Abstract: This report is an integrated Final General Reevaluation Report (GRR) and Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS). This report updates the 1998 EIS prepared for the Jacksonville Harbor Navigation Study (Record of Decision signed in 2001) as well as the Jacksonville Harbor Navigation Study-General Reevaluation Report completed in 2002. The report and SEIS describe the formulation and evaluation of plans considered to address navigation needs of Jacksonville Harbor; economic and environmental conditions and potential effects of the alternative plans; environmental mitigation; and project costs and implementation information. The purpose of this study is to evaluate Federal interest in alternative plans (including the no-action plan) for reducing transportation costs at Jacksonville Harbor and the effects of the alternatives on the natural system and human environment, including economic development effects. The study area generally encompasses the St. Johns River from its mouth at the Atlantic Ocean near Mayport, Florida to River Mile 20 in Jacksonville, Florida. The non-federal sponsor is the Jacksonville Port Authority. Port facilities and users within the study area include container and bulk shipping facilities at Blount Island, Dames Point, Talleyrand and several private terminal facilities including oil terminals and naval facilities. There is an opportunity to improve navigation at Jacksonville Harbor by reducing transportation costs for larger ships forecast to call at Jacksonville Harbor.
