The USACE, New York District, in partnership with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, has announced the release of the Draft Feasibility Report for the North Shore of Long Island, Asharoken, Suffolk County, NY, Coastal Storm Risk Management Feasibility Study and Environmental Assessment.

With passage of the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013 (PL 113-2), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has the authority and funding to complete ongoing coastal storm damage risk management projects and studies in the Northeast, including Asharoken.

This Draft Environmental Assessment was prepared to evaluate the significance of potential environmental impacts of the proposed action and determine if the proposed project warrants the preparation of an environmental impact statement.
