San Juan Metro Area Study on the Table

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District will host a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) scoping meeting for the San Juan Metro Area Coastal Storm Damage Reduction Study.

The meeting is set for Thursday, November 8 at the Colegio de Ingenieros y Agrimensores de Puerto Rico, Calle Antolin Nin Martinez 500 San Juan, Puerto Rico.

According to the Corps, the purpose of the scoping meeting is to present and discuss the production of a NEPA document for the feasibility study, and to assess the effects of potential alternatives to reduce coastal storm damages to infrastructure along the coastline of the San Juan Metro Area extending from El Morro, San Juan Municipality to Boca De Cangrejos, Carolina Municipality, San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The scoping meeting will aid in determining the scope of the NEPA analysis and any potentially significant issues. The NEPA process will also identify alternatives and information needed to evaluate alternatives.

Alternatives under consideration for the study include: actions such as shoreline revetment, breakwaters, and sand placement, as well as non-structural measures.

The deadline for sending comments on the study is November 16.
