In accordance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency procedures for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act, a review has been performed relative to the proposed agency action described in this document.

Grantee: Saline County, MO

EPA Grant Amount: $2,000,000

Saline County Required Match: $500,000

Total Project Cost: $2,500,000

 Saline County, Missouri is the intended recipient for a Congressionally Directed Spending grant under the Fiscal Year 2023 Consolidated Appropriations Act {PL 117-328}.-This grant will provide partial funding for a new wastewater treatment facility.

The project consists of the construction of a new two-cell lagoon system that is monitored and controlled through a SCADA system. The proposed project site is approximately 2 acres in size and located on a tract of land adjacent to the Interstate 70 and US Highway 65 interchange.

A review of all potential environmental and historic impacts was conducted by the Economic Development Authority, and a Finding of No Significant Impact was prepared by the state for this project on June 16, 2022. The Economic Development Administration did not identify any significant environmental or historic impacts. After a thorough review of background documentation used to prepare this document, the EPA has determined the EDA and their environmental documents adequately evaluate the potential impacts of the proposed action. In accordance with 40 Code of Federal Regulations 6.200{d}{3}, the EPA is adopting this Agency's Environmental Assessment.

The review did not indicate significant impacts will result from the proposed action. Consequently, a decision has been made that an Environmental Impact Statement will not be prepared.

This action is taken on the basis of a review of the aforementioned environmental documents and

associated environmental clearance information which are on file at the EPA Region 7 office. These are available upon request. The EPA will not take any further action on this project for at least 30 days from the date of issuance of this FONSI. Persons wishing to comment on the above environmental decision during this period may submit comments to Anthony Pham at 913-551-7363 and
