Abstract: The Corps is proposing to construct a new, full-service volunteer village at the Libby Dam Souse Gulch Recreation Area (Souse Gulch). The volunteer village will include up to nine total campsites with full utility hookups, RV parking, an existing dock facility, and an expansion to an existing on-site parking lot. Souse Gulch is located on Corps property just north and west of Libby Dam (Lincoln County, Montana) where there is currently a day-use area. The volunteer village will be constructed to the east of the existing road that accesses the picnic areas. This undertaking will create a designated campground for volunteers who currently provide visitor center staffing, janitorial and maintenance support work for Libby Dam. Tree removal and construction work on the volunteer village will be initiated in the summer of 2014 and will be slated for completion by winter 2015. Subsequent road paving and native plantings may occur in the volunteer village area in the years following construction. In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), this document evaluates the potential environmental impacts of the proposed construction alternatives. The Corps will use best management practices to minimize potential adverse effects to aquatic, terrestrial, and historic and cultural resources. Impacts to air quality, noise, and water quality will generally be highly localized and short in duration. There are no water or wetland impacts associated with this project.
