SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top
The Final EA evaluated the granting of an easement to the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSD) for the sole purpose of installing sanitary sewer and storm sewer improvements to the MSD's existing sewer system and the rehabilitation and expansion of an existing storm water detention basin. The proposed easement covers approximately 0.64 acres located adjacent to the intersection of Grandin Road and Grand Beech Lane, Cincinnati, Ohio. The EA also evaluated the construction activities associated with the MSD's sanitary sewer and storm sewer improvements. The purpose and need of the proposed easement is to provide access to MSD to implement/construct MSD sanitary sewer and storm sewer improvements on Federally-owned land in the custody and control of HHS/CDC.
The Final EA has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969. Based on the results of the EA, HHS/CDC has issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) indicating that the proposed action will not have a significant impact on the environment. Minimization and mitigating measures will include: Compliance with applicable regulatory laws, procedures, and permits for all construction activities; development and implementation of Erosion and Sedimentation Control Plan; conduct potential habitat survey for identified wildlife; site review by state historic preservation office before construction to avoid disturbance of any site with the potential for archeological significance; and the application of best management practices (BMP) to minimize short term air quality and noise impact during construction activities.
