Notice of Explanation

Of Project Located In

A Floodplain

This is to give notice that the Town of Shoals has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Order (11988 or 11990) in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 to determine the potential affect that its activity in the floodplain will have on the environment. The Town of Shoals has determined that there is not a practicable alternative other than locating the proposed Community Development Block Grant project described below in a floodplain.

The Town of Shoals will make improvements to their wastewater utility. The proposed project will impact approximately .124 acres of floodplain by relining 6,500 linear feet of sewer line with cured in place pipe.

The improvements must be located in the floodplain because the project consists of improvements to the Town’s existing wastewater system, which is located in the floodplain. The Town does not anticipate any adverse effects relating to this project as all work will be completed in already disturbed areas.

By publication of this notice, the Town of Shoals is inviting any final written comments prior to undertaking the proposed action. All comments should be addressed to Cary Albright, Shoals Town Council President, Shoals Town Hall, 221 Low Street, P.O. Box 1078, Shoals, IN 47581, not later than March 23, 2022.
