SRF Project No. FS010175-01

The Alabama Department of Environmental Management has made $1,000,000 in financial assistance available to the West Lawrence Water Authority using funds from the FY 2020 Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) loan program.  In accordance with State and Federal regulations that govern the program, the Alabama Department of Environmental Management has conducted a review to assess the potential impacts upon the environment that may result from implementation of this project.

The West Lawrence Water Authority proposes a project to provide improved reliability within the distribution system.  The proposed project will consist of installing a new water line from the City of Moulton Water Treatment Plant (WTP) to the West Lawrence purchase meter on Lawrence County Road 240, upgrade existing water line to Loosier Tank, upgrade existing water line from south of the City of Moulton WTP to Lawrence County Road 460 pump station, installation of a new booster pump station and SCADA. Completion of this proposed project will provide a more reliable water service between the West Lawrence Water Authority and the City of Moulton. 

The Alabama Department of Environmental Management has determined that the project will not have a significant adverse impact on the environment and consequently is herewith issuing a Finding Of No Significant Impact (FONSI) to support the use of DWSRF funds for the construction of the proposed project. However, this decision may be reconsidered if significant adverse information concerning the potential environmental impacts of the project is discovered. Attached is an Environmental Assessment that details the proposed project and its impact upon the environment.

Comments relative to this project should be submitted in writing to Mrs. Chavon R. Jones, SRF Section, Permits & Services Division, Alabama Department of Environmental Management, P.O. Box 301463, Montgomery, Alabama 36130, no later than 30 days after the date of this public notice.  The Alabama Department of Environmental Management will not take formal action to proceed with the project without carefully evaluating any public comments opposing the project.

Notice is hereby given this 9th day of February, 2021, by authorization of the Alabama Department of Environmental Management.
