NOTICE OF DETERMINATION OF NONSIGNIFICANCE (DNS)

Whitman County Planning issued a Determination of Nonsignificance (DNS) under the State Environmental Policy Act Rules (Chapter 197-11 WAC) for the following project:

A bio-engineered bank stabilization project on the South Fork of the Palouse River. An Avista power pole on a residential parcel on the bank of the Palouse River is being threatened by streambank erosion. This project will help stabilize the streambank in order to save the power pole. A plan by the Palouse Conservation District will place 18-24 inch boulders or shot rock from a local quarry around the power pole to armor it. The top edge of the bank will be sloped back from vertical to a 2:1 or a 3:1 slope in order to provide a vegetated area. The location of the project is at 2351 Brayton Road on the west side of Pullman just north of Hayward Road, in Section 31, Township 15 N., Range 45 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 DNS are available at no charge from the 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 p.m. on Thursday, August 16, 2018 to the County Planning Office, P.O. Box 430, Colfax, WA 99111-0430, (fax) 509-397-6210,
