Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineering (USACE), Norfolk District and the City of Norfolk proposes to construct structural, non-structural, and Natural and Nature-Based Features to manage coastal storm risk in the City of Norfolk, Virginia. Without a plan to promote resiliency and reduce the risks of coastal storm damage, the City will continue to be vulnerable to coastal storm damage caused by coastal storms like nor’easters, tropical storms and hurricanes, as well as climate change and rising sea levels. The USACE has prepared an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to evaluate potential impacts of the proposed action in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, implementing regulations of the NEPA, 40 Code of Federal Regulations 1500-1508, and other applicable state and federal laws, and USACE policies. Four alternatives, including the No Action/Future Without Project Alternative, were evaluated to determine the potential environmental, cultural, and socioeconomic impacts resulting from the proposed action. Resource areas evaluated in the EIS include land use and land cover, water resources, ecological resources, floodplains, geology and soils, air quality, noise, recreation, transportation, utilities, socioeconomics, aesthetics and visual resources, and cultural resources. Potential impacts to floodplains and wetlands are described in the EIS.
