The implementation guidance to Sections 1168 and 1225 of WRDA 2018 may be found here: https:// www.usace.army.mil/Missions/CivilWorks/Project-Planning/LegislativeLinks/wrdal2018/wrda2018l impguide/. The USAF Disposition Study will analyze three types of alternatives at the USAF site: (1) The no action; (2) complete de-authorization by Congress of the Federal missions at the site and disposal of the properties; and (3) partial de-authorization and disposal. In addition, the study will examine opportunities to augment these three alternatives by considering measures which: (1) Preserve recreational opportunities; (2) enhance recreational opportunities; (3) preserve the health of the ecosystem; (4) enhance the health of the ecosystem; (5) maintain the benefits to the natural ecosystem; and (6) maintain the benefits to the human environment. The partial disposition alternative will maintain the flood control capability of the structure. If the Corps determines that Federal interest no longer exists, it must consider, and may recommend, removal of the project or separable elements of the project under existing authorities. In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), an Environmental Assessment (EA) for this study is anticipated and will be prepared by the St. Paul District. The Corps is soliciting public comments on the scope of the EA and significant issues that should be addressed. The Corps will also accept comments related to potential new ownership and management measures. The Disposition Study ends when the final report is transmitted to the Corps of Engineers’ Headquarters Office for review and processing of recommendations. Complete and partial de-authorization would require Congressional Approval. Two public scoping meetings are planned as discussed in the DATES section above. The purpose of these meetings is to discuss background of the study, identify the properties and structures that are the subject of the study, discuss the Federal disposal process, instruct parties on how to document their interest in future ownership, provide an opportunity to submit comments, and identify issues that should be addressed in the anticipated EA. While comments and questions will be entertained at the public meetings, the meetings will not be recorded nor minutes prepared. All formal comments will be requested to be provided in writing. Written comments VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:56 Jul 17, 2019 Jkt 247001 will be accepted at the meetings. Comments can also be submitted by the methods listed in the ADDRESSES section. Once the draft EA is complete and made available for review, there will be additional opportunity for public comment through the NEPA process. Persons needing reasonable accommodations in order to attend and participate in the public scoping meetings should contact the person listed under the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section as soon as possible. In order to allow sufficient time to process requests, please make contact no later than one week before the public meeting. Written comments, including email comments, should be sent to the Corps at the address given in the ADDRESSES section of this Notice. Comments should be specific and pertain only to the issues relating to the action and the anticipated EA. The Corps will include all comments in the project record. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information- will be publicly available. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, the Corps cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. All submissions from organizations or businesses and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses will be available for public review to the extent consistent with applicable law.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Applicable laws and regulations are section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 4321–4370, as implemented by the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR parts 1500–1508). The study authority is Section 4033 of the Water Resources Development Act of 2007 (Pub. L. 110–114), whereby the Secretary shall conduct a study to determine the feasibility of carrying out a project for hurricane and storm damage reduction and flood damage reduction in the vicinity of Vanderbilt, Park Shore, and Naples beaches, Collier County Florida. The primary problem is that existing protection is not adequate to prevent excessive storm damage and flooding from occurring during major coastal storms. Coastal flooding is worsening due to climate change induced sea level rise, which is also amplifying storm surge height. These trends are expected to continue and worsen due to sea level rise accelerating over time, a trend already observed in recent decades. Measures being considered include beach berms and dunes, floodwalls with gates, storm surge barriers, groins, seawalls, buyouts/ elevations of buildings, wet and/or dry flood-proofing of buildings, and naturebased features potentially including mangrove restoration, oyster and/or coral reef restoration, and seagrass restoration. USACE is the lead federal agency and Collier County will be the non-federal sponsor for the study.

The study authority is Public Law 84–71, which authorized the examination and survey of the coastal and tidal areas of the eastern and southern United States, with particular reference to areas where severe damages have occurred from hurricane winds and tides.

Coastal flooding is worsening due to climate change induced sea level rise, which is also amplifying storm surge height. These trends are expected to continue and worsen due to sea level rise accelerating over time, a trend already observed in recent decades.
