The Corps conducted a public scoping meeting on June 16, 1999, in Oceanside, California. This scoping meeting was held to solicit public input on significant environmental issues associated with the on-going flood control project. A second public scoping meeting will not be held. Useful information requested includes other environmental studies, published and unpublished data, and alternatives that should be addressed in the analysis. Individuals and agencies may offer information relevant or data relevant to the proposed study and provide comments by mailing the information to Ms. Tiffany Kayama (see DATES and ADDRESSES). Request to be placed on the mailing list for announcements and the Draft SEIS/EIR also should be sent to Ms. Kayama (see ADDRESSES). A fully array of alternatives to the proposed action will be developed for analyses, including the no action plan. Alex C. Dornstauder, Colonel, U.S. Army, District Engineer.

There are not expected to be any adverse impacts on public health and safety; the affected area (Acme Basin B) is not environmentally unique; the significant WCA–1 wetlands will benefit by a relatively small increment, as will Lake Worth Lagoon. No public controversy related to the proposed alternatives developed during scoping for this project, nor are there high levels of uncertainty, unique or unknown risks associated with the study, nor have surveys revealed the presence of any significant wildlife, cultural resource elements or contaminants. An environmental Assessment will be prepared and coordinated for the proposed action. This document is expected to be available in August 2005.

The notice is canceled because, during scoping for this project and development of alternatives, it appeared that each of the alternatives would affect the same 410 acres of agricultural lands, converting sugar cane into functional wetlands, resulting in discharge of cleaner water into Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge (WCA–1), increasing the spatial extent of Everglades wetlands and reducing freshwater flows into Lake Worth Lagoon.
