CARSON CITY, Nev. - The Bureau of Reclamation has finalized the Environmental Assessment and signed a Finding of No Significant Impact on allowing Nevada State Parks to construct a watercraft decontamination station for aquatic invasive species at the Silver Springs entrance station to the Lahontan State Recreation Area.
The wash station will help prevent the introduction of aquatic invasive species into Lahontan Reservoir and the spread of any AIS from Lahontan to other water bodies via contaminated watercraft. Lahontan Reservoir stores the natural flow of the Carson River along with water diverted from the Truckee River.
The Lahontan State Recreation Area is located approximately 18 miles west of Fallon, Nev., and 45 miles east of Carson City. The project area is south of Silver Springs, off US Highway 95 Alt.
The EA/FONSI were prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act and may be viewed online at http://www.usbr.gov/mp/nepa/nepa_projdetails.cfm?Project_ID=12350.
