Environmental Assessment for Communication Tower, Coryell County, Gatesville, Texas (April 2012)

Main Content

The current public safety telecommunications infrastructure in Coryell County is insufficient to have complete coverage throughout the emergency service area, as the existing tower height is not adequate to provide radio coverage to the northern and western portions of Coryell County.  This lack of radio coverage adversely impacts the ability to maintain radio communication, which is directly related to ability to provide emergency services and respond to emergency events. An Environmental Assessment (EA) includes an evaluation of alternative means of addressing the purpose and need for federal action and a discussion of the potential environmental consequences of the proposed federal action.  The EA provides the evidence and analysis to determine whether the proposed federal action will have a significant adverse effect on the human environment.  An EA related to a FEMA program must be prepared according to the requirements of the Stafford Act and 44 CFR Part 10.  This section of the Federal Code requires that the FEMA take environmental considerations into account when authorizing funding or approving actions.  This EA was conducted in accordance with both CEQ and FEMA regulations for NEPA.  FEMA will use the findings in this EA to determine whether to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) or a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI).
