Abstract: The Tulsa District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) received an application for a Department of the Army Permit under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA) from the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) to construct Lower Bois d’Arc Creek Reservoir (LBCR) and related facilities in Fannin County, Texas. The drainage area of the proposed reservoir would be approximately 327 square miles, of which 29.6 square miles are upstream of Lake Bonham. At its full conservation elevation of 534 feet, the reservoir is expected to cover 16,641 acres, store 367,609 acre-feet (AF) of water and be approximately 70 feet deep at its deepest point. A dam approximately 10,400 feet (about two miles) long and up to 90 feet high would be constructed, and much of the reservoir footprint would be cleared of trees and built structures. The total “footprint” of the proposed project site, including the dam, would be 17,068 acres, and the reservoir would have a surface area of 16,641 acres at normal pool and an estimated yield of 175,000 AFY. In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the USACE determined that issuance of such a permit may have a significant impact on the quality of the human environment and therefore prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). The DEIS examined the Proposed Action and the No Action Alternative in detail. The DEIS was issued in February 2015. The DEIS public and agency comment period extended for 60 days and closed on April 21, 2015. During the comment period, the USACE received nearly 600 comments on the DEIS. The comments ranged from questions regarding the technical analysis to questions regarding the NEPA process including development of the proposed action, purpose and need, and alternatives.
