Draft Environmental Assessment for Sebewaing River Emergency Floodway
FEMA proposed to assist in funding of flood mitigation measures in the Village of Sebewaing, Michigan. In accordance with the law and FEMA directives, an environmental assessment (EA) was prepared to assess the potential impacts of the Proposed Action on the human and natural environment. No comments from the public were received during the 30-day comment period, therefore, the EA has been finalized and a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) has been made. This also provides public notice for work within the regulated floodplain and wetlands, in accordance with Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 and 44 CFR Part 9.12. No practicable alternatives were identified to meet the community’s needs that do not involve work in the 100-year floodplain or wetlands.
