ACTION: Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the Grand Ditch Breach Restoration, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. SUMMARY: Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, 42 U.S.C. 4332(2)(C), the National Park Service is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement for the Grand Ditch Breach Restoration, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. This effort will result in ecological restoration of the area affected by the 2003 Grand Ditch Breach. Alternatives to be considered will likely include a combination of the following: Allowing natural (passive) restoration to occur where appropriate; stabilizing steep, unstable slopes with an engineered solution; removing deposited sediment and redistributing it through the impacted area or elsewhere; removing dead timber from the impacted area and/or using it in the restoration process; regrading and recontouring areas to restore appropriate morphology and function; native plant restoration with appropriate, locally gathered plant materials; may require the use of motorized equipment such as chainsaws, heavy lift helicopters, and earthmoving equipment; may require temporary fencing to protect native plant restoration areas. Major issues to be considered in this restoration planning process include short-and-long-term potential impacts to: Wilderness character; geological resources; geological hazards; soundscapes; surface and groundwater hydrology; stream channel, floodplain and wetland morphology and function; water quality; riparian and wetland communities; species of special concern (plants and animals); wildlife habitat; aquatic habitat; visitor experience; longterm resource productivity; archeological and historical sites. A scoping brochure has been prepared that details the issues identified to date.
