Pursuant to Section 102(2)(c) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, the Department of the Interior, the Central Utah Water Conservancy District, and the Utah Reclamation Mitigation and Conservation Commission, as joint leads, are initiating an Environmental Assessment of the impacts associated with the proposed restoration of the eastern portion of Lower Hobble Creek, near Springville, Utah.
