UPDATE: July 8, 2013

The public comment period for the Indianapolis North Flood Damage Reduction Project Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (FSEIS) has been extended until Sept. 6 of 2013. The extension was requested by the City of Indianapolis in an effort to ensure sufficient outreach and collection of public comments.  The total comment period for the FSEIS is 91 days.

UPDATE: June 7, 2013

LOUISVILLE, KY – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Louisville District has completed and released the FSEIS. View the document at bit.ly/indynorthlevee

 The FSEIS includes several alternatives for completion of the Phase 3B alignment in South Warfleigh.  Public and agency comments received during the review of the Draft SEIS in the fall of 2012 were considered in the development of the FSEIS.  The FSEIS also recommends tree clearing for Phases 3A and 3C which is required to meet Corps of Engineers Levee Safety Criteria. 

The FSEIS is now being circulated for public comment. During that time, federal, state, and local agencies, and members of the public, may submit written comments to the Corps of Engineers by e-mail or formal letter.  The FSEIS and instructions for submission of comments are available at the Corps Internet site bit.ly/indynorthlevee.  The Corps will evaluate all comments received and take into consideration input from the City of Indianapolis, prior to any decisions being made on the final alignment for Phase 3B.  Those decisions will be set forth in a Record of Decision (ROD) by the Corps of Engineers, Louisville District.
