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:

The cleaning out of Thorn Creek to prevent flooding of adjacent agricultural fields. This section of Thorn Creek is designated as a Prior Converted Cropland (PCC) and is also a regulated floodplain. Ditching in a floodplain requires a floodplain development permit from Whitman County which triggers a SEPA. Approximately 2,950 feet of Thorn Creek will be cleaned out. The location of the project is approximately five miles south of Malden on Thorn Creek Road between Mortimore Road and Maley Road in the NW ¼ of Section 13, Township 19 N., Range 42 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, September 6, 2018, to the County Planning Office, P.O. Box 430, Colfax, WA 99111-0430, (fax) 509-397-6210,
