Document Description
Phase II of the previously approved Murrieta Creek Flood Control, Environmental Restoration and Recreation Project involves the construction, operation, and maintenance of flood control, environmental restoration, and recreation improvements. The District Board previously approved a Project Cooperation Agreement (PCA) with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The PCA set forth the terms and conditions by which the USACE would design and construct the project and fund up to 65% of the project's total cost. The PCA formalized the District's commitment to provide the local cost share, and outlined its responsibilities to provide right of way and to operate and maintain the project after construction. Phase II is anticipated to be constructed using accelerated local funds. This change in the funding arrangement timing requires an amendment to the previously approved PCA. Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the USACE prepared and circulated for public review a draft Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) in September 2000 and as required by CEQA and as the CEQA lead agency, the District's Board of Supervisors certified the EIS/EIR and adopted Resolution No. F2003-01 (Agenda No. 11.5 January 28, 2003), which authorized the District to proceed with the Project. Alternative 6 was originally chosen as the preferred design for the Project and Phase I was completed by the USACE in 2004. In order to address minor design refinements to the original Phase II design, a Supplement Environmental Assessment/Environmental Impact Report (SEA/EIR) was completed and pursuant to NEPA and CEQA, the USACE, acting as the Federal lead agency and the District as CEQA lead agency, approved the July 2014 SEA/EIR to the 2000 EIS/EIR (SCH No. 2000071051). The SEA/EIR concluded that environmental impacts associated with the modified Phase II design are not substantially different with respect to the original Phase II design as documented in the original EIS/EIR.
