A proposed multi-million-dollar aquatic center in Saratoga could sink or swim based on answers to questions about budgets and financial risks to the town. Nick Haderlie has spent the past year putting together a feasibility study on building an indoor water-sports facility in Saratoga.

It’s safe to go in the water again. Saratoga Lake is free of rotenone and open for use again, although all the fish are gone until next year. The number of yellow perch found in the lake after last month’s fish kill-off surprised even the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. The WGFD took the drastic step of killing all the fish in the lake when invasive yellow perch were found in it last year. If the yellow perch had escaped, they had the potential to harm the critical fisheries downstream in the North Platte River, such as the Miracle Mile. Photo of Saratoga Lake courtesy WGFD.
