Environmental Assessment for Water Supply Well #3 in City of Caliente, Nevada

The City of Caliente has applied through the Nevada Division of Emergency Management to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Region IX Public Assistance (PA) Program for funding to replace a culinary water well damaged during the flood events of January 2005, which were declared a major disaster (FEMA-1583-DR-NV). FEMA proposes to provide PA Program funds pursuant to Section 406 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, Public Law 93-288, as amended, and its implementing regulations codified at Title 44 of the Code of Federal Regulations (44 CFR) Part 206. FEMA has prepared this Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate the impacts of the proposed PA Program project.
