ADDRESSES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE Department of the Army; Corps of Engineers North Atlantic Coast Comprehensive Study Department of the Army, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, DoD. ACTION: Notice of Report Availability. AGENCY: The Congressional response to the devastation in the wake of Hurricane Sandy included a mandate to collaborate with federal, state, tribal and local government agencies to regionally address the vulnerability of coastal populations at risk within the boundaries of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) North Atlantic Division. The goals of the North Atlantic Coast Comprehensive Study (NACCS), authorized under the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act, Public Law 113–2, were to: (1) Provide a risk management framework, consistent with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration/USACE Infrastructure Systems Rebuilding Principles; and (2) support resilient coastal communities and robust, sustainable coastal landscape systems, considering future sea level and climate change scenarios, to manage risk to vulnerable populations, property, ecosystems, and infrastructure. In addition, the NACCS evaluated institutional and other barriers to providing comprehensive SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Mr. Justin Ward, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Public Affairs. The NACCS recommends the use of a ninestep Coastal Storm Risk Management Framework, which is customizable for any coastal watershed and is informed by several planning tools and models that are included in the report, among other resources. To further manage coastal flood risk, the report also recommends better institutional alignment and financing, better use of pre-storm planning and post-storm monitoring tools, and better education on flood risk and the availability of flood risk management solutions. The report recognizes the long-term challenges facing the area, which makes it clear that integrated solutions that promote sustainable communities and ecosystems will be needed. The report also identifies nine high-risk areas that warrant additional analysis. They are: Rhode Island Coastline; Connecticut Coastline; New York-New Jersey Harbor and Tributaries; Nassau County Back Bays, NY; New Jersey Back Bays, NJ; Delaware Inland Bays and Delaware Bay Coast, DE; City of Baltimore, MD; Washington, DC; and City of Norfolk, VA. The NACCS report represents a start in the direction of the new paradigm that accounts for new and changing conditions—this will need the attention and commitment of public, private and commercial interests in order to succeed.
