Notice of Explanation of Project Located In a Floodplain

 

This is to give notice that the Brown County Board of Commissioners has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Order 11988 in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 to determine the potential affect that its activity in the floodplain will have on the environment. The Brown County Board of Commissioners have determined that there is not a practicable alternative other than locating the proposed Community Development Block Grant project described below in a floodplain.

An existing 54" corrugated steel storm sewer outfall pipe from the west side of Helmsburg to Lick Creek is deteriorated and will be replaced. It is anticipated that the replacement pipe will be 54" reinforced concrete pipe, installed along the existing pipe alignment and at approximately the same elevations. Approximately 1030 feet of this replacement outfall pipe will be located in regulatory floodplain Zone A6 (100-year) as defined by FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Map Panel 185174 0020 B. Approximately 0.70 acres of floodplain will be disturbed during construction activity.

The improvements must be located in the floodplain because Lick Creek is the closest drainage outlet for storm water runoff from the Town of Helmsburg, and because the deteriorated outfall pipe which is being replaced traverses said floodplain.

By publication of this notice, Brown County Board of Commissioners is inviting any final written comments prior to undertaking the proposed action. All comments should be addressed to Brown County Board of Commissioners, P.O Box 37, Nashville, IN 47448 not later than September 1, 2010.
