Final Environmental Impact Statement
City of Albuquerque Drinking Water Project

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation Albuquerque Area Office (Reclamation) and the City of Albuquerque (City) have jointly prepared a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the City of Albuquerque Drinking Water Project. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is a cooperating agency. The Drinking Water Project is the main component of the Albuquerque Water Resources Management Strategy, adopted by the City Council, which aims to efficiently use existing water resources and develop a safe and sustainable water supply for City residents to the year 2060. The City proposes to construct and operate a surface water diversion on the Rio Grande, with associated water treatment and transmission facilities, to fully consumptively use its San Juan Chama water to provide a sustainable drinking water supply for its citizens. The FEIS presents environmental effects of No Action and three action alternatives. The preferred diversion method has been identified as a new inflatable surface diversion dam.
