Lower San Pitch River Watershed (Sponsor: Sanpete Water Conservancy District

Project Description

The United States Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), with the Sanpete Water Conservancy District (SWCD) as the project sponsor, is proposing to partially fund through the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act (Public Law [PL] 83-566) improvements within the Lower San Pitch River Watershed in Sanpete 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 U.S. Forest Service and BLM may be cooperating agencies. 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.
