Description: 

On January 23, 2015, BOEM published an Environmental Assessment (EA) for public review and comment. BOEM carefully considered all comments received, and on September 17, 2015, made available a revised environmental assessment (EA) for the Wind Energy Areas (WEAs) offshore North Carolina. As a result of the analysis in the revised EA, BOEM issued a "Finding of No Significant Impact" (FONSI), which concluded that reasonably foreseeable environmental effects associated with the commercial wind lease issuance and related activities would not significantly impact the environment.
