The public notice is available for public comments. The comment period expires Sunday, July 28.

The notice and supporting documents are posted to the website http://www.mvp.usace.army.mil/Missions/CivilWorks/Environment/Environmen...

Approximately 440 feet of the right descending bank immediately downstream of the Eau Galle Dam spillway has eroded as a result of high flows and repairs to the bank are needed to return the area to a pre-flood condition. If the bank is not repaired, it will continue to erode, which will affect the ability to maintain the project as designed.
