"It’s up to concerned citizens to take action and tell NID and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers what they are most concerned about regarding the proposed Centennial Dam. Submitting letters, or speaking out at the public scoping meetings, is the official way to be heard on the record and have standing.
Recently released was the “Notice of Intent” to prepare a Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Nevada Irrigation District's (NID) Proposed Centennial Dam Project. This process is required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
The public has until April 10th to comment on NID’s plans to construct Centennial – a new 275-foot tall dam and 110,000-acre foot reservoir on the Bear River between the existing Rollins and Combie Reservoirs.
The Centennial Dam proposal has many potentially significant environmental impacts listed in the Notice of Intent (NOI)."
