 94363 - Sewer Line Break

Location of Proposed Work:    Start: (38.628846, -85.109342) End: (38.628071, -85.109986)

# 21041C0088E dated 12/21/2017.                               

  Proposed Work/Purpose:       Repair of sewer line and horizontal boring under the Kentucky River to bury the sewer line and prevent future similar damage.

Project Alternatives:

The following alternatives were considered:

  1. Relocation of the facilities outside the floodplain – There are no practicable alternatives to locating the proposed actions outside the floodplain as the road is functionally dependent of its location. The damages to the facilities are limited in scope and the cost of relocation would likely outweigh the cost to repair the damages at the current location.
  2. No action alternative – This alternative is not feasible as the repairs are necessary to ensure that the road remains operational and in the current location to perform its designed function. The road provides ingress/egress, services and emergency access from and to the area communities. With the no action alternative, continued negative impacts may be experienced.

Comments:                             This will serve as the final public notice regarding the abovedescribed action funded by the FEMA PA program.
