Expiration date: 4/30/2018

All Interested Parties: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District, is proposing to undertake major repairs to the Codorus Creek Flood Risk Management (FRM) component of the overall Indian Rock Dam/Codorus Creek FRM Project on Codorus Creek. The project passes through West Manchester Township, Spring Garden Township, York City, North York Borough, and Springettsbury Township, all located in York County, Pennsylvania (Enclosure 1). USACE, Baltimore operates and maintains the FRM project, which was constructed in the' 1930s and operational in the 1940s. The FRM project is 4.8 miles in length, and includes a widened and deepened creek channel, levees, floodwalls, and bank protective works. The project's infrastructure is aging and in need of major repairs to ensure it continues to properly perform its FRM functions. At this time, rehabilitation of floodwall, levee, drainage structures, and bank protective works is anticipated. USACE, Baltimore is preparing an environmental assessment (EA) for the proposed repairs in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended. The current schedule calls for the draft EA to be publicly released in summer 2018. 

The purpose of this notice is to inform the public of the start of this assessment and to request any information that may affect the implementation of future maintenance work within the project. We request that federal and state agencies provide information concerning interests within your organization's area of responsibility or expertise, and the public provide information which may be pertinent to this project, within 30 days from the date of this notice to the address or listed below. A timely review of the enclosed information and a written response will be greatly appreciated and will assist us with preparation of the EA.
