PUBLIC NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS (USMC) FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT (FONSI) FOR AN ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT ADDRESSING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE 2020 INTEGRATED NATURAL RESOURCES MANAGEMENT PLAN (INRMP) FOR MARINE CORPS LOGISTICS (MCLB) BASE ALBANY, GEORGIA In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 (42 United States Code [USC] 4321 et seq.), Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] Parts 1500-1508), Department of the Navy (DoN) Regulations for implementing NEPA (32 CFR Part 775), Marine Corps Order (MCO) 5090.2, and the USMC NEPA Manual (Version 3.4), an Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) have been prepared for the Implementation of the 2020 INRMP for MCLB Albany, and an Environmental Impact Statement is not required. The Proposed Action is to revise the 2014 INRMP for MCLB Albany and implement the revision in compliance with the Sikes Act (16 U.S.C. 670 et seq.). The purpose of the INRMP is to implement an ecosystem-based conservation and management program that provides for integrated conservation, restoration, and enhancement of natural resources, consistent with the military mission, and provides for sustainable, multipurpose use of natural resources. The Proposed Action is needed to ensure the integration of military operations and natural resources management programs in a manner that supports the military mission, while protecting and enhancing natural resources in accordance with legal requirements and USMC policy. Based on the EA analysis and the coordination with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Georgia Field Office and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, the USMC finds that implementation of the Proposed Action would not significantly impact the quality of the human or natural environment. The Proposed Action would have direct, long-term, beneficial impacts and would cumulatively benefit natural resources; no significant impacts will occur. Interested parties may obtain a copy of the Final EA and FONSI by contacting the Base Public Affairs Office at (229) 639-5215 or (229) 639-7313.
