Here’s the release from the Bureau of Reclamation (Terry Stroh/Justyn Hock):
Reclamation announced today that it released the final EA and Finding of No Significant Impact on the C Ditch/Needle Rock Pipeline Project in Delta County, Colo. The project involves replacing a total of approximately 14,669 lineal feet of open irrigation ditch with buried pipe. The project will improve the efficiency of water delivery to ditch users and reduce salinity loading in the Colorado River Region. Funding for the project is through a cooperative agreement between Reclamation and C-Ditch Company.
The final EA and FONSI are available on our web site or a copy can be received by contacting Terry Stroh with Reclamation in Grand Junction at (970) 248-0608 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Construction is anticipated to be completed by spring 2014.
