Havens to Polk Transmission Line, Polk County Rural Public Power District, Stromsburg, NE (April 2012)

Main Content

Polk County Rural Public Power District is an entity that supplies electrical power to consumers in an area that covers the counties of Polk and Merrick in south central Nebraska. This proposed project will effectively reduce outages system wide due to the nature of its purpose, which is to tie two segmented, radial fed Substations.  This project will also mitigate against the three natural hazards that the District has detailed in its Hazard Mitigation Plan. FEMA prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposed project pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 and FEMA’s implementing regulations. The EA evaluates project alternatives and compliance with applicable environmental laws and Executive Orders including 11988 (Floodplain Management), 11990 (Protection of Wetlands), and 12898 (Environmental Justice). The purpose of this EA is to analyze the potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed project. FEMA will use the findings in this EA to determine whether to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) or issue a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI).
