Final Notice and Public Explanation 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 Responsible Entity under Part 58 (Town of Rosalia) has conducted an evaluation 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 Wetlands Protection.

Portions of the Town of Rosalia Wastewater Collection System Rehabilitation and Water System Improvements (the proposed Project Action) are located in the 100-year floodplain associated with Pine Creek.

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.

The proposed Project Action would not involve any wetlands.

This notice serves to function as the final public notice associated with 24 CFR 55.20, published for a 7-day comment period starting July 13, 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 entire 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.

The CDBG funded component of the proposed Project Action (sewer and water improvements/rehabilitation) is located along First Street, Fairview Avenue, and Ninth Street.

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 associated with Pine Creek.

The Town of Rosalia has considered the following alternatives and mitigation measures to be taken to minimize adverse impacts and to restore and preserve natural and beneficial values:

The purpose of the proposed Project Action is to improve and rehabilitate the existing sewer and water systems located in the Town of Rosalia, and adjacent pipeline corridors. The primary reason for locating the project in the 100-year floodplain is because this is where the existing pipelines are located.

Alternatives Considered and Reasons for Non-Selection: The Town of Rosalia has considered the following alternatives:

1. Locating the project within the 100-year floodplain to address sewer and water issues in the existing pipelines

2. Locate in the 100-year floodplain with a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) – Site not eligible

Date Published: July 12, 2018

3. Locate in the 100-year floodplain with a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) - Site not eligible

4. Locating outside of the 100-year floodplain/Modifying pipeline routes to avoid to the 100-year floodplain - Rejected

5. No Action - Rejected

The rejected alternatives were not selected because of one or more of the following reasons, the alternatives: 1) do not fulfill site selection criteria, 2) do not achieve the full objective of the proposed Project Action, 3) they may result in increased environmental impacts, 4) they are economically infeasible, and 5) the site is not eligible.

Mitigation Measures to be Taken to Minimize Adverse Impacts and to Restore and Preserve Natural and Beneficial Values: Given the small area of excavation (less than 1 acre), the type of construction activities (excavation and rehabilitation of an existing line) and the location of the construction (within an existing roadway), temporary impacts to the floodplain (if any) would be negligible.

Water quality maintenance values of the floodplain would be protected during the ground disturbing activities by retaining and treating any construction related stormwater runoff onsite, through appropriate best management practices.

Cultural and historic values of the floodplain would be protected by implementing an Inadvertent Discovery Plan (and Monitoring Plan, as applicable) during construction in the 100-year floodplain.

Post-construction contours would be returned to pre-construction contours; no net fill would result from the proposed Project Action. As a result, no permanent floodplain impacts are expected from the proposed Project Action.

Alternative Reevaluation: The Town of Rosalia has reevaluated the alternatives to working in the floodplain and has determined that it has no practicable alternative. Environmental files that document compliance with steps 3 through 6 of Executive Order 11988, are available for public inspection, review and copying upon request at the times and location detailed in the last paragraph of this floodplain notice for receipt of comments.

Purpose of the Notice: There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplain 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. 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.

Written comments must be received by the Town of Rosalia at the following address on or before July 20, 2018:

Town of Rosalia

Attn: Leland F. Root, Mayor

110 W. Fifth Street

Rosalia, WA 99170

A full description of the project may also be reviewed Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. at the abovementioned address. Comments may also be submitted via email at [email protected]
