19-003 Corps invites comments on draft FONSI for City of Basalt Wastewater System Improvements Project

Published Jan. 11, 2019

BASALT, Idaho – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Walla Walla District invites public comments on a draft Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the Basalt, Idaho, Wastewater System Improvements Project. Comments will be accepted through Jan. 28, 2019.

The Corps proposes to assist the city of Basalt, Idaho (City) with upgrades to their Wastewater Treatment Facility to address reliability, capacity, operation and maintenance concerns. The Corps would provide funding for replacement of approximately 1,670 feet of pipeline, reconnecting service lines and a video inspection of the new pipelines. The Corps’ participation in this project is authorized under Section 595 of the Water Resources Development Act of 1999.

The city submitted an Environmental Information Document (EID) to address potential effects associated with implementation of the wastewater collection and treatment system improvements project. After an independent review of the city’s EID, the Corps found it to provide both sufficient evidence and analysis to meet the Corps’ requirements pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and has accepted and incorporated it as part of the Corps’ NEPA documentation.

The Corps’ draft FONSI, which includes the City of Basalt’s EID as one of several attachments, is available for viewing or downloading on the Walla Walla District website at www.nww.usace.army.mil/Missions/Environmental-Compliance.

The Corps will accept public input Jan. 14-28, 2019. All information and comments submitted will be included in the permanent public record.

Public comments may be submitted electronically to the Corps using the online comment form on the webpage, or via email NEPANWW@usace.army.mil -- type “Basalt 595” in the subject line.

Written comments may also be sent via U.S. Postal Service, addressed to:
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District
ATTN: CENWW-PPL-C (Basalt 595)
201 North 3rd Ave.
