Boundary Adjustment at Hopewell Culture National Historical Park, 74811 [2016-26013]

Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 208 / Thursday, October 27, 2016 / Notices The Draft Breach Plan/EIS analyzes the impacts of these three alternatives on the human environment by examining five key issues: (1) The wilderness breach is geologically bound by erosion-resistant clay in the geological record to the east and west of the breach; however, there is uncertainty regarding how the breach will evolve in the future (narrow or widen from existing conditions), how far it might migrate along the coast, and how it affects sediment transport. (2) There is concern that the presence of the wilderness breach increases the potential for flooding on the mainland of Long Island during storm events, increasing the potential risk to life and property. (3) The wilderness breach has altered the physical characteristics of the Fire Island Wilderness and Great South Bay, which has led to changes in the ecological communities. (4) The wilderness breach resulted in the creation of a marine wilderness area that did not previously exist. The mechanical closure of the breach would alter the existing wilderness qualities of the area. (5) Driving access has changed since formation of the wilderness breach. There is concern that changes in driving access for emergency response could increase risks to public health and safety in several Fire Island communities. To examine these issues, the environmental analysis focuses on the following resources: • Wilderness character; • sediment transport and geomorphology; • water quality; • ecosystem structure and processes; • benthic communities; • finfish and decapod crustaceans; • socioeconomics; and • public health and safety.
