In 2007, Reclamation released an Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate a native fish restoration project that involved the construction of a fish barrier, application of rotenone, and reintroduction of several species of federally listed fish in lower Bonita Creek. The project was implemented in late 2008. In 2009, three species of nonnative fish were again detected in lower Bonita Creek. Biologists believe the continued persistence of these nonnative fish may jeopardize the existing native fish assemblage in Bonita Creek.
Reclamation has prepared a Revised Supplement to the 2007 EA to examine the environmental consequences of the proposed reapplication of rotenone in lower Bonita Creek. Based upon the Revised Supplement to the EA, Reclamation has made a preliminary determination that a Finding of No Significant Impact is appropriate for this proposed action, and an environmental impact statement is not required. However, no final decision will be made until all comments from the public are fully considered.
A copy of the Revised Supplement can be obtained by calling Reclamation's Environmental Resource Management Division at (623) 773-6251, by e-mailing email@example.com, or by downloading it from the Phoenix Area Office website at http://www.usbr.gov/lc/phoenix.
Comments should be mailed to John McGlothlen at the Bureau of Reclamation, Phoenix Area Office, PXAO-1500, 6150 West Thunderbird Rd., Glendale, AZ. 85306-4001or faxed to (623) 773-6481, no later than January 10, 2011. Questions may be directed to Mr. McGlothlen at (623) 773-6256.
