Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Navy, Navy Department
The Department of the Navy (DON), after carefully weighing the operational and environmental consequences of the proposed action, announces its decision to deepen approximately five miles of Norfolk Harbor Channel, the Federal navigational channel in the Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River, separating Norfolk and Portsmouth, Virginia. Dredging in the heavily-used waterway would occur from the Lamberts Point Deperming Station in the Lamberts Bend Reach, south to Naval Support Activity Norfolk Naval Shipyard, commonly referred to as the Norfolk Naval Shipyard (NNSY), in the Lower Reach. Dredged material would be placed at The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' (USACE) Craney Island Dredged Material Management Area (CIDMMA). The deepening project will establish continuously safe and expeditious transit routes for U.S. Naval Ships to Lamberts Point Deperming Station and NNSY. Dredging would occur completely within the existing USACE-maintained federal navigation channel. In its decision, the Navy considered applicable executive orders, including an analysis of the effects of its actions in compliance with the Endangered Species Act, the Coastal Zone Management Act, and the National Historic Preservation Act, and the

Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers, Engineers Corps, Army Department
In the July 15, 2009, issue of the Federal Register (74 FR 34311) the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers published a proposal to take two actions concerning Nationwide Permit 21, which authorizes discharges of dredged or fill material into waters of the United States for surface coal mining activities. The two proposed actions are to suspend NWP 21 to prohibit its use to authorize surface coal mining activities in the Appalachian region of Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia, and then to modify NWP 21 to make that prohibition permanent until NWP 21 expires on March 18, 2012. In the July 15, 2009, notice we also offered commenters opportunity to request a public hearing. In the August 13, 2009, issue of the Federal Register (74 FR 40815), we extended the comment period to September 14, 2009. We have received several requests to hold public hearings, and have determined that hearings would afford us the opportunity to gain additional information to assist us in reaching decisions on these two proposed actions. Therefore, we will be holding public hearings in each of the six affected states. Written comments to supplement the hearing records may be submitted until October 26, 2009.
