Abstract:

The proposed action evaluated in this Environmental Assessment EA is to install a new electrical system in the Joe English Pond Campground. The project includes installation of approximately 1,800 feet of buried conduit, installation of a new transformer with pad, demolition of existing transformer pad, and installation of power pedestals for existing Recreational Vehicles RV campsites and campground buildings. This EA evaluated the potential impacts to air quality, noise levels, topography, geology, soils, water resources, ecological resources, cultural resources, land use, recreation, visual resources, socioeconomics, and health and safety. On the basis of this assessment, it was determined that the proposed action would result in only minor to negligible localized, short-term, or temporary impacts to the environment as compared to the no-action alternative. The campground electrical upgrade would result in a negligible to minor incremental addition to impacts that have occurred from other activities.
