The Bureau of Reclamation announced that it has released a draft environmental assessment on the Clipper Ditch Pipeline Project, part of the Crawford Project in Delta County. The project involves replacing approximately 3.5 miles of open irrigation ditch with buried water pipeline.
The purpose of the project is to improve the efficiency of water delivery to ditch users and reduce salinity loading in the Colorado River Basin.
The draft environmental assessment is available online at http://www.usbr.gov/uc/envdocs/index.html, or a copy can be received by contacting Reclamation.
Reclamation will consider all comments received prior to preparing a final environmental assessment. Comments can be submitted to the e-mail address above or to: Ed Warner, Area Manager, Bureau of Reclamation, 445 West Gunnison Ave, Suite 221, Grand Junction, CO 81506. Comments are due by Monday, Feb. 17.blog comments powered by Disqus
