Date: October 11, 2019
Lead agency: Town of Twisp
Agency Contact: Kurt Danison, email@example.com, Town of Twisp, P.O. Box 278, Twisp, WA 98856, 509 997 4081
Agency File Number: TWPSEPA 19-01
This Determination of Non-Significance is issued for the 2019 Town of Twisp General Sewer Plan (GSP) and for the improvements identified within the GSP. The GSP evaluation the Town’s existing collection system; biosolids treatment, storage and disposal methods; and, the river outfall. The improvements selected in the GSP include: 1) Sewer Collection System Improvements; and, 2) Biosolids Processing Improvements.
The Sewer Collection System Improvements include replacing and rehabilitating the most critical and highest priority sewer collection problem areas within the Town’s system. Depending on the defect, the essential project components consist of a combination of spot repairs (approx. 35 each), manhole sealing (approx. 50 each), and lining existing reaches (approx. 4,100 linear feet); for the most severe reaches, complete sewer main replacement (approx. 2,000 linear feet) including manholes, service connections, pavement restoration (approx.. 20,000 square feet), and appurtenances. Three lift stations will be upgraded. No materials expansions for changes of use are proposed as a result of the Sewer Collection System Improvements.
Biosolids Processing Improvements include retrofitting the existing sludge handling building to include a new screw press and feed skid (including control panel, floc tank, polymer system and feed pump), and construction of an extension to the building for storage of dewatered solids.
The Town of Twisp has determined that this proposal will not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment. An environmental impact statement (EIS) is not required under RCW 43.21C.030(2)(c). We have reviewed the Environmental Checklist, GSP and appurtenant information. This information is available at Twisp Town Hall.
This determination is based on the following findings and conclusions:
The General Sewer Plan, planned projects and SEPA checklist provide sufficient information to conclude that adoption of the plan is a non-project action and implementation of the Sewer Collection System Improvements and Biosolids Processing Improvements will not have an adverse effect on the environment.
This DNS is issued under WAC 197-11-340(2) and the comment/appeal period will end on November 20, 2019. Comments and/or appeals must be made in writing to Randy Kilmer, Town Clerk, firstname.lastname@example.org, Town of Twisp, P.O. Box 278, Twisp, WA 98856, 509 997 4081.
