Scope/Content: Abstract: This document is the final Environmental Assessment (EA) for a project that involves the removal of the Glenville (Linen Mill) Dam on the Baraboo River, in the Town of Greenfield, in Sauk County. The project is partially funded by the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Program (Wildlife Conservation Restoration Subprogram) that is administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Department of Natural Resources. Because of the funding source, the project must comply with both the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the Wisconsin Environmental Policy Act (WEPA) including Chapter NR 150, of the Wisconsin Administrative Code. This EA has been prepared to meet both Federal and State laws that require full public disclosure of projects that may affect the quality of the human environment. The purpose of an EA is to disclose, explain, and evaluate the environmental effects of a proposed government action to the decision-makers and the public. The EA describes and evaluates alternatives to the proposed course of action. The Draft EA is circulated for public review and comment to assure public participation in the process. A public informational meeting was held during the public review period to provide an opportunity for the public to obtain information about and to comment on the project. The public review period also gave interested and/or affected persons a chance to review and discuss the project, alternatives, and potential impacts. This final EA incorporates recognition of public concerns and addresses those that are within the scope of the EA and purpose for its development.
