The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) State Conservationist, Scott Edwards, signed the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for the East Locust Creek Reservoir project. This signals full compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act as they begin work on the construction of the East Locust Creek Reservoir.
Brad Scott, General Manager of the North Central Missouri Regional Water Commission says an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is required for all federal projects.
Scott says they have made good progress on the project.
He says the Record of Decision allows them to push forwards as they look to complete the dam in the next five years.
