Reasons for Exemption
These project activities are necessary to prevent or mitigate an emergency situation wherein the waters of the Colorado River may be impacted with a hazardous constituent, chromium, which is in contaminated groundwater in close proximity to the river. Immediate action is necessary to contain and reverse the flow of groundwater away from the Colorado River. Commencement of the development of additional extraction, treatment, and treated water disposal capacity is urgent to assure that increased pluming rates will be available to respond to impending fluctuations of the Colorado River level.
