Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), New York District (the District) prepared a Limited Reevaluation Report (LRR) to address the consolidation of separately authorized navigation improvement projects (Predecessor Projects) with the New York and New Jersey Harbor Navigation Project (Recommended Plan). The action that is the subject of this Environmental Assessment (EA) is the proposed consolidated implementation of the Harbor Deepening Project (HDP) with the Predecessor Projects as recommended in the LRR. The purpose and need of the HDP is to allow access by modern marine cargo vessels to the cargo-handling facilities of the Port of New York and New Jersey (the Port) in an efficient, safe and environmentally sound manner. The environmental impacts of each individual predecessor project and the HDP were documented in various National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and feasibility documents prepared for each of the authorized navigation projects the most recent being the New York and New Jersey Harbor Navigation Study Feasibility Report and its accompanying Final Environmental Impact Statement – December 1999 (the Feasibility Report). The Recommended Plan in the Feasibility Report, as modified during the Pre-Construction Engineering and Design (PED) phase, is considered the “Without Project Condition” for this EA, that is individual implementation of each of the projects without consolidation. This EA provides analysis of the potential environmental effects specific to (1) new information and modifications to the Recommended Plan that have occurred since the 1999 release of the Feasibility Report and (2) consolidated implementation.
