PUBLIC NOTICE

Notice is hereby given to the public of the Department of Homeland Security Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) intent to fund a proposed project under the Pre-Disaster Mitigation grant program. This program allows FEMA to provide financial assistance to local jurisdictions to implement projects that are designed to reduce the impacts of future disasters and make the community more disaster resistant.

Benson County has applied to FEMA for a proposed project for Northern Plains Electric Cooperative to install 4.75 miles of new underground distribution cable to increase capacity and improve service reliability to consumers in an area that experiences repeated flooding. This new line will replace a section of underground line currently inundated with water that is no longer serviceable. The proposed project area is located in T152N, R67W, Section 11, in Benson County.

As part of the environmental review of the proposed project, FEMA is required under the National Environmental Policy Act to consider all reasonable alternatives and possible solutions to reduce damages caused by flooding. FEMA must also apply all requirements of Executive Orders issued by the President of the United States which requires Federal agencies, when considering an action or funding, to focus attention on the environment and human health with particular respect to Floodplain Management (Executive Order 11988), and Protection of Wetlands (Executive Order 11990). The public must be informed of any

action(s) that would take place in a floodplain, or take place in wetlands or affect wetlands, either directly or indirectly.

Portions of the power line proposed project are located near wetlands. Per Executive Order 11990, FEMA must apply an Eight-Step Decision-Making Process to determine if the proposed action would impact wetlands and if so, to avoid or minimize the potential adverse impacts.

Wetlands have been identified near portions of the proposed project area. FEMA will determine whether wetlands can be avoided during project construction or if wetlands could be potentially impacted. Normally, the use of the cable plow method to install underground cable does not adversely affect wetlands. However, if wetlands could potentially be affected either directly or indirectly, permits and mitigation measures would be required to eliminate or minimize impacts to any wetlands.

Interested persons may submit comments or request additional information by contacting Gary Allen with Benson County at 701-968-1749 or [email protected] or by contacting Joan Huston, FEMA Region VIII Mitigation Environmental Coordinator at the Denver Federal Center, PO Box 25267, Denver, Colorado, 80225, by e-mail at [email protected] or by calling 303-235-4798 between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Mountain Time, Monday through Friday. This comment period is for

15 days from the date of this notice.
