Coastal Storm Risk Management Feasibility Study
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District announces the availability of the Final Environmental Assessment (FEA) with Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for Phase II of the Port Monmouth Flood Risk Management Project, Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook Bay.
With the passage of the Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013 (Public Law 113-2), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has been given the authority and funding to complete ongoing coastal storm damage risk reduction projects and studies in the Northeast. As part of the planning and implementation process for the authorized Phase II portion of the Port Monmouth Flood Risk Management Project, the New York District has updated prior engineering and design efforts, physical surveys, and environmental compliance. The updated project impacts were evaluated in the FEA and FONSI.
