Interested persons are hereby notified that the Port of Corpus Christi has applied to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) through the Port Security Grant Program for funding to assist with the installation of Pan, Tilt, Zoom (PTZ) color/thermal cameras that will be mounted on 60-foot camera poles at two separate locations. This proposed project will provide security camera surveillance of the Port’s main Corpus Christi Ship Channel, La Quinta Channel, and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway in Ingleside, San Patricio County, Texas.
A Programmatic Environmental Assessment (PEA) for Grant Programs Directorate Programs was prepared and a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) was issued in July 2010, in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), the Council for Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations implementing regulations of NEPA (40 CFR Parts 1500 – 1508), the National Historic Preservation Act, and the implementing regulations of FEMA (44 CFR Parts 9 and 10). FEMA’s environmental planning and historic preservation review concluded that all environmental areas of concern are appropriately accounted for in the PEA with the exception of floodplain impacts. A Draft Tiered Site-Specific Environmental Assessment (SEA) has been prepared in accordance with the July 2010 PEA to focus on Executive Order 11988 requirements and floodplain impacts of the proposed project.
