Good afternoon all,

The Notice of Availability (NOA) for the White River Minimum Flow Reallocation Study Draft EIS was published in the Federal Register today. The clock is now officially ticking on the 45-day Public Review Period. A copy of the DEIS is available on the District's Web Page under the White River Minimum Flow Study page. Also on this page are the Reallocation Report and the Chief's Report that have been there for a couple of years now http://www.swl.usace.army.mil/planning/wrminflow.html. CD's containing the DEIS have been sent to interested agencies for review. I have attached a copy of the News Release that gives specifics on public meetings, and where the public can view copies of the DEIS.

Regards
