USACE to Facilitate Environmental Review of NGA’s Future St. Louis Facility

NGA-logoThe National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will collaborate to assess potential environmental consequences of building a new NGA facility within the greater St. Louis metropolitan area.

USACE will manage the environmental impact assessment for NGA and the analysis could take up to two years to complete, NGA said Monday.

NGA initially identified six possible sites for the agency’s construction project but found two of the properties do not meet its requirements.

USACE and NGA plan to hold open house-style meetings at various Missouri and Illinois locations from Dec. 9 to 11 to discuss the environmental review process and gather feedback from the public.
