Statewide Public Water Access EA


The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR), in cooperation with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, is seeking comments from the public on a draft generic Environmental Assessment (EA) for the construction of public water access sites (boat launching sites) statewide in Minnesota.

Approval of the EA will allow the DNR to continue to use Federal Sport Fish Restoration Act funds to construct and renovate public water access sites throughout Minnesota. A site specific worksheet would be developed for each new access site under the generic EA. A site specific worksheet is necessary to ensure that a separate, specific EA is not required.

Send Comments

Written and signed comments on the EA must be received by 4:30 PM, July 25, 2009.
