Download as PDF 5694 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 21 / Friday, January 31, 2020 / Notices The Supplemental EIS considered the Proposed Action, a No-Action Alternative, and six action alternatives. Alternative 1, Proposed Action, would expand the quarry as described in the Mining Plan of Operations, replace the existing waterline, and install a new waterline between the quarry and the new well. Alternative 2, No Action Alternative, would continue operations as they currently are permitted without expanding the quarry or replacing the existing waterline. Alternative 3, Partial Imperial Irrigation District (IID) Water Supply, would provide for a new waterline between the processing plant and the IID Westside Main Canal to partially replace processing water from a groundwater source with a surface water source. Alternative 4, Full IID Water Supply, would fully replace the processing water with surface water. Alternatives 5 through 8 are variations on the mining plan proposed in the Mining Plan of Operations. The BLM identified Alternative 3, Partial IID Water Supply, as the Agency-Preferred Alternative in the Final Supplemental EIS. With this ROD, the BLM adopts the Agency Preferred Alternative.
