→ Draft Environmental Assessment and preliminary finding on Borrego Pipeline (TX) permit application

Comments Close:

The US Department of State has published a draft Environmental Assessment for the Borrego Pipeline Presidential permit application. The Assessment evaluates 'the potential environmental impacts of the construction, connection, operation, and maintenance of a proposed new pipeline at the US-Mexico border in Webb County, Texas.' The Department is announcing its preliminary 'Finding of No Significant Impact' for this project.  Per the National Environmental Policy Act, a non-significant finding on a final Environmental Assessment ends the National Environmental Policy Act process and allows the permit application to move forward. The Department of State is soliciting comments on both the draft Environmental Assessment and their preliminary Finding of No Significant Impact.
