Willamette Valley EIS Virtual Room
Army engineers and planners continue developing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Willamette Valley System (WVS) that will address the continued operations and maintenance of the System in accordance with authorized project purposes; while meeting Endangered Species Act obligations to avoid jeopardizing the continued existence of listed species. As part of this planning process, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is offering the public the chance to view the progress, through virtual reality. Corps staff encourages the public to view a virtual room, which contains videos, digital boards, slides and maps that should help attendees understand the purpose of the EIS and the National Environmental Policy Act process. Additionally, the materials lay out the purpose of the EIS as well as the alternatives identified.
