Today, the US Army Corps of Engineers signed a record of decision for the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District’s request to discharge fill material into 33.6 acres of waters of the United States. The fill discharge will facilitate construction activities associated with their Northern Integrated Supply Project (NISP).
The Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District seeks to provide 40,000 acre-feet each year from a new municipal water supply. Under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, a permit is required for the discharge of dredged or fill material in waters of the United States. The Corps regulatory program is tasked with evaluating such proposed discharges and did so through an extensive National Environmental Policy Act process resulting in the NISP Final Environmental Impact Statement publicly released July 2018.
Public involvement was an essential element to help the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers thoroughly analyze the range of alternatives and inform the record of decision.
