Abstract:

This finding and the analysis upon which it is based was prepared pursuant to the Presidents Council on Environmental Quality regulations for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act as put into effect by 40 Code of Federal Regulations CFR 1500-1508 and the U.S. Air Force Environmental Impact Analysis Process as effected by 32 CFR Part 989. The Department of the Air Force has conducted an Environmental Assessment EA of the probable environmental consequences for the Repair and Dredging of Bear Creek Marina at Eglin Air Force Base AFB. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to restore utility and navigability to the marina which was affected by the Lower Memorial Lake levee failure and Hurricane Ivan in 2004. The levee failure introduced sediment into the marina altering the bottom contours presenting a hazard to navigation. The dredging and repairs are needed to allow recreational users access to and from the marina. The reduced utility of the marina has resulted in a loss of revenue to Eglin Outdoor Recreation and loss of service to tenants currently renting boat slips.
