The Coast Guard, as lead agency, announced in the Federal Register the availability of the final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act for the Polar Security Cutter Program’s design, build, and operation of up to six polar security cutters.
The Coast Guard will not issue a final decision on the proposal for a minimum of 30 days after the date on which the Environmental Protection Agency publishes its Notice of Availability of the final EIS in the Federal Register.
Copies of the final EIS have been sent to affected Federal, State, and local governments; public libraries in the project area; and interested parties that previously requested a copy. The final EIS and other supporting documents will be published at https://www.regulations.gov/ under docket number USCG-2018-0193 and also on the Coast Guard’s acquisition website.
