Project Information

Gould Wash Flood Protection Map

The United States Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), with assistance from Washington County (project sponsor), is considering improvements within the Warner Draw Watershed to reduce flooding to Hurricane City from the Gould Wash drainage.

An evaluation of potential project alternatives and associated environmental impacts is required to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Council on Environmental Quality’s (CEQ’s) regulations and will be documented in the form of a Supplemental Watershed Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (Plan-EIS). The project is currently in the scoping phase and NRCS and Washington County are soliciting input and holding a scoping meeting.

At this time, NRCS is requesting comments on the project during an open comment period to identify issues and resource sensitivities. Written comments can be submitted during the open comment period starting January 21, 2020, and ending 30 days after the Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS is posted in the Federal Register (i.e., 30+ days after the start of the open comment period). The NRCS project website will be updated with the comment period closing date as soon as the date of the Federal Register posting is determined.

Additional information can be found at the NRCS Gould Wash Flood Protection project website accessed from:
