Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District (as the lead agency) and the Federal Highway Administration and Fish and Wildlife Service (as cooperating agencies) intend to prepare a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) to assess the likely social, economic and environmental effects of the proposed construction of a mixed use industrial, commercial and residential development with the potential to impact Waters of the United States near Hardeeville in Jasper County, South Carolina. Associated with this development will be the possible construction of a new interchange on I-95, in the vicinity of the mile marker 3 in South Carolina. The DEIS will assess potential effects of a range of alternatives.
Intent To Prepare a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (DSEIS) for the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation (AGDC)'s Proposed Alaska Stand Alone Pipeline (ASAP) Utility-Grade Natural Gas Transportation Pipeline
Document Number: 2014-18266
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-01
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers
The Alaska District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) intends to prepare a DSEIS to identify and analyze the potential impacts associated with the construction of the proposed ASAP utility grade natural gas transportation pipeline. The Corps is the lead federal agency and currently the National Park Service (NPS), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), U.S. Department of Transportation, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the State of Alaska Department of Natural Resources State Pipeline Coordinator's Office (SPCO) are participating as cooperating agencies in the DSEIS development process. The Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) will be used as a basis for the Corps permit decision and to ensure compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The Corps will be evaluating a permit application for work under Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act, Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, and Section 103 of the Marine Protection Research and Sanctuaries Act of 1972. Because ASAP would require decisions and actions by other federal agencies (such as right- of-way grants and other permits), this DSEIS will also fulfill the NEPA requirements for those cooperating federal agencies.
