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.

Final Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact for the Waterfront Demolition Projects at Base Kodiak

By Shannon & Wilson CEU Juneau

PRINT  |  E-MAIL

The Coast Guard proposes to demolish in-water facilities at two sites on Base Kodiak, Alaska:

  • Marginal Wharf at the southwestern tip of the Nyman Peninsula in Inner Womens Bay, and
  • A seawater intake structure and concrete pile cap near the northeastern end of the Nyman Peninsula in Inner Womens Bay.

These existing facilities are derelict and obsolete, and present hazards to the natural environment, navigation, and public health and safety.  None of the facilities satisfy current or future planned USCG mission requirements.  No unmitigable significant impacts were identified for any of the alternatives in the EA.  Best management practices would be included as standard provisions of Coast Guard contracts and conservation measures developed during the federal permitting and approval processes would be employed, including those resulting from the completed Endangered Species Act consultation.  The preferred alternative will result in the loss of Marginal Wharf, a contributing resource to the Kodiak Naval Operating Base National Historic Landmark and therefore listed in the National Register of Historic Places.  Removal of the Marginal Wharf was determined an adverse effect and will be mitigated consistent with the memorandum of agreement currently under development with the National Park Service and the Alaska Office of History and Archaeology.
