Abstract: The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 and the Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of the NEPA require the federal government to use all practicable means to create and maintain conditions under which man and nature can exist in productive harmony. The NEPA procedures insure that environmental information is available to the public before decisions are made and before actions are taken. Additionally, NEPA requires an early and open process for determining the scope of issues to be addressed and for identifying the significant issues related to a proposed action. This process is referred to as scoping. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mississippi Valley Division, New Orleans District published a Notice of Intent to prepare a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for the Mississippi River Ship Channel, Gulf to Baton Rouge, Louisiana Project in the Federal Register (volume 80, number 92, pp 27296-27298) on May 13, 2015. A public scoping meeting was held in Belle Chasse, LA on May 26, 2015, and in New Orleans, LA on May 28, 2015, and Baton Rouge, LA on May 28, 2015. NEPA scoping meeting announcements were advertised in the Times Picayune and New Orleans Advocate several days prior to the meetings. A mailing list was compiled utilizing an internal CEMVN mailing database and individual letters were mailed to Federal, State and local agencies, Parish and city council members and other interested parties and stakeholders. A total of 80 individuals signed the attendance records positioned at the main entrance of the meeting hall. These included, but were not limited to, private citizens, industry stakeholders and non-governmental organizations.
