NOTICE OF
A MITIGATED DETERMINATION
OF NONSIGNIFICANCE (M-DNS)
Whitman County Planning issued a Mitigated Determination of Nonsignificance (M-DNS) under the State Environmental Policy Act Rules (Chapter 197-11 WAC) for the following project:
Kelly and Raelynn Farnsworth propose to build a livestock exclusion fence and a buried pipeline for livestock watering purposes along the Dry Creek. The project also includes the installation of a Riparian Forest Buffer, planted to a width of 35 feet adjacent to the Dry Creek to lower water temperatures and to improve habitat for aquatic organisms and wildlife. The property is located approximately 5 miles north of Colfax, on Dry Creek Road, in Section 17, Township 17 N., Range 44 E., W.M., Whitman County, Washington.
After review of a completed environmental checklist and other information on file with us, the Planning Office has determined that this proposal will not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment.
Copies of the M-DNS are available at no charge from the County Planning Office, Whitman County Public Service Building (2nd Floor), N. 310 Main St., Colfax, WA 99111. Interested persons may submit environmentally-focused written comments on the SEPA decision by 5:00 PM on Thursday, May 11, 2017 to the County Planning Office, P.O. Box 430, Colfax, WA 99111-0430, fax: (509) 397-6210.
