Natural Resources Conservation Service, USDA.
Notice of Availability.
The Record of Decision (ROD) for the Coal Creek Flood Control and Parkway Final Environmental Impact Statement is now available to the public. On September 1, 2006, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) published a Final Environmental Impact Statement consistent with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, to disclose potential effects to the human environment resulting from proposed flood control improvements to Coal Creek in Cedar City, Utah. A notice of availability for the ROD was previously published in the Federal Register on October 3, 2006. Availability was delayed due to additional information about the proximity of Utah prairie dogs, a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act. The NRCS is now completing formal consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS). No construction will begin until the NRCS has received a biological opinion from the FWS. The ROD authorizes implementation of Alternative C (Replace Main Street diversion/drop structure) in conjunction with the North Field Canal Option and Parkway Option C1.
Effective Date: November 13, 2006.Start Further Info
