Main Content

St. Charles Parish has been awarded, under a Port Security Grant Program (PSGP), authorization to construct a two hundred fifty (250) foot new communications tower, with a lightning rod, any antennae, or other devices mounted to the structure resulting in a maximum height of two hundred seventy-five (275) feet.  This communications tower will enhance the interoperable communications among all first responder disciplines during times of natural or man-made disasters. This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared according to the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as applied to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) at 44 CFR Part 10.  This section of the federal code requires that FEMA take into account environmental considerations when authorizing or approving actions and pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act. The purpose of this EA is to analyze the potential environmental impacts of the proposed construction of a communications tower facility. FEMA will use the findings in this EA to determine whether to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) or a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI).
