Availability of Documents

Individuals wishing to receive copies of the Environmental Assessment for the Solar Roof Project should immediately contact the USGS S.O. Conte Anadromous Fish Research Center, One Migratory Way, P.O. Box 796, Turners Falls, MA 01376-0796. Copies of the EA are also available for public inspection during regular business hours at the USGS S.O. Conte Anadromous Center (see same address above).

Background

The objective of the S.O. Conte Research Center is to provide Federal leadership in the scientific based management of national and international Atlantic Coast anadromous fish resources by conducting research programs of regional importance to provide information for restoration and rational management of northeast and mid-west United States anadromous fish. The proposed action is to replace two temporary canvas structures that are energy inefficient and do not comply with health and safety codes, with a new permanent 3,000-square-foot building. The new building would provide appropriate housing for fishery species, equipment and scientific research. Public input included requests for input and information early in the project from agencies with potential interest of jurisdiction, and from local organizations with a potential interest in the proposed project. In addition, a public meeting was held December 9, 2009 at the Conte facility. No issues or concerns were raised during that public meeting.
