Seldovia Bay Ferry Dock Refurbishment

Nuka Research was contracted by the Seldovia Village Tribe to complete the environmental analysis in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act for the Seldovia Bay Ferry Dock Refurbishment project, funded by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) through the Tribal Transit Program. This project included close coordination with federal, state, and local government agencies. Nuka Research led public and agency scoping, Section 106 consultation, Section 7 Consultation under the Endangered Species Act, and Essential Fish Habitat consultation under the Magnuson-Stevens Act. These efforts resulted in a timely determination from the FTA and a clear permitting strategy to proceed to construction.
