DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE Rural Development Coleman: Notice of Finding of No Significant Impact AGENCY: Rural Utilities Service, USDA ACTION: Notice of Finding of No Significant Impact. SUMMARY: The Rural Utilities Service (RUS) has made a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) with respect to a request for possible financing assistance to City of Coleman for the construction of the Water Treatment Plant in Coleman County, TX. FURTHER INFORMATION: To obtain copies of the EA and FONSI, or for further information, contact: John M. Powell, Area Director, (325) 201-9840. The EA and FONSI are also available for public review at 4400 Buffalo Gap Road, Suite 4150, Abilene, TX 79606. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The proposed project consists of installing a new 4.0 million gallon per day micro-filtration plant to replace the existing treatment plant. Alternatives considered by RUS and City of Coleman include: No action; considerations were made to different types of treatment technologies. The alternatives are discussed in the City of Coleman EA. The RUS has reviewed and approved the EA for the proposed project. The availability of the EA for public review was announced via notice in the following newspaper(s): Coleman Chronicle on October 12 and October 19, 2016. A 15-day comment period was announced in the newspaper notice(s). The EA was also available for public review at the USDA Rural Development office and website as well as City of Coleman’s offices. No public comments were received. Based on its EA, commitments made by City of Coleman, and no public comments received, RUS has concluded that the project would have no significant impact (or no impacts) to water quality, wetlands, floodplains, land use, aesthetics, transportation, or human health and safety. The proposed project will have no adverse effect on resources listed or eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. The Agency has also concluded that the proposed project is not likely to affect federally listed threatened and endangered species or designated critical habitat thereof. The proposed project would not disproportionately affect minority and/or low-income populations. No other potential significant impacts resulting from the proposed project have been identified. Therefore, RUS has determined that this FONSI fulfills its obligations under the National Environmental Policy Act, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR §§ 1500- 1508), and USDA Rural Development's Environmental Policies and Procedures (7 CFR Part 1970) for its action related to the project. RUS is satisfied that the environmental impacts of the proposed project have been adequately addressed. RUS’s federal action would not result in significant impacts to the quality of the human environment, and as such it will not prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for its action related to the proposed project.

Call 811 Before You Dig: It is the Law!
Calling 811 Reduces Risk of Damaged Utility Lines by 99 Percent
DALLAS (August 11, 2016) – Did you know that, before you dig, it is required by law to call 811 to have all buried utility lines located and marked? Atmos Energy wants to thank homeowners and excavators alike for observing the law and keeping our communities safe by always calling 811 before digging.
Since 2008, Atmos Energy has seen a 36 percent increase in requests by the public to have underground natural gas lines marked. Once underground utility lines are marked, it is important to take special care around all line markings by digging by hand.
“The greatest risk to our natural gas pipelines is accidental damage while digging,” said John Paris, president of Atmos Energy’s Mid-Tex division.“Even minor damage, such as a scrape, dent, or crease in a pipeline or its coating, can cause a leak.”
Every time the excavating public calls 811 before digging, the chance of hitting an underground utility line decreases to 99.9 percent. When calling 811, homeowners and contractors are connected to their local one-call center, which notifies the appropriate utility companies of their intent to dig. Professional locators are then sent to the digging site to mark the locations of underground utility-owned lines with flags and spray paint, free of charge.
located 1.5 million underground natural gas lines in 2015. We
appreciate our customers observing this important safety law.
Calling 811 is the law in every state that we serve. All excavators
call 811 at least three business days before digging on public or
private property,” said Paris.
