Early Notice and Public Review of a Proposed Activity in a 100-Year Floodplain

Activity in a 100-Year Floodplain

To: All interested Agencies - Federal, State, and Local - Groups and Individuals
This is to give notice that the City of Middleton under CFR 24 Part 58 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/or wetland will have on the human environment for a Community Development Block Grant under HUD Grant Number B-19-DC-47-0001. The City of Middleton will implement a sewer system improvement project that will address the problem of deteriorated force main, which transports raw sewage from the five lift stations to the treatment plant, by replacing several linear feet of existing deteriorated cast iron force main with PVC, throughout the collection system. A small portion of the project may take place within a floodplain. The proposed project(s) is located in the City of Middleton, Hardeman County.
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 Middleton at the following address on or before October 25, 2019: City of Middleton, P.O. Box 40, Middleton, TN 38052 and 731-376-8409, Attention: Jackie Cox, Mayor. Comments may also be submitted or further information can be requested via email at cityofmidd@comcast.net.
