SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Department of the Interior, the Utah Reclamation Mitigation and Conservation Commission, and the Central Utah Water Conservancy District have completed evaluating the impacts of the proposed East Hobble Creek Restoration Project. The Final Environmental Assessment has been completed in conjunction with the June Sucker Recovery Implementation Program, and provides an analysis of the anticipated environmental effects of a proposed restoration effort on a portion of lower Hobble Creek, near Springville, Utah. This restoration effort is intended to facilitate the recovery of the June sucker, a federally listed endangered species, through improvement of spawning habitat and maintenance of stream flow. The effort analyzed included the potential restoration of approximately 2 miles of stream channel, modification or removal of several existing barriers to fish passage, use of the Utah Lake System Hobble Creek Valve Station for supplemental stream-flow releases, and enhancement of the existing water supply.
