For Release: May 09, 2011

The Bureau of Reclamation is seeking public input on a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the rehabilitation of its Date Street 100 and Date Street 200 Buildings in Boulder City, Nevada. Under the proposed action, Reclamation would rehabilitate these historic structures for training, conference, office, and records storage purposes. The new designs and appearance of the buildings would be compatible with the Boulder City Historic District in which they are located.

The Draft EA, prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), evaluates a proposed action and a "no action" alternative and addresses the potential effects to various critical resources.

Comments from the public on the Draft EA are appreciated and will be considered in the final version of the document. Reclamation will use this Draft EA, available on-line at, and any comments received to determine if the proposed action will have any significant impacts. If none are identified, Reclamation will issue a Final EA and a Finding of No Significant Impact. If significant issues are identified, Reclamation will consider the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement.

Comments will be accepted on this document until June 10, 2011. They can be sent to Ms. Faye Streier (LC-2620), Lower Colorado Region NEPA Coordinator, Bureau of Reclamation, P.O. Box 61470, Boulder City, Nevada 89006 or to

If you wish to request a paper copy of the Draft EA or have questions, please contact Ms. Streier at 702-293-8132.
