U.S. Customs and Border Protection announces that a Final Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Alamo River Control Project and associated Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) 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 vegetation control efforts to preserve line of sight for U.S. Border Patrol agents and to reduce hiding opportunities within the vicinity of the Alamo River.
The Draft EA was made available for a 30-day public review and comment period between November 1, 2018 and December 1, 2018 on CBP.gov. The notice of availability for the draft was published in the Imperial Valley Press and Imperial Valley News on November 1, 2018.
Based on the Final EA, a determination was made that the proposed action will not significantly affect the human environment and that further analysis is not required. Therefore, a FONSI was issued, and an Environmental Impact Statement is not required.
