Draft Environmental Assessment City of Carencro Post Road Channel Improvements HMGP No. 4015‐055‐0001/ FEMA‐4015‐DR‐LA, Project No. 2
The Post Road Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is located near the City of Carencro (Figure 1) and has been the primary wastewater treatment facility for Carencro over the past 30 years. An unnamed drainage channel runs along the south boundary of the oxidation pond. This channel drains a western portion of Carencro and unincorporated areas of Lafayette Parish, continues east, and discharges into Beau Bassin Coulee. Beau Bassin Coulee traverses the City of Carencro, discharging into the Vermilion River just north of the City of Lafayette. Noticeable erosion has occurred in the channel migrating toward the toe of the oxidation pond embankment as a result of several significant rainfall events. This erosion threatens the structural integrity of the oxidation pond embankment and continued erosion will likely initiate complete failure.
The City of Carencro applied for and was awarded funding through the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness (GOHSEP) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to improve the channel embankment.

Draft Environmental Assessment: Vermont State Agriculture and Environmental Laboratory (V.A.E.L), Randolph, Orange County, VT
As a result of damages caused by Tropical Storm Irene (Irene) between August 27 and September 2, 2011, the President declared a major disaster for the State of Vermont under the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act of 1973 (Stafford Act). This major disaster declaration, referenced as FEMA-4022-DR-VT, authorizes the Federal Emergency Management Agency (F.E.M.A.) to provide Public Assistance (P.A.) through the Vermont Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (D.E.M.H.S./Grantee) to local governments, state agencies and eligible Private Non-Profit (P.N.P.) organizations in all Vermont counties.
In response to Irene and the flooding within the Waterbury State Office Complex (W.S.O.C.), the State of Vermont took immediate action to relocate laboratory facilities and staff housed in the Vermont State Agriculture and Environmental Laboratory (V.A.E.L.) on the W.S.O.C. campus to alternate facilities around the state. The State of Vermont Department of Buildings and General Services (B.G.S./Sub-Grantee) has applied for assistance under the P.A. Program to relocate the function of the state-run agriculture and environmental laboratories from the W.S.O.C. to a new facility to be constructed on the campus of the Vermont Technical College (V.T.C.) in Randolph, Vermont (Appendix A-1).

A key element to successfully responding to and recovering from a major disaster is the overall preparedness of individual citizens and their families. With that in mind, we invite you to participate in a series of ‘What would you do?’ scenarios with your loved ones in order to assess your level of preparedness. These tabletop activities are intended to be low-stress conversation starters to be discussed, as the name implies, around your dinner table.
FEMA identifies coastal flood hazards, assesses flood risks, and provides accurate flood risk data to help drive communities toward mitigation actions and achieve greater resilience. This infographic presents the coastal flood hazard analysis and mapping process, used to conduct flood hazard analysis and mapping studies to produce FIRMs (Flood Insurance Rate Maps). These flood maps are used to administer the National Flood Insurance Program and they provide information to communities for the adoption and enforcement of floodplain management measures to help mitigate the effects of flooding.
A functional exercise is a mix of real-world actions and notional activities. Developing sophisticated exercises like Cascadia Rising is a professional discipline. Many of the terms and concepts used to conduct (and explain) how a major Functional Exercise works can be confusing. Other essential operational terms are also included for reference. Please refer to the explanations in this document as needed.
