At the request of east and west slope water users of the Colorado River, Reclamation is considering entering into a number of long-term water contracts or agreements that would support and provide for 10,825 acre-feet of water from its upper Colorado River basin reservoirs. The water would be released to the 15-Mile Reach of the Colorado River, which is identified as habitat for endangered fish under the Upper Colorado River Endangered Species Recovery Program.
The EA was prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act to determine what, if any, effects might result from the proposed action. Reclamation studied the proposal for three years before signing a Finding of No Significant Impact. Comments received from the public were an important part of Reclamation’s NEPA process.
