Sharonville Flood Mitigation Project Final EA and FONSI

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.

Environmental Assessment - Lakeshore Boulevard Coastal Resilent Infrastructure Project

FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT - Environmental Assessment for the Coastal Resilient Infrastructure Project
City of Marquette, Marquette County, Michigan
Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grant Program
Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department Of Homeland Security


The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) proposes to provide funding to the City of Marquette, Michigan (subrecipient), to relocate a section of Lakeshore Boulevard away from the shore of Lake Superior. The subrecipient applied for funding from FEMA’s Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) Program to underwrite the proposed project. The PDM Program is authorized under Section 203 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 U.S.C. § 5133. The PDM Program assists communities in implementing hazard mitigation measures as part of a sustained pre-disaster hazard mitigation program. The goal of the program is to reduce the overall risk of future hazard events to people and property and reduce reliance on federal funding in the case of future disasters.

Final Environmental Assessment - Saxon Harbor Campground

During the incident period between July 11 and July 12, 2016, heavy rains resulted in severe flooding in Iron County. Heavy rainfall and overland flooding resulted in the inundation of Saxon Harbor and the surrounding area. Raging waters ripped through the entire facility causing severe erosion. The waters coursed through the campground. Under a major disaster declaration (FEMA-4276-DR-WI) signed by the President on August 9, 2016, Iron County was included in areas within Wisconsin eligible to receive Public Assistance (PA) program funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). FEMA’s PA grant program provides federal assistance to government organizations and certain private nonprofit organizations following a Presidential disaster declaration. Public Assistance is authorized by Section 406 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act (Public Law 93-288), 42 U.S.C. § 5172. The Iron County Forestry and Parks Department applied for funding from FEMA’s PA Program to be applied to the costs for relocating the campground (DR-4276-WI, Project Worksheet 149).

Programmatic Environmental Assessment for Pre-Disaster Mitigation Floodwall Projects in Illinois- January 2018
