Timothy O'Connor used the EAF Mapper recently to generate a Short Environmental Assessment Form using State and North Front streets--the site of the proposed sewer separation project--as the location and shared the results with Gossips.
Curiously, the answers provided by the EAF Mapper to some key questions on the Short Environmental Assessment Form are different from the answers provided by Delaware Engineering on the draft SEAF presented to the Common Council at the Council's informal meeting last Monday.
While Delaware Engineering answered NO to Question 13a (Does any portion of the site of the proposed action, or lands adjoining the proposed action, contain wetlands or other waterbodies regulated by a federal, state or local agency?), Question 15 (Does the site of the proposed action contain any species of animal, or associated habitats, listed the the State or Federal government as threatened or endangered?), and Question 20 (Has the site of the proposed action or an adjoining property been the subject of remediation [ongoing or completed] for hazardous waste?), the EAF Mapper answered YES to all three of those questions.
