Environmental Assessment for Lewis County Fire District #13, Replacement of Fire Station #1 (Main Station), Boistfort, Lewis County, Washington (July 2012)
The Lewis County Fire District #13 (LCFD#13 or Fire District) substation (Station #1) was damaged by flooding. Under the Stafford Act, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) provides Public Assistance (emergency and infrastructure) funding to local and state public entities, and private non-profit (PNP) groups to restore damaged infrastructure. This Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, the President's Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations to implement NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] Parts 1500-1508), and FEMA's regulations implementing NEPA (44 CFR Part 10). FEMA will use the findings in this EA to determine whether to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement or a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). The proposed new fire station location is approximately 14 miles south of Chehalis, Washington, in the community of Boistfort, at 997 Boistfort Road.
