United States Code Background and Purpose The Final EIS was prepared in accordance with the requirements of NEPA; the CEQ regulations implementing NEPA (40 CFR 1500– 1508); DHS procedures for implementing NEPA (DHS Instruction Manual 023–01–001–01 (series)), U.S. Coast Guard procedures for implementing NEPA (COMDTINST 16475.1(series)); and other applicable DHS and U.S. Coast Guard policies and guidance. A Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare the EIS was published in the Federal Register on April 26, 2018 (83 FR 18319) and the Notice of Availability (NOA) of the Draft EIS was published in the Federal Register on August 6, 2018 (83 FR 38317). The U.S. Coast Guard is the lead agency for the proposed action. The purpose of the proposed action is to design, build, and operate new PSCs to carry out the U.S. Coast Guard’s primary missions supported by the current polar icebreaker fleet. Expected missions include Ice Operations, Defense Readiness, Aids to Navigation, Living Marine Resources, Marine Safety, Marine Environmental Protection, Other Law Enforcement, Ports, Waterways, and Coastal Security, and Search and Rescue. The U.S. Coast Guard’s current fleet of PIBs consists of two heavy icebreakers, Coast Guard Cutter (CGC) POLAR STAR and CGC POLAR SEA, and one medium icebreaker, CGC HEALY. The U.S. Coast Guard’s heavy icebreakers have both exceeded their designed 30 year service life. The current PSC program acquisition strategy is approved to construct up to three heavy PSCs and may (at a future date) potentially expand to include up to three medium icebreakers, with planned service design lives of 30 years each. The first of these new PSCs is expected to delivered in 2023. Because the first new PSC would not be operational in the Polar Regions until at least 2023, new information may become available after the completion of this EIS. In that case, supplemental NEPA documentation may, as appropriate, be prepared in support of individual proposed actions. Examples of new information may include, but are not limited to, changes to a species listing status or any other applicable laws and directives, and information regarding mission, training, homeporting, maintenance, and eventual decommissioning of the new PSCs. In executing its various missions, the U.S. Coast Guard protects the public, the environment, and U.S. economic and security interests in any maritime E:\FR\FM\15FEN1.SGM 15FEN1
