NPS RELEASES ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT FOR PROPOSED WATER TREATMENT FACILITIES, PUBLIC COMMENT THROUGH JULY 10

LAS VEGAS - The National Park Service has released the environmental assessment for the proposed construction of two new water treatment facilities at Cottonwood Cove, Nev. and Temple Bar, Ariz. developed areas in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The document analyzes the impacts associated with construction as well the impacts of the no-action alternative.

The assessment evaluates the impacts of construction of new buildings at each location, including laboratory and office space, vehicle parking, utility hookups and access roads. These new facilities are needed to treat groundwater for arsenic content in order to comply with new stricter Environmental Protection Agency regulations.

The full document is available for review at http://www.nps.gov/lame/parkmgmt/docs.htm and http://parkplanning.nps.gov. A copy of the document can also be requested by calling (702) 293-8978.
