Abstract: The National Environmental Policy Act, the Council on Environmental Quality NEPA regulations, and the US Army Corps of Engineers’ (USACE) NEPA implementing regulations require that the USACE consider the potential environmental effects of a proposed action before making a decision on the proposed action. This Environmental Assessment (EA) includes the direct, indirect, and cumulative effects of dredging clean sand from the Waukegan Outer Harbor, Approach Channel and Advance Maintenance areas along with placing the dredged material in an expanded open water area, or near shore and/or on shore beach sites. This EA provides the USACE and other decision makers with the information needed to make an informed decision about the dredging and placement activities.
