The United States Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), with assistance of the Weber-Box Elder Conservation District (WBECD) and North Ogden City as the project sponsors, is proposing improvements within the North Ogden Watershed. Proposed improvements include a detention basin, an irrigation reservoir, storm drain improvements, an upgraded pump station, and community recreation facilities. Irrigation water regulated through the system would serve portions of North Ogden City, Pleasant View City, and Harrisville City. The facility’s recreational components would provide the surrounding area with an open waterfront complete with restrooms, shelters, walking paths, beach areas, and parking. The purpose of the proposed watershed measures would be to:
1). Prevent flood damages; and,
2). Improve the conservation, utilization and dispersal of water.
An evaluation of potential alternatives and associated environmental impacts is required and will be documented in the form of an Environmental Assessment (Plan-EA). NRCS and North Ogden City will hold a public meeting to provide information about the proposed project and to collect comments.
At this time, NRCS is requesting comments on the project to identify issues and resource sensitivities. Written comments can be submitted during the open comment period starting June 1, 2018 and ending on June 30, 2018. Comments must be received by June 30, 2018.
Public Meeting-The public is invited to attend, discuss, and submit a comment during the public open house, which will be held on June 12, 2018 – Tuesday 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
