TO INTERESTED PARTIES

 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Regional Planning and Environmental Center, in coordination with the City of Yukon, Oklahoma, has assessed the environmental impacts associated with the proposed construction of 1.35 miles of 12" water transmission pipeline, a water storage tank facility, and the replacement of sanitary sewer lines in the Ranchwood Hills residential community in the City of Yukon, Canadian County, Oklahoma.  The project purpose is to improve the existing City of Yukon water supply distribution system to meet current and future demand, and to replace aging infrastructure in a 40-year old residential development.  This is a Water Resource Development Authority Section 219 (Environmental Infrastructure) Project, authorized in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2001 in Section 108.  The City of Yukon, Oklahoma is the local sponsor for this proposed project.

A Final Environmental Assessment (EA) for this action, prepared by the Triad Design Group on behalf of the City of Yukon, is available on the Tulsa District website at: http://www.swt.usace.army.mil/ at the NEPA Notices icon midway down the page.

This environmental assessment was prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, including guidelines in 33 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 230, Policy and Procedures for Implementing NEPA.  It has been determined that this action will cause no significant adverse impact on the natural or human environment.  A copy of the signed Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) is available at the link provided above.

Any additional questions regarding this project should be directed to Ms. Diane Abernathy (Triad Design Group, 3020 NW 149th Street, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma  73134, telephone: 405-919-0481, email: dabernathy@triaddesigngroup.com), or to Dr. David Gade at 918-669-7579.
