Abstract: There are two decisions to be made within this EA. The first decision is whether to complete truck haul renourishment of Broward County SPP Segment III. The second decision is to determine whether the truck haul and placement of sand above MHW on Segment III of Broward County SPP will result in significant effects on the human environment. The need for mitigation measures or best management practices (BMPs) to reduce any potentially adverse effects, particularly in regard to associated activities, will be determined based upon the analysis contained within this EA. If no significant impacts are identified during the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process, the Corps will sign the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and move forward with the Preferred Alternative. If significant impacts are identified, the Corps may choose to implement mitigation measures to reduce the impacts to a lower-than-significant threshold and sign a mitigated FONSI, prepare a Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), or not implement the Preferred Alternative. This document concludes that the project, as described in Alternative 1, the Preferred Alternative, is in the public interest and would not significantly affect the quality of the human environment. Alternative 1, the Preferred Alternative, will not require compensatory mitigation; however, implementation of Alternative 2 would require compensatory mitigation. (See Chapter 4 for detailed discussion on the effects of the Preferred Alternative.) The Corps and its contractors commit to avoiding and minimizing adverse effects during construction activities. Environmental commitments, as discussed in Chapter 6, will be included in the contract specifications.
