Notice of Availability
The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has prepared a plan and environmental assessment (EA) consistent with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended. Funding for salinity control projects is available through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program which is covered by a programmatic EA. The Manila- Washam plan and EA were developed to more specifically evaluate the effects associated with this type of water quality activity. Upon review of the information in the Manila-Washam EA, the Utah NRCS State Conservationist made a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and the determination was made that no environmental impact statement is required to support the Manila-Washam Plan. Pursuant to section 102(2)(c) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969; the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR part 1500); and the Natural Resources Conservation Service Regulations (7 CFR part 650); the Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, gives notice that an environmental impact statement is not being prepared for the Manila-Washam Salinity Control Project, Daggett County, Utah; and Sweetwater County, Wyoming. Written comments regarding this action may be submitted to: Sylvia Gillen, State Conservationist, USDA/NRCS, Wallace F. Bennett Federal Building, 125 South State Street, Room 4402, Salt Lake City, UT 84138-1100. Comments must be received no later than 30 days after this notice is published.
