United States: Record of Decision on feral swine damage management program

The preferred alternative is the option that calls for an integrated, multi-pronged national APHIS response that includes State-level programs to reduce feral swine damage as well as national and strategic local projects that help to contain and eradicate feral swine populations.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA's) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is announcing the availability of the Record of Decision (ROD) for its final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the APHIS Feral Swine Damage Management Program.

APHIS published a draft EIS in December 2014 and received public input over a 45-day comment period. After carefully reviewing all public input, it finalized the EIS in June 2015. After a 30-day waiting period, APHIS has chosen to implement the alternative – known as the “preferred alternative” – that best meets the purpose and need for the EIS.

The preferred alternative is the option that calls for an integrated, multi-pronged national APHIS response that includes State-level programs to reduce feral swine damage as well as national and strategic local projects that help to contain and eradicate feral swine populations.

APHIS selected this option because it is balanced in its ability to meet the program goal and objectives, benefits the environment by reducing feral swine damage to natural and cultural resources, and has a low risk of adverse environmental effects. This option will be implemented in partnership with Federal, State, Territorial, and Tribal agencies and others. It will also provide cost-share opportunities and includes a national component to emphasize research, monitoring, education and other coordinated support actions.
