Tyler Creek Wasteway Stabilization: FONSI & Programmatic Final EA

The wasteway, located in the Talent Division of the Rogue River Basin Project in Jackson County, Oregon, is a bypass channel used to convey irrigation water from Keene Creek Reservoir to Ashland Lateral and Emigrant Lake when Green Springs Powerplant is out of service for maintenance or repairs.

Reclamation will proceed with efforts toward upgrading access to the wasteway and stabilizing localized areas of the wasteway channel between the pipe outlet and where Tyler Creek enters Emigrant Creek. These efforts include future contacts with affected landowners and management agencies to begin negotiations on acquiring the necessary rights-of-way/flowage easements and site-specific stabilization methods. Reclamation commits to the necessary site-specific environmental clearances and permits before stabilization or major surface disturbing activities.
