An Environmental Assessment was developed in coordination with the sponsoring local organization (Lyons Creek Watershed Joint District No. 41) for a proposed floodwater retarding dam in the Lyons Creek Watershed to reduce flood damages downstream of the site. Upon consideration of the affected environment, alternatives, environmental consequences, and comments and coordination with concerned public and agencies, the State Conservationist for NRCS, Kansas found that based on the significance and context and intensity as defined in 40 Code of Federal Records (CFR) part 1508.27, that the proposed action is not a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. Thus, a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) is being made.
For further information relating to the project action, please refer to the Environmental Assessment. No administrative action on implementation of the proposed action will be taken until 15 days after the date of publication of the Notice of Availability in the local news media.
