Boulder City, Nev.
Released On: July 28, 2005
The property is located about 3 miles southeast of Fort Thomas, just north of U. S. Highway 70. It contains riparian vegetation that is suitable habitat for the federally endangered Southwestern Willow Flycatcher (flycatcher). Purchase of the property, to be managed by the Salt River Project (SRP) for the benefit of the flycatcher, would partially fulfill requirements of the Endangered Species Act related to Reclamation's modifications to, and the SRP's operation of, Theodore Roosevelt Dam.
The subject EA was prepared consistent with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended. A draft of the EA was distributed on May 26, 2005, to approximately 100 entities, including public agencies, tribal governments, and interested organizations and individuals, for a 36-day public review and comment period. Six letters of comment were received.
Reclamation has determined that implementation of the proposed purchase and management of the property to benefit the willow flycatcher in perpetuity will not significantly impact the environment, and a FONSI is appropriate. A copy of the FONSI and final EA are available on the Phoenix Area Office website at http://www.usbr.gov/lc/phoenix/ . The final EA includes revisions that have been made to the draft EA to address comments received and includes copies of the comment letters received and Reclamation's responses.
Questions may be directed to Ms. Sandra Eto of the Environmental Resource Management Division, at (602) 216-3857.
