Final Environmental Assessment for Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority, Upper Narrows Pipelines Replacement Project,San Bernardino County, CA

Main Content

The Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority (VVWRA) has applied for funds through the California Emergency Management Agency to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Region IX Public Assistance Program to restore sewer service. Damage occurred as a result of the flood event between December 17, 2010, to January 4, 2011, known as the Presidentially declared disaster FEMA-DR-1952-CA. The portion of the sewer system which conveyed 14 million gallons per day was located in the Mojave River and failed as a result of the disaster. The damaged sewer line was replaced with temporary sewage conveyance facilities which are inadequate for permanent use. FEMA proposes to provide funding to VVWRA to permanently restore sewer service (PW 828).

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, FEMA has prepared a Final Environmental Assessment (EA) Upper Narrows Pipelines Replacement Project (April 2013) to evaluate the impacts of the Proposed Action and alternatives on the quality of the human environment. The Final EA includes measures that will be implemented to mitigate, minimize, and avoid impacts to the human environment. The Final EA was prepared after a Draft EA was submitted for public review and comment. FEMA incorporated relevant comments into the Final EA. The Final EA is available online at www.vvwra.org.
