Public Notice: Cat Ex Publication Notice for City of Sheridan's Terra Turner Water Main Replacement Project

Categorical Exclusion Determination:
For the City of Sheridan, Wyoming
Sheridan Terra Turner Water Main Replacement Project
Sheridan County, Wyoming

The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality/Water Quality Division (WDEQ) has conducted a review of the proposed Sheridan Terra Turner Water Main Replacement Project in accordance with EPA and State of Wyoming procedures for implementing the State Environmental Review Process. DEQ has determined that this project is eligible for a categorical exclusion. Accordingly, DEQ is exempting the project from further substantive environmental review requirements under the State Environmental Review Process. Neither an Environmental Assessment/Finding of No Significant Impact nor an Environmental Impact Statement/Record of Decision will be required for the proposed action. The following is a brief description of the situation and the proposed action and a brief statement of how the action meets the criteria for a categorical exclusion.

This project consists of constructing the complete replacement of approximately 4,100 linear feet of 8” ductile iron pipe (DIP), valves, and fire hydrants in and along Turner Lane, Terra Avenue, Riverside Street, and South Sheridan Avenue between Riverside Street and East Brundage Lane, and will include any pertinences associated with this project.

To fund this project, the City intends to use funds from the Wyoming Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) loan. The City will present the preliminary design of the proposed project at the public meeting to be held on February 16, 2023. The total cost of the project is estimated at $2,000,000. Of this total project cost, the City plans to obtain the loans with a 1.25% interest rate, if principal forgiveness is not available. The Water Enterprise Fund will repay the loan.

The City of Sheridan is aware of and accepts the fact that they will be responsible for any required mitigative actions associated with and including stormwater runoff, erosion control, archeological/historic artifacts, and air quality concerns. These will be part of the standard State Revolving Funds Program contract conditions.

DEQ is granting an exclusion because the replacement of the waterline is in an area that has already been completely developed. DEQ has determined that exempting the proposed project from further review under the State Environmental Review Process will not result in adverse impacts to the population or the area of the City of Sheridan or Sheridan County, Wyoming.

The documentation to support this decision will be on file in the DEQ Cheyenne Office and is available for public scrutiny upon request. Comments concerning this decision may be addressed to Shawn King, SRF Project Manager, Department of Environmental Quality, 200 W. 17th St. Suite 200, Cheyenne, WY 82002. Tel.
