Supplemental Water Alternatives

Map Springfield

A range of alternatives had previously been considered for the Supplemental Water Supply project. While the City had previously identified the Hunter Lake alternative as the preferred alternative in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) published in 2000, this Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) will undertake an updated analysis of all alternatives (see map) using current information. The SEIS will review all alternatives previously assessed in the FEIS and will include an analysis of reasonable alternatives consisting of the following: 
  • No Action alternative
  • Development of a new water supply reservoir
  • Development of groundwater well systems with associated pump stations and pipelines
  • Use of other existing surface water reservoirs
  • Dredging of Lake Springfield
Conservation measures apply to all alternatives, including the No Action alternative.
