U.S. Customs and Border Protection announces that a Final Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Proposed Construction, Operation, and Maintenance of a New U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) Brown Field Border Patrol Station (BPS) 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 the proposed construction, operation, and maintenance activities in Dulzura, CA.
The Draft EA was made available for a 30-day public review and comment period between October 4, 2018 and November 5, 2018 on CBP.gov. The notice of availability for the draft was published in the San Diego Union Tribune and Alpine Sun on October 4, 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.
