SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Millerton Lake Final EIS/EIR evaluates the existing resource management of Millerton Lake. The project purpose consists of: (1) Identifying the current and most appropriate future uses of land and water resources within the Plan Area; (2) identifying the long-term resource programs and implementation guidelines to manage and develop recreation, natural, and cultural resources; and (3) developing strategies and approaches to protect and preserve the natural, recreational, aesthetic, and cultural resources. Millerton Lake is an existing reservoir formed by Friant Dam, and located in Fresno and Madera Counties, CA. The Dam, which regulates the normal flow of the San Joaquin River and stores floodwaters for irrigation diversion into the Friant-Kern and Madera Canals, was completed in 1947. Millerton Lake has a storage capacity of 520,500 acre-feet and a surface area of 4,900 acres. Through agreements with Reclamation and the California Department of Fish and Game, the CDPR manages the entire Plan Area. The most recent General Plan for the Plan Area was completed by CDPR in 1983, and projected recreation trends and deficiencies through 1990. Since the adoption of this plan, several changes to the physical and regulatory environment have resulted in the need for an updated plan. The new joint RMP/GP will have a planning horizon through the year 2035. The new plan will: (1) Enhance natural resources and recreational opportunities without interrupting VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:23 Apr 22, 2010 Jkt 220001 reservoir operations; (2) provide recreational opportunities to meet the demands of a growing population with diverse interests; (3) ensure diversity of recreational opportunities and quality of the recreational experience; (4) protect natural, cultural, and recreational sources while providing resource education opportunities and stewardship; and (5) provide updated management for establishing a new management agreement with the State of California. The Final EIS/EIR contains a programlevel analysis of the potential impacts associated with adoption of the RMP/ GP. The Final EIS/EIR outlines the formulation and evaluation of alternatives designed to address issues through a representation of the varied interests in the Plan Area and identifies Alternative 2 (Enhancement) as the preferred Alternative. The RMP/GP is intended to be predominately selfmitigating through implementation of management actions and strategies, but also includes mitigation measures to reduce potential adverse effects. The Final EIS/EIR has been developed within the authorities provided by Congress through the Reclamation Recreation Management Act of 1992 (Pub. L. 102–575, Title 28, 16 U.S.C. 460l–31) and other applicable agency and the U.S. Department of the Interior policies.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Millerton Lake Final EIS/EIR evaluates 
the existing resource management of Millerton Lake. The project purpose 
consists of: (1) Identifying the current and most appropriate future 
uses of land and water resources within the Plan Area; (2) identifying 
the long-term resource programs and implementation guidelines to manage 
and develop recreation, natural, and cultural resources; and (3) 
developing strategies and approaches to protect and preserve the 
natural, recreational, aesthetic, and cultural resources.
    Millerton Lake is an existing reservoir formed by Friant Dam, and 
located in Fresno and Madera Counties, CA. The Dam, which regulates the 
normal flow of the San Joaquin River and stores floodwaters for 
irrigation diversion into the Friant-Kern and Madera Canals, was

acre-feet and a surface area of 4,900 acres. Through agreements with 
Reclamation and the California Department of Fish and Game, the CDPR

1990. Since the adoption of this plan, several changes to the physical 
and regulatory environment have resulted in the need for an updated 
plan. The new joint RMP/GP will have a planning horizon through the 
year 2035.
    The new plan will: (1) Enhance natural resources and recreational 
opportunities without interrupting reservoir operations; (2) provide 
recreational opportunities to meet the demands of a growing population 
with diverse interests; (3) ensure diversity of recreational 
opportunities and quality of the recreational experience; (4) protect

education opportunities and stewardship; and (5) provide updated 
management for establishing a new management agreement with the State 
of California.
