2015-11-24 11:26:00.0 The Marble Bluff Dam and Pyramid Lake Fishway, Washoe Project, was constructed between 1973 and 1975. The dam is located 3.5 miles upstream from Pyramid Lake. It is a zoned earthfill structure with a height of 22 feet and crest length of 1,622 feet, and it has a capacity of 50 cubic feet per second. <P> It functions to halt erosion within the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe’s Reservation and controls water used by the Pyramid Lake Fishway. The Pyramid Lake Fishway extends from Marble Bluff Dam about 3 miles improve the ability of the cui-ui and Lahontan cutthroat trout to migrate to their spawning habitats above the dam in the Truckee River. <P> For more information about Marble Bluff Dam, please visit: <a href=""></a> <P> Reclamation Expands Number of Public Workshops for Kachess Emergency Temporary Floating Pumping Plant Project
2015-11-24 08:25:00.0 YAKIMA, Wash. – The Bureau of Reclamation is beginning its public scoping process for the Roza Irrigation District’s proposed Kachess Emergency Temporary Floating Pumping Plant (KETFPP) Project. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and for better regional coverage, there will now be three public scoping workshops: <P> December 7, 2015 - 4 pm to 7 pm: Hal Holmes Center, 209 N. Ruby Street Ellensburg, WA <P> December 8, 2015 - 4 pm to 7 pm: U.S. Forest Service Cle Elum Ranger District, 803 W. 2nd Street Cle Elum, WA <P> December 9, 2015 - 4 pm to 7 pm: Best Western, 1849 Quail Lane Sunnyside, WA <P> The purpose of these scoping workshops is to give the public an opportunity to discuss the proposed project and identify issues and concerns relating to environmental impacts, mitigation measures, and potential alternatives. <P> The proposed KETFPP would consist of a temporary floating pump facility with the ability to access up to 50,000 acre-feet of water from Kachess Reservoir that otherwise would be inaccessible due to low water elevations. This water could then be pumped into the Yakima River system to supply Roza Irrigation District with temporary emergency drought relief in 2016 should conditions warrant. It will also allow for minimum flows in the river for fisheries benefits until the reservoir returns to normal operational levels. <P> Further information on this proposed project can be found at: The NEPA document is anticipated to be issued in early 2016. <P> The workshop facilities are physically accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for other special assistance should be directed to Candace McKinley by calling (509) 575-5848, or email to by Nov. 24, 2015. <P> In addition to comments received at the scoping workshops, written comments will also be accepted through Dec. 18, 2015.

2015-11-23 16:00:00.0 PHOENIX – Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Water & Science Jennifer Gimbel today signed an agreement with the New Mexico Central Arizona Project Entity (CAP Entity) that initiates a process to thoroughly evaluate the full range of proposed water management alternatives for the upper region of the Gila River and examine their impacts and costs. Today's agreement is the result of a decision by the State of New Mexico to move forward in evaluating a potential diversion project. It does not constitute a green light for the proposed project or any other water management alternative. Rather it is a procedural step that lays the framework for further evaluation. <P> "No final decision has been made on the construction of a dam along the upper region of the Gila River nor has any decision been made about any non-diversion alternative to a dam," said Gimbel, who oversees the Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Department of the Interior agency that will lead the evaluation of alternatives for the New Mexico Central Arizona Project Unit. "Interior is ensuring that a robust review process will be completed under the National Environmental Policy Act, the Endangered Species Act, the National Historic Preservation Act, and other environmental laws before a final decision is made. This review process will include early development of a full-range of alternatives to meet water supply needs in southwestern New Mexico, which will inform the CAP Entity, Interior, and the public as analysis proceeds and will provide ample opportunities for public participation," said Gimbel. <P> By statute, the Gila River Water Project is a mechanism to make water available for use in New Mexico and is one of a number of projects in the Colorado River Basin that are part of Reclamation's Central Arizona Project. Under the Arizona Water Settlements Act of 2004 (2004 AWSA), the Secretary of the Interior does not have the discretion to deny signing the agreement to further evaluate the Gila River Water Project. The discretion to approve or not approve a project occurs during the environmental review process pursuant to applicable laws and policies. <P> As authorized by the 2004 AWSA, the State of New Mexico was given the ability to decide whether or not to further consider the construction of a diversion unit along the Gila River. On November 24, 2014, the State notified the Secretary of the Interior that it intended to pursue this option. This notification triggered a one-year statutory timeline to execute an agreement between Interior and the New Mexico Central Arizona Project Entity. <P> Although many of the terms in the agreement are prescribed by and required under federal law, Interior and the CAP Entity negotiated supplemental terms that specify activities that the CAP Entity and the Bureau of Reclamation will undertake during evaluation of the water management proposal, including activities related to analysis, planning, and potential contracting as well as the environmental review. <P> Through the National Environmental Policy Act process, the Bureau of Reclamation, working with the New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission, as co-lead under the 2004 AWSA, Tribes, and other federal and non-federal cooperating agencies, will assess possible impacts and necessary mitigation efforts for each alternative identified.  The process will include extensive dialogue with and input from stakeholders and the general public.  Topics for analysis in the review process will be addressed during public scoping, but will include impacts to fish and wildlife, hydrology, land use, economics, cultural resources, recreation, and ecosystem services. The agreement also calls for cost-benefit analysis of all alternatives in accordance with Federal Principles, Requirements, and Guidelines for Water and Land Related Resources Implementation Studies. The comprehensive analysis will assess economic feasibility and financial capability as part of the Federal decision-making process. Once the evaluation process concludes, as required under law, the Secretary of the Interior will issue a Record of Decision regarding a final alternative for the project as soon as before December 2019 but no later than December 2030.   <P> BACKGROUND <P> The Colorado River Basin Project Act of 1968 authorized the Secretary of the Interior to enter into contracts with New Mexico water users for the consumptive use of Gila River water based upon the delivery of an equivalent amount of CAP water to downstream users in Arizona. The 2004 AWSA modified terms of the 1968 act, reducing the amount of Gila River water that can be diverted, and provided funding for construction of a New Mexico Unit or other water utilization alternatives. <P> The Central Arizona Project is a multipurpose water resource development and management project that provides irrigation, municipal and industrial water, power, flood control, outdoor recreation, and environmental enhancement. The project also provides delivery of Tribal homeland water, partial settlement of Indian water rights claims, and economic benefits accruing from the leasing of Indian agricultural water rights to municipal entities. <P> <a href="" target="_blank">View Signed Agreement</a> <P> <P> Team 9 - Job Hazard Analysis
2015-11-23 11:26:00.0 “Team 9 will review the current requirements for Job Hazard Analyses (JHAs) contained in Reclamation Safety and Health Standards Section 4, and will more clearly describe when and how JHAs should be developed, communicated, and documented. The team will suggest additional recommendations to improve the process including a Reclamation standard JHA form”, said Chau B. Nguyen, Team 9 lead, Chief of Power Office, Lower Colorado Region. <P> The team will develop the report included the specific cost estimates for implementing the proposed improvements. These cost estimates also identify cost savings to include the reduction in time to prepare JHAs, efficiency of work, etc. and intangible benefits such as quality of JHAs and accident reduction. <P> The team will review the current JHA process and provide recommendations to meet the ten following deliverables: <P> <ol> <li>Provide a recommendation on the minimum contents of Reclamation JHAs.</li> <li>Provide a recommendation to use a single Reclamation-wide form, forms for particular activities (Construction, Power, O&M, and Natural Resources), or allowing offices to use their own forms as long as they contain the minimum content.</li> <li>Depending on the recommendations from the above deliverable, prepare an assessment of alternative methods for creating a library of JHAs that would be readily accessible to supervisors to allow them to generate high quality JHAs with minimum investment of time.</li> <li>Provide recommendations on the approval process to ensure effectiveness and timeliness.</li> <li>Provide recommendations on the post-work review process to ensure effectiveness and timeliness.</li> <li>Provide a recommendation on recordkeeping and retention requirements for JHAs.</li> <li>Provide a recommendation for incorporating the JHA process with accidents, incidents, and “near miss” investigation.</li> <li>Provide a project plan for accomplishing the recommendations.</li> <li>Evaluate and recommend who will implement the actions from Team 9 and oversight the implementation.</li> <li>Obtain a leadership decision for implementation actions to be taken.</li> <li>Review the implemented JHA process after one year of implementation.</li> </ol> <P> “JHA is a method for identifying and evaluating hazards associated with a particular job or task. It can also be call a "Job Safety Analysis," Nguyen stated. <P> JHAs are instrumental for planning safety into the work, identifying task specific hazards, and training employees in the hazards associated with their assignments. <P> Reclamation Issues Record of Decision for the Newlands Project Resource Management Plan Final Environmental Impact Statement

2015-11-20 13:44:00.0 <em>From Roseann Gonzales on behalf of the Denver Senior Leadership.</em> <P> Communications and engagement with one another is important to all of us. Last January, Reclamation's Denver Office Leadership Team launched the Idea Pipeline pilot in an effort to improve communications across Denver organizations and to provide a forum for sharing ideas. Since its launch, the Pipeline received 81 postings. In addition, 224 of our 891 employees in Denver have logged into the system to view the postings. Of that, 31 people submitted postings and eight posted more than once. In reviewing the use, benefit, and cost of continuing this system, we have determined that the majority of the input received in the Idea Pipeline could have been addressed by individual directorates and would have resulted in more timely feedback. In addition, much of the information or clarification that resulted from the input received was not necessarily enhanced by the voting feature of the software behind the Idea Pipeline. <P> Therefore, the Denver Office Leadership Team has determined that it is not the best expenditure of funds to renew the software subscription at this time. Based upon this participation and seeking to provide continued and even increased engagement with employees, the Denver Directors will be launching Idea Pipeline 2.0. <P> Idea Pipeline 2.0 will be managed through a system of dedicated organizational email addresses. An address is being set up for each directorate in Denver. Your director will provide more information on the specifics associated with your organization’s mailbox. <P> The Denver Director's Corner will still be published on the Denver Intranet site at and stories published in the Denver News at <a href=""></a>. <P> Thank you for your participation over the last year and the Denver Office Leadership Team looks forward to a continued dialog. <P> <P> Reclamation Releases Final Environmental Documents for the Contra Costa Water District Exchange with Alameda County Water District and Zone 7

2015-11-18 13:06:00.0 Rainwater flows over parking lots, lawns, sidewalks, picking up debris, chemicals, dirt, and other pollutants. Storm water can flow into a storm drain system or directly into a lake or stream. Anything that enters a storm sewer system flows untreated into water bodies we use for swimming, fishing, and drinking. Polluted runoff is the nation’s greatest threat to clean water. <P> McIntyre Gulch flows across the Denver Federal Center and converges with Lakewood Gulch and then flows into the Platte River. Wildlife uses McIntyre Gulch, the Agricultural Ditch, Downing Reservoir and a storm water pond on the Denver Federal Center as water sources. Downstream the Platte River supports fisheries and other community uses. <P> The Denver Federal Center's storm drain collects rain and snow melt from drain inlets and flows directly into McIntyre Gulch. Any contaminants from the Denver Federal Center that enter the Gulch and the Platte River compromise water quality, fish, wildlife and downstream water supplies. Care must be taken to ensure that Denver Federal Center runoff does not degrade water quality. <P> <a href="">Learn more.</a> <P> Reclamation to Temporarily Close the Delta Cross Channel Gates
2015-11-17 14:17:00.0 WALNUT GROVE, Calif. – The Bureau of Reclamation will close the Delta Cross Channel Gates on Wednesday, Nov. 18, at approximately 9 a.m. The temporary closure is needed to meet the State Water Resources Control Board Decision D-1641 requirements on the Sacramento River at Rio Vista. The gates will reopen on Friday, Nov. 20, at approximately 9 a.m. Please be advised that the gates may need to be closed on short notice, so please check the status prior to travel. <P> The Delta Cross Channel Gates control the diversion channel near Walnut Grove about 30 miles south of Sacramento. When the gates are open, fresh water is drawn from the Sacramento River into the interior of the Sacramento/San Joaquin Delta through Snodgrass Slough and the Mokelumne River. The open gates also allow boat traffic to pass. When closed, the gates prevent juvenile salmon from being diverted from their migratory route along the Sacramento River into the interior Delta. <P> Boaters are advised to check the status of the gates. The closing and opening of the gates generally take about one hour. <P> Information on gate operations can be accessed on Reclamation’s Central Valley Operations website at <a href=""></a> or by calling 916-979-2194 or 916-979-2683. <P> For additional information, please call the Public Affairs Office at 916-978-5100 (TTY 800-877-8339). <P> Team 10 Acquisition Review
2015-11-17 07:00:00.0 “Team 10 will be reviewing the current acquisition process to determine if there are gaps for potentially unsafe risks, and then provide recommendations based on the analysis,” said Shelly Wiser, FBMS Program Manager for the UC Region and the lead for Team 10. <P> Team 10 will develop a process to ensure a safety review of acquisitions for materials posing a safety or occupational health risk. The team recognized the importance of ensuring that there are safety checks integrated into the procurement process so that Reclamation is not acquiring products that pose an undue risk. <P> The team will use the following questions as the starting point for reviewing the current process: <P> <ul> <li>Are there alternative materials available without the same hazard exposure? </li> <li>Are personnel properly trained to handle the materials when they arrive? </li> <li>Are there adequate provisions for storage of the materials when they arrive? </li> <li>Is the acquiring office aware of reporting responsibilities?</li> </ul> <P> Team 10 will develop a final report that includes the following: <P> <blockquote> Current process<br /> Gaps<br /> Potential risks<br /> Recommendations and Implementation Plan</blockquote> <P> <P> San Joaquin River Restoration Program Releases Final Environmental Documents, Provides $1.9 Million for Cordeniz Basin Project
