    Environmental Assessment for Millstone, NJ Residential Structure Relocations & Elevations

    Millstone Borough has requested financial assistance from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security-Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant Program pursuant to Section 404 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. §5121-5206 (Stafford Act) to elevate four residential structures above the base floodplain elevation and relocate two residential structures outside the floodplain within the community. All of the structures have been subject to repetitive and catastrophic flooding events.  This Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) serve as documentation of FEMA’s analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the proposed elevations and relocations, including analysis of project alternatives, and identification of impact minimization measures.


    This EA has been prepared to analyze the potential consequences to the natural and human environment associated with the Proposed Action, the No Action Alternative, and other potential alternatives per the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 United States Code [USC] 55 parts 4321 et seq., 2000), the President’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) implementing regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 30 parts 1500 et seq., 2004), and 44 CFR Emergency Management and Assistance Ch.

    Draft Environmental Assessment Plaquemines Parish Lake Hermitage Road Elevation Plaquemines Parish Hazard Mitigation Grant Program Project Number 1603-0419 Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana May 2015

    Hurricane Katrina, a Category 4 hurricane with a storm surge above normal high tide levels, moved across the Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama gulf coasts on August 29, 2005. Maximum sustained winds at landfall were estimated at 140 miles per hour. President Bush declared a major disaster for the State of Louisiana due to damages from Hurricane Katrina and signed a disaster declaration (FEMA-1603-DR-LA) on August 29, 2005, authorizing the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide federal assistance in designated areas of Louisiana. FEMA is administering this disaster assistance pursuant to the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (Stafford Act), PL 93-288, as amended. Section 406 of the Stafford Act authorizes FEMA' s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) to provide funds to states and local governments to implement long-term hazard mitigation measures after a major disaster declaration.

    This Draft EA has been prepared to analyze the potential consequences to the natural and human environment associated with the Proposed Action, the No Action Alternative, and other potential alternatives per the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 United States Code [USC] 55 parts 4321 et seq., 2000), the President’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) implementing regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 30 parts 1500 et seq., 2004), and 44 CFR Emergency Management and Assistance Ch.

  • Environmental Assessment for the St. Croix Coastal Interceptor Relocation Project

    Go to Resource

    The Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority (VIWMA) has been awarded a Pre-Disaster Mitigation grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security-Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Assistance program. A section of the St. Croix Coastal Interceptor, which carries sewage from the La Grande Princess area to the Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) pump station in Christiansted, St. Croix, is currently located offshore in Christiansted Harbor. VIWMA proposes to relocate the St. Croix Coastal Interceptor inland from manhole 0432 to manhole 0439. This project would increase the reliability of the LBJ pump station, improve the water quality of Christiansted Harbor, and avoid potential breakage of the sewer line from the wave action or storm surge caused by hurricanes. This Environmental Assessment serves as documentation of FEMA’s analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the proposed relocation, including analysis of project alternatives, and identification of impact minimization measures.

    This Final EA has been prepared to analyze the potential consequences to the natural and human environment associated with the Proposed Action, the No Action Alternative, and other potential alternatives per the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 United States Code [USC] 55 parts 4321 et seq., 2000), the President’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) implementing regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 30 parts 1500 et seq., 2004), and 44 CFR Emergency Management and Assistance Ch.
