FEMA Public Notice

Click to view and print the public notice (PDF).

The City of Jacksonville has applied for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance (PA) Program funding through North Carolina Emergency Management (NCEM) as a sub-recipient.

Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), federal actions must be reviewed and evaluated for feasible alternatives and for social, economic, historic, environmental, legal, and safety considerations. Under Executive Order (EO) 11988 and EO 11990, FEMA is required to consider alternatives, and to provide a public notice of any proposed actions in or affecting floodplains or wetlands. EO 12898 also requires FEMA to provide the opportunity for public participation in the planning process and to consider potential impacts to minority and low-income populations. This notice may also fulfill requirements under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). 

Funding for the proposed project will be conditional upon compliance with all applicable federal, tribal, state, and local laws, regulations, floodplain standards, permit requirements and conditions. 

Sub-Applicant: City of Jacksonville
Project Title: 77284 – Jacksonville Street Sinkholes Damage; PA-04-NC-4393-PW-02637 

Special Flood Hazard Area Zone 

This project is for the repair and replacement of the City of Jacksonville’s multiple damaged streets and culverts. All work is located in an Unshaded X, Shaded X, AE Zone, or Floodway. Confirmation of location in a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) was determined by the Onslow County Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map, Panel Numbers: 3720436700K, 3720437700K, 3720437600K, 3720438700K, 3720439700K, 3720438600K, 3720439600K, & 3720437800K, dated 06/30/2016. The proposed work conforms to all applicable State of North Carolina and local floodplain regulations. There is a potential for the facility to be impacted by future flooding events due to its location within the AE Zone and Floodway. The proposed work will not take place in wetlands per the United States Fish and Wildlife Service National Wetlands Inventory and will have little potential to impact or affect wetland values. 

Proposed Work and Purpose 

The City of Jacksonville utilized force account labor, equipment, and materials for repairs to multiple road and stormwater culvert sinkhole damage sites to restore these systems to pre-disaster function and capacity within their existing footprints. Repairs consisted of repairing catch basins, 13 reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) culverts, and a concrete junction box as well as removal and replacement for asphalt, unclassified fill, ABC stone, and concrete curbing/gutters. Five damaged RCP culverts were replaced with HDPE culverts using current Codes & Standards. These improvements will increase the resiliency and useful life of the stormwater system while minimizing the impacts of flooding on human health and safety.

Project Alternatives 

Alternative #1 (No action): The ’no action’ alternative would ultimately result in a negative impact on the City of Jacksonville. If the damage is not repaired, then adverse economic and social impacts may occur. 

Alternative #2 (Repair in-kind): Repairing the streets and culverts without minimization measures may result in similar damages from future events. If similar damages occur again, it would cause adverse economic and social impacts.
