One of the requirements for the Drinking Water funding package for Wallsburg Town's water system improvement project is to conduct an Environmental Assessment. That has been completed by Dao Yang with Sunrise Engineering and the Drinking Water Division now needs to issue a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for public notice. Per Utah State requirements, the FONSI notice will be published in the local newspaper (Wasatch Wave) on Wednesday November 22nd and Wednesday November 29th. The environmental Assessment will also be available for public review in person at the Wallsburg Town Hall, on the Wallsburg Town website, or digitally as requested via email. The Finding Of No Significant Impact public notice opens a 30-day formal public comment period (beginning Wednesday November 22nd and ending Friday December 22nd), and Wallsburg Town will hold one public meeting during this comment period (Tuesday December 5th 7:00pm) to accept comments. All public comments received, oral and written (PO Box 52 Wallsburg, UT 84082 or wallsburgtownclerk@gmail.com), shall be recorded and provided to the Drinking Water Division for the project file. If there are no comments, expiration of the 30-day comment period ends the environmental review process.
