The USDA, Rural Development has received an application for financial assistance from the City of Cove, Oregon. As required by the National Environmental Policy Act, Rural Development has approved an Environmental Assessment prepared by Anderson Perry & Associates, Inc. that evaluated the potential environmental effects and consequences of the proposed project. This notice announces the availability of the Environmental Assessment for public review and comment.
The proposed wastewater system improvement project consisting of an effluent pipeline, irrigation storage ponds, and irrigation pipeline is west and northwest of the City of Cove in Union County, Oregon. The project is located in Township 3 South, Range 40 East, Sections 7, 17, and 18, Willamette Meridian. The project is designed to meet current and future wastewater needs and bring the City into compliance with Oregon Department of Environmental Quality regulations. Environmental impacts resulting from this project include farmland conversion of less than 30 acres, resulting in a farm impact rating of 110 (not requiring mitigation) and permanent fill of 0.21 acre of manmade wetlands that will be mitigated. The alternatives considered to the proposed project include:
The project will include wetland area fill of 0.21 acre resulting from construction of the irrigation storage ponds. Four hundred eighty-seven (487) feet of the ditch will be rerouted approximately 100 feet from the original location, in upland soils, and will improve the wetland conditions by creating an additional 0.206 acre of wetland ditch for a total of 0.416 acre of mitigated wetland.
