The Bureau of Reclamation has released the draft environmental documents for approval of a Warren Act contract and renewal of a right of way license to the San Luis Water District. Reclamation proposes to issue a five-year Warren Act contract to the San Luis Water District for conveyance of up to 1,500 acre-feet per year of groundwater in the San Luis Canal.
The term for pumping and conveyance would begin July 2012 and would conclude February 2017. To facilitate the pump-in, Reclamation proposes to issue a license to the San Luis Water District authority to use, operate and maintain the existing pipeline over Reclamation’s San Luis Canal right of way at Mile Post 79.67R for a period of 25 years.
The Draft Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact (EA/FONSI) were prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act and are available at http://www.usbr.gov/mp/nepa/nepa_projdetails.cfm?Project_ID=10090. If you encounter problems accessing the documents online, please call 916-978-5100 (TTY 916-978-5608) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Written comments on the Draft EA/FONSI for the proposed action must be received by close of business Wednesday, July 11, 2012
