Project: City of West Richland Reservoir ROW

Project Status: Planning in Progress
Office Location: Spokane
Resource Area: Border
NEPA #: OR135-06-001  FONSI/Decision Record
Document Publish Date: 6/20/2007
Summary: The purpose of the Proposed Action is to address the City of West Richland's need to provide non-potable irrigation water to its growing community. The city is requesting that it be allowed a right-of-way from BLM to use public land as a reservoir area to store approximately 500 million gallons of irrigation water which will be pumped to the site from the Columbia Irrigation District (CID) canal. This will allow the city to conserve potable water sources, by lowering the peak demand, because residence can water land without depleting the potable water supply.
