Duchesne County Water Conservancy District (DCWCD) Watershed Plan

Project Description

The United States Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), with the Duchesne County Water Conservancy District (DCWCD) as the project sponsor, is proposing to partially fund through the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act (Public Law [PL] 83-566) improvements to address water use, agricultural operations, and flood damage reduction in Duchesne County, Utah.

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 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, with input from the public.

Current Status

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