NPS SEEKS PUBLIC COMMENT ON PROPOSED WASTEWATER TREATMENT UPGRADES

LAS VEGAS - The National Park Service is seeking public comment on the proposed upgrade of wastewater treatment facilities within the Callville Bay developed area in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. The upgrades are necessary to increase treatment capacity and address elevated nitrate levels in the water discharged from existing wastewater lagoons. The Park Service will be preparing an environmental assessment to evaluate the potential impacts associated with the upgrades.

The assessment will analyze the construction of four acres of new wastewater lagoons as well as the alternative option of mechanized nitrate removal. Potential impacts to park resources will be analyzed for each alternative.

Comments and recommendations concerning the scope of the environmental assessment, the issues it should cover, the alternatives to consider, and other resource concerns will be accepted through Aug. 14, 2009. They may be submitted by U.S. Mail to Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Compliance Office, 601 Nevada Way, Boulder City, NV 89005 or via the internet at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/.
