Redistribution and Removal of Hazards from Stream Corridors Programmatic Environmental Assessment Colorado | March 2014
Redistribution and Removal of Hazards from Stream Corridors Programmatic Environmental Assessment Colorado | March 2014/// The Federal Government, through multiple agencies and their programs, proposes to remove rubble from destroyed structures and fallen trees to address immediate threats, and where necessary, redistribute sediment, rock and boulders within stream corridors to reestablish appropriate hydraulic capacity. The removal and redistribution of sediments and hazards from streambeds may be implemented under Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funding programs, such as, but not limited to Individual Assistance (IA), Public Assistance (PA), Hazard Mitigation Assistance (HMA) and Grants Program Directorate (GPD) funding. The Federal Highways Administration (FHWA) may provide funding as part of the Emergency Relief (ER) program or Emergency Relief Federally Owned (ERFO) program and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) may provide funding as part of the Emergency Watershed Protection (EWP) Program. Other Federal Agency (OFA) grant programs may also be applicable. The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) will be responsible for issuing appropriate Clean Water Act (CWA) Section 404 permits as required./ This Draft PA 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.
