The Newmarket Creek watershed is subject to flooding from both rainfall and tidal events, and there is a history of flood damage within the watershed.

USACE is the lead federal agency and the city of Hampton will be the nonfederal sponsor for the study. The city of Hampton has experienced an accelerating increase in nuisance flooding due to storms and tidal events of varying magnitude, with large storms (nor’easters and hurricanes) often causing major flooding in many areas of the City.

As required by Council on Environmental Quality’s Principles, Requirements and Guidelines for Water and Land Related Resources Implementation Studies all reasonable alternatives to the proposed Federal action that meet the purpose and need will be considered in the EA. These alternatives will include no action and a range of reasonable alternatives for reducing flood risk within the Newmarket Creek and its watershed within the city of Hampton.

Minority-Serving Institution means an institution that is eligible to receive assistance under sections 316 through 320 of part A of title III, under part B of title III, or under title V of the HEA. Note: We will award either two or three points to an application that meets this priority. If an MSI or community college is a single applicant, or the lead applicant in a consortium or partnership, the application will receive three additional points. If an MSI or community college is a member of a consortium or partnership, but not the lead applicant, the application will receive two additional points. No application will receive more than three additional points for this priority.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Newmarket Creek watershed is subject to

flood damage within the watershed. USACE is investigating measures to 
reduce future flood risk in ways that support the long[hyphen]term 
resilience and sustainability of the surrounding communities, and 
reduce the economic costs and risks associated with flood and tidal 
events.
    USACE is the lead federal agency and the city of Hampton will be

and tidal events of varying magnitude, with large storms (nor'easters 
and hurricanes) often causing major flooding in many areas of the City. 
The feasibility study will address potential structural and non-
structural alternatives to mitigate impacts from flooding and 
determining the Federal interest in cost-sharing for those 
alternatives.
    As required by Council on Environmental Quality's Principles, 
Requirements and Guidelines for Water and Land Related Resources 
Implementation Studies all reasonable alternatives to the proposed 
Federal action that meet the purpose and need will be considered in the 
EA. These alternatives will include no action and a range of reasonable 
alternatives for reducing flood risk within the Newmarket Creek and its 
watershed within the city of Hampton.
