City of Correctionville
Early Notice and Public Review of a Proposed Activity in a 100-Year Floodplain or Wetland
May 20, 2021
This is to give notice that the City of Correctionville has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Order 11988 and/or 11990, in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management, to determine the potential affect that its activity in the floodplain and wetland will have on the human environment for a CDBG Sanitary Sewer Improvements Project (#21-WS-001).
The proposed project involves the construction of a new force main from the City’s main lift station to the wastewater treatment plant and the lining of connection points along a two to three block stretch of Hackberry Street. The project will be funded with a combination of CDBG and DNR/SRF funds.
The proposed project activities will take place at two locations within the City and just outside of the City limits. The force main portion of the work will be located along County HWY L36 and then through an existing easement in a field to the City’s wastewater treatment facility. The CIPP lining for connection points will be located in small two to three block area on Hackberry Street and will include less than 1 acre of floodplain.
There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplains and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas.
Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public educational tool. The dissemination of information about floodplains can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk.
Written comments must be received by the City of Correctionville at the following address on or before June 4, 2021. City of Correctionville, 312 Driftwood Street, Correctionville IA 51016, Attention: Carla Mathers, City Clerk. Comments may also be submitted, or further information can be requested, via email at [email protected] A full description of the project may also be reviewed at City Hall (address above) from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday.
