Abstract:

The purpose of this Environmental Assessment is to provide the basis for the evaluation of the environmental impact on the project area due to the routine operation and maintenance of this flood control reservoir. East Brimfield Lake has been operated whenever necessary since it was constructed to prevent or reduce downstream flooding. Maintenance and management of the project, including the recreation facilities, during non-flood periods is also of primary importance. Enhancement of the fish and wildlife resources as well as protection of the environment within and around the reservoir area has been given careful consideration. Author
