Supplemental Environmental Assessment for Typical Recurring Actions Resulting from Flood, Earthquake, Fire, Rain, and Wind Disasters in City of Orinda North Lane, Califorinia (April 2013)
In 2003, FEMA prepared a Final Programmatic Environmental Assessment for Typical Recurring Actions Resulting from Flood, Earthquake, Fire, Rain, and Wind Disasters in California (PEA), which assesses the common impacts of action alternatives that are under consideration at the proposed project site. Under authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (42 USC 5121 et seq.) and CFR Title 44, FEMA’s HMGP provides grants to state and local governments to implement long-term hazard mitigation measures after a major disaster declaration. The purpose of the proposed project is to provide HMGP funding to the City of Orinda to reduce the risk of flooding in the vicinity of North Lane in the City of Orinda. Therefore, for FEMA funding of this project to comply with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), FEMA has prepared this Supplemental Environmental Assessment (SEA) to tier from the PEA and fully assess impacts to resources that are not adequately addressed in the PEA. This SEA hereby incorporates the PEA by reference, in accordance with Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Section 1508.28.
