SUMMARY: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Seattle District is preparing an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to analyze the environmental effects of replacing an existing barge loading dock to facilitate resumption of sand and gravel mining operations at Northwest Aggregates’ Maury Island facility.

A portion of this marine construction work was done prior to the Court’s 2009 ruling; the balance remains incomplete at this time. The EIS will analyze the environmental effects of the issuance of the Corps permit, including additional analysis of potential impacts of the project on the marine environment, including endangered species (Chinook salmon, Southern Resident Killer whales, rockfish, eulachon, and other PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32919 listed species) and forage fish, additional analysis and evaluation of the no action and other alternatives to achieve the project purpose, and additional analysis of cumulative impacts associated with the permit project.

including additional analysis of potential impacts of the project on 
the marine environment, including endangered species (Chinook salmon, 
Southern Resident Killer whales, rockfish, eulachon, and other listed 
species) and forage fish, additional analysis and evaluation of the no
