Public Notice Announcing Scoping Meeting Klamath Irrigation District Infrastructure Modernization Project
The United States Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Oregon is considering improvements to irrigation infrastructure in Klamath Irrigation District. Klamath Irrigation District is the project sponsor and Farmers Conservation Alliance is assisting NRCS in this planning process. Improvements under consideration may be partially funded through the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act of 1954 (PL 83-566) and will address water conveyance and operation inefficiencies in District-operated infrastructure while supporting existing agricultural land use.
The proposed project is located in Klamath County, Oregon. The National Environmental Policy Act and the Council on Environmental Quality’s regulations require an evaluation of potential environmental impacts associated with federal projects and actions with input from the public.
You are invited to attend a public scoping meeting where your input is requested. At the meeting, the range of resource issues and conceptual alternatives addressing system improvements in Klamath Irrigation District will be presented. Participants will have an opportunity to submit their comments, ideas, and concerns.
