ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: This notice advises the public that the Los Angeles District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE–SPL), as lead agency, is gathering information necessary to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) in connection with the update proposed for Alamo Dam’s Water Control Plan. This notice opens the public scoping phase and invites interested parties to identify potential issues, concerns, and reasonable alternatives that should be considered in an EIS. ADDRESSES: You may mail or hand deliver written comments to Alamo Dam WCP Update, Los Angeles District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, ATTN: CESPL–AMO Alamo, 915 Wilshire Blvd, Suite 930, Los Angeles, California 90017. Advance arrangements will need to be made to hand deliver comments.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1. Project Description. The proposed update would provide greater flexibility in operations to support maintenance activities, minimization of anoxic sediment build up at the outlet works, and fish and wildlife benefits downstream of the dam in support of the sustainable rivers MOU. The action would also potentially result in a reallocation of water storage space to prevent the probable maximum flood overtopping the Dam. The action would also address Endangered Species Act (ESA) compliance regarding newly listed species and critical habitat designated downstream of the Dam since the 2003 Water Control Plan was completed. 2. Alternatives. The EIS will address an array of alternatives based on the project’s authorized purpose and need. USACE–SPL must identify the ‘‘overall’’ project purpose and evaluate practicable alternatives. USACE–SPL has identified the following potential alternatives: A. No Action—Under this alternative, USACE–SPL would continue existing operations at Alamo Dam in accordance with the 2003 Water Control Plan. B. Maintenance Facilitation—Under this alternative, USACE–SPL would lower the target water surface elevation (WSE) to allow access to original equipment used for regular maintenance inspections. 15.4 feet of the existing unclaimed water conservation pool storage would be reallocated to the flood control pool. C. Unified Flow Release—Under this alternative, USACE–SPL would maintain the current target WSE but alter release schedules to create a more natural flow regime below the Dam. 15.4 feet of the existing unclaimed water conservation pool storage would be reallocated to the flood control pool. D. Unified Flow Release and increased Recreation—Under this alternative, USACE–SPL would raise the target water surface elevation to increase E:\FR\FM\10APN1.SGM 10APN1
