Environmental Assessment for Tiger Mountain Trail Footbridge Project, King County, Washington (September 2010)

The need for the FEMA action is to provide funds to DNR to restore the function that was lost with the damage of the High Point Creek footbridge. The January 2009 flood event rendered the footbridge unusable by hikers and other recreational users, disrupting the east/west trail system connection of this popular trail. This Draft Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared to assist FEMA in meeting its environmental review responsibilities under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, the Council on Environmental Quality’s (CEQ) implementing regulations (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] Parts 1500 through 1508), and FEMA’s implementing regulations (40 CFR Part 10).
