The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Albuquerque District, (Corps) and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality are evaluating a permit application to construct the Paseo Del Norte Drainage Improvements project, which would result in proposed impacts to approximately 2,722-linear feet (1.34-acres) of ephemeral washes, which are waters of the United States in Flow Path 38, El Paso, Texas. This notice is to inform interested parties of the proposed activity and to solicit comments. A previous Public Notice was issued for this project on January 14, 2011. That Public Notice described a project with proposed impacts to approximately 4,615-linear feet (2.23-acres) of ephemeral washes, which are waters of the United States. In accordance with § 325.2 (a)(2), Processing of applications, the District is issuing a revised Public Notice to inform the public that the Applicant, after evaluating an additional alternative, has significantly reduced proposed impacts to waters of the United Sates. This has resulted in a reduced permit area and a change in the Applicant structure. Additionally, a detailed mitigation plan has been developed by the Applicant.
