COMBINED NOTICE OF FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT AND INTENT TO REQUEST RELEASE OF FUNDS
November 17, 2016
Town of Dubach
P.O. Box 252
Dubach, LA 71235
318-777-3321
This Notice shall satisfy the above-cited two separate but related procedural notification requirements.
REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS
On or about December 5, 2016 the Town of Dubach will submit a request to the Louisiana Division of Administration for the release of Louisiana Community Development Block Grant Funds under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, to undertake a project known as FY 2016 LCDBG Public Facilities Program, for the purpose to upgrade its water treatment facilities to comply with the disinfection byproducts standards of the Department of Health and Hospitals and an Administrative Order that has been received because of their failure to comply with the Maximum Daily Limit of this primary standard. The project will greatly improve water quality and distribution system performance and reliability by correcting known health and safety violations and deficiencies.
FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
The Town of Dubach has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file to the Town of Dubach and may be examined or opied weekdays 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.
PUBLIC COMMENTS
Any individual, group, or agency disagreeing with this determination or wishing to comment on the project may submit written comments to the Town of Dubach. All comments received by December 2, 2016 will be considered by the Town of Dubach prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Commentors should specify which part of this Notice they are addressing.
RELEASE OF FUNDS
The Town of Dubach certifies to the Division of Administration that Robert Jensen in his capacity as Mayor consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. The Division of Administration approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities, and allows the Town of Dubach to use Program funds.
OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS
The Division of Administration will consider objections to its release of funds and the Town of Dubach certification received by December 20, 2016 or a period of fifteen days from its receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer or other officer of the Town of Dubach approved by the Division of Administration; (b) the Town of Dubach has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the grant recipient or other participants in the project have committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by the Division of Administration; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58) and shall be addressed to the Division of Administration at P.O. Box 94095, Baton Rouge, La. 70804-9094. Potential objectors should contact the Division of Administration to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
