The recently updated Pigeon Roost Creek Watershed Plan/Environmental Assessment analyzed the installation of a floodwater retarding structure within the Pigeon Roost Creek Watershed in Jackson County, Kentucky. This project is a federally-assisted action and the completed Watershed Plan/EA has indicated that the project will not cause significant local, regional, or national impacts on the environment. As a result of these findings, David G. Sawyer, State Conservationist, has determined that the preparation and review of an environmental impact statement is not necessary for this project.

The project purpose is to reduce flooding and sedimentation damages to the residences and businesses of McKee, Kentucky. The proposed project is the installation of flood retarding structure #3 (FRS#3) as originally planned and analyzed in the approved 1986 Pigeon Roost Watershed Plan and Environment Assessment.

The Notice of a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) has been forwarded to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and to various local agencies and interested parties. A limited number of copies of the FONSI are available by contacting the above address. Basic data developed during the environmental assessment are on file and may be reviewed by contacting Anita Arends, Resource Conservationist at 859-224-7354 or

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