Relocate Echo Bay Launch Ramp for Visitor Recreation

Lake Mead National Recreation Area » Relocate Echo Bay Launch Ramp for Visitor Recreation » Document List

In accordance with the 2018 General Management Plan Amendment/Low-Water Plan, Lake Mead National Recreation Area proposes construction of a primitive launch ramp with associated access road and parking lot. The access road, parking lot, and launch ramp will not be paved. An area adjacent to the access road has been identified for excess soil placement associated with this action. The purpose of this action is to allow primitive launch capability at this location through 1,000 feet water elevation.

The National Park Service is seeking public comment on potential cultural resources that may be impacted by the proposed work, in accordance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. A map showing the project location and the 2018 GMP Low Water Plan can be found under the Project Links by selecting Document List.

The area has been surveyed for cultural resources by the Lake Mead NRA cultural resources staff. No cultural materials were encountered. The Echo Bay Mission 66 Historic District is west of the project area. There are no actions proposed that would impact the historic district. Formal consultation with Indigenous communities and the Nevada State Historic Preservation Officer are forthcoming.
