Animas-La Plata
Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement

The Department of the Interior, through the Bureau of Reclamation and in cooperation with the United States Environmental Protection Agency, and the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe and the Southern Ute Indian Tribes, has prepared this Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (FSEIS). This FSEIS is prepared under the provisions of Public Law (P.L.) 93-638, the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act and the National Environmental Policy Act.

The purpose and need for the proposed federal action is:

... to implement the Settlement Act by providing the Ute Tribes an assured long-term water supply and water acquisition fund in order to satisfy the Tribes' senior water rights claims as quantified in the Settlement Act, and to provide for identified M&I water needs in the Project area." [Federal Register Notice, January 4, 1999]

The FSEIS is comprised of five documents.
