SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

1. Background

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), in partnership with the 
New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) as the non-
Federal sponsor is undertaking this study. Extensive development in the 
Peckman River Basin has resulted in flood damages with flooding 
occurring from intense thunderstorms and heavy rainfall. The District 
was authorized under U.S. House of Representatives Resolution Docket 
2644, dated June 21, 2000 to identify recommendations in the interest 
of water resources development.
    A Feasibility Cost Sharing Agreement (FCSA) was executed in 2002 
with the NJDEP in 2002. A Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an 
Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was published in the May 14, 2004 
issue of the Federal Register (69 FR 26811). A NEPA scoping meeting 
held on February 11, 2004 in Little Falls, New Jersey at the initiation 
of the study. The alternative analysis was completed in 2014, and non-
structural improvements located within the 10 year floodplain within 
Little Falls, N.J. with a bypass culvert designed to mitigate the flood 
risk from the Peckman River and floodwalls along Great Notch Brook in 
Woodland Park was identified as the Tentatively Selected National 
Economic Development Plan. The NJDEP requested a Locally Preferred Plan 
that consists of a levee/floodwall system in Little Falls along with 
the bypass culvert for the Peckman River and floodwalls along Great 
Notch Brook in Woodland Park. The LPP plan will be designed to protect 
Little Falls and Woodland Park from the 1% annual chance exceedance 
(100-yr) event from the Peckman River.

2. Project Area

    The project area encompasses the portion of the Peckman River, 
Great Notch Brook and a portion of the Passaic River located in the 
Township of Little Falls and the Borough of Woodland Park in Passaic 
County, New Jersey.

3. Public Participation

    The Corps and the NJDEP are currently anticipating hosting a NEPA 
Scoping Meeting in late November/early December 2017. Public notices 
announcing the meeting date, time, location and agenda will be 
published in the appropriate local newspapers, Little Falls Township 
Web page, Borough of Woodland Park Web page and on the Corps' New York 
District Web page (see STUDY WEBPAGE AND ADDRESSES) and will be 
distributed to the local stakeholders and known interested parties.
    A scoping comment period of 30 days will be established from the 
scheduled date of the meeting to allow agencies, organizations and 
individuals to submit comments, questions and/or concerns regarding the 
Feasibility Study. Comments, concerns and information submitted to the 
Corps will be evaluated and considered during the development of the 
Draft EIS.

preparation of the environmental impact statement (EIS) and meeting the 
requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act and the NEPA 
Implementing Regulations of the President's Council on Environmental 
Quality (40 CFR 1500-1508). Federal agencies interested in 
participating as a Cooperating Agency are requested to submit a letter 
of intent to Colonel Thomas D. Asbery, District Engineer (see
