The NRCS, as the lead Federal Agency, is working with the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food and the Bureau of Land Management as cooperating agencies to rehabilitate the existing Green River Diversion Dam (diversion) system that will continue to provide water delivery to water rights holders. The ROD constitutes the NRCS's final decision to implement the diversion improvements, based upon the analysis in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (Notice of Availability 79 FR 36511, June 27, 2014), which identified the “Replace In Place With Passages” option as the environmentally preferred alternative. The ROD adopted this alternative.
