Fremont-Madison Irrigation District Title Transfer Environmental Assessment

The Bureau of Reclamation has issued an Environmental Assessment Finding of No Significant Impact for the transfer of title and responsibility for certain facilities in the Minidoka and Teton Basin Projects to the Fremont-Madison Irrigation District.

The Fremont-Madison Conveyance Act (Public Law 108-85) directs the Secretary of the Interior, through the Bureau of Reclamation, to transfer all right, title, and interest of the United States in certain facilities, land, and a water right permit of the Minidoka and Teton Basin Projects to FMID.

The Fremont-Madison Conveyance Act mandated a change of ownership; therefore, Reclamation analyzed two alternatives in the environmental assessment: the no action alternative and the proposed action of transferring title as directed in the Fremont-Madison Conveyance Act. Reclamation found that the transfer will have no significant effect on the environment.
