Funding for salinity control projects is available through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program which is covered by a programmatic EA. The Manila-Washam plan and EA were developed to more specifically evaluate the effects associated with this type of water quality activity.

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 Manila-Washam Salinity Control Project, Daggett County, Utah; and Sweetwater County, Wyoming.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The environmental assessment of this federally-assisted action documents that the project will not cause significant local, regional, State, or national impacts on the human environment. 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 Green River, 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 underground pipeline delivery 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.
