The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires all Federal agencies to consider the impacts of proposed actions on the human environment and involve the public in the NEPA process. The Environmental Planning and Historic Preservation (EPHP) Team publishes all Environmental Impact Statements and Environmental Assessments of regional or national significance for public notice and comment.

FINAL PROGRAMMATIC ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT FOR POLAR SECURITY CUTTER ACQUISITION PROGRAM, MARCH 2019

The Coast Guard identified its need to address the current mission demand and the long term projected increase in Coast Guard mission demand in polar regions. The current polar icebreaker fleet consists of two heavy and one medium icebreaker; however, the Coast Guard’s heavy icebreakers have both exceeded their designed 30year service life. The Proposed Action would allow the Coast Guard to recapitalize its polar icebreaker fleet to meet its mission requirements and ensure continued access to both polar regions and support the United States’ economic, commercial, maritime and national security needs.
