Start Preamble


Bureau of Reclamation, Interior.


Notice of cancellation.


The Bureau of Reclamation is canceling plans to prepare a supplemental environmental impact statement (EIS) on the AB Lateral Hydropower Project. The hydropower project planned to use existing facilities of the Uncompahgre Valley Reclamation Project and would have been located in Montrose County, Colorado. The reason for canceling is that the project proponents, including the Uncompahgre Valley Water User's Association, have elected not to pursue approval of the project at this time.

End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


Reclamation filed a final EIS on the project in 1990 and the supplemental EIS was planned to address changes in the project plan and changes in resource evaluations. The primary federal actions on this project would have been execution of a lease of power privilege (a type of contract) with Reclamation and the granting of a Section 404 permit under the Clean Water Act from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
