MADISON, Wis. - The village of Blanchardville is an applicant for funding through the Safe Drinking Water Loan Program (SDWLP) to address deficiencies in its public drinking water system. The two projects include the replacement of water mains and upgrading two well houses within the village.
Activities related to both projects are minor actions under Chapter NR 150, Wis. Admin. Code, for which no environmental analysis is required; however, in accordance with the SDWLP federal requirement 40 C.F.R. Section 35.3580, an environmental review must be conducted prior to funding these projects. The SDWLP has determined that the projects will not result in significant adverse environmental effects and no further environmental review or analysis is needed before proceeding with funding the project.
The SDWLP is soliciting public comments regarding this decision and potential environmental impacts of these projects. Written or verbal comments are encouraged. Provide comments to Kevin Olson, Community Financial Assistance, Department of Natural Resources, CF/2 101 S Webster St., P.O. Box 7921, Madison, WI 53707, or (608) 266-9955 by Sept. 26, 2019.
Based on the comments received, the SDWLP may prepare an environmental analysis before proceeding with the funding process. The analysis would summarize the Department of Natural Resources' consideration of the impacts of the projects and reasonable alternatives.
