The project proposed by the Gila River Indian Community (Community)/Pima-Maricopa Irrigation Project (P-MIP) would use Federal funds from the Bureau of Reclamation. After the public scoping period has ended, Reclamation will prepare an Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate the potential environmental consequences of the proposed project. The Community/P-MIP and Bureau of Indian Affairs will serve as cooperating agencies in the preparation of the EA.
The P-MIP is constructing an extensive irrigation system to serve farmlands within the Community. The Casa Blanca Canal is one of the major irrigation delivery canals of this system. The purpose of the project is to improve delivery service by enhancing the efficiency of the irrigation system and by providing more flexibility in its operations to respond to changing needs and conditions.
You are encouraged to offer comments on the scope of the upcoming EA, including potential environmental issues and alternatives to the proposed project that would meet the stated purpose and need. Your comments should be submitted by June 2, 2011, to be considered in the Draft EA. Comments can be mailed to Mr. John McGlothlen at the Bureau of Reclamation, Phoenix Area Office, 6150 West Thunderbird Road, Glendale, Arizona 85306; or faxed to 623-773-6486; or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
