SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The environmental assessment of this 
federally assisted action indicates that the project will not cause 
significant local, regional, or national impacts on the environment. As 
a result of these findings, L. Pete Heard, State Conservationist, has 
determined that the preparation and review of an environmental impact 
statement are not needed for this project.
    The project concerns a watershed plan for the purpose of reducing 
flood damages to urban areas along Webb Creek, a tributary to Dry 
Creek. The planned works of improvement consist of one floodwater 
retarding structure located on Webb Creek.
    The Notice of a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) has been 
forwarded to the Environmental Protection Agency and to various 
Federal, State, and local agencies and interested parties. A limited 
number of copies of the FONSI are available to fill single copy 
requests at the above address. Basic data developed during the 
environmental assessment are on file and may be reviewed by contacting 
L. Pete Heard. No administrative action on implementation of the 
proposal will be taken until 30 days after the date of this publication 
in the Federal Register.

(This activity is listed in the Catalog of Federal Domestic 
Assistance under No. 10.904--Watershed Protection and Flood 
Prevention and is subject to the provisions of Executive Order 12372 
which requires intergovernmental consultation with State and local 
officials)
