USACE Seeks Public Input for Mill Creek Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District, has invited public scoping comments for the Mill Creek Project Operation and Maintenance (O&M) Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS).

The Corps is proposing to prepare the SEIS to the 1975 Mill Creek Project Final Environmental Impact Statement.

Public scoping for this effort will take place from May 12 through June 12, 2017.

The purpose of the proposed action is to operate and maintain the Mill Creek Project for its authorized project purposes (flood risk management and recreation), while also considering operational and structural changes.

A SEIS is needed because Project operations have changed over time and there are new circumstances and information relevant to decisions on how the Mill Creek Project is operated, USACE said.

Scoping comments will be used in:

  • identifying issues to address;
  • exploring alternatives;
  • identifying potential environmental effects of possible changes to O&M activities.

An open-house-style public scoping meeting will be held at the Walla Walla Regional Airport Community Meeting Room on May 24, 2017 from 4-7 p.m.
