Drainage Improvements at Bullfrog
Page, AZ – The National Park Service (NPS) invites the public to provide comments related to the proposed improvement of water drainage in the Bullfrog developed area of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.
Storm water run-off currently deposits sand and debris as it moves through the campground and other areas. This causes damage to infrastructure, increased maintenance, and visitor and employee safety concerns.
Improvements may include redirecting existing drainage systems or modifying the existing drainage system to allow surface flows to move through the developed are in a way that does not put people or park resources at risk.
The NPS is preparing an environmental assessment (EA) in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) to evaluate different techniques for improving surface water flow in the Bullfrog developed area and provide opportunities for public review and comment. The EA will evaluate potential impacts to area soils, hydrology, wildlife, vegetation, visitor use, cultural resources, and park operations.
The NPS is seeking public scoping comments between August 28, 2013 and September 27, 2013. Public comments will be used to help inform the development of the EA. The NPS anticipates the EA will be released for public review and comment this winter.
All comments related to the proposal are welcome. During the public scoping period the following types of comments are particularly helpful:
· Specific information about the project area that should be included in the analysis
· Information about how you use this area of the park and how the project might affect that use
· Other projects that might affect or be affected by the project
· Other ideas or alternative ways of meeting the project objectives
We invite you to submit your written comments by September 27, 2013 in one of the following ways:
By mail: Superintendent
By fax: 928-608-6204
In person: Monday – Friday 7:30-4:00
