September 24, 2020

Caldwell County, 110 S. Main Street, Lockhart, TX 78644, (512) 398-1809

This Notice shall satisfy the above-cited three separate but related procedural notification requirements to be undertaken by Caldwell County

To:  All interested Agencies, Groups, and Individuals

REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS

On or about October 12, 2020 Caldwell County will submit a request to the Texas General Land Office (GLO) for the release of Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery Funds (CDBG-DR) under Section 104(f) of Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 as amended, to undertake two projects known as Flood and Drainage Improvements to reconstruct low-water crossings on Political Road and on Witter Road, to reduce flood frequency of the roadways and to repair and stabilize existing pavement damage, structural damage to culverts, and channel erosion due to flooding related to Hurricane Harvey, under GLO Grant No. 20-065-020-C066.   

Project Description Political Road: Removal of existing culvert crossing at Political Road @ Dickerson Creek and replacement with two 10’ X 8’ reinforced concrete box (RCB) culverts; removal of 2 existing 6’ diameter, 32’-long steel container culverts and approximately 400 CY of concrete and roadway embankment; install 2 reinforced concrete headwalls, rock riprap for erosion protection within the channel and banks, and safety guardrails per TxDOT standards.  To stabilize the channel downstream of the crossing, an existing 900 SF, 4’-deep scour hole immediately downstream of the crossing will be filled and stabilized using dry rock riprap. Temporary construction easements for the portion outside of the ROW will be obtained prior to construction in compliance with the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 (42 U.S.C. 4601 et seq.). 

Project Location: Political Road @ Dickerson Creek, Martindale, Caldwell County, TX 78655, (29.768548,-97.784617).   

GLO CDBG-DR funding and estimated total project cost $433,859.06.

Project Description Witter Road: Raise the road profile and upgrade the existing three 43 LF, 60” diameter RCP culverts (i.e. multiple concrete box culverts) to improve existing level of service, reducing frequency of overtopping events and required road closures.  Project will include two new concrete headwalls, channel improvements within the right-of-way (approximately 60 LF), and approximately 100 LF of roadway construction. 

Project Location: Witter Road @ Jerry Creek, Dale, Caldwell County, TX 78616,   (29.902942,-97.622807).

GLO CDBG-DR funding and estimated total project cost $329,550.34.

FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT

Caldwell County has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment; therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required.  Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR).  The ERR will be made available to the public for review either electronically or by U.S. mail.  Please submit your request by U.S. mail to Caldwell County at the address above, or by email to dennis.engelke@co.caldwell.tx.us.  The ERR can be accessed online at the following website http://www.co.caldwell.tx.us/.

FINAL NOTICE AND PUBLIC EXPLANATION OF PROPOSED ACTIVITY IN A FLOODPLAIN AND WETLAND

This is to give notice that Caldwell County under Part 58 has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Order 11988 and 11990 in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management and the Protection of Wetlands.

Political Road: An estimated < 0.1 acre of the 100-Year Floodplain in Zone A, and approximately < 0.1 acre of Riverine Wetland will be affected by project activities.  There are no adverse effects anticipated as the project will replace damaged culvert infrastructure and roadway in this flood-damaged area.  Work will be performed under USACE Nationwide Permits 13 and 14 (Bank Stabilization and Linear Transportation Projects).  Caldwell County has considered the following alternatives and mitigation measures to be taken to minimize adverse impacts and to restore and preserve natural and beneficial values:  1) Taking No Action would incur no construction costs and would cause no construction-related environmental impact but would be unable to address the issue of flooding at this low-water crossing due to storm damage of the road and the impassable condition of this sole ingress/egress to surrounding homes.  2) Alternate locations were not considered as this low water crossing is dangerous and is subject to collapse.  See below for more alternatives.

Witter Road: An estimated <0.46 acres in Zone A of the 100-Year Floodplain, and approximately 0.02 acres of Riverine Wetland will be affected by project activities.  There are no adverse effects anticipated as the project will replace damaged culvert infrastructure and roadway in this flood-damaged area.  Work in the wetland will require the USACE Nationwide Permit 14 for Linear Transportation projects.  Caldwell County has considered the following alternatives and mitigation measures to be taken to minimize adverse impacts and to restore and preserve natural and beneficial values:  1) Taking No Action would incur no construction costs and would cause no construction-related environmental impact but would be unable to address the issue of flooding at this low-water crossing caused by storm damage.  2) Alternate activities for Political Road and Witter Road sites: Traditional Bridge – Benefits of additional hydraulic conveyance capacity were not justified by additional cost. Railcar Bridge – Benefits included additional hydraulic conveyance capacity, expedited construction schedule, and reduced temporary construction access and bypass road easement requirements; however, County opted for traditional culvert design based on community feedback and limited local availability of railcars.   

Mitigation measures for both project sites: BMPs will be employed for wetland protection, including silt fencing, gabions, and no outside fill.  For Political Road, work will be performed under NWP 13, Bank Stabilization (limits are 500’ along bank and 1 CY per running foot) and NWP 14, Linear Transportation Projects (limits are ½ acre in non-tidal waters).  For Witter Road, work will be performed under NWP 14, Linear Transportation Projects (limits are ½ acre in non-tidal waters).  No PCN to the USACE is required for either site.  Mitigation measures for the protection of Migratory Birds will be adhered to.

Caldwell County has reevaluated the alternatives to building in the floodplain and wetland and has determined that it has no practicable alternative.  Environmental files that document compliance with steps 3 through 6 of Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 are available for public inspection, review and copying as outlined in the paragraph of FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT. 

PUBLIC COMMENTS

Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments/objections on the ERR to Caldwell County.  All comments received by October 9, 2020 will be considered by Caldwell County prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Comments must be prepared and submitted via email in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to dennis.engelke@co.caldwell.tx.us or by mail to Caldwell County, 110 S. Main Street, Lockhart, TX 78644 .  Comments should specify which Notice  they are addressing.  Potential objectors should contact Caldwell County via email to verify the actual last day of the objection period. 

ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATION

Caldwell County certifies to the Texas General Land Office that Hoppy Haden, in his capacity as County Judge, consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied.  GLO’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows Caldwell County to use Program funds.

OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS

The Texas General Land Office (GLO) will accept objections to its release of funds and Caldwell County’s certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of Caldwell County; (b) Caldwell County has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR part 58; (c) the grant recipient or other participants in the development process have committed funds, incurred costs or undertaken activities not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by GLO (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality.  Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to the Texas General Land Office, P. O. Box 12873, Austin, TX 78711-2873, ATTN: Heather Lagrone at cdr@recovery.texas.gov.   Potential objectors should contact the GLO to verify the actual last day of the objection period.

AVISO FINAL Y EXPLICACIÓN PÚBLICA DE LA ACTIVIDAD PROPUESTA EN UNA LLANURA Y HUMEDAL

Esto es para notificar que el Condado de Caldwell bajo la Parte 58 ha realizado una evaluación como lo requiere la Orden Ejecutiva 11988 y 11990 de acuerdo con las regulaciones de HUD en 24 CFR 55.20 Subparte C Procedimientos para tomar determinaciones sobre el manejo de llanuras de inundación y la protección de humedales.

Carretera política: Se estima que <0.1 acres de la llanura aluvial de 100 años en la Zona A, y aproximadamente <0.1 acres de Riverine Wetland se verán afectados por las actividades del proyecto. No se prevén efectos adversos ya que el proyecto reemplazará la infraestructura de alcantarilla y la carretera dañadas en esta área dañada por las inundaciones. El trabajo se llevará a cabo bajo los Permisos 13 y 14 de USACE Nationwide (Proyectos de Estabilización Bancaria y Transporte Lineal). El condado de Caldwell ha considerado las siguientes alternativas y medidas de mitigación que se deben tomar para minimizar los impactos adversos y restaurar y preservar los valores naturales y beneficiosos: 1) No tomar acción no incurriría en costos de construcción y no causaría impacto ambiental relacionado con la construcción, pero no podría para abordar el problema de las inundaciones en este cruce de aguas bajas debido a los daños causados ​​por las tormentas en la carretera y la condición intransitable de esta única entrada / salida a las casas circundantes. 2) No se consideraron ubicaciones alternativas ya que este cruce de aguas bajas es peligroso y está sujeto a colapso. Vea a continuación más alternativas.

Witter Road: Se estima que <0.46 acres en la Zona A de la llanura aluvial de 100 años, y aproximadamente 0.02 acres de Riverine Wetland se verán afectados por las actividades del proyecto. No se prevén efectos adversos ya que el proyecto reemplazará la infraestructura de alcantarilla y la carretera dañadas en esta área dañada por las inundaciones. El trabajo en el humedal requerirá el Permiso Nacional 14 de USACE para proyectos de Transporte Lineal. El condado de Caldwell ha considerado las siguientes alternativas y medidas de mitigación que se deben tomar para minimizar los impactos adversos y restaurar y preservar los valores naturales y beneficiosos: 1) No tomar acción no incurriría en costos de construcción y no causaría impacto ambiental relacionado con la construcción, pero no podría para abordar el problema de las inundaciones en este cruce de aguas bajas causado por los daños de la tormenta. 2) Actividades alternativas para los sitios de Political Road y Witter Road: Puente tradicional: los beneficios de la capacidad de transporte hidráulico adicional no se justificaron por un costo adicional. Puente de vagón de ferrocarril: los beneficios incluyeron capacidad de transporte hidráulico adicional, un cronograma de construcción acelerado y una reducción del acceso de construcción temporal y los requisitos de servidumbre de la carretera de desvío; sin embargo, el condado optó por un diseño de alcantarilla tradicional basado en los comentarios de la comunidad y la disponibilidad local limitada de vagones.

Medidas de mitigación para ambos sitios del proyecto: se emplearán BMP para la protección de los humedales, incluidas cercas de limo, gaviones y sin relleno exterior. Para Political Road, el trabajo se realizará según NWP 13, Estabilización de bancos (los límites son 500 ‘a lo largo de la orilla y 1 CY por pie de carrera) y NWP 14, Proyectos de transporte lineal (los límites son ½ acre en aguas sin mareas). Para Witter Road, el trabajo se realizará bajo NWP 14, Proyectos de Transporte Lineal (los límites son ½ acre en aguas sin marea). No se requiere PCN para el USACE para ninguno de los sitios. Se cumplirán las medidas de mitigación para la protección de las aves migratorias.

El condado de Caldwell ha reevaluado las alternativas a la construcción en la llanura aluvial y el humedal y ha determinado que no tiene una alternativa viable. Los archivos ambientales que documentan el cumplimiento de los pasos 3 al 6 de las Órdenes Ejecutivas 11988 y 11990 están disponibles para inspección pública, revisión y copia como se describe en el párrafo de NO HAY IMPACTO SIGNIFICATIVO.
