In accordance with Section 204 of the 1950 Flood Control Act (Pub. L. 516, 81st Congress, 2nd Session), as recommended by the Chief of Engineers in House Document Number 585, 81st Congress, 2nd Session, the Coyote Dam (also known as the ``Lake Mendocino Project''), Ukiah, CA, is authorized to be raised 36 feet to a total storage capacity of 199,000 acre-feet (ac-ft) when the need for additional water supply arises. Since construction of Coyote Dam, increased development of Mendocino County and the accelerated rate of sedimentation in Lake Mendocino have resulted in the need for additional water supply. The additional storage capacity achieved by raising the dam would address future demands on water supply and also increase flood damage reduction functions. This is a notice of intent to prepare a joint environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR), and to consider all reasonable alternatives, evaluate potential impacts of the proposed action, and identify appropriate mitigation measures. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is the lead agency for this project under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and the Mendocino County Inland Water and Power Commission (IWPC) is the lead agency and local sponsor under the California environmental quality Act (CEQA).
