Final Public Notice
Posted on 07/21/2022

The City of Statesville has applied for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance (PA) Program funding through the North Carolina Emergency Management (NCEM) as a sub-recipient.

Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), federal actions must be reviewed and evaluated for feasible alternatives and for social, economic, historic, environmental, legal, and safety considerations. Under Executive Order (EO) 11988 and EO 11990, FEMA is required to consider alternatives, and to provide a public notice of any proposed actions in or affecting floodplains or wetlands. EO 12898 also requires FEMA to provide the opportunity for public participation in the planning process and to consider potential impacts to minority and low-income populations. This notice may also fulfill requirements under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).

Funding for the proposed project will be conditional upon compliance with all applicable federal, tribal, state, and local laws, regulations, floodplain standards, permit requirements and conditions.

Sub-Applicant: City of Statesville

Project Title: [187773] South Yadkin River Pump Station; PA-04-NC-4588-PW-00140

Location of Proposed Work:




Date of Construction

South Yadkin River Pump Station




Special Flood Hazard Area Zone:
This project is for repair of a pump station in an AE (1% Annual Chance) flood zone. Confirmation of location in a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) was determined by the Iredell County Effective Flood Insurance Rate Map, Panel Number: (3710474800J,), dated 03/18/2008. The proposed work conforms to all applicable State of North Carolina and local floodplain regulations. The proposed work will be done on existing structures and will have no effect on the local floodplain. The proposed work has the potential to be impacted by flooding in the future but is functionally dependent on its location in the floodplain. The proposed work will not take place in a wetland per the United States Fish and Wildlife Service National Wetlands Inventory but will have no potential to impact or affect wetland values.

Proposed Work and Purpose:
The City of Statesville will utilize contracts to repair two electric panels, breakers, a step-down transformer, and two sold state soft starters at the South Yadkin River Pump Station in-kind within the previous footprint. The purpose of this project is to return function to the damaged pump station that provides sewer services to the City of Statesville.

Project Alternatives:
Alternative #1 (No action alternative): The 'no action' alternative would ultimately result in a negative impact on the City of Statesville as the pump station provides sewer services to the community.

Alternative #2 (Relocation): The sewer pump station must remain within low-lying areas to perform its intended function and, as part of a linear facility, cannot be relocated without causing a realignment of the entire linear facility, which is not economically feasible.

Comment Period:
Comments are solicited from the public; local, state or federal agencies, and other interested parties in order to consider and evaluate the impacts of the proposed project. The comments should be made in writing and addressed to:

FEMA Internal 11988 Reviewer
FEMA Region 4
3005 Chamblee-Tucker Road
Atlanta, Georgia, 30341

Alternatively, comments may be emailed to: [email protected]  Please send comments with the subject line [DR-4588-NC-00140 11988 COMMENT].

All comments are due by no later than 30 days of the posted date of this notice.
