Deer Flat Dam Lower Embankment Security Enhancement
Draft Environmental Assessment

The Bureau of Reclamation has issued the Deer Flat Dam Lower Embankment Security Enhancement Draft Environmental Assessment which documents the environmental effects of alternatives to correct security vulnerabilities related to motor vehicles traveling across the crest of the Lower Embankment, located southwest of Nampa, Idaho.

The Lower Embankment is one of four zoned-earthfill embankments, collectively called the Deer Flat Dams, that impound Lake Lowell. The embankments were constructed from 1906 to 1911 and make up part of the Boise Project, Arrowrock Division.

Reclamation officials presented an overview of the project at an open house requested by the Canyon County Commissioners and Canyon Highway District No. 4. on January 27, 2010 in Caldwell, Idaho.

Comments on the Draft EA were accepted through February 15, 2010.
