Maple Creek Habitat Enhancement Project

Project summary

Trout Unlimited proposes the Maple Creek Habitat Enhancement Project. The proposed project includes habitat enhancement of approximately 3,500 feet of stream along Maple Creek, located within the Choice Wildlife Management Area, in Fillmore County. The purpose of the project is to restore ecological and hydrologic functions of the creek and adjacent floodplain with the project area. An environmental assessment worksheet (EAW) is required for the project.

Record of Decision on Environmental Assessment Worksheet

The DNR, as the Responsible Governmental Unit (RGU) for environmental review of the Maple Creek Habitat Enhancement Project, has issued a Record of Decision (ROD) regarding the Need for an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the project.

The DNR has concluded that an EIS is not required because the project does not have the potential for significant environmental effects. The justification for this determination is contained in the Record of Decision. The Record of Decision also contains the Department's responses to all substantive written comments received on the EAW during the 30-day public review and comment period. Public notice of the availability of EAW documents for public comment was in the January 30, 2024, EQB Monitor.

Issuing this Record of Decision concludes the state environmental review process for this project according to the Minnesota Environmental Quality Board rules, Minnesota Rules, part 4410.1000 to 4410.1700.
