SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, we have prepared a final environmental impact statement (FEIS) on a proposal under which Sanpete Water Conservancy District (SWCD) would construct, operate, and maintain the Narrows Project—a proposed non-Federal water development and conveyance project funded with a variety of public and private financing and located in part on Federal lands. The FEIS Analyzes Four Alternatives The FEIS describes and analyzes the potential effects of four alternatives. The No Action Alternative represents the conditions of the affected area in Sanpete and Carbon counties if the project is not built. The three action alternatives represent three different versions of the Narrows Project, each differing in the size of the dam and reservoir. Three reservoir sizes were analyzed to enable the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to determine the Least Environmentally Damaging Practicable Alternative. Under all three action alternatives, a supplemental water supply would be developed for presently irrigated lands and for municipal and industrial water users in north Sanpete County. The alternatives would require diversion of up to 5,400 acre-feet of water annually from Gooseberry Creek drainage in the Colorado River Basin to northern Sanpete County in the Sevier River drainage basin. The water right used under the action alternatives represents about 6.6 percent of the average annual yield of the Price River above the City of Price. Under all action alternatives, the SWCD’s conversion of water from irrigation to municipal and industrial use would occur in stages. What the Preferred Alternative Does The preferred alternative is to allow SWCD to build, operate, and maintain the largest dam with a reservoir capacity of 17,000 acre-feet of water stored behind a dam with a height of 120 feet, a crest length of 550 feet, and a reservoir surface area of 604 acres. The reservoir would produce an average yield of 5,136 acre-feet per year. In addition, it would provide an average annual supply of 4,281 acre-feet of water for 15,420 acres of farmland and 855 acre-feet of water for municipal and industrial use. PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Irrigation is expected to yield a third crop of alfalfa in an area where usually only two crops are harvested.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the National Environmental 
Policy Act of 1969, as amended, we have prepared a final environmental 
impact statement (FEIS) on a proposal under which Sanpete Water 
Conservancy District (SWCD) would construct, operate, and maintain the 
Narrows Project--a proposed non-Federal water development and 
conveyance project funded with a variety of public and private 
financing and located in part on Federal lands.

The FEIS Analyzes Four Alternatives

    The FEIS describes and analyzes the potential effects of four 
alternatives. The No Action Alternative represents the conditions of 
the affected area in Sanpete and Carbon counties if the project is not 
built. The three action alternatives represent three different versions 
of the Narrows Project, each differing in the size of the dam and 
reservoir. Three reservoir sizes were analyzed to enable the U.S. Army 
Corps of Engineers to determine the Least Environmentally Damaging 
Practicable Alternative.
    Under all three action alternatives, a supplemental water supply 
would be developed for presently irrigated lands and for municipal and 
industrial water users in north Sanpete County. The alternatives would 
require diversion of up to 5,400 acre-feet of water annually from 
Gooseberry Creek drainage in the Colorado River Basin to northern 
Sanpete County in the Sevier River drainage basin. The water right used 
under the action alternatives represents about 6.6 percent of the 
average annual yield of the Price River above the City of Price. Under 
all action alternatives, the SWCD's conversion of water from irrigation 
to municipal and industrial use would occur in stages.

What the Preferred Alternative Does

    The preferred alternative is to allow SWCD to build, operate, and 
maintain the largest dam with a reservoir capacity of 17,000 acre-feet 
of water stored behind a dam with a height of 120 feet, a crest length 
of 550 feet, and a reservoir surface area of 604 acres. The reservoir 
would produce an average yield of 5,136 acre-feet per year. In 
addition, it would provide an average annual supply of 4,281 acre-feet 
of water for 15,420 acres of farmland and 855 acre-feet of water for 
municipal and industrial use. Irrigation is expected to yield a third 
crop of alfalfa in an area where usually only two crops are harvested.
