Upper Weber Basin Watershed Plan (Sponsor = Weber Basin WCD)

Project Description

The United States Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), with the Weber Basin Water Conservancy District (WBWCD) as the project sponsor, is proposing to partially fund through the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act (Public Law [PL] 83-566) improvements within and around the Headwaters Weber River-Upper Weber River Watershed in Summit County, Utah. Part of the proposed project is located on National Forest System lands within the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest; the U.S. Forest Service will decide whether to authorize the project as proposed.

NEPA Analysis

NRCS, as the lead federal agency, is initiating National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) analysis in the form of a new Watershed Plan and Environmental Assessment (Plan-EA) to analyze impacts to the natural and human environment from this project. The U.S. Forest Service will be a cooperating agency. The Plan-EA will comply with the Council on Environmental Quality's regulations at 40 CFR Parts 1500-1508, which require an evaluation of potential environmental impacts associated with federal projects and actions. The Plan-EA must also be in conformance with the 2003 Wasatch-Cache Forest Plan.

The project is currently in the Scoping Phase and the public, organizations, and agencies are invited to provide comments on the proposed project.
