Final EIS for Moffat Colection System to be released in Febuary 2014

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers anticipates that the projected Final Environmental Impact Statement for Denver Water's Moffat Collection System Project will be released in February 2014.-

At that time, the public will have an opportunity to review and comment on the Final EIS, which will in turn be considered prior to final decision-making by the Corps.--

The Final EIS and public comments will serve as a basis for the Corps' decision about whether to issue or deny a Section 404 Permit for the enlargement of Gross Reservoir, located in Boulder County. As the lead regulatory agency for the Moffat Project EIS, the Corps is charged with the responsibility of impartially reviewing Denver Water's proposal to ensure compliance with environmental and other federal laws.---

"We are confident that our latest schedule gives us a path forward toward an expeditious conclusion to the federal permit evaluation process," said Omaha District Commander Col. Joel R. Cross. "Everyone involved with the project is committed to working together to fulfill the requirements of a Final EIS, which will bring us closer to making a final decision on Denver Water's project."-
