Lincoln County has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or
finding required by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development regulations at
24 CFR Part 58; (c) the grant recipient has committed funds or incurred costs not
authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before the approval of a release of funds by the Wyoming
Business Council; or (d) another Federal agency, acting pursuant to 40 CFR part 1504,
has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of
environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with
the required procedures of 24 CFR Part 58 and shall be addressed to the Wyoming
Business Council, 214 West 15th Street, Cheyenne, WY 82002. Potential objectors
should contact the Wyoming Business Council to verify the actual last day of the
objection period.
