The environmental assessment of this federally assisted action indicates that the modifications to the project will not cause significant local, regional, or national impacts on the environment. As a result of these findings, Charles W. Bell, State Conservationist, has determined that the preparation and review of an environmental impact statement are not needed for this action.
The original project purpose was flood prevention. Supplement No. 7 will add fish and wildlife development as a second purpose. The proposed work involves reconstructing 1,100 feet of flood channel to improve its fish habitat characteristics.
The Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) has been forwarded to the Environmental Protection Agency and to various Federal, State, and local agencies. 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 Luana Kiger, Special Assistant to the State Conservationist.
No administrative action on implementation of the proposal will be taken until 30 days after the date of this publication in the Federal Register.Start Signature
