This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

The environmental assessment of this federally assisted action documents that the project will not cause significant local, regional, or national impacts on the human environment. The findings of Allen Green, State Conservationist, indicate that the preparation and review of an environmental impact statement is not needed for this project.
The primary project purposes are, (1) Agricultural water management—improve water application effectiveness and reduce negative water quality and quantity impacts to surface and groundwater's including, the South Platte River. These impacts being from excessive loading of nitrates, nutrients, sediment, and salts. (2) Watershed protection—protect the soil resource base from excessive irrigation induced erosion and sedimentation, improve soil health through carbon sequestration. (3) Nonagricultural Water Management—creation and improvement of wetland and wildlife habitat as part of a three state initiative.
The planned works of improvement include, on-farm underground irrigation pipelines, on-farm concrete irrigation ditches; sprinkler irrigation systems, and structures for water control. These enduring practices are accompanied by facilitating management practices such as Irrigation Water Management.
This Notice of a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) has been forwarded to the Environmental Protection Agency and to various Federal, State and Local agencies and interested parties. Copies of the FONSI and Plan/Environmental Assessment are available by request from Allen Green, Colorado State Conservationist. Basic data developed during the environmental evaluation are on file and may be reviewed by contacting Allen Green, State Conservationist.
No administrative action on implementation of this project will be taken until 30 days after the date this Notice is published in the Federal Register.Start Signature
