Based on incorporation of the above mitigation measures, the experience gained during construction of the BHNIP, and lack of any water quality violations or other significant effects from the BHNIP, no significant impacts to the environment are expected from the Boston Harbor Inner Harbor Maintenance Dredging Project. All practicable means to avoid or minimize adverse environmental effects have been incorporated into the recommended plan. The public interest will best be served by implementing maintenance dredging as identified and described in the Supplemental Environmental Impact Report. Dated: August 1, 2006. Curtis L.
