North Atlantic Coast Comprehensive Study

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

ACTION: Notice of study initiation; correction on study review.

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

SUMMARY: Information included in the Federal Register Notice published 
on June 19, 2013, 78 FR 36753, has changed. The notice published on 
June 19, 2013 stated: ``A draft of the North Atlantic Coast 
Comprehensive Study will be available for public review and comment in 
early 2014 and a final report is due to Congress in January 2015.'' As 
the study advanced, it has been determined that formal public review 
and comment period of a draft of the North Atlantic Coast Comprehensive 
Study report document will not occur in early 2014 as previously 
stated. However, in order to prepare a report in the legislatively set 
time frame for completion of 24 months and to embrace the extensive 
geographic area impacted by Hurricane Sandy, as well as to promote 
public involvement throughout, various mechanisms to provide 
information to the public and solicit input have been established. The 
Study's public Web site, launched in May 2013, has allowed for public 
input on resiliency and other key aspects of the Study, and offers 
interested stakeholders the opportunity to receive updates on the Study 
as they become available. In addition, a Federal Register notice was 
published on October 4, 2013 requesting peer reviewed data relevant to 
the Comprehensive Study. Submissions were accepted through December 31, 
2013, to allow for adequate time to review and consider for 
incorporation. This input, as well as input gathered from public 
engagements, is being used in development of the Comprehensive Study. 
In addition, the Comprehensive Study has sought to engage technical 
subject matter experts across all levels of government, academia, 
NGO's, and the private sector, on a national and international basis. 
PL 113-2 specifically requires the North Atlantic Coast Comprehensive 
Study to be conducted in coordination with other federal agencies, and 
state, local, and tribal officials to ensure consistency with other 
plans to be developed. While the Study is not a Decision Document, it 
has been scoped as a foundation and catalyst for further evaluation of 
coastal flood risk. Subsequent federal agency decision documents would 
likely include a public comment period required for screening feasible 
alternatives in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act.
