Revised Final - February 2012

pir iconThe Broward County Water Preserve Areas Revised Final PIR/EIS is available for review and public comment. You may view or download the report below and submit comments. The public comment period ends April 30, 2012.

The April 2007 Final Integrated PIR/EIS was approved by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Civil Works Review Board and coordinated with the public. However, the April 2007 PIR/EIS did not receive a signed Chief of Engineers' Report, nor a Record of Decision, due to changing policies at the time. Those policies have been finalized, and the EIS updated accordingly.

The February 2012 revisions to the 2007 Final Integrated PIR/EIS does not include substantial changes in the proposed action relevant to environmental concerns, the proposed action or its impacts. However, cumulatively, the revisions and additions are important as they are related to cost, modeling, final array of alternatives, benefits analysis, design, and compliance with new/updated policies and guidance.
