The County of Lexington Does Not Discriminate In Any of Its Programs or Services
These notices shall satisfy two separate but related procedural requirements for activities to be undertaken. The Joint Municipal Water and Sewer Commission (JMWSC), as subrecipient, has completed an Environmental Assessment under the provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act and U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development regulations at 24 CFR Part 58 for a project known as “Old Orangeburg Sewer Upgrade”. The JMWSC intends to use approximately $336,022 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program funds appropriated by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and provided by the County of Lexington to fund the project. The proposal involves replacing approximately 1,250 linear feet of existing 16-inch gravity sewer line with 24-inch gravity sewer line installed along the same alignment in Red Bank, SC. The gravity sewer shares a 40-foot-wide easement with an existing 14-inch force main. No further environmental review of the proposal is to be conducted prior to the Request for Release of Funds.
For additional information please see the full notice:
