SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On June 13, 2008 (73 FR 33807), the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) in partnership with the Port of West Sacramento (Port) announced its intent to prepare a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement/Subsequent Environmental Impact Report (DSEIS/R) in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) to evaluate the action of resuming construction of navigational improvements to the SRDWSC. On February 25, 2011 (76 FR 10572), USACE and the Port announced the availability of the DSEIS/R. The DSEIS/R evaluated the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed Federal action and reasonable alternatives. The purpose of the project was to resume deepening of the SRDWSC to its congressionally authorized depth to realize economic benefits resulting from transportation cost savings associated with moving goods to and from the Port. USACE and the Port might resume the NEPA process in the future should economic demand for the project improve.
