CG-47 Office of Environmental Management: Environmental Planning and Historic Preservation

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. Interested parties can view recent draft and final NEPA documents below. Contact information for each project are included in each posting.

OVERSEAS ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING FOR THE AT-SEA OPERATION OF UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS, MARCH 2018

The proposed action is for the United States Coast Guard (USCG) to operate an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) from any vessel of the National Security Cutter (NSC) fleet in the global maritime environment. The UAS would provide the NSC with persistent, tactical airborne intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities. Operations would occur in the western North Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, eastern North Pacific, eastern Pacific, Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea, and Chukchi Sea. The UAS would operate year-round from 12 nautical miles off the coast of the United States into the global commons.
