Final Environmental Impact Statement Available

The US Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) prepared an environmental impact statement (EIS) to document the benefits and impacts of the proposed SFC project and other alternatives in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The comment period on the draft EIS was from May 29, 2015, to July 13, 2015.

The Final EIS has been completed and includes responses to comments collected during the Draft EIS comment period. The Final EIS is available at www.SouthernFlowEIS.org, at locations in both Portland and Tillamook, or by requesting a CD from FEMA.  A full list of locations where a hard copy may be reviewed is available at www.SouthernFlowEIS.org.

FEMA will not take action on the Tillamook SFC project until the Record of Decision (ROD) is published.  The ROD will not be published until after November 30, 2015.
