ADDRESSES: Ms. Susan Roeder, Environmental Protection Specialist, (703) 428–4520, e-mail: smroede@inscom.army.mil. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The intent of this project is to provide HQINSCOM with increased space that supports expanding intelligence missions and associated personnel increases, particularly for the IDC. the proposed IDC project provides a multi-story, multi-purpose, 233,000 gross square foot facility, to include all required mechanical, electrical, fire protection, redundant power and information systems. It will also include the installation of physical security and access control systems. A unique requirement of the IDC is its need for larger, open work areas which must also allow the flexibility of periodic reconfiguration. The typical, economical structural design of a 30 foot by 30 foot structural column grid is inadequate for the IDC. A minimum 30′ by 45′ grid is required. Other key components of this facility include the following: secure facility space; specialized operations space; special equipment storage; classrooms; server room; wellness room and showers; cafeteria; mechanical/ utility rooms; bathrooms; training area; storage areas; library; office space; and administrative support areas. Other required support facilities to be built include walks, curbs and gutters, surface parking, site improvements, HVAC, and power generation equipment. The IDC Environmental Assessment is available for public review at Directorate of Installation Support, Environmental and Natural Resource Division (9430 Jackson Loop, Suite 107, Fort Belvoir, VA). It is also available at the following four Fairfax County Public Library local branches: John Marshall Branch (6209 Rose Hill Drive, Alexandria, VA); Lorton Branch (9520 Richmond Hwy., Lorton, VA); Sherwood Hall Branch (2501 Sherwood Hall Lane, Alexandria, VA); and Kingstowne Branch (6500 Landsdowne Centre, Alexandria, VA).

ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, intends to prepare a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (DSEIS) for the Brevard County (MidReach) Shore Protection Feasibility Study. The study will focus on 7.6 miles of developed shoreline, also referred to as the ‘‘Mid-Reach’’, from the south end of Patrick Air Force Base to just north of Indialantic. Ongoing erosion problems are endangering the shoreline infrastructure within the study area. In cooperation with Brevard County, the study will evaluate alternative solutions that will maximize shore protection while minimizing environmental impacts.

The entire 7.6-mile length of the Mid-Reach shoreline has been critically eroded with 62% of its oceanfront development anticipated to be lost to storm damage during the next 50 years. Placement of beach quality sand from various sources along the Mid-Reach will be evaluated with the intent of providing the greatest opportunity of shoreline protection. Environmental considerations will be addressed in a DSEIS, which will supplement the ADDRESSES: E:\FR\FM\26APN1.SGM 26APN1 21402 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 79 / Tuesday, April 26, 2005 / Notices Environmental Impact Statement prepared for the Brevard County Shore Protection Project in 1996.
