Early Notice and Public Review of a Proposed Activity in a 100-Year Floodplain and/or Wetlands
This is to give notice that the Town of Chatham has determined that the following proposed action under the Town’s 2022 LCDBG Public Facilities Program is located in the 100-year floodplain and wetlands, and the Town will be identifying and evaluating practicable alternatives to locating the action in the floodplain and wetlands and the potential impacts on the floodplain and wetlands from the proposed action, as required by Executive Order 11988 and 11990, in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management and Protection of Wetlands.
The Town of Chatham proposes to rehabilitate the town’s existing sewer system and lift stations. This will consist of demolition for existing lift station enclosure, piping/valving, pumps, motors and controls, temporary facilities, inclusive of by-pass pump, controls, fuel/power, operation, and related items, lift station inclusive of submersible pumps, motors, v-belts, controls, electrical, discharge piping/valving, and related items, wet well rehabilitation, station piping, site work inclusive of earthwork, concrete pad, erosion control, access drive, and related items, cure in place pipe, manhole inspection, cleaning and inspection of sewer, pipe bursting, manhole restoration system, manhole adjustment, connection to manhole, point repairs, emergency power system (WWTP), emergency power system (Lift Station 4 and 5), Lift Station 4 enclosure and
wet well riser, and watertight manhole frame and lid.
There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplains and wetlands those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas. Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public
educational tool. The dissemination of information about floodplains and wetlands can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains and wetlands, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk.
Written comments must be received by the Town of Chatham at the following address on or before December 22, 2022: Gregory Harris, Mayor, Town of Chatham, P.O. Box 7, Chatham, LA 71226-0007. The Town of Chatham can be contacted by phone at 318-249-2541. A full description of the project may also be reviewed at the Chatham Town Hall.
