The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are preparing four Environmental Assessments (EAs) to identify and assess the potential environmental impacts associated with proposed maintenance and repair of tactical infrastructure along the U.S./Mexico international border. Separate EAs will be prepared for Tactical Infrastructure Maintenance and Repair (TIMR) in California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. The Tactical Infrastructure (TI) consists of fences and gates, roads and bridges/crossovers, drainage structures and grates, observation zones, boat ramps, lighting and ancillary power systems, and Remote Video Surveillance System components. CBP is the decision-making agency for the Proposed Action.
The EAs are being prepared pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq., (NEPA); the Clean Air Act of 1970, as amended; the Clean Water Act of 1977, as amended; the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966; the Archaeological Resource Protection Act of 1979; various Executive Orders (EOs), and applicable laws and regulations.
