NOTICE TO ALL INTERESTED PERSONS
DETERMINATION OF CATEGORICAL EXCLUSION
TO: All Interested Persons
DATE ISSUED: June 20, 2018
The State of Maine, Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), has issued a categorical exclusion in compliance with the State of Maine’s Chapter 595, Section C of the Clean Water State Revolving Fund rules and Chapter 230, Section 6 of the Drinking Water Revolving Fund rules, on behalf of the Southwest Harbor Water & Sewer District to exempt a proposed joint utility project from the substantive environmental review requirements.
The proposed action is replacement/ installation, with appurtenances, of approximately 1,800’ of water main, 1,000’ of sewer main and services, relining of 1,600 of sewer main, 1,600’ of storm drain on Cedar Lane, Clark Point Road, Shore Road, Claremont Road, and Kings Lane. The project also includes 8,300 SY of roadway reclamation and all incidentals associated with the utility and road work in Southwest Harbor, Maine.
A review of the proposed action by the DHHS as Lead Agency has indicated that it meets the criteria for a Categorical Exclusion. Specifically, the proposed utility project is directed solely toward existing utility replacement. This exclusion may be revoked at any time if any of the criteria used for its issuance are violated.
Further records in regard to the project are on file and are available for public review at the Southwest Harbor Water & Sewer District, Southwest Harbor and at the offices of the DHHS, Drinking Water Program, 286 Water Street, Augusta, Maine. Comments relative to this decision may be submitted to the District or DHHS within fifteen days.
