Lake Powell Pipeline Project Draft Environmental Impact Study

June 11, 2020
by John Weisheit

The Draft EIS/Draft RMPA analyzes the potential direct, indirect, and cumulative physical, biological, and socioeconomic environmental effects that may result from construction and operation of the two action alternatives: The Highway Alternative and the Southern Alternative, including three RMPA sub-alternatives for the Southern Alternative.

Both alternatives consist of a water delivery pipeline that begins at Lake Powell near Glen Canyon Dam in Page, Arizona, and ends at Sand Hollow Reservoir near St. George, Utah. The pipeline would deliver up to 86,249 acre-feet of water from Lake Powell to Washington County. Both alternatives also include a water exchange contract between Reclamation and UBWR.

The BLM Arizona Strip Field Office is considering amending a portion of the Arizona Strip Field Office (ASFO) Resource Management Plan (RMP) related to the Kanab Creek Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC). Pursuant to 43 CFR 1610.7–2(b), the BLM is required to publish a notice in the Federal Register of proposed ACECs, including changes to existing ACECs, and specify the resource use limitations.
