Abstract: This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations, Environmental Impact Analysis Process, as promulgated in Title 32 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 989, and Department of Defense (DoD) Directive 6050. The EA evaluates the potential environmental consequences associated with the proposal to obtain a negotiated agreement with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) to dredge within the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Canaveral Shoals (CS II), and pump, as well as truck from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS) upland beach borrow area, beach compatible sand to restore and stabilize the coastal shoreline at Patrick Air Force Base (PAFB), Florida. Should borrow sand also be necessary within Canaveral Shoals I (CS I), the 45 SW would continue to coordinate with the Federal Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) as this borrow area falls under Florida jurisdiction being located less than three nautical miles offshore (an easement has been obtained). Chapter 1.0 of this EA describes the background and the purpose of and need for the Proposed Action. A description of the Proposed Action and Alternatives, including the No Action Alternative, is provided in Chapter 2.0. Chapter 3.0 describes the existing conditions of specified environmental resources that could be affected by implementation of the Proposed Action and alternatives. Chapter 4.0 addresses how those resources might be affected by implementation of the Proposed Action and alternatives.
