ACTION: Notice of intent. Pursuant to the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) plans to prepare an integrated Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed Nassau County Back Bays (NCBB) Coastal Storm Risk Management (CSRM) Feasibility Study. The EIS will evaluate environmental impacts from reasonable project alternatives designed to reduce future flood risk in ways that support the longterm resilience and sustainability of the coastal ecosystem and surrounding communities due to sea level rise, local subsidence and storms; and to reduce the economic costs and risks associated with large scale flood and storm events in the area known as the Atlantic Coast of New York, the Nassau County Back Bays. ADDRESSES: Send written comments and suggestions concerning the scope of issues to be evaluated within the EIS to Scott Sanderson, Project Manager, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Philadelphia District, Planning Division—Coastal Section, (CENAP–PL–PC), 100 Penn Square East, Wanamaker Building, Philadelphia, PA 19107–3390, scott.a.sanderson@usace.army.mil or SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55841 via email to Angela Sowers, NEPA coordinator, angela.sowers@ usace.army.mil. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Questions about the overall NCBB CSRM Feasibility Study should be directed to Scott Sanderson at scott.a.sanderson@usace.army.mil or (215) 656–6571. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1. Background As a result of Hurricane Sandy in October 2012, Congress passed Public Law 113–2, which authorized supplemental appropriations to Federal agencies for expenses related to the consequences of Hurricane Sandy. The Corps is investigating measures to reduce future flood risk in ways that support the long-term resilience and sustainability of the coastal ecosystem and surrounding communities, and reduce the economic costs and risks associated with flood and storm events. In support of this goal, the Corps completed the North Atlantic Coast Comprehensive Study (NAACS), which identified nine high risk areas on the Atlantic Coast for further analysis based on preliminary findings. The NCBB area was identified as one of the nine areas of high risk, or Focus Areas, that warrants an in-depth investigation into potential CSRM measures. During Hurricane Sandy, the study area communities were severely affected with large areas subjected to erosion, storm surge, and wave damage along the Atlantic Ocean shoreline, and flooding of communities within and surrounding bays. Along the Atlantic Ocean, surge and waves inundated low lying areas, and contributed to the flooding along the shoreline of the interior of the bays. Hurricane Sandy illustrated the need to re-evaluate the entire back-bay area as a system, when considering risk management measures. The original Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an EIS was published in the Federal Register on Friday, April 21, 2017 (82 FR 18746), but was withdrawn by publication in the Federal Register on June 8, 2020 (85 FR 35801). The original NOI was withdrawn in order to align the rescoped study schedule with Executive Order (E.O.) 13807, ‘‘One Federal Decision Framework for the Environmental Review and Authorization Process for Major Infrastructure Projects under E.O. 13807.’’ The purpose of the study is to determine the feasibility of a project to reduce the risk of coastal storm damage in the back bays of Nassau County, New York, while contributing to the E:\FR\FM\10SEN1.SGM 10SEN1
