Abstract: This report on the Chatfield Reservoir Storage Reallocation integrates the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process with the Feasibility Study into a single document. Consistent with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ (USACE; the Corps) six-step planning process, NEPA also requires the evaluation and comparison of alternatives. It compares the impacts of the alternatives to the ecological, cultural, and aesthetic resources identified and investigated. The NEPA process documents compliance with applicable environmental statutes, such as the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act, and the National Historic Preservation Act, among others. The integration of the Feasibility Study and the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is intended to reduce process overlap and duplication. The integrated process helps assure that well-defined study conditions and well-researched, thorough assessments of the environmental, social, and economic resources affected by the proposed activity are incorporated into planning decisions.
