Abstract: The responsible lead agency is the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The SEIS II is a joint effort of the USACE Memphis, Vicksburg, and New Orleans Districts. Cooperating agencies include the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the Osage Nation. The MR&T Project, authorized by the Flood Control Act of 1928, as amended, is designed to reduce flood risk in the Mississippi River alluvial valley between Cape Girardeau, Missouri and the Head of Passes, Louisiana. The scope of this SEIS2 is limited to updating the environmental analysis of the remaining authorized work on the MRL feature of the MR&T project. Through evaluation of information and data obtained from levee inspections, seepage analyses, research, studies, and engineering assessments, the USACE Districts have collectively identified a total of 143 additional Work Items along various reaches of the MRL feature of the MR&T project that are in need of remedial measures necessary to control seepage and/or raise and stabilize deficient sections of the existing levees and floodwalls to protect the structural integrity and stability of the MRL system. The 143 Work Items constitute the proposed action for this SEIS II and are located across portions of seven states: Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana. This document is intended to supplement and, as necessary, augment the 1976 EIS and 1998 SEIS using the primary MR&T goals of: (1) providing flood protection from the project design flood (PDF); and (2) developing an environmentally sustainable project.
