ADDRESSES: DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE The purpose of this DEIS is to analyze significant issues and information relevant to environmental concerns regarding the proposed ecosystem restoration at Liberty State Park, Hudson County, NJ. The restoration of the 234 acre interior section, currently fenced off and inaccessible, will provide substantial benefit to all 1,121 acres of Liberty State Park by linking previously developed and restored, but isolated, components of the park into one cohesive whole. The study was conducted under the authority of a resolution adopted by the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure of the U.S. House of Representatives on April 15, 1999, Docket 2596: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Resolved by the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure of the United States House of Representatives, That, the Secretary of the Army is requested to review the reports of the Chief of Engineers on the New York and New Jersey Channels, published as House Document 133, 74th Congress, 1st Session; the New York and New Jersey Harbor Entrance Channels and Anchorage Areas, published as Senate Document 45, 84th Congress, 1st Session; and the New York Harbor, NY Anchorage Channel, published as House Document 18, 71st Congress, 2nd Session, as well as other related reports with a view to determining the feasibility of environmental restoration and protection relating to water resources and sediment quality within the New York and New Jersey Port District, including but not limited to creation, enhancement, and restoration of aquatic, wetland, and adjacent upland habitats. The purpose of this DEIS is to analyze significant issues and information relevant to environmental concerns bearing on the proposed action or its anticipated impacts. The analysis indicates that short-term adverse environmental impacts, such as construction effects, would be balanced by long-term beneficial impacts. Monitoring for Cultural and Biological resources will be coordinated with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Marine Fisheries Service, and the New Jersey Historic Preservation Office. All activity associated with the PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 project would be undertaken in a way to minimize adverse impacts to sensitive habitats and threatened and endangered species, and adjacent shorelines, as well as to minimize cumulative impacts. The Notice of Intent (NOI) was filed in June of 2004. A Public Scoping Meeting was held in October 2002 and the results were collected in a Public Scoping Document. Results from public and agency scoping coordination are addressed in the DEIS. Copies of the DEIS are also available at the Jersey City Free Public Library, Main Library and Pavonia Branch Library.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The purpose of this DEIS is to analyze 
significant issues and information relevant to environmental concerns 
regarding the proposed reinforcement of an existing stone revetment 
wall at Montauk Point, NY. The U.S. Coast Guard and the Montauk 
Historical Society constructed the current revetment wall between 1990 
and 1992. The project study was conducted under the authority of 
resolution adopted by the Committee on Environment and Public Works of 
the U.S. Senate on May 15, 1991.

Resolved by the Committee on Environment and Public Works of the 
United States Senate, that the Secretary of the Army is hereby 
requested to review the report of the Chief of Engineers on Fire 
Island to Montauk Point, New York, published as House Document 
Number 86-425, 86th Congress, 2nd session, and other pertinent 
reports, to determine whether modifications of the recommendations 
contained therein are advisable at the present time, with a view to 
preserving, restoring, and protecting Montauk Point and vicinity, 
including the historic Montauk Lighthouse and associated facilities, 
from erosion, environmental degradation, and coastal storm damage.

    The purpose of this DEIS is to analyze significant issues and 
information relevant to environmental concerns bearing on the proposed 
action or its anticipated impacts. The analysis indicates that short-
term adverse environmental impacts, such as removal of benthic 
invertebrates in the revetment wall area, would be balanced by long-
term beneficial impacts. Monitoring for Cultural and Biological 
resources will be coordinated with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 
the National Marine Fisheries Service, and the New York State Office of 
Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. All activity associated 
with the project would be undertaken in a way to minimize adverse 
impacts to sensitive habitats and threatened and endangered species, 
and adjacent shorelines, as well as to minimize cumulative impacts.
    A 404(b)(1) evaluation has been prepared for the project and is 
included in the DEIS. The proposed action and alternatives do not 
represent a significant threat of degradation to the aquatic 
environment, and are in compliance with the 404(b)(1) Guidelines.
    The Notice of Intent (NOI) was filed in May of 2002. A Public 
Scoping Meeting was held in November 2001 and the results were 
collected in a Public Scoping Document. Results from public and agency 
scoping coordination are addressed in the DEIS. Copies of the DEIS are 
also available at the East Hampton Library and the Montauk Point 
Library.
