regulations (40 CFR parts 1500-1508) the Corps of Engineers, 
Albuquerque District, has prepared a final Supplemental Environmental 
Impact Statement (SEIS) for the San Acacia to Bosque del Apache 
Project, Socorro County, New Mexico.

DATES: The 30-day review period begins on January 24, 2014 and ends on

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    1. Background Information: Previously, an environmental impact 
statement (1977) and a supplement (1992) were published regarding this 
project. The current SEIS (II) evaluates the effects of revised levee 
design and additional alternatives. The final SEIS is integrated with a 
final General Reevaluation Report, and the integrated document is 
entitled: General Reevaluation Report and Supplemental Environmental 
Impact Statement II: Rio Grande Floodway, San Acacia to Bosque del 
Apache Unit, Socorro County, New Mexico (hereafter referred to as the 
final GRR/SEIS-II).
    Alternatives developed and evaluated during the current and 
previous studies consist of levee reconstruction (at various heights); 
flood and sediment control dams; local levees; intermittent levee 
replacement; watershed land treatment; floodproofing of buildings; 
levee-alignment setbacks; and no action. Principal issues analyzed in 
the development of the GRR/SEIS-II included the effect of alternatives 
on flood risk, developed lands and structures, water quality, 
ecological resources, endangered species, cultural resources, and 
socio-economics.
    The recommended plan is to replace the existing embankment between 
the Low Flow Conveyance Channel and the Rio Grande with a structurally 
competent levee capable of containing high-volume, long-duration flows. 
This engineered levee would substantially reduce the risk of damage 
from floods emanating from the Rio Grande. The proposed levee and 
attendant structures would extend from San Acacia downstream for 
approximately 43 miles, nearly to San Marcial. The local cost-sharing 
sponsors of the proposed project are the Middle Rio Grande Conservancy 
District and the New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission.
    2. Draft SEIS Review: The draft GRR-SEIS-II comment period began on 
April 27, 2012 with the publication of the Notice of Availability in
