Project Description

The United States Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), with American Fork City as the project sponsor and Lehi City and Pleasant Grove City as project co-sponsors, is proposing to fund through the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act (Public Law [PL] 83-566) improvements within the American Fork Watershed in Utah County, Utah.


NEPA Analysis

NRCS, as the lead federal agency, is initiating National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) analysis in the form of a Supplemental Watershed Plan and Environmental Assessment (Plan-EA) to analyze impacts to the natural and human environment from this project. The Plan-EA will comply with the Council on Environmental Quality’s regulations at 40 CFR Parts 1500-1508, which require an evaluation of potential environmental impacts associated with federal projects and actions.


Current Status

The Final Plan-EA has been submitted to NRCS-Utah for review. It will then be sent to NRCS-National for final review and approval.
