NOTICE OF SEPA FINAL MITIGATED DETERMINATION OF NON-SIGNIFICANCE (MDNS) METHOW VALLEY IRRIGATION DISTRICT FLOW IMPROVEMENT PROJECT

Notice is given that the SEPA Responsible Official for Okanogan County and the Columbia River Office of the Department of Ecology, acting as Co-Leads for environmental review of the above named project, have reviewed the environmental checklist and proposed mitigations and has issued a final mitigated determination of non-significance in accordance with WAC 197-11-350.

Project Location

The project site is located in the Methow River Valley of Okanogan County, Washington. The MVID service area includes about 1,300 acres of land extending from the Town of Twisp to the unincorporated community of Carlton. Ground water wells will be constructed along the Twisp River in the Town of Twisp, the Methow River in the Town of Twisp, and the Methow River in the vicinity of Alder Creek.

Project Description

The Methow Valley Irrigation District Flow Improvement Project (MVID Project) is intended to improve the MVID delivery system near Twisp, Washington, with resulting benefits to in-stream flows and fish habitat in the Twisp River, Methow River, and Alder Creek; to provide more reliable and efficient service for MVID members; and to assist in meeting the public water supply needs of the Town of Twisp. A comprehensive description of the MVID Project is provided in Alternative 5 of the Methow Valley Irrigation District Alternatives Evaluation Report, Anchor QEA (August 2013).The MVID Project involves converting portions of largely unlined, earthen irrigation canals to buried, pressurized piped conveyance systems as well as converting a number of parcels currently served by the canal system to individual wells.

The MVID diverts water from the Twisp and Methow Rivers and utilizes two canals to transport water to serve 1,368 acres of assessed lands within the district, all located within Okanogan County. The West Canal diverts water from the Twisp River at River Mile (RM) 4.3 and serves lands lying west of the Methow River. The East Canal diverts water from the Methow River at RM 44.8 and serves lands lying east of the Methow River. Historically, MVID has experienced difficulties in providing reliable service to all of its members each year, particularly those at the south end of two existing irrigation canals.

This decision may be appealed in accordance with OCC 14.04.220. Appeals must be made in writing to the Board of Okanogan County Commissioners, 123 5th Ave N Ste. 150, Okanogan, WA 98840. Appeals must be submitted or postmarked by 5:00 pm on August 13, 2014. Appeals shall state with specificity the elements of the environmental checklist and resulting determination the appellant finds objectionable and shall state the reason therefore. Appeals must include the $300.00 appeal fee. Failure to file a timely and complete appeal shall constitute waiver of all rights to an administrative appeal under county code.
