VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:09 Apr 18, 2006 Jkt 208001 Clarke County Water Supply Project, Clarke County, IA Natural Resources Conservation Service, USDA. ACTION: Notice of intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Pursuant to section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969; the Council on Environmental Quality Guidelines (40 CFR part 1500); and the Natural Resources Conservation Service Guidelines (7 CFR part 650); the Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture gives notice that an environmental impact statement (EIS) is being prepared for the Clarke County Water Supply Project, Clarke County, Iowa. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Richard Van Klaveren, State Conservationist, or David Beck, Planning Leader, 210 Walnut Street, Room 693, Des Moines, IA 50309–2180. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The environmental evaluation of this Federally assisted action indicates that the project may cause significant local, regional, or national impacts on the environment. As a result of these findings, Richard Van Klaveren, NRCS State Conservationist, has determined that the preparation and review of an environmental impact statement (EIS) is needed for this project. This project involves the development of a plan to develop a multipurpose watershed plan near Osceola in southern Iowa. The Clarke County Water Supply project area is 32,946 acres northwest of Osceola including the upper portions of both Squaw Creek Watershed and South Squaw Creek Watershed. The Clarke County Reservoir Commission is the project sponsor. The Commission includes members from the following entities: Cities of Murray, Osceola, and Woodburn; Osceola Water Board, Clarke County Board of Supervisors, Clarke County Conservation Board, Clarke County Soil and Water Conservation District, Clarke County Development Corporation, and Southern Iowa Rural Water Association. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The sponsors’ main purposes are to develop a lake that will serve as a regional water supply and provide water-based recreation. Other objectives include fish and wildlife habitat development, agricultural pollution control, and water-based recreation. The NRCS planning assistance is being provided under the authority of the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act, Public Law 83–566. The NRCS has initiated studies to determine the extent of natural resource problems and needs in accordance with the sponsors’ objectives. The NRCS studies indicate that the sponsors’ objectives of water supply, water-based recreation, fish and wildlife development, and agricultural pollution control are likely to be economically feasible. Additional study for these project purposes will be completed. Five study sites on the main channel of North Squaw Creek were initially identified for possible multiple-purpose reservoir sites. An interdisciplinary team field review was conducted in 2004. Two study sites were dropped from further consideration in January, 2005, after it was determined that the sites provided insufficient water during dry periods to meet current and future water demands projected for the community of 3 million gallons per day. A preliminary alternative plan is being developed at each of the three remaining study sites. The three preliminary alternatives include permanent pool sizes of 590 acres, 692 acres, and 836 acres respectively. Each of the three alternative plans that is carried through detailed planning will be compared against a no action plan as a basis to determine effects. The sponsors will select an alternative plan based on the effects, economic evaluation, and the extent that it meets their objectives. The project will include one multi-purpose reservoir with the purposes of water supply and waterbased recreation. Fish and wildlife habitat development will be planned as a part of the reservoir and adjacent lands acquired for recreation, mitigation if required, and other public purposes. Best management practices may be included in the planned project in order to further protect both the new surface water supply and West Lake, which serves as the current water supply source for Osceola and rural water. West Lake is located on South Squaw Creek about two miles west of Osceola and is in the project area. An open house informational meeting was held in Osceola on December 1, 2004, to initiate the planning process and obtain public input.
