JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Crews have disconnected a water pumping station because of a slow-moving landslide in western Jackson.
Town officials said Tuesday the pump was taken out of service because of significant new damage from the slide.
The slide was discovered April 4 on a hill above Budge Drive near West Broadway, and the ground is moving about an inch a day.
Four houses and two apartment buildings have been evacuated while officials consider ways to stabilize the hillside.
Crews plan to start work Wednesday on a massive buttress to slow the slide. The Town Council authorized up to $700,000 for the project.
Officials say they don't believe there's any danger of a catastrophe.
