We determined that construction and operation of the Projects would result in limited adverse environmental impacts, with the exception of impacts on forested land. This determination is based on a review of the information provided by the applicants and further developed from environmental information requests; field reconnaissance; scoping; literature research; alternatives analyses; and contacts with federal, state, and local agencies, and other stakeholders.
We conclude that approval of the Projects would result in some adverse and significant environmental impacts. Although many factors were considered in this determination, the principal reasons are.
• Rover would minimize impacts on natural and cultural resources during construction and operation of its Project by implementing its Plan and Procedures; HDD Contingency Plan; state-specific Agricultural Impact Mitigation Plans; Unanticipated Discovery Plans; Spill Plan for Oil and Hazardous Materials; Blasting Plan; Winter Construction Plan; and Karst Mitigation Plan.
• Trunkline and Panhandle would minimize impacts on natural and cultural resources during construction and operation of its Project by implementing FERC’s Plan and Procedures, its SPAR Plan, and its Unanticipated Discoveries Plan.That was not all.
