South Carolina Electric & Gas Company; Notice Soliciting Scoping Comments, 9316-9317 [2019-04679]

Download as PDF 9316 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 50 / Thursday, March 14, 2019 / Notices Approximately 479 parking spaces would be displaced at the Dean Harwood Parking Lot; however, vehicle parking would be compensated by reorganization of existing parking lots and improvement and construction of some combination of several nearby lots (i.e., Shed 1567 lot, Lot 33, the Wedge, and the Bachelor Enlisted Quarters lot) that would be covered with compacted gravel and reorganized to provide replacement parking spaces. Although the final configuration and dimensions of the proposed replacement parking lots would not be known until the time of final design, the replacement lots would be expected to provide up to approximately 479 parking spaces. Under Alternative 2, DLA would resize the DLA-occupied portion of the NAVSTA Norfolk HAZMAT warehouse to meet square footage requirements, renovate the DLA-occupied portions of the NAVSTA Norfolk and NNSY HAZMAT warehouses, and demolish and replace both gas cylinder sheds and pavement areas. The HAZMAT warehouses would be properly configured for optimized storage capacity and upgraded in accordance with fire- and life-safety requirements and per the facility condition assessment upgrade recommendations for each site. Description of the No Action Alternative: Under the No Action Alternative, DLA would continue to store HAZMAT in the existing HAZMAT warehouses and gas cylinder sheds on NAVSTA Norfolk and NNSY. Shed X–380 (gas cylinder shed at NAVSTA Norfolk) would continue to degrade and HAZMAT storage would reach overcapacity at the NNSY HAZMAT facilities due to projected future workload increases. The HAZMAT facilities would continue to be improperly sized for their current and future mission demands; have extensive fire- and life-safety hazards, poor utility conditions, insufficient ventilation, and inefficient storage area configurations; and soon be in conflict with the NAVSTA Norfolk Master Plan and NNSY Installation Development Plan. The No Action Alternative would not meet the purpose of and need for the Proposed Action. Potential Environmental Impacts: No significant effects on environmental resources would be expected from the Proposed Action. Insignificant, adverse effects on air quality, water resources, geological resources, cultural resources, biological resources, land use and visual VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:22 Mar 13, 2019 Jkt 247001 resources, noise, infrastructure, transportation, public health and safety, and hazardous materials and wastes would be expected. Insignificant, beneficial effects on water resources, geological resources, land use and visual resources, noise, infrastructure, public health and safety, hazardous materials and wastes, and socioeconomics would be expected. No impacts on airspace management/safety and environmental justice would be expected. Details of the environmental consequences are discussed in the EA, which is hereby incorporated by reference. Determination: DLA has determined that implementation of the Proposed Action will not have a significant effect on the human environment. Human environment was interpreted comprehensively to include the natural and physical environment and the relationship of people with that environment. Specifically, no highly uncertain or controversial impacts, unique or unknown risks, or cumulatively significant effects were identified. Implementation of the Proposed Action will not violate any federal, state, or local laws. Based on the results of the analyses performed during preparation of the EA and lack of comments received during the public comment period, Mr. Gordon B. Hackett III, Director, DLA Installation Management, concludes that implementation of the Proposed Action at NAVSTA Norfolk and NNSY does not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment within the context of NEPA. Therefore, an environmental impact statement for the Proposed Action is not required. Dated: March 8, 2019. Aaron T. Siegel, Alternate OSD Federal Register Liaison Officer, Department of Defense.

The Fairfield Pumped Storage Development consists of: (1) Parr Reservoir which serves as the lower pool; (2) the 6,800-acre Monticello Reservoir (upper reservoir), at normal maximum elevation 424.3 feet NAVD 88, formed by four earthen dams (A, B, C, and D); (3) a 265-foot-long gated intake channel, located between dams B and C; (4) four 800-foot-long surface penstocks bifurcating into eight penstocks; (5) an underground generating station, which houses eight pumped-turbine units; and (6) transmission facilities that consist of three 7,000-foot-long lines extending from the Fairfield switch station to the non-project V.C. Summer switchyard. The Fairfield Pumped Storage Development is operated to generate during peak demand periods. Generation usually occurs during the day, with the upper reservoir replenished by pumping water at night (non-peak period). The Parr Shoals Development serves as the lower reservoir for the pumped storage project. m.
