Notice of Proposed Methodology for the 2018 Delaware River and Bay Water Quality Assessment Report, 45009 [2017-20682]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 186 / Wednesday, September 27, 2017 / Notices structures and any compensatory mitigation is complete. These estimates are based on assumptions of Congressional funding levels, rock prices, dredging costs, sediment loads, mitigation costs, etc. Because these assumptions are uncertain, the estimated quantity of construction could differ from actual implementation. Environmental impacts of the work associated with the Selected Plan will continue to be avoided and minimized to the extent practicable. Placement of river training structures is expected to increase the acreage of low-velocity habitat that is considered important habitat for many MMR fish species. However, placement of river training structures is also expected to reduce shallow to moderate-depth, moderate-to high-velocity habitat that is important for some MMR fish guilds. Analysis of the impacts of the Selected Plan to main channel border habitat suggests that future construction of river training structures will result in the consideration of compensatory mitigation measures. The specific impacts of each work area and any necessary compensatory mitigation measures will be covered in Tier II Site Specific Environmental Assessments, as appropriate.
