After the September 2013 flood, an emergency declaration by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) allowed the City to obtain public assistance grant funding to construct parts of the project.
The grant required that the project go through an environmental review process established by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). This review process ensures planning and decision-making gives equal consideration to environmental factors (such as physical, biological, social and cultural), as well as financial and technical factors.
The public review and comment period was from March 30 to April 29, 2016.
FEMA has issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) on the Environmental Assessment (EA) that was submitted for the Resilient St. Vrain project.
Full copies of the FONSI and the Final Environmental Assessment (FEA), including all appendices, are provided below.
