Case No. 18-4-00066-38 25/3

Notice and Public Review

of a Proposed Activity

in a 100-Year Floodplain

To: All interested Federal, State, and Local Agencies, Groups and Individuals

This is to give notice that the Town of Rosalia has determined that a portion of the proposed Town of Rosalia Wastewater Collection System Rehabilitation and Water System Improvements and Associated Planning Document Updates (2017-2018) is located in the 100-year floodplain associated with Pine Creek. The Town of Rosalia will be identifying and evaluating practicable alternatives to locating the action in the floodplain and the potential impacts on the floodplain from the proposed action, as required by Executive Order 11988, in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management and Protection of Wetlands.

It should be noted that the Washington State Department of Commerce Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program component (CDBG contract number 17-62210-031) of the proposed project is not located in the 100-year floodplain.

This notice serves to function as the first public notice associated with 24 CFR 55.20, published for a 15-day comment period starting June 21, 2018.

Date Published: June 21, 2018 and June 28, 2018

Name of Applicant/Responsible Entity [RE]: Town of Rosalia

Project Title: Town of Rosalia Wastewater Collection System Rehabilitation and Water System Improvements and Associated Planning Document Updates (2017- 2018).

Location of the Project: The proposed project is located within Sections 10, 11, 14, and 15, Township 20 North, Range 43 East, Rosalia, Whitman County, Washington. The proposed project area is located within the Rosalia town limits, with the exception of approximately 1.0 acres of established pipeline that is located adjacent to the town boundary.

Project Description: The Town of Rosalia proposes to repair or replace approximately 21,600 feet of water and wastewater lines. The proposed project action is comprised of wastewater collection system improvements and rehabilitation of the water system within the Rosalia town limits, as well as improvements to water and wastewater lines on approximately 1.0 acres outside of, but adjacent to, the town boundary.

Acres of Floodplain Involved: Approximately 0.62 acres of the proposed project would occur in the 100-year floodplain.

Floodplain Impacts Resulting from the Proposal: Permanent floodplain impacts are not anticipated because pipe replacement/rehabilitation would occur in previously disturbed locations, and would match the pre-construction contours. There would be no net fill associated with the work in the 100-year floodplain.

Purpose for this Notice: There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplains and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas. Commenters are encouraged to offer alternative sites outside of the floodplain, alternative methods to serve the same project purpose, and methods to minimize and mitigate impacts. Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public educational tool. The dissemination of information and request for public comment about floodplains can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks and impacts associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk.

For further information please contact the Certifying Officer of the RE:

Mayor Leland F. Root, Town of Rosalia

(509) 523-5991

A full description of the proposed action may be reviewed at the following address:

Town of Rosalia

110 W. Fifth Street

Rosalia, WA 99170

Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Written comments should be mailed to:

Comments must be received no later than July 6, 2018. 25/2
