17-053 Corps seeks public input for Jackson Hole Levee Project Supplemental EA

Published April 20, 2017
JACKSON, Wyo. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District (Corps), invites public scoping comments for the Jackson Hole, Wyoming Flood Protection Project (project) Supplemental Environmental Assessment (SEA). Written comments will be accepted until May 22, 2017.

The Corps is proposing to prepare a SEA to the “1990 Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Flood Protection Project Operations and Maintenance Decision Document and Environmental Impact Statement” because project operations have changed over time, and there are new circumstances and information relevant to changing procedures and environmental conditions.

The Corps is soliciting public opinion on relevant issues and environmental effects that should be considered in the SEA. Scoping comments will be used in: 1) identifying potential and key issues to address; 2) exploring alternatives for operation and maintenance (O&M) of the project, in addition to no action; and 3) identifying potential environmental effects associated with O&M activities.

A fact sheet and other documents are available for reference on the District’s website at http://www.nww.usace.army.mil/Missions/Environmental-Compliance.

Written comments will be accepted until May 22, 2017. Electronic comments may be filed directly online using the NEPA Online Comment Form on the webpage, or by emailing to NEPANWW@usace.army.mil, noting “JHFPP” in the subject line.

Comments may also be mailed to:
