Download as PDF 27795 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 94 / Wednesday, May 14, 2008 / Notices consist of raising the top of dam 3.5 feet, extending the back toe of the embankment to maintain a 3:1 slope, installation of an additional principal spillway (24″ hooded inlet type), installation of a foundation drain system along the back toe of the embankment, lowering the crest elevation of the auxiliary spillway 0.4 feet, installing a splitter dike in the auxiliary spillway and realigning the entrance section of the auxiliary spillway. An impact basin that will serve both principal spillway outlets will be added to replace the existing plunge pool. All disturbed areas will be planted to adapted native and/ or introduced species. The proposed work will not have a significant affect on any prime farmland, endangered or threatened species, wetlands, or cultural resources. Federal assistance will be provided under authority of the Small Watershed Rehabilitation Amendments of 2000 (Section 313, Pub. L. 106–472). Total project cost is estimated to be $2,383,400, of which $1,693,800 will be paid from the Small Watershed Rehabilitation funds and $689,600 from local funds. The notice of a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) has been forwarded to the Environmental Protection Agency and to various Federal, State, and local agencies and interested parties. A limited number of copies of the FONSI are available to fill single copy requests at the above address. Basic data developed during the environmental assessment are on file and may be reviewed by contacting Donald W. Gohmert, State Conservationist. No administrative action on implementation of the proposal will be taken until 30 days after the date of this publication in the Federal Register. Dated: April 28, 2008. Donald W.
