Draft EA of City of Boardman's Water Facility Expansion Proposal (1.2MB pdf)

Interested parties are hereby notified that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District (USACE) has drafted an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the construction of the Boardman City Water Facility Expansion. The draft EA is prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Council on Environmental Quality’s NEPA regulations (40 CFR §§ 1500–1508), and the Corps’ NEPA regulations (33 CFR Part 230). 

The Corps has developed this draft Environmental Assessment to evaluate the environmental impacts of this proposed construction at the city of Boardman’s existing water facility. The project requires review under applicable laws and regulations, including the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

Assessment of the Need for an Environmental Impact Statement: USACE has determined that the Proposed Action is not likely to result in significant impacts on the human environment, and therefore an environmental impact statement (EIS) will not be prepared.
