Abstract: Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, the Corps has prepared this Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Federal action proposed to remediate internal erosion and potential overtopping issues at Whittier Narrows Dam. The Whittier Narrows Flood Control Project is located in Los Angeles County, California, approximately 11 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, This FEIS identifies, evaluates, and documents the environmental effects of an array of remedial action alternatives referred to as Risk Management Plans (RMP). The acronym RMP is used throughout this document to be consistent with the Dam Safety Modification Study report. RMPs address study objectives to prevent loss of life, extensive environmental and economic damages downstream, functional loss of the project, and the loss of all project benefits. Implementing the proposed project is a large and complex modification that would involve altering the Whittier Narrows Dam, constructing new structures and facilities, and performing numerous associated support actions over an anticipated multi-year construction period. This FEIS provides agencies and the public the opportunity to review and comment on the preferred RMP and other RMPs so that decision makers can take agency and public views into consideration when approving a RMP for implementation. This FEIS has been prepared following public and agency review and comment of the Draft EIS. This FEIS has been prepared considering all comments received.
