Sharonville Flood Mitigation Project Final EA and FONSI
The Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) proposes to provide funding to the City of Sharonville, Ohio (subrecipient) to construct flood mitigation along an unnamed tributary to Sharon Creek. The City of Sharonville applied for funding from FEMA’s Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) Program to underwrite the proposed project. The FMA Program is authorized under the National Flood Insurance Reform Act of 1994, 42 U.S.C. § 4101. The goal of the FMA Program is to reduce or eliminate claims under the National Flood Insurance Program. FMA is a pre-disaster grant program.
The proposed project is located within the city limits of the City of Sharonville, Ohio, in the northeast portion of Hamilton County. The purpose of the Sharonville project is to reduce flood hazards and flood damage in the center of Sharonville associated with an unnamed tributary to Sharon Creek that runs through the city. The project is needed because residential and commercial properties in the downtown area of Sharonville are at risk of flooding during a 100-year storm event, including two repetitive loss properties. The Proposed Action would reduce flood hazards to 58 residential and commercial properties in the 100-year floodplain by constructing the following features.
