Environmental impacts associated with the modification of the WRP Easements are minimal. A total of 20.1 acres of forested wetlands impacted by the pipeline will be restored, 1.2 acres will be subordinated, and 11.2 additional wetland acres will be mitigated by incorporation into a future WRP easement. 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. The Notice of a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) has been forwarded to the Environmental Protection Agency. 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 Billy Moore, Assistant State Conservationist, Natural Resources Conservation Service, 3737 Government Street, Alexandria, Louisiana 71302, telephone (318) 473-7756.
