ACTION: Notice of availability. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), has prepared a plan and environmental assessment consistent with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended. Funding for salinity control projects is available through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program which is covered by a programmatic EA. The Muddy Creek plan and EA were developed to more specifically evaluate the effects associated with this type of water quality activity. Upon review of the information in the Muddy Creek EA, the State Conservationist, NRCS, Utah, made a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and the determination was made that no environmental impact statement is required to support the Muddy Creek Plan. Pursuant to section 102(2)(c) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969; the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR part 1500); and the Natural Resources Conservation Service Regulations (7 CFR part 650); the Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, gives notice that an environmental impact statement is not being prepared for the Muddy Creek Salinity Control Project, Emery and Sevier Counties, Utah. Written comments regarding this action may be submitted to: Sylvia Gillen, State conservationist, USDA/NRCS, Wallace F.

The findings of Sylvia Gillen, State Conservationist, indicate that the preparation and review of an environmental impact statement is not needed for this project. The project purpose is to reduce salt loading to the Muddy Creek which is a tributary to the Colorado River. Excessive loading is a result of seepage from the canal and delivery ditch systems and inefficient irrigation application methods and procedures. The planned works of improvement include replacement of delivery ditches with an on-farm and off-farm underground pipeline system; the installation of irrigation sprinkler systems; structures for water control; and wildlife habitat development. These enduring practices are accompanied by facilitating management practices such as; Irrigation Water Management, Wildlife Habitat Management Wetland, and Wildlife Habitat Management Upland. This Notice of a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) has been forwarded to the Environmental Protection Agency and to various Federal, State and local agencies and interested parties. Copies of the FONSI and Plan/Environmental Assessment are available by request from Sylvia Gillen, Utah State Conservationist. Basic data developed during the environmental evaluation are on file and may be reviewed by contacting Sylvia Gillen, Utah State Conservationist.
