Abstract : The purpose of this Reformulation Phase 1 GDM is to reaffirm the viability of the 1969 plan in light of the changes that have occurred at the site since the project was authorized for construction, to develop a modified plan, or to recommend an entirely different plan (including 'no action'), if a different plan more nearly satisfies the criteria of engineering, environmental, economic, social, financial, and political feasibility. Reformulation is necessary because of the probable adverse environmental impact to the existing wetland area in the location where the authorized project was to be constructed. Methods to minimize the environmental impacts will be investigated and will include relocating the habor to avoid or reduce the amount of wetland disturbed, enhancement of the existing wetland area not affected by the harbor and creation of additional wetlands. If a viable plan is developed for the Geneva-on-the-Lake Small Boat Harbor project, an Environmental Impact Statement that addresses the existing physical condition at Geneva State Park and conforms with current policy and legislation, will be prepared. The environmental Impact Statement will, among other things, assess the impacts of the recommended plan on the existing wetland area.
