Cayuse Cove Slope Stabilization Project Draft EA

The Grand Coulee Power Office is proposing to stabilize the shoreline and halt bank erosion at Cayuse Cove on the Spokane Arm of Lake Roosevelt in Lincoln County, Washington.

The primary issue addressed by this proposal is the continued erosion of the shoreline at Cayuse Cove and the associated potential for exposure and loss of cultural resources. Natural and human-caused erosion, including that from wave action, seasonal reservoir drawdowns, and boating, is causing this erosion. Action is needed to halt shoreline erosion at Cayuse Cove, with minimum ground disturbance to prevent inadvertent exposure of sensitive resources.

The comment period for the draft Environmental Assessment has closed. A final EA will be published fall 2019. Questions on the project can be directed to Rebecca Thompson, Project Manager by email to rthompson@usbr.gov.
