WINCHESTER, Idaho – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Walla Walla District invites public comments on their Draft Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the City of Winchester, Idaho, Water System Improvements Project. Comments are due no later than October 2. The Project is being done under Section 595 of the Water Resources Development Act of 1999 for which the Corps is authorized to participate in environmental infrastructure projects. The City proposes to improve its current drinking water system in order to meet peak summer system demands without having to ration water, to ensure adequate system reliability and, to provide for future residential and commercial growth. The Corps is not assisting the City with the entire proposed project, but instead is limiting its assistance to a new well house and transmission piping, which are separable elements of the larger project and have independent utility.
