Draft Environmental Assessment Caliente Youth Center Bridge Flood Mitigation Project State of Nevada November 2013///Through the State of Nevada Division of Emergency Management (NDEM), the State of Nevada Public Works Division (SPWD) applied to the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Region IX Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) Program for funding to implement a flood mitigation project in the City of Caliente in Lincoln County, Nevada. The PDM Program was authorized by Section 203 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, Title 42 of United States Code Part 5133 as amended by Section 102 of the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-390, 114 Statutes 1552) to assist states and communities with implementation of sustained, pre-disaster, natural-hazard mitigation programs with the objective of reduction to overall risk to the population and structures, while reducing reliance on funding from actual disaster declarations. The FEMA-guided EA process provides steps and procedures to evaluate the potential environmental, social, and economic impacts of a proposed project and alternatives as well as an opportunity for the public and local, state/territorial, and other federal agencies to provide input and/or comment through scoping studies and a public comment period. These potential impacts are measured by their context and intensity, as defined in the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations.///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.
