Resorts submit sewage plan

Billings Gazette, Montana/May 15, 2007

Worland - The owner of two lodges in the Bighorn National Forest has submitted a plan to fix leaky sewage systems that caused officials to order the resorts closed.

Jim McCotter [former leader of Great Commission International], owner of Big Horn Mountain Resorts, was ordered by Bighorn National Forest Supervisor Bill Bass to shut down Deerhaven and Meadowlark Lake resorts in April because sewage from both spilled into the Tensleep Creek drainage. Frozen lines were suspected of causing both leaks.

Bass said the remedy plans for both resorts were in the process of being approved by the U.S. Forest Service and the state Department of Environmental Quality.

"We are in the process of sending him (McCotter) the authorization to begin remedy because he has been on hold as far as touching the sewer systems up until now," Bass said.
