Public Notice for Early Public Review
Town of Tamworth, New Hampshire
The Town of Tamworth, New Hampshire is proposing to expend federal funds in an area that is near to a stream/river/floodplain/wetland as identified by the Federal Emergency Management Administration. The subject funds are Community Development Block Grant funds administered by NH Community Development Finance Authority. The Town of Tamworth will be identifying and evaluating practicable alternatives to locating the action near a stream/river/floodplain/wetland and the potential impacts on the area from the proposed action, 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 Floodway Management and Protection of Wetlands.
The Town of Tamworth, New Hampshire, is proposing to undertake the following activities in the area: emergency repairs to the Tamworth Village Association’s Community Wastewater Treatment System. In spring 2016, it was discovered that the 4 leach fields off Chocorua Road had effluent on surface and that the fields were failing. Currently, the failing leach beds pose an immediate health and safety risk to residents as the fields are not functioning properly. The proposed project is the replacement of the fields in place. The project is located near a stream/river/floodplain/wetland.
The purpose of this notice is to give an early opportunity for interested agencies, persons or groups to comment on the proposed action. The Town of Tamworth is desirous of considering any feasible alternatives or adjustments to the anticipated project which might minimize any potential adverse effects near a stream/river/floodplain/wetland as a result of the project. The Town of Tamworth has additional information concerning this project available for public review, emailing and copying, upon request, at the Town of Tamworth, 84 Main Street, Tamworth, NH 03886.
