‚ÄčMalheur Resource Area Jonesboro Diversion Dam Replacement Project
(DOE/EA-1994)
Malheur County, Oregon

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Following the completion of the environmental compliance process, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) granted a Right-of-Way permit to the Burns Paiute Tribe to replace and install an irrigation diversion in the Malheur River approximately 11 miles east of the town of Juntura in Malheur County, Oregon.

CURRENT STATUS:
BLM, in cooperation with the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), prepared an environmental assessment (EA) to help determine the potential impacts the project would have on the natural and human environment. The BLM released the draft EA for public review and comment in December 2014, and received comments from two entities. BLM prepared a final EA that provides responses to comments received and includes revision to the analysis based on those comments. Based on the EA analysis and mitigation measures to help lessen impacts, BPA has found that the project will not cause any significant impacts, and has issued a finding of no significant impact.
