Description. Interested parties are hereby notified that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Fort Worth District, is currently seeking comments on an Environmental Assessment (EA) and draft Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the potential environmental consequences resulting from approving, pursuant to 33 U.S.C. 408 (Section 408), proposed modifications to the Dallas Floodway System in the City of Dallas, Dallas County, Texas. The City of Dallas, Texas is the proponent for this EA.

Statutory Authority. This notice is being issued to all interested parties in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), as amended, the Council on Environmental Quality Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) (40 CFR parts 1500-1508), and USACE Engineering Regulation 200-2-2. Under the terms of Section 408, any proposed modification to an existing USACE project, whether Federally or locally maintained, that goes beyond those modifications required for normal operations and maintenance requires a determination by the USACE that the proposed alteration, permanent occupation, or use of a federal project would not be injurious to the public interest and would not impair the usefulness of the existing project.
