ACTION:

Notice of availability.

SUMMARY:

This notice of availability announces the public release of the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Proposed Destination Broadwater Resort, Biloxi, Mississippi. On August 18, 1998, President Casinos, LLC submitted a Joint Permit Application and Notification to the US Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality, Office of Pollution Control and the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources for the Destination Broadwater project. The proposed action involves the redevelopment and construction of a large-scale casino destination resort at the existing Broadwater Resort and President Casino adjacent to US Highway 90 in Biloxi, Harrison County, Mississippi. Based on a review of the level of impacts associated with the proposed action, the Mobile District published a Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement on May 11, 1999. The Draft EIS has been developed by the Corps of Engineers (lead agency) and eight cooperating Federal and state agencies. The Draft EIS provides a comprehensive environmental analysis to aid in the decision-making process to deny or approve the Department of the Army permit for the proposed Destination Broadwater Project.
