Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army
The Department of the Army announces its intent to conduct public scoping under the National Environmental Policy Act to gather information to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) related to the critically-needed modernization and repairs of Piers 2 and 3, Military Ocean Terminal Concord (MOTCO) due to structural decay caused by severe deterioration, wide-spread marine borer damage, and fungal decay. Piers 2 and 3 are used to transport military supplies in the Pacific region. There may be significant impacts to threatened and endangered species. The following other resource areas may be impacted: water quality, noise, terrestrial and marine species, and traffic. For example, the proposed action will replace a large number of piles; this work will likely result in water quality issues and an increase in noise. The Department of the Army will use the analysis in the EIS to determine whether and how to implement the proposed action.
