SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

USACE published an NOI in the Federal Register on August 15, 2013 (78 FR 49735) to prepare a Draft EIS pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for the Dam Safety Study, Lewisville Dam, Elm Fork Trinity River, Denton County, TX. Public scoping meetings were held on August 20, 2013 and November 16, 2015 to solicit public input on the scope of analysis; significant issues to be evaluated in the Draft EIS; cooperating agencies; direct, indirect and cumulative impacts resulting from the proposed action; and Start Printed Page 45137proposed alternatives. Since that time, in the course of project planning and preliminary impact analysis, it no longer appears that impacts associated with project implementation would rise to a level necessitating an EIS, so the Fort Worth District has decided to complete NEPA compliance by preparing an Environmental Assessment instead. Therefore, the Fort Worth District is withdrawing the NOI to prepare a Draft EIS.
