  • Description:
    "This Environmental Assessment (EA) was prepared to evaluate the potential impacts on the human and natural environment associated with the proposed utility infrastructure (herein referred to as conduit) installation and seawall repair project (the Project) for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Ocean Service (NOS) Center for Coastal Fisheries Habitat Research (CCFHR) located on Pivers Island, Town of Beaufort, Carteret County, North Carolina. Pivers Island is a 25-acre island and shared jointly by the NOAA, NOS CCFHR on the northern half of the island and the Duke University Marine Laboratory (DUML) on the southern half of the island. The CCFHR campus is home to two components of NOAA, the NOS and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). The NOAA CCFHR Beaufort laboratory is administered by NOS, and NMFS occupies office and laboratory space on the campus. Offices for the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve (NCNERR) program are also located on the CCFHR campus. A Master Plan was developed for the CCFHR in 2009, which proposed the elimination of smaller outbuildings and construction of new buildings among other campus developments. The Master Plan also proposed a utility infrastructure project. The purpose of the proposed Project is to provide a more secure electrical and telecommunications network for the CCFHR campus, particularly during storm events that have the potential to bring down overhead utilities and during electrical outages caused by avian impacts with overhead utility lines. In addition, an 800- foot section of an existing seawall that was damaged during Hurricane Sandy in 2012 needs to be repaired"--Executive summary.
