The LPP is the plan that, in the opinion of the non-Federal sponsors, best met the needs of the local community. The LPP was presented as the ND20K Diversion in the Final Feasibility Report/Environmental Impact Statement (FFREIS) (USACE 2011) and became the USACE’s Selected Plan during the development of the FFREIS. The Supplemental Environmental Assessment (USACE 2013) identified the LPP (the Selected Plan) as the Federally Recommended Plan (FRP) for the USACE which was modified and further evaluated in the Supplemental Environmental Assessment (USACE 2013) as the Southern Alignment Alternative. The Project has since has been further modified during the earlier development of the Minnesota environmental impact statement (EIS) and is presented as the Project in this EIS.
