 Disposition Study for Multiple Waterways in Coastal Georgia Integrated Report/Environmental Assessment

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Savannah District (Corps) evaluated two alternatives, including the No Action Alternative (NAA) and Action Alternative to deauthorize nine waterways in Coastal Georgia that no longer meet Congressionally authorized purposes and provide national security needs. Those waterways include the Altamaha River, Bellville Point Harbor, Darien Harbor, Fancy Bluff Creek, Ocmulgee River, Oconee River, Sapelo Harbor, Satilla River, and St. Marys River. The recommended plan includes deauthorization of the waterways. The federal interest has ceased and deauthorization would not result in significant impacts on the human environment. Environmental protections would continue under state jurisdiction and accompanying federal laws.
