Through this Environmental Assessment (EA), the Minerals Management Service (MMS) concludes that issuance of leases authorizing wind resource data collection on seven leases blocks located on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) offshore Delaware and New Jersey would have no significant effect on the human environment. An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is not required, and the agency issued its Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). MMS proposes several mitigation measures that would be added to the lease terms to reduce or eliminate potential environmental impacts.
