Public Notice: 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: North City Zone Improvements
Location: Laramie County, Wyoming
Total Cost/SRF share: $12,000,000/$3,960,000

The proposed project is the design and construction of a three-million-gallon elevated water storage tank. The water storage tank will include pipeline from the tank to the existing transmission main and additional valves at Round Top Tank to isolate it from the distribution system.

The project project is funded through a Wyoming Water Development Commission grant of 2/3 of the total project cost ($8,000,000) and the remainder SRF loan ($3,96,000). Water rates will not be increased to repay the loan.

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 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 Stan Miller, SRF Project Engineer, Department of Environmental Quality, 200 W. 17th St. Suite 200, Cheyenne, WY 82002, Tel. (307) 777-6371, FAX (307) 635-1784, email: stanley.miller@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.
