2016 – March 3 – Augment Annie Springs Water Supply

Augment Annie Springs Water Supply Environmental Assessment

Date: March 3, 2016
Contact: Sean Denniston, 541-594-3008

Crater Lake National Park officials announced today the release of the Augment Annie Springs Water Supply Environmental Assessment (EA) for public review. The EA analyzes alternative sources of potable water to ensure an adequate, safe, long-term supply for the park’s developed areas. The National Park Service proposes to utilize an existing exploratory well as a new groundwater source for potable water that can either supplement the Annie Springs surface water source or provide a sole source of supply to the park water system should Annie Springs not be available. The purpose of this action is to supplement the Annie Springs source in Crater Lake National Park to ensure sufficient water for human consumption, sanitation, life safety, and fire protection, including historic structure protection.

The National Park Service is seeking public input on the actions proposed in the Augment Annie Springs Water Supply Environmental Assessment. Comments about any aspect of the EA can be submitted during a 30-day public review period, from March 3 until April 3, 2016. Comments may be submitted online or sent by mail. The preferred method for receiving comments is via the Augment Annie Springs Water Supply project page on the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment website at:
