Department of the Army, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, DOD.
The Jacksonville District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) hereby cancels its Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for Reach 1A on the Herbert Hoover Dike (HHD) Major Rehabilitation Project, as published in the Federal Register, March 9, 2009 (74 FR 10038).
The USACE issued a Notice of Availability (NOA) for the Draft SEIS on June 25, 2010 (75 FR 36386). A public meeting was held in Canal Point on July 22, 2010 to present the Draft SEIS.
The cancellation of the subject SEIS is necessitated due to a change in scope of the rehabilitation project. The initial focus of the HHD Major Rehabilitation Report (MRR) from 2000 divided the 143 miles dike into eight Reaches with the initial focus on Reach 1. This Reach by Reach approach is being replaced with a system-wide risk reduction approach as required for safety modifications to dams.
