FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT

TO ALL INTERESTED GOVERNMENTAL AGENCIES AND PUBLIC GROUPS: 

As required by guidelines for the Wyoming State Environmental Review Process, the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has performed an environmental review on the proposed State Revolving Fund (SRF) supported action below: 

Project:  Pineview I&SD Tank, Pump System, and Meter Project

Location: Campbell County, Wyoming 

Total Cost/SRF share: $680,000.00/$261,160.00 

Based on current cost estimates, the Pineview ISD plans to borrow $261,160 from the Wyoming Drinking Water State Revolving Loan Fund administered by the Wyoming Office of State Lands and Investments. The assessment of $65/month per user, adopted by the Board on December 5, 2016, will repay the loan. Loan terms will be at an interest rate of 2.5% for 20 years for $261,160.00. 

The proposed project will consist of construction of a new bolted steel water storage tank and control building with pumps and a backup generator, plus individual meter pits for each lot. The District currently has no water storage.

No significant adverse environmental impacts will occur due to this project. The proposed project will not adversely affect wetlands, prime agricultural lands, threatened or endangered species habitat, historical sites, or sites with environmentally sensitive characteristics. The primary impacts of the project will be short-term and construction related. 

The review process did not indicate significant environmental impacts would result from the proposed action. Consequently, DEQ has made a preliminary decision not to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). DEQ has taken this action on the basis of a review of the environmental assessment document and other supporting data, which are on file at the Wyoming DEQ Cheyenne Office. The public may review these documents upon request. 

Comments supporting or disagreeing with this decision may be submitted for DEQ consideration. Address all questions and comments to Rick Cripe, PE, Water and Wastewater Program Manager, Wyoming Water Quality Division, 200 W. 17th St. 4th Floor, Cheyenne, WY  82002, Phone: 307-777-7075, Fax: 307-777-7610, Email: Rich.Cripe@wyo.gov. After evaluating comments received, DEQ will make a final decision; however, DEQ will take no administrative action for at least 30 days after publication of this Finding of No Significant Impact.
