A draft Environmental Assessment for Refuge Facilities Replacement, post Hurricane Harvey, at the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) is available for a 14-day public review The comment period ends April 21, 2020.

The plan describes two alternatives for dealing with post Hurricane Harvey facilities:

• The no action alternative would continue to operate under the temporary arrangements that were set up to facilitate day-to-day operations.

• The proposed action would remove damaged and destroyed infrastructure to bring back full administrative and visitor service capabilities.

A copy of the plan is available for review at www.fws.gov/refuge/Aransas.
