Environmental Assessment for Johnson Bayou Fire Station/Waterworks District Building Change of Location, Cameron Parish, Louisiana (October 2011)
The Johnson Bayou Fire Station and Waterworks District Building (Fire Station) and its contents were destroyed as a result of Hurricane Rita in September 2005. Cameron Parish determined that replacement of the facility in its current location would not best meet the needs of the community. In accordance with 44 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) for FEMA, Subpart B – Agency Implementing Procedures, Section 10.9, an Environmental Assessment (EA) was prepared pursuant to Section 102 of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as implemented by the regulations promulgated by the President’s Council on Environmental Quality (40 CFR Parts 1500-1508). This EA will determine if a proposed reconstruction and change of location of the Fire Station and Waterworks District building will have the potential for significant adverse effects on the quality of the human and natural environment.
