FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT

Etowah County

SRF Project No. FS010332-01

ADEM Fund Code ARPA 200/DWSRF

The Alabama Department of Environmental Management has made $3,487,000 in financial assistance available to the Ford’s Valley & Hwy 278 Water Co-Op using funds from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and the FY2023 Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF).  In accordance with State and Federal regulations that govern the program, the Alabama Department of Environmental Management has conducted a review to assess the potential impacts upon the environment that may result from implementation of this project.

Ford’s Valley Water Co-Op proposes a project for the installation of a production deep water well with an associated treatment building to house all necessary equipment. Additional improvements to the water distribution system hydraulics include upgrades to five (5) existing problematic routes with new 6-inch and 8-inch PVC water mains.

The Alabama Department of Environmental Management has determined that the project qualifies for a Categorical Exclusion (CE) from further environmental study under the guidelines specified by the State Environmental Review Process (SERP) which specifically include actions which are solely directed toward minor rehabilitation of existing facilities, functional replacement of equipment, or towards the construction of new ancillary facilities adjacent or appurtenant to existing facilities.  However, this decision may be reconsidered if significant adverse information concerning the potential environmental impacts of the project is discovered.

Comments relative to this project should be submitted in writing to Mr. Thomas Cade Runyan,

SRF Section, Permits & Services Division, Alabama Department of Environmental Management, P.O. Box 301463, Montgomery, Alabama 36130-1463, no later than 30 days after the date of this notice.  The Alabama Department of Environmental Management will not take formal action to proceed with the project without carefully evaluating any public comments opposing the project.
