Notice of the Availability of an Environmental Assessment

The USDA, Rural Utilities Service has received an application for financial assistance from Westmoreland County. As required by the National Environmental Policy Act, the Rural Utilities Service has prepared two Environmental Assessments and an associated Addendum that evaluated the po- tential environmental effects and consequences of the proposed project. This notice announces the availability of the Environmental Assessments and the Addendum for public review and comment.

The proposal consists of installation of a low pressure wastewater collection system involving placement of collection lines, force mains and grinder pumps in the Glebe Harbor, Tidwells, Drum Bay and Cabin Point areas to transport waste to the existing Coles Point Wastewater Treatment Plant. In order to minimize potential impacts to environ- mental resources, the following mitigation mea- sures will be enforced:

1. The project will obtain all permits prior to the start of construction and strictly adhere to all permit requirements during construction activities.

2. Archaeological monitoring of construction lines #6, 16, 19 and 22 in Glebe Harbor in the vicinity of sites 44WM0039, 096- 0081, 44WM0199, 44WM0049, 096- 0008, 44WM0198 and 44WM0047 will occur during construction to ensure these sites are avoided.

3. If intact archaeological deposits are en- countered during construction, all work in the immediate area will cease and the monitoring official will be allowed to in- spect the discovery and the VA Department of Historic Resources will be contacted for guidance on treatment of the discovery.

4. No structures will be constructed in flood- plain or wetland areas.

5. Active eagle nests WE0205 and WE0312 are located within 660 feet of the project area. No construction activity with 660 feet of these nests will occur from Decem- ber 15 to July 15 of any given year.

The alternatives considered to the proposed proj- ect include: 1. Construction of a conventional gravity system that would include line installation and pump stations for conveyance, 2. Construc- tion of a vacuum sewer system that would include line installation, vacuum pumps and a vacuum sta- tion, and 3. The “no action” alternative.

Copies of the Environmental Assessments and Addendum are available for review at USDA, Rural Development, 1606 Santa Rosa Road, Suite 238, Richmond, VA 23229, or the Westmoreland County Administration Building, 111 Polk Street, Montross, VA 22520. For further information, contact Tara Delaney at (804) 287-1599, or tara.delaney@ va.usda.gov. Any person interested in comment- ing on this proposed project should submit com- ments to the address above by January 10, 2015.

A general location map of the proposal is available upon request.
