Department of the Army (DA) authorization is required pursuant to Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 and Section 404 of the Clean Water Act. The Corps has determined the proposed project may have significant individual and/or cumulative impacts on the human environment. The Corps is working in collaboration with the Cowlitz County Building and Planning Department (County) and the Washington State Department of Ecology (WDOE), to prepare separate federal and state Environmental Impact Statements (EISs) in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, and the Washington State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA). The Corps will serve as the lead federal agency for purposes of preparing a NEPA EIS, while the County and WDOE will serve as lead agencies for purposes of preparing a SEPA EIS. This Notice of Intent amends the notice published in the Federal Register on August 14, 2013 (78 FR 49484) by providing additional and updated information on a separate but synchronized environmental review and public scoping process.
