Dear Mr. Ray:
This letter is in response to your November 18, 1996, submittal of the City of Napa's second appeal of Damage Survey Report (DSR) 21702 under FEMA-1046-DR-CA. This DSR denied costs associated with the restoration of the Kennedy Park Levee.
As explained in the enclosed analysis, the permanent restoration of the Kennedy Park Levee is not eligible for funding as this assistance is within the authority of another Federal agency, the USACE. The repair of the levee also does not qualify for funding as emergency work as an emergency protective measure as it has not been shown that the condition of the levee poses an immediate threat from a five-year event to improved property. Therefore, the appeal is denied.
Please inform the applicant of this determination and their right to submit a third appeal pursuant to 44 CFR 206.206(e).
Lacy E. Suiter
Executive Associate Director
Response and Recovery Directorate
