The 1988 Umatilla Basin Project Act (102 Stat. 2791, Public Law 100-557) provided Reclamation with the authority to purchase land to benefit fisheries resources. In addition, the Oxbow property may be able to accommodate recreational, research, or educational activities. The 222 acres were acquired in separate transactions in 2000.
Several proposals for activities or features at the Oxbow property have already been identified. Reclamation is requesting specific information about these proposals. However, before any decisions are made about the management of the Oxbow site, Reclamation will complete an environmental assessment under the National Environmental Policy Act.
To be placed on a mailing list, provide information, or identify possible social and environmental impacts or concerns, please contact Tanya Sommer, Bureau of Reclamation, Lower Columbia Area Office, 825 NE Multnomah Street, Suite 1110, Portland OR 97232, or call (503) 872-2846. Comments are requested by March 3.
