INITIAL PUBLIC NOTICE: Dated April 26th, 2023- Generators for Critical Water Facilities in the City of Leavenworth

Chelan County Natural Resources Department has applied for HMGP-Post Fire Recovery grant funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to fund the purchase of emergency backup generators to support critical water facilities in the City of Leavenworth; with matching funds provided by the City of Leavenworth and Washington Emergency Management Division.  Pursuant to 44 CFR Part 9.12, FEMA gives early notice under Executive Order (EO) 11988, Floodplain Management or EO 11990, Wetland Protection; since this action is located in or affects the floodplain or may affect wetlands.   

The project site is located in or affects the floodplain of the Wenatchee and/or Icicle Rivers. The purpose of the project is to acquire three emergency back-up generators to support the uninterrupted use of critical water facilities in the City of Leavenworth and perform all electrical upgrades and fuel system installation necessary to support the use of said generators. The proposed action includes: The purchase of three diesel powered emergency back-up generators and the installation of automatic transfer switches at three different critical water facilities within or operated by the City of Leavenworth. An on-site fuel source, concrete pad, security fencing and a weather enclosure would also be established for each generator as part of the proposed action. This project will ensure the uninterrupted use of the City’s water treatment facility, well field and booster water distribution system in the event of power loss.

Comments concerning the proposed action will be accepted from the affected public; local, state and federal agencies; and other interested parties in order to consider and evaluate alternatives and the environmental impacts of the proposed action.  Comments should be made in writing, sent to the point of contact listed below, and postmarked within 30 days of publication of this notice.
