Event Description:
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in cooperation with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, is seeking public comment on a draft environmental assessment regarding public access site development and renovation projects on navigable waters for the State of Indiana. The project purpose is to develop public access sites on navigable waters in the State of Indiana, as well as to renovate or rehabilitate existing public access sites in the state to ensure safe boating access for the public.

Under the authority Title 14 Article 22 of the Indiana Code authorizes the Indiana DFW to provide for the management of fish and wildlife in the state and to conduct projects in accordance with the Sport Fish Restoration Program. Providing free access to Indiana’s public waters helps to ensure that there are adequate opportunities for the people of Indiana to participate in fishing, hunting, boating, canoeing, and nature study. The draft environmental assessment evaluates several proposed action alternatives and funding options to address this goal, including no action, dependence on private sites to provide access, and continued use of Federal Sport Fish Restoration funding to improve access in Indiana.

The purpose of this environmental assessment is to look at the feasibility and environmental consequences associated with each alternative, as it pertains to site selection and review process for development, renovation, and rehabilitation of public access sites on navigable waters in Indiana.  This environmental assessment was prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act that applies to the actions of all federal agencies.

Hard copies or additional information regarding the environmental assessment may be obtained Darren Egbert, Indiana DNR Operations Project Manager, at 317-232-8166.

Comments can be submitted via email to: DEgbert@dnr.in.gov

Comments need to be received within 30 days of this posting.
