dc.descriptionEnvironmental Assessment-
dc.description.abstractAt the request of the Department of Natural and Environmental Resources, Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) conducted a study along a portion of the shoreline of Loíza. The shoreline located in the study area is approximately 1,050 feet in length. The Loíza shoreline is severely eroded; chronic erosion has already impacted and continues to threaten public infrastructure and facilities, including a Head Start public school, community center, and a public roadway. An integrated Feasibility Report and Environmental Assessment (IFR/EA) was prepared and approved by South Atlantic Division on May 25, 2018. Subsequently the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was signed by the District Engineer on June 22, 2018. The recommended plan (see figure 1 below) includes rubble mound stone revetment across approximately 1,050 feet of severely eroded shoreline constructed entirely above mean high water (MHW). However, shoreline erosion has continued since approval of the project to the point where construction must now occur below MHW. This draft supplemental Environmental Assessment (EA) evaluates only those effects resulting from construction partially below MHW which accounts for the continued erosion at the project site since approval. All other discussions and conclusions contained in the 2018 IFR/EA are hereby incorporated by reference into this document. This draft supplemental EA will complete the required analysis under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).en_US
