This integrated Planning Report/Final Environmental Impact Statement (PR/FEIS) presents an analysis of the planning process and the environmental impacts of the proposed Price-San Rafael Rivers Unit (Unit) of the Colorado River Water Quality Improvement Program (CRWQIP) and the Colorado River Salinity Control Program (CRSC). The document has been jointly prepared by the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) and the Soil Conservation Service (SCS) to address the full range of potential environmental impacts, in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The CRWQIP/CRSC programs provide for projects upstream of Imperial Dam (near Yuma, Arizona, on the Arizona-California border) that are necessary to maintain or reduce salinity in the Colorado River. A final environmental statement on the CRWQIP was prepared by Reclamation and SCS (May 19, 1977). This PR/FEIS will be used to meet NEPA compliance requirements and to obtain construction authorization for off-farm features. Onfarm features are authorized for construction under Public Law 93-320, as amended by public Law 98-569.
