The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in cooperation with U.S. Army Garrison Fort Leonard Wood and the Maneuver Support Center of Excellence, have prepared a Programmatic Environmental Assessment and draft Finding of No Significant Impact for the Integrated Training Area Management program.
The PEA evaluates potential environmental effects of routine ITAM program activities at the installation and the Lake of the Ozarks Recreation Area. The proposed action is to implement ITAM program management activities programmatically, develop maneuver land to provide expanded training areas that fully meet the MSCoE requirements and standards, provide for additional Soldier bivouac areas, and maximize land used for mounted maneuver training.
In conformance with Executive Orders 11988, “Floodplain Management” and EO1190, “Protection of Wetlands,” notification is hereby given that FLW has evaluated the potential effects of implementing ITAM program activities on applicable floodplains and wetlands.
Written comments to this notice must be received on or before Feb. 23, and can be submitted to the point of contact listed below.
