Notice of Impacts to Wetlands in accordance with section 2(b) of E.O. 11990, Protection of Wetlands
Warren County announces the completion of a Draft Environmental Assessment (DEA) for the proposed runway extension and obstruction removal project at the Floyd Bennett Memorial Airport. The DEA has been prepared in accordance with the Federal National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Order 1050.1F, and FAA Order 5050.4B. The purpose of the proposed project is to provide adequate runway length and required runway safety areas to accommodate the family of critical design airplanes/aircraft currently operating at the airport and anticipated to operate at the airport in the next five years. The DEA evaluates the environmental, social, and economic consequences of the runway extension and obstruction removal project. Affected resources include biotic communities and wetlands, however, the project will mitigate impacts below significance levels.
