Availability of Draft Finding of No Significant Impact

Proposed Wolf Creek Dam Intake Valve and Enclosure Replacement and Oxygenation System, Barberton, Ohio

To all interested parties, this is notification that a draft Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposed Wolf Creek Dam Intake Valve and Enclosure Replacement located in Barberton, Ohio are available for review and comment.  The project plans to replace the aged and deteriorating intake valve and valve enclosure structure in the Wolf Creek Dam that forms the city’s water supply reservoir.  Additional associated work includes extending the intake pipe farther into the reservoir to draw less turbid water and constructing an oxygenation system to improve water quality throughout the reservoir.

The project will include: 

1. Intake extension and valve replacement (eligible components funded partially
    with the federal appropriation; remaining costs funded with city funds or WSRLA
    assistance):

a.  Removal of sediment at intake area (approximately 20 cubic yards).

b.  Removal and valves and replacement with butterfly valves in the dam valve
    structure and installation of an interconnection between the two intake pipes.

c. Modifications to the intake screen (trash rack) at the dam.

d. Installation of approximately 600 feet of 24-inch diameter intake extension
    pipe into the reservoir.

e. Installation of a new intake crib with screen at the end of the new intake pipe.

f. Repair of the valve intake structure and installation of a new fence enclosure.

g. Minor concrete repairs to the dam structure.

h. Removal of vegetation from the dam spillway and re-setting of rip-rap that has
    been loosened by root growth.

2. The contract requires delivery of 3-8 million gallons of reservoir water to the WTP
    daily during construction. 

3. Reservoir oxygenation system installation including a building, power, equipment,
    piping, and other related improvements located along the reservoir shore (bid as a
    separate contract and funded entirely with WSRLA assistance):

a. Construction of a 20’x24’ building to house oxygenation equipment, piping,
    intake pumps, and controls.

b. Construction of intake piping to supply reservoir water to the oxygenation
    equipment

c. Installation of four, 4” diameter oxygenation lines totaling approximately 1,300
    linear feet to serve four oxygenation zones on the reservoir bottom.

d. Construction of oxygenation building site access and security fencing.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) is proposing to grant Congressionally-designated funds to assist this improvement project.  The sponsor of this project, City of Barberton, has applied for that Federal money from USEPA.  As part of the grant application process, USEPA is submitting the draft FONSI, EA, and associated documentation for public comment, pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.  Based upon our review, the draft FONSI states that the proposed project’s implementation will not significantly impact the environment or have an adverse effect on cultural resources/historic properties, if any, located within the project area.  USEPA’s draft FONSI is based on environmental analysis document provided by Ohio EPA in the Environmental Information Document, which was prepared by Dan Halterman, Ohio EPA.  The draft FONSI and EA can be reviewed viewed online at Ohio EPA’s website:

Project documents will also be available at the following location:

Barberton, Ohio 44203

Comments on the draft FONSI will be accepted from the public starting Thursday, October 23, 2014, through Saturday, November 22, 2014.  Comments postmarked after November 22, 2014 will not be accepted.  Please submit your comments via mail or email to:

Columbus, Ohio 43214

Daniel.Halterman@epa.ohio.gov

At the close of the public comment period, USEPA will review any comments received and determine whether any modifications to the proposed project might be warranted.  If no substantive comments are received, the draft FONSI will become final.  Once the NEPA process has been completed, the City of Barberton can proceed with the USEPA grant application process.  If you have any questions, please contact Ken Westlake at 312-886-2910 or westlake.kenneth@epa.gov or Dan Halterman at 614-644-3658 or Daniel.Halterman@epa.ohio.gov.
