Notice of Explanation
NOTICE OF EXPLANATION OF PROJECT LOCATED IN A FLOODPLAIN
This is to give notice that the Town of Montezuma has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Order 11988 in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 to determine the potential affect that its activity in the floodplain or wetland will have on the environment. The Town of Montezuma has determined that there is not a practicable alternative other than locating the proposed Community Development Block Grant project described below in a floodplain.
Wastewater Improvements Project – The proposed work within the floodplain includes the installation of remote monitoring system to the existing valve pits. Since the work is to existing infrastructure, there are no alternatives. All other work is below grade, thus no changes to the floodplain are anticipated.
By publication of this notice, the Town of Montezuma is inviting any final written comments prior to undertaking the proposed action. All comments should be addressed to the project’s Grant Administrator, Kristy Jerrell, Jerrell Consulting & Grant Administration Services LLC, 1813 West Colonial Drive, Terre Haute, IN 47802, not later than March 7, 2019.
John W. “Jay” Norris,
Town Council President
