Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for Near-term Colorado River Operations
The Bureau of Reclamation has released the draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for Near-term Colorado River Operations.
The purpose of the SEIS is to supplement the 2007 Interim Guidelines to modify guidelines for operation of Glen Canyon Dam and Hoover Dam to address historic drought, historically low reservoirs, and low runoff conditions in the Colorado River Basin.
More information can be found here: https://www.usbr.gov/ColoradoRiverBasin/SEIS.html
Reclamation will hold four virtual public meetings to provide information on the draft SEIS, answer questions, and take verbal comment.
