Download as PDF cchase on PROD1PC60 with NOTICES 26480 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 87 / Friday, May 5, 2006 / Notices to develop flood scenarios and guide design criteria for strucures such as Dover Dam. The Corps has determined the dam may not safely accommodate flooding during these theoretical probable maximum flood (PMF) events. e. In the event of a PMF, the pool behind Dover is estimated to reach or exceed elevation 940.5 msl. For context, the project will be completely overtopped at elevations above 931 msl, the current spillway elevation is 916 msl and the project was designed for flood waters reaching only 936.8 msl. The concrete gravity dam is also believed to be unstable against sliding under these conditions due to known faulting and uncertain foundation bedrock quality. f. The EIS and Evaluation Report will consider the structural integrity of the dam, its ability to accommodate flood waters as well as transportation, noise, terrestrial, aquatic, economic, environmental justice and cultural resource issues associated with the performance of the dam. The EIS and Evaluation Report will recommend any modifications necessary to ensure the long-term safe performance of the structure as originally intended. g. Modifications to meet current design standards could include raising the dam height, constructing an auxiliary spillway, modifying the existing spillway, constructing a stilling basin downstream of the dam, and anchoring the structure to prevent sliding. 3. Public Participation: a. The Corps of Engineers will conduct a public scoping meeting (see DATES) to gain input from interested agencies, organizations, and the general public concerning the content of the EIS, issues and impacts to be addressed in the EIS, and alternatives that should be analyzed. The meeting will be held at the McDonald/Marlite Conference Center, 143 McDonald Driver Southwest, New Philadelphia, OH. Phone: (330) 308–5009. b. The Corps invites full public participation to promote open communication and better decisionmaking. All persons and organizations that have an interest in the Dover Dam Project or the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District system of flood damage reduction and the environment are urged to participate in this NEPA evaluation process. Assistance will be provided upon request to anyone having difficulty with learning how to participate. c. Public comments are welcomed anytime throughout the NEPA process. Formal opportunities for public participation include: (1) Public VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:48 May 04, 2006 Jkt 208001 meetings to be held near the community of Dover; (2) Anytime during the NEPA process via mail, telephone or e-mail; (3) During Review and Comment on the Draft EIS; and (4) Review of the Final EIS. Schedules and locations will be announced in local news media. Interested parties should submit contact information to be included on the mailing list for public distribution of meeting announcements and documents (See ADDRESSES). 4. Schedule: The Draft Environmental Impact Statement is scheduled to be released for public review and comment in September 2006. The Final Report and Final EIS are scheduled to be completed in March 2007. Brenda S. Bowen, Army Federal Register Liaison Officer.
