Description: 

The final Environmental Assessment (EA) finds that issuance of leases and approval of site assessment plans within the Mid-Atlantic Wind Energy Areas (WEAs) would have no significant impact on the environment. As such, the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is not necessary for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) to proceed with the lease issuance process. Through the review process, BOEM ultimately determined that Alternative A should no longer be the proposed action and the preferred alternative, and instead identified Alternative E as the proposed action and the preferred alternative.
