dc.description.abstractThe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Fort Worth District, as lead federal agency, has prepared this Regional Environmental Impact Statement (REIS) to analyze potential impacts within defined geographic regions in Texas that may be affected by future USACE Fort Worth District permit decisions for future surface coal and lignite mine expansions or satellite mines within the District’s area of responsibility. The REIS has been prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 1500-1508), and the USACE Procedures for Implementing NEPA (33 CFR 230). The Office of Surface Mining, Reclamation, and Enforcement (OSMRE); Railroad Commission of Texas (RCT); Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD); U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA); and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) are serving as cooperating agencies. The REIS considers six study areas along the coal-bearing formations in Texas that run from southwest Texas to northeast Texas (see Figure ES-1). The study areas encompass locations within the coal/lignite belt in Texas that were determined to be within reasonable proximity to existing surface coal and lignite mines with potential for future expansion.en_US
