ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is seeking public comments on a draft Environmental Assessment, or EA, for a proposed spillway repair project at Lac qui Parle dam in Montevideo, Minnesota.
The proposed repair involves the removal of the existing spillway surface and replacement with a reinforced concrete slab spillway along the entire spillway length. The spillway was overtopped for a prolonged period in 2019 which resulted in significant damage to portions of the spillway. If approved, construction of the proposed alternative would begin in 2024 and conclude in 2025.
A final determination on the draft EA will be made following a 30-day public review period. A copy of the EA can be viewed and downloaded from the St. Paul District website at: http://www.mvp.usace.army.mil/Home/PublicNotices.aspx.
Comments on the draft EA should be submitted no later than Oct. 28. Questions and comments concerning the project should be directed to Lane.A.Richter@usace.army.mil. Please address all correspondence on this project to the St. Paul District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Attention: Regional Planning and Environment Division North, 332 Minnesota Street, Suite E1500, St. Paul, Minnesota 55101-1678.
The Corps of Engineers is conducting a review of the environmental effects in accordance with the National Environment Policy Act.
