Notice of Public Hearing and Business Meeting, 10132-10133 [2014-03863]

Download as PDF 10132 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 36 / Monday, February 24, 2014 / Notices at the Greenup Locks and Dam located on the Ohio River. A Feasibility Report and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was previously completed for the project in April 2000. This study recommended a 600-foot (ft) extension of the existing auxiliary lock chamber to a length of 1200 ft. The project was authorized by Congress in 2000; however, no funds have been appropriated for project construction. Due to the amount of time that has elapsed since completion of the Feasibility Report, and the associated economic, environmental and reliability changes that may have occurred during this time, Federal interest must be reevaluated. The project alternatives which were planned to be considered included the plans considered in the previous study as well as variations to these plans which may include both structural and nonstructural operational measures, and the No Action alternative. As part of this GRR, a Planning Charette was held in February 2013 with participation by the USACE Lakes and Rivers Division, Headquarters, and navigation stakeholders. Changes in the without project condition associated with revised reliability, updated traffic forecasts, funding constraints of the Inland Waterways Trust Fund, and higher priority inland navigation projects led the Charette team to recommend postponing this GRR. Therefore, an EIS is not anticipated at this time. Should the Corps start working on the GRR in the future, the scope and level of effort will be reevaluated. Leon F. Parrott, Colonel, Corps of Engineers, District Engineer.
