Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the San Diego County Shoreline Feasibility Study, Oceanside, San Diego County, CA
Document Number: 2016-05171
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-03-09
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers
The Los Angeles District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will prepare a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) to support the San Diego County Shoreline Feasibility Study, Oceanside, San Diego County California. The Study Area extends approximately 15 miles along the coast, from about 9 miles north of the Oceanside Harbor north breakwater to the Agua Hedionda Lagoon north jetty, within the cities of Oceanside and Carlsbad in northwest San Diego County. The project environment includes predominantly beach, coastal strand, and/ or marine inter-tidal/littoral/pelagic zones. The predominant problem that threatens the shoreline is continual beach erosion averaging over 6 feet per year in some areas, despite the considerable amount of beach fill deposited on an annual basis. Causes for this erosion has been attributed to sediment impoundment due to harbor construction, dam construction, storm damage, and river sand mining. The loss of beach width and increased exposure of property has resulted in increased coastal damage, safety issues, and loss of recreation opportunities. This feasibility study will focus on addressing the problems and needs caused by beach erosion. The DEIS will analyze the potential impacts (beneficial and adverse) on the environment for the range of alternatives, including the recommended plan. The Los Angeles District and the City of Oceanside will cooperate in conducting this Feasibility Study. The Los Angeles District intends to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to support a feasibility study with the city of Oceanside, California, for shoreline protection. The purpose of the feasibility study is to mitigate for impacts from construction of the Camp Pendleton Harbor and reduce coastal storm damages in the city of Oceanside. The EIS will analyze potential impacts of the recommended plan and a range of alternatives. Alternatives will include both structural and non-structural measures.

Document Number: 2016-04758
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-03-04
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers
In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) San Francisco District, the Port of Stockton, and the Contra Costa County Water Agency are preparing an Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) to evaluate the efficiency of the movement of goods along the existing deep-draft navigation route extending from the San Francisco Bay to the Port of Stockton. This Notice of Intent (NOI) represents a supplemental notice to the March 12, 2008, NOI released for the San Francisco Bay to Stockton Navigation Improvement Study. This supplemental NOI also provides an update to the description of the study and discusses current phasing of the project. Because of the amount of time that has passed since 2008, this supplemental NOI is being released to notify the public that work will begin on an EIS/EIR, which is anticipated to be issued for public review in 2016. This NOI also re-opens the public scoping period. The 2008 NOI discussed the project as a single navigation improvement study/project, proposing to deepen the John F. Baldwin channel from the West Richmond Channel to New York Slough Channel to a maximum depth of -45 feet mean lower low water (MLLW) and the Stockton Deep Water Ship Channel to a maximum depth of -40 feet MLLW. The forthcoming EIS/EIR proposes to reevaluate the unconstructed portions of the original project described in the 1965 Chief of Engineers Report (House Document 89-208) and authorized by the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1965 (Public Law 89-298), which will be referred to in the EIS/EIR as Phase I (or the proposed project). Additional study authority exists for the entire channel from San Francisco Bay to Stockton, provided by the 2014 United States Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works Committee Resolution and specifying ``navigation, ecosystem restoration, flood risk reduction, and other water related resource purposes.'' This additional study authority will be discussed programmatically in the EIS/EIR. The study area for the overall project consists of two reaches: The Western Reach and Eastern Reach. The Western Reach extends from Central San Francisco Bay to Avon and includes the West Richmond Channel, Pinole Shoal Channel, and Bulls Head Reach portion of the Suisun Bay Channel. The Eastern Reach extends from Avon to the Port of Stockton and includes the remaining portions of the Suisun Bay Channel (east of Avon), New York Slough Channel, and the Stockton Deep Water Ship Channel. The Western Reach is authorized to a depth of -45 feet mean lower low water (MLLW), but is currently maintained to -35 feet MLLW. Additional deepening of the Eastern Reach requires separate Congressional authorization for construction. The forthcoming EIS/EIR for which this NOI is prepared proposes to separate the overall project into two separate phases (Phase I and Phase II) under a navigation improvement programmatic analysis. Under the programmatic analysis, two reaches and two phases are identified. Phase I of the study is a single purpose navigation improvement project to evaluate incremental deepening to a maximum depth of -40 feet MLLW in the Western Reach. Phase II is a subsequent multipurpose navigation and ecosystem restoration study that would evaluate deepening the Eastern Reach to a maximum depth of -40 feet MLLW. Phase II will also revisit if further deepening of Western Reach up to its authorized depth of -45 feet MLLW is warranted. The Eastern Reach is maintained at its authorized depth of -35 feet MLLW, and any additional deepening in this reach will require a new project authorization through a subsequent Water Resources Development Act (WRDA). The EIS/EIR will include both a project-level feasibility analysis for implementation of Phase I and a programmatic-level analysis for Phase II. Analysis of Phase II will be conducted using only existing information (i.e., additional studies or data collection will not be conducted). Additional project-level feasibility analysis of Phase II will require execution of a separate Feasibility Cost Sharing Agreement with the local sponsor and pending receipt of federal study funds.

Intent To Prepare a Draft Beaver Lake Master Plan and Shoreline Management Plan and Environmental Assessment To Investigate Potential Significant Impacts, Either Positive or Negative, to Beaver Lake's Authorized Purposes of Flood Risk Management, Hydropower, Water Supply, Recreation, and Fish and Wildlife
Document Number: 2016-04736
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-03-03
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers
The Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) is being prepared pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations (40 CFR, 1500-1517), and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) implementing regulation, Policy and Procedures for Implementing NEPA, Engineer Regulation (ER) 200-2-2 (1988). The study is being conducted in accordance with the requirements of 36 CFR 327.30, dated July 27, 1990 and ER 1130-2-406, dated October 31, 1990. The EA will evaluate potential impacts (beneficial and adverse) to socioeconomic conditions, cultural and ecological resources, recreation, aesthetics, infrastructure, lake water quality, terrestrial and aquatic fish and wildlife habitats, federally-listed threatened and endangered species, and cumulative impacts associated with past, current, and reasonably foreseeable future actions at Beaver Lake. Following the public scoping period and after consideration of all comments received during scoping, USACE will prepare a Draft EA. The Draft EA will be made available for public review and comment. Based on the EA analysis, USACE will either issue a Finding of No Significant Impact or announce its intent to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS). If USACE determines that an EIS is needed, either during preparation of the EA or after completing the EA, USACE will issue in the Federal Register a Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an EIS. In that case, the current scoping process would serve as the scoping process that normally would follow an NOI to prepare an EIS. USACE would not solicit additional scoping comments but would consider any comments on the scope of the EA received during this scoping process in preparing the EIS.
