USA: Army Corps Holds Public Meeting on DSEIS for Clear Creek Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, will hold a public meeting today, at the Marie Spence Flickinger Fine Arts Building located at San Jacinto College South, 13735 Beamer Road, Houston, Texas to discuss the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for the Clear Creek General Reevaluation Study.

Background: The Clear Creek Flood Control Project was authorized by Congress in the Flood Control Act of 1968. The authorized project extended 31 miles from Clear Lake to the Fort Bend County line. In 1982 the Phase I General Design Memorandum, including the FEIS, was signed by the Southwest Division Engineer, thus authorizing the detailed design.

The congressional authorization for this project only allows the consideration of reducing flood damage caused by rainfall runoff along the main channel of Clear Creek and does not include coastal flooding caused by tropical storm systems (USACE, 1982). This DSEIS was prepared as required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to present an evaluation of potential impacts associated with the tentatively proposed project.

The DSEIS and associated documentation is now available for public review and comment.
