Environmental Assessment for Proposed Radar Support Tower, Deal Island, Somerset County, Maryland (December 2012)

Main Content

The Maryland Natural Resources Police (NRP) is proposing to construct a self-supporting tower to hold/maintain a radar unit, a surveillance camera, and microwave antenna on state-owned land at Deal Island, Maryland in support of the Maritime Law Enforcement Information Network (MLEIN). The purpose of the project is to create a new link in the maritime surveillance capabilities of the MLEIN operated by NRP. The MLEIN provides real-time radar and video vessel tracking capabilities to federal, state and local law enforcement and will soon begin offering data to Fire Service personnel operating in search and rescue events. This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, the President’s Council on Environmental Quality regulations to implement NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] Part 1500 through 1508), and FEMA’s regulations implementing NEPA (44 CFR Part 10).
