Environmental Assessment, Emergency Boat Ramp Construction, Burlington Bridge Commission, Palmyra, Burlington County, NJ, (August 2012)

Main Content

The Burlington Bridge Commission has applied for federal funding from DHS-FEMA’s Port Security Grant Program to construct a new emergency boat ramp on the Delaware River, adjacent to the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge in Palmyra, NJ. The proposed port security enhancement would minimize security vulnerabilities for bridges within the Commission’s responsibility by creating an emergency access ramp to the Delaware River, and would benefit public safety by providing an emergency access point to the river for local and regional law enforcement and emergency response teams. FEMA is required to evaluate the potential environmental impacts of its proposed actions, and alternatives to proposed actions, in order to make an informed decision in defining a proposed project for implementation. This Environmental Assessment (EA) serves as documentation of FEMA’s analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the proposed emergency boat ramp construction project, including analysis of project alternatives, and identification of impact minimization measures.  The document serves as written communication of the environmental evaluation for public and interested party comment.  Public involvement is a component of NEPA to inform an agency’s determination of whether to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) or issue a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI).
