Mayville Applies For Funding To Address Drinking Water System

 The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has announced the City of Mayville is an applicant for funding through the Safe Drinking Water Loan Program (SDWLP) to address deficiencies in its public drinking water system. The project includes both street and utility reconstruction within the Bridge Street Right of Way from Main Street to Clark Street.

Activities related to this project are minor actions under Chapter NR 150, Wis. Admin. Code, for which no environmental analysis is required; however, following the SDWLP federal requirement 40 C.F.R. §35.3580, an environmental review must be conducted before funding this project.

The SDWLP has determined that the project will not result in significant adverse environmental effects, and no further environmental review or analysis is needed before proceeding with funding the project.

The public is encouraged to submit written or verbal comments regarding this decision and the potential environmental impacts of this project. Submit comments by March 22 to:

Department of Natural Resources
C/O Kevin Olson, Community Financial Assistance,  CF/2
101 S. Webster St.
P.O. Box 7921
Madison, WI 53707
[email protected] or 608-234-2238

Based on the comments received, the SDWLP may prepare an environmental analysis before proceeding with the funding process. The analysis would summarize the DNR’s consideration of the project’s impacts and reasonable alternatives.
