The finding of no significant impact (FONSI) and the environmental assessment (EA) constitute the record of the environmental impact analysis and decision-making process for the project to repair and stabilize the York River shoreline to protect the Colonial Parkway. The NPS will implement the preferred alternative, which includes repairing the existing means of shoreline defense and installing new structures within park property only, commencing near the confluence of Felgates Creek and the York River and continuing downstream to the boundary with the U.S. Coast Guard Training Center Yorktown. Actions needed to achieve these goals include the rehabilitation or installation of a combination of shoreline treatments, including rock revetments, rock spurs, continuous and gap sills, pocket beaches, and shore-attached breakwaters. The project will be implemented in phases as funding becomes available.

These documents record (1) a FONSI as required by the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, and (2) a determination of no impairment as required by the NPS Organic Act of 1916 (see Attachment A). The signed Statement of Findings: Wetland and Floodplains for phase 1 of the project as required by Executive Order 11990, Protection of Wetlands and Executive Order 11988, Floodplain Management is also available.
