The Maalaea Harbor project, sponsored by USACE and the State of Hawaii, Department of Land and Natural Resources, Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation (DOBOR), was originally authorized under Section 101 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1968, as amended. The Draft SEIS would have evaluated the environmental impacts of potential alternatives to address navigational safety and surge-related problems in Maalaea Harbor. Based on careful consideration of the implementation costs, regulatory requirements, and other concerns expressed by the community, the navigation improvement project for the Maalaea Harbor has been terminated by the project sponsors. Therefore, future preparation of an EIS is not necessary. The notice of intent to prepare an EIS is withdrawn and the NEPA process is hereby terminated.

Through this effort, the decision to terminate the project was made based on careful consideration of the high cost associated with the proposed improvements (particularly in light of the current and foreseeable economic conditions), the regulatory constraints and mitigation requirements for unavoidable impacts to coral reefs, and community concerns regarding impacts to surf sites and natural resources.

Withdrawal of Notice of Intent To Prepare a Joint Draft 
Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for a Proposed Navigation 
Improvement Project at Maalaea Harbor, Maui, HI (Second SEIS for the 
Project)

AGENCY: Department of the Army, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, DoD.

ACTION: Notice of intent (withdrawal).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On July 9, 1997, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) 
announced its intent to prepare a joint Draft Supplemental 
Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) in accordance with the National 
Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, for the Proposed 
Navigation Improvement Project at Maalaea Harbor, Maui, Hawaii. The 
Maalaea Harbor project, sponsored by USACE and the State of Hawaii, 
Department of Land and Natural Resources, Division of Boating and Ocean 
Recreation (DOBOR), was originally authorized under Section 101 of the 
Rivers and Harbors Act of 1968, as amended. The Draft SEIS would have 
evaluated the environmental impacts of potential alternatives to 
address navigational safety and surge-related problems in Maalaea 
Harbor.
    Based on careful consideration of the implementation costs, 
regulatory requirements, and other concerns expressed by the community, 
the navigation improvement project for the Maalaea Harbor has been 
terminated by the project sponsors. Therefore, future preparation of an 
EIS is not necessary. The notice of intent to prepare an EIS is 
withdrawn and the NEPA process is hereby terminated.

the Web site for the project at http://www.maalaeaharborproject.com/ or
