Released On: April 01, 2004
Reclamation's Lower Columbia Area Office released the report, called "Finding of No Significant Impact and Programmatic Final Environmental Assessment for the Tyler Creek Wasteway Stabilization." The report evaluates potential environmental impacts associated with the stabilization efforts.
The purposes of action are to:
Correct existing localized streambank damage in the wasteway.
Minimize or prevent future streambank erosion and degradation in the wasteway.
Provide for future maintenance of the wasteway.
Reclamation examined a range of alternatives, including a No Action alternative, and concludes that implementation of the preferred alternative would have no significant impact on the quality of the human environment or the natural and cultural resources of the area. Additional site-specific environmental clearances would be obtained before stabilizing or major surface-disturbing activities were undertaken.
For more information: The FONSI and Programmatic Final EA are available for review at the main public libraries in Ashland, Central Point, Eagle Point, Grants Pass, Jacksonville, Medford, Talent, and White City as well as at Reclamation's Lower Columbia Area Office in Portland. They are also available for public review at www.usbr.gov/pn/programs/tyler/index.html.
