The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has extended the public comment period for the Revised Draft Integrated Project Implementation Report (PIR) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Lake Okeechobee Watershed Restoration Project (LOWRP) to September 3, 2019.

The U.S. Army Corps released a Revised Draft Integrated Project Implementation Report (PIR) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Lake Okeechobee Watershed Restoration Project (LOWRP) for public/agency review on July 5. It has come to our attention that the Engineering Appendix did not include the following annexes:  Annex A-1 Hydraulic Design, Annex A-2 Hydraulic Modeling, Annex A-3 Model Documentation Reports, Annex B-1 Geotechnical Data, Annex C-1 Plates, Annex G-1 Geotechnical Investigations. The correct version of the Engineering Appendix has been uploaded to the project website www.saj.usace.army.mil/LOWRP/. To allow more time to review the entire Engineering Appendix, we have extended the public review period to end on September 3, 2019.

You may submit your comments via email OkeechobeeWatershedRestoration@usace.army.mil by September 3, 2019.
