    Tyrrell Park Detention Project Beaumont, Jefferson County, Texas

    The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) previously prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) in January 2012 addressing Jefferson County Drainage District No. 6’s (JCDD6) Tyrrell Park detention basin project. That EA resulted in a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI), which was signed in February 2012. This Supplemental Environmental Assessment (SEA) documents revisions made to the project, including partial modification to the configuration of the largest basin, repair and repaving of an additional 1650 linear feet of Phelps Road (400 linear feet of repair were addressed in the original EA) due to deterioration from construction equipment, additional culverts under Downs Road, and minor clean-out of approximately 3800 linear feet of ditch downstream of the detention basins. Portions of the previously approved project were recently constructed including the smaller basin, new culverts under Phelps Road, and minor stabilization at culverts.

    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. I Part 10.
