The environmental assessment of this federally assisted action indicates that the project will not cause significant local, regional, or national impacts on the environment. As a result of these findings, Patricia S. Leavenworth, State Conservationist, has determined that the preparation and review of an environmental impact statement are not needed for this project.

The project purposes are flood prevention and recreation. The planned works of improvement include the removal of two single family dwellings and a business from the hydraulic shadow of Structure Number 3, and the enactment of a county floodplain zoning ordinance which restricts future development within the hydraulic shadow of Structure Number 3. Sediment will be removed from the lake behind the dam.

The Notice of a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) has been forwarded to the Environmental Protection Agency and to various Federal, State, and local agencies and interested parties. A limited number of copies of the FONSI are available to fill single copy requests at the above address. Basic data developed during the environmental assessment are on file and may be reviewed by contacting Thomas Krapf at (608) 276-8732, Ext. 232.

No administrative action on implementation of the proposal will be taken until 30 days after the date of this publication in the Federal Register.
