The environmental assessment of the federally assisted action indicates that the project will not cause significant local, regional, or national impacts on the environment. As a result of these findings, Donald W. Gohmert, State Conservationist, has determined that the preparation and review of an Environmental Impact Statement is not needed for this project.
This project proposes to reduce the erosion rates of the shoreline at Cheniere Au Tigre by constructing a series of segmented, rock breakwaters. This project will provide protection to approximately 75 acres of brackish marsh, upland shrub/scrub, and unpland forest against loss.
The notice of a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) has been forwarded to the Environmental Protection Agency and to various federal, state, and local agencies and interested parties. A limited number of copies of the FONSI are available to fill single copy requests at the above address. Basic data developed during the environmental assessment are on file and may be reviewed by contacting Donald W. Gohmert.
No administrative action on implementation of the proposal will be taken until 30 days after the date of this publication in the Federal Register.Start Signature
