Re: Second Appeal - Traill County Water Resource District, PA ID# 097-019BF-00
Leirness Drain #34 Repair, FEMA-1597-DR-ND, PWs 389 & 391
Dear Mr. Hoffer:
This is in response to your letter dated June 14, 2006, transmitting the second appeal of the Traill County Water Resource District (Applicant) dated May 15, 2006, of Project Worksheets (PWs) 389 and 391. The appeal disputes the quantity of identified disaster-related damage documented in the PWs.
As explained further in the enclosed appeal analysis, we have determined that the approved PWs accounted for all disaster-related damage to the facility. Therefore, I am denying this appeal. In addition, the Applicants proposed repair method constitutes an Improved Project and requires approval from your office in accordance with Title 44 of the Code of Federal Regulations (44 CFR) § 206.203(d)(1).
Please inform the Applicant of my decision. This determination constitutes the final decision on this matter pursuant to 44 CFR § 206.206.
