CBP announces that a Final Environmental Assessment (EA) and associated Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the New Laredo Sector Headquarters, U.S. Border Patrol, Laredo Sector Texas have been prepared and are now available for public review. The Final EA documents a review of the potential environmental and socioeconomic effects associated with the construction, operation, and maintenance of the New Laredo Sector Headquarters.
The Draft EA was made available for a 30-day public review and comment period between 22 April 2022 and 22 May 2022. It was accessible through CBP.gov and by distribution to stakeholders and local public libraries. The notice of availability was published in the Laredo Morning Times on 22 April 2022.
Based on the Final EA, a determination was made that the proposed action will not significantly affect the human environmental and that further analysis is not required. Therefore, a FONSI was issued, and an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is not required. For further information, contact Mr. John Petrilla by email at BPAMNEPA@cbp.dhs.gov.
