Public Scoping Meeting | Oct. 29, 2020
The United States Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), with assistance from Price City (project sponsor), is considering needs and potential improvements within the Upper Price River Watershed to increase and maintain safe and reliable water supplies for the community, increase water conservation, and improve water delivery efficiency.
An evaluation of potential project alternatives and associated environmental impacts is required to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations. The evaluation will be documented in the form of a Watershed Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (Plan-EIS).
At this time, NRCS is initiating the first phase of the Plan-EIS process (Scoping Phase) and is requesting input from the public to identify issues and resource sensitivities. Written comments can be submitted during an open comment period starting on Oct. 15, 2020. The comment period closing date will be 30 days after the Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS is posted in the Federal Register. Please visit this website for up-to-date information about the comment period closing date.
