SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The draft EIS has been prepared to meet the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) to evaluate the environmental and socioeconomic impacts of implementing proposed actions at PCMS. Soldiers stationed at Fort Carson need to train together, in an integrated manner, during large-scale collective training events. Integrated brigade combat team (BCT) level training is necessary at PCMS; without such training, Fort Carson Soldiers would be forced to train in their tasks in isolation, and not in the integrated manner in which they would fight. The draft EIS affords Fort Carson the opportunity to review its environmental program and the current state of the environment on PCMS, and decide on how best to structure training events for the recently reconfigured Armor and Infantry BCTs and the Stryker BCT. Alternative 1A would establish a benchmark for brigade-level training intensity. The historic limitation of 4.7 months of brigade-level mechanized maneuver would remain in effect to allow for land rest and recovery. This alternative would enable the 1⁄4 Stryker BCT to conduct training at PCMS using the Stryker family of vehicles. Alternative 1B includes Alternative 1A and new training activities and training infrastructure changes at PCMS. Training activities include nonexplosive aviation gunnery, flare, electronic jamming systems, laser target sighting, tactical demolition, unmanned and unarmed aerial reconnaissance systems, and light unmanned ground vehicle training. In terms of training infrastructure, PCMS would establish two new drop-zones and, for use during periods when training activity poses a hazard to aircraft, restricted airspace directly over PCMS. The restricted airspace would be established up to 10,000 feet above mean sea level, and activated as required by training scenarios. The decision-maker may select all of these elements or only some. Environmental impacts associated with the implementation of the proposed action could include significant impacts to soils as a result of maneuvering with tracked and wheeled vehicles on fragile soils; vegetation and wildlife as a result of large maneuver asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:52 Oct 30, 2014 Jkt 235001 corridors, which could potentially result in a conversion or net loss of habitat, depending upon frequency of use and recovery time; and water resources as a result of increased sedimentation in nearby impaired waters. Impacts in the areas of airspace, cultural resources, facilities and utilities, hazardous materials, hazardous waste, and toxic substances, socioeconomics, and traffic and transportation were all determined to be less than significant. The draft EIS identifies potential mitigation measures to reduce adverse impacts. Soldier training would be entirely within the existing boundaries of PCMS, except for limited air and convoy operations. The proposed action does not include, nor would it require, any expansion of PCMS. No additional land will be sought or acquired as a result of this action. Under the No Action Alternative, the Army would continue current mission activities and training operations, which includes authorized brigade-level training, as well as range use and training land management. Cooperating Agencies: The Federal Aviation Administration is a cooperating agency on the Draft EIS as the proposed action includes airspace reclassification. Public Meeting and Public Comments: A public meeting on the Draft EIS will be held at PCMS. Information on the date and time for the public meeting will be published locally. Federally recognized Tribes, federal, state, and local agencies, organizations, and the public are invited to be involved in the process for the preparation of this EIS by participating in public meetings and/or submitting written comments on the Draft EIS to (see ADDRESSES) no later than 45 days from the publication of the Notice of Availability in the Federal Register.

ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), New Orleans District intends to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to inform a decision on a Department of the Army (DA) permit application pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA) and Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act, and permissions request under 33 U.S.C. 408, submitted by the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana (CPRA) for the Mississippi River SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Reintroduction into the Maurepas Swamp (MRRMS) freshwater diversion project (proposed project). The USACE has determined the proposed project will result in significant impacts to the human environment, therefore an EIS is necessary to ensure compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and as a basis for both the permit decision and the Section 408 permissions. The DA permit and the 408 permissions are two separate processes with different authorities analyzed by different mission areas (including Regulatory and Civil Works) inside the USACE. Under Section 404 of the CWA and Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act, the District Engineer permits the discharge of dredged or fill material into the waters of the United States as well as work, to include the installation and maintenance of structures, in navigable waters of the U.S., if the discharge meets the requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency’s 404(b)(1) guidelines, and the proposal is determined to not be contrary to the overall public interest. Under 33 U.S.C. 408, the Chief of Engineers grants permission to alter, modify, or impair an existing USACE project if it is not injurious to the public interest and does not impair the usefulness of such work. The proposed project involves structural crossings of the Federal Mississippi River and Tributaries (MR&T) Levee and could potentially impact the Mississippi River Navigation Channel, the future footprint of the Federal West Shore Lake Pontchartrain Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction System levee project as well as other Federal projects. USACE Regulatory and Civil Works will coordinate on all aspects of the production of the EIS.

Box 60267, New Orleans, LA 70160 or by email at CEMVNMaurepas@usace.army.mil. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Questions about the DA permit, project and EIS should be directed to: Mr. Kenny Blanke at (504) 862–1217, or the email above.
