Final Notice and Public Explanation of a Proposed Activity in the 100-Year Floodplain and Wetland
January 26, 2023
Town of Campbellton
2345 Highway 2
Campbellton, FL 32426
(850) 263-4535
To: All Interested Agencies, Groups, and Individuals
This is to give notice that the Town of Campbellton under Part 58 has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management and Wetlands Protection to determine the potential affect that the activity in the floodplain and/or wetland will have on the environment. The activity is funded by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program under Part 58 (grant #M0114).
The purpose of the proposed project is to make improvements to its stormwater infrastructure to address flooding issues. Project activities will include, but not be limited to, the construction of stormwater management facilities, installation and replacement of drainage pipes and culverts, and ditch stabilization and widening. The proposed project activities will occur at SR 2, Wilmington Court, Osceola Ave, New Bethel Rd, Rail Street, and Quarters Court. Approximately 1 acre of Wetlands may be impacted.
The Town of Campbellton has considered the following alternatives and mitigation measures to be taken to minimize adverse impacts and to restore and preserve natural and beneficial values: (i) The proposed locations of the improvements should be constructed in the floodplains/wetlands because it is the most advantageous locations and are within already disturbed utility rights-of-way, (ii) Alternatives considered are to (1) Reduce the number of acres for proposed stormwater facilities to minimize impacts but then potential improvements to reduce flooding will also be minimized, (2) Reduce the number of ditches and cross drains to be improved, but the potential improvements to reduce flooding on roadways will also be minimized, and (3) move the project outside the wetlands but deviations to the proposed locations could create disturbances in locations not already disturbed by existing utilities and could be impractical for construction and maintenance of stormwater facilities. The Town has also considered the No Action alternative and determined that no action on the project would leave the present problems with flooding unresolved which has the potential to create significant impacts on the natural environment downgradient.
Town of Campbellton has reevaluated the alternatives to building in the floodplain/wetland and has determined that the only and best alternative is to continue with the project as presently planned and located. As much as practicable, project plans will be designed to reduce the number of floodplains and/or wetlands disturbed. During the construction phase, all activity relevant to stormwater management will be mitigated by erecting silt fencing around the project areas to mitigate erosion and contamination. All permits from environmental regulatory agencies will be obtained for the project. Environmental files that document compliance with steps 3 through 6 of [Executive Order 11988 and/or 11990], are available for public inspection, review and copying upon request Monday through Thursday, from 9:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. at Town Hall, 2345 Highway 2, Campbellton, FL 32426.
There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplains/wetlands and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas. Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public educational tool. The dissemination of information and request for public comment about floodplains/wetlands can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks and impacts associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains/wetlands, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk.
Written comments must be received by Helen Rhynes, Town Clerk at 2345 Highway 2, Campbellton, FL 32426, (850) 263-4535 by February 3, 2023. A full description of the project may also be reviewed Monday through Thursday, from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm at Town Hall, 2345 Highway 2, Campbellton, FL 32426. Comments may also be submitted via email at [email protected].

Final Notice and Public Explanation of a Proposed Activity in the
100-Year Floodplain and Wetland
Date of Publication: January 26, 2023
Name of Responsible Entity: Town of Grand Ridge
Address: 2086 Porter Avenue,
P.O. Box 180
Grand Ridge, Florida 32442
Contact: Amanda Applewhite, Town Clerk
Telephone Number: (850) 592-4621.
To: All Interested Agencies, Groups, and Individuals
This is to give notice that the Town of Grand Ridge has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management and Wetlands Protection to determine the potential effect that the activity in the floodplain and/or wetland will have on the environment. The activity is funded by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program under subgrant agreement number M0117.
Service Area (SA) #1 – Sanitary Sewer Hardening and Resiliency Service Area:
03J Sewer Line Replacement: The Town of Grand Ridge’s Sanitary Sewer Collection System is dependent on nineteen (19) aging lift stations to pump effluent away from homes and businesses in Grand Ridge and to the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). The pumps and electrical components in these lift stations are nearing the end of their useful life expectancy. Replacement parts for these lift stations are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain. None of the nineteen (19) Sanitary Sewer lift stations are currently equipped with emergency electrical generators or SCADA communications.
The Town of Grand Ridge will utilize $7,508,451.00 in CDBG Disaster Recovery assistance, under Round Two of the Rebuild Florida General Infrastructure Repair Program, to harden and equip its Sanitary Sewer System to be resilient and remain fully operational during future hurricanes, significant storm events and other disasters causing the loss of power to the Town’s critical sanitary sewer infrastructure facilities. This project will ensure the health, safety and welfare for the residents of the Town of Grand Ridge, as well as for the essential Town staff working toward recovery in the aftermath of such events.
The Town will utilize its CDBG Disaster Recovery assistance to address the inadequacies of the Sanitary Sewer System by installing nineteen (19) new fixed by-pass pumps/emergency electrical generators at the Sanitary Sewer Lift Stations and an additional by-pass pump /emergency electrical generator at the WWTP. By rehabilitating all nineteen (19) of the same Sanitary Sewer Lift Stations, replacing the necessary components that include but are not limited to the aging pumps, controls, and linings, and by rehabilitating the equipment at the Wastewater Treatment Plant that was impacted by Hurricane Michael. Additionally, the Town will utilize its CDBG Disaster Recovery assistance to install a system-wide SCADA system that will allow the Public Works staff to remotely monitor and operate the Sanitary Sewer System without placing themselves in danger during and in the aftermath of natural disasters and other unanticipated events.
The beneficiaries for the Flood and Drainage construction activity in SA #1 are the 929 persons residing in the 397 households within Service Area #1. A random sample service area door to door survey of the Town’s sanitary sewer customers Service Area was conducted. The results are the area is 75.89% Low and Moderate income (LMI). The project, if constructed, will greatly enhance the quality of life for the LMI households being served by the Town’s sanitary sewer system.
The wastewater treatment plant is not located in a floodplain or a wetland. While a number of the 19 lift stations are in close proximity to a flood zone, none are located within the 100-year flood plain. A portion of the proposed activities in Service Area #1 will be carried out within a wetland. Approximately .05 acres of land located within a Palustrine Forested Deciduous Semi Permanently Flooded Wetland (PF06F) wetland will be included in the construction area for Lift Station Number Two which is located at the southernmost end of Shadow Bay Drive.

Activity CDBG Cost Local Match Total
03J Sewer Line
Replacement: $6,514,843.00 $0.00 $6,514,843.00
03J Engineering $618,186.00 $0.00 $618,186.00
21A Administration $375,422.00 $0.00 $375,422.00
Totals: $7,508,451.00 $0.00 $7,508,451.00
These activities will have no significant impact on the environment for the following reason:
The Town of Grand Ridge has evaluated alternatives to rehabilitating Lift Station Number Two where it resides, 36 feet from the outer edge of a PF06F wetland. The Town considered alternatives to conducting the work slightly inside a wetland. One option considered was to relocate Lift Station Number Two closer to Shadow Bay Drive, however, the Town determined that this option is not a practicable alternative as it would bring the lift station closer to the road allowing for potential damage from vehicular accidents, would make it more visible and noisier to the neighboring residents, and would incur unnecessary additional costs for relocating the entire lift station. A second alternative option was considered that would relocate the lift station to a different site altogether. This option would not be feasible as the Town would be required to purchase a separate parcel of property in close proximity to the existing lift station to properly operate and move the effluent that the existing lift station is currently handling. Environmental files that document compliance with steps 3 through 6 of Executive Order 11988 and or 11990, are available for public inspection, review and copying upon request at the times and location delineated in the last paragraph of this notice for receipt of comments.
Although a small portion of the project will be located in a wetland, the Town believes that the current location improvements cannot be undertaken in any other location due to the scope of the project. There is, therefore, no practicable alternative than to continue with the project.
The proposed improvements conform to applicable floodplain and wetlands protection standards. The proposed action will not affect natural or beneficial floodplain and/or wetland values, and residents of the community will benefit from the project.
There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplains and or wetlands and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas.  Commenters are encouraged to offer alternative sites outside of the floodplain and or wetlands, alternative methods to serve the same project purpose, and methods to minimize and mitigate impacts. Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public educational tool. The dissemination of information and request for public comment about floodplains and or wetlands can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks and impacts associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains and or wetlands, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk.
Some additional impervious areas may be created in the Service Areas included in this project.  In the case where new impervious surfaces are being created, storm drainage improvements will be included in the design and construction of the project to offset the impact of the additional impervious surfaces being created.
Written comments must be received by Amanda Applewhite, Town Clerk, at P.O. Box 180, Grand Ridge, Florida 32442, or by telephone at (850) 592-4621.on or before
February 6, 2023. A full description of the project may also be reviewed from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm CT, Monday through Friday at 2086 Porter Avenue.

100-Year Floodplain and Wetland
January 26, 2023
Town of Alford
1768 Georgia St.
Alford, Florida 32420
(850) 579-4684
To: All Interested Agencies, Groups, and Individuals
This is to give notice that the Town of Alford has conducted an evaluation as required by Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 in accordance with HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 Subpart C Procedures for Making Determinations on Floodplain Management and Wetlands Protection to determine the potential affect that the activity in the floodplain and/or wetland will have on the environment. The activity is funded by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program (Grant No. M0108) and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (Grant No. WG047).
The proposed project will provide public sanitary sewer service to the residential and commercial population of the Town of Alford via gravity feed and force main. This will assist in eliminating the existing on-site sewage and disposal systems which historically have failed resulting in potential groundwater contamination. Wastewater will be transmitted via US231 and Kynesville Hwy. to the City of Marianna Wastewater Treatment system. Further, implementation of this project will protect Stump Creek which ultimately drains into the Chipola River, an Outstanding Florida Water Body. Less than 20 acres of floodplain and wetlands will be impacted by the project. It is anticipated all work will be completed within existing previously disturbed public right-of-way.

The Town of Alford has considered the following alternatives and mitigation measures to be taken to minimize adverse impacts and to restore and preserve natural and beneficial values: Impacts to floodplain/wetland is expected to be minimal. Boring under floodplain/wetlands is a potential measure to greatly reduce impacts. Again, project will be constructed within previously disturbed public right-of-way therefore no impact to flora/fauna, historical/cultural is anticipated.
The Town of Alford has reevaluated the alternatives to building in the Zone A/Wetlands and has determined that it has no practicable alternative due to the scope of the project. Environmental files that document compliance with steps 3 through 6 of [Executive Order 11988 and/or 11990], are available for public inspection, review and copying upon request at the times and location delineated in the last paragraph of this notice for receipt of comments.
There are three primary purposes for this notice.  First, people who may be affected by activities in Zone A and wetlands and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment should be given an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas.  Second, an adequate public notice program can be an important public educational tool. The dissemination of information and request for public comment about floodplain/wetlands can facilitate and enhance Federal efforts to reduce the risks and impacts associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the Federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains/wetlands, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk.
Written comments must be received on or before close of business February 8, 2023 and directed to George Gay, Mayor – 1768 Georgia St. – Alford, FL 32420 or by phone at (850) 579-4684. A full description of the project may also be reviewed from the Alford Town Hall located at 1768 Georgia St. – Alford, FL. between the hours of 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM, CST.
