Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mississippi Valley Division, New Orleans District, has prepared this supplement environmental assessment to present changes to the design of some of the projects in the recommended mitigation plan described in the Programmatic Individual Environmental Report 36, Supplement 1 (SIER 1) titled “Bayou Sauvage, Turtle Bayou and New Zydeco Ridge Restoration Projects, Saint Tammany and Orleans Parishes, LA”. The Decision Record for SIER 1 was approved by the CEMVN Commander on October 20, 2015. This supplemental EA evaluates the potential impacts associated with implementation of the proposed changes to the Bayou Sauvage Flood Side Brackish Marsh and New Zydeco Ridge restoration projects mitigating Lake Pontchartrain and Vicinity Hurricane Storm Damage Risk Reduction System impacts to National Wildlife Refuge lands and portions of the general impacts that did not occur on NWR lands. Both the PIER 36 and PIER 36, SIER 1 documents and their decision records are hereby incorporated by reference. This supplemental EA has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Council on Environmental Quality’s Regulations as reflected in the USACE Engineering Regulation ER 200-2-2. This EA provides sufficient information on the potential adverse and beneficial environmental effects to allow the District Commander to make an informed decision on the appropriateness of an Environmental Impact Statement or a Finding of No Significant Impact.
