Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), Region One, has completed a supplemental environmental assessment (EA) for a permit application from Flathead County for boat ramp construction on Church Slough (T28N, R21W, S36). After reviewing public comments and additional information, FWP has decided to uphold the previous decision to provide a permit to Flathead County for the construction of a concrete boat ramp on Church Slough. The decision based on the EA concludes that the approval of the county’s plans to install the boat ramp at the slough does not conflict with any local, state, or federal laws. The EA attracted a large number of comments; the great majority of the 150 comments supported the county’s proposal. The questions and comments with FWP responses are contained in the Decision Notice for the Permit Application from Flathead County for Boat Ramp Construction on Church Slough Supplemental EA.
