SPL-2014-CHB-11 Proposal to Place Sand and Gravel at Downstream Operations Areas, Whittier Narrows Dam, Pico Rivera, CA.

Published July 25, 2014
Expiration date: 8/29/2014

The Corps is preparing an Environmental Assessment for a proposal to be undertaken on Operations areas at Whittier Narrows Flood Control Basin. 


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District, proposes to preposition approximately 600 tons of sand and 600 tons of gravel on Corps Operations-controlled lands located downstream of Whittier Narrows Dam which is managed for flood risk management.  Once placed, these materials would be used in the potential case of a short-term need for work at downstream Dam locations.  The project would take 6 weeks or less.  The materials would remain on site for interim risk reduction use until determined no longer needed.


The Corps is inviting the general public to submit comments on potential environmental impacts that could result from implementation of the proposal.  A 15-day public comment period on preparation of the EA for this proposal will extend from July 25-August 9, 2014, and the Corps will consider all submissions received on or postmarked by August 9.
