Farson/Eden Salinity Control Project
Eden Canal, E-5, E-6 Laterals, Sweetwater County, Wyoming, Environmental Assessment

Back to Environmental Documents

This Environmental Assessment analyzes the potential effects of the proposed Farson/Eden Canal Salinity Control Project, located in Sweetwater County, Wyoming. The federal action evaluated in this document is whether the Bureau of Reclamation should authorize the use of federal funds to line the existing Eden Canal from the Farson Lateral to the Little Sandy Creek Siphon with a shotcrete covered ethylene propylene diene Monomer liner; and to replace the existing Eden Canal E-5 and E-6 earthen laterals with a pipeline. This EA evaluates the potential impacts of the proposed action and has been prepared as required by the National Environmental Policy Act, the Council on Environmental Quality and the Department of the Interior regulations implementing NEPA. As required by the NEPA implementing regulations, if potentially significant impacts to the environment are identified, an Environmental Impact Statement will be prepared. If no significant impacts are identified, a Finding of No Significant Impact will be issued by Reclamation.
