USACE Releases Draft FONSI for Clover Island Restoration Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Walla Walla District invites public comments on a draft Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Feasibility Study/Environmental Assessment (FS/EA) for the Clover Island Ecosystem Restoration Project.

USACE will receive comments no later than Thursday, July 6, 2017.

The Corps proposes to partner with the Port of Kennewick to improve and restore riparian and shallow water habitat along the perimeter of Clover Island on the Columbia River in the city of Kennewick, Wash.

Clover Island was previously impacted by construction of McNary Lock and Dam and dam-associated federal levees on the Columbia River in the Tri-Cities (Kennewick, Pasco, Richland), Washington, area.

Ecosystem restoration would benefit four Endangered Species Act-listed fish—three salmonids plus bull trout—and their designated critical habitat. Restoration alternatives are focused along the island’s outer edge as it faces the Columbia River.

The draft FONSI and FS/EA is available through the Corps’ Environmental Compliance website.
