Environmental Assessment: Yuma Cove Razorback Sucker Rearing Pond

The document is an environmental assessment (EA) for the proposed repair and maintenance of a backwater pond located at Yuma Cove on Lake Mohave. The pond is used to raise razorback suckers, an endangered fish species, prior to releasing them into Lake Mohave. The pond is a critical component of the razorback recovery program. The earthen berm that separates the pond from Lake Mohave has slowly eroded away due to wind and wave action. Restoration is necessary to ensure the berm is not compromised and that the pond continues to function as a razorback grow-out area. The EA analyzes the impacts associated with repair of the berm as well as the impacts of the no-action alternative.
