On May 27, 2015, the County of Dauphin published a Combined Notice of Intent to
Request Release of Funds (RROF) and a Notice of Finding of No Significant Impact
(FONSI) in this newspaper. The purposes of that Notice were to inform the public
of the environmental determination for activities to be supported with Community
Development Block Grant Disaster (CDBG-DR) funds from the U. S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and from the PA Department of Community
and Economic Development (PA DCED); and that the County would be submitting a
request for release of funds to HUD and PA DCED for those activities. A list of the
activities referenced in that Notice follows:
Borough of Royalton, Dauphin County, PA 17057, Royalton PA Canal Drainage
Construction Improvements Project: The project activities, which are being proposed
to repair damage to drainage and stormwater systems flooded during Tropical Storm
Lee, are located in three areas of the Borough along an unnamed tributary to the
Royalton PA Canal prior to entering the Susquehanna River:
Shippen Street Area: The proposed work at the Shippen Street area includes grading
an overflow swale above an existing 36” CMP; installing a 32” outside diameter plastic
liner in the 36” CMP; installing a custom endwall at the discharge location of the 36”
CMP existing pipe; and installing a riprap apron at the outfall of the existing 36” CMP
and the overflow swale which flows to the southwest.
Wyoming Street Area: The Wyoming Street area is directly downstream of the Shippen
Street area, and includes replacing a portion of an undersized drainage pipe network
and associated endwall structures. Specifically the location where the open channel
re-enters an existing 36” CMP pipe will be replaced with a new Type-DW headwall,
and a 41” x 53” Aluminized Steel Spiral Rib pipe will be installed. A Type-M inlet will
be replaced, and a portion of the existing 48” CMP will be replaced with 48” SLCPP.
Approximately 260 L.F. of the existing 48” CMP in this location will be removed and
an open channel constructed to mimic a natural floodplain. Where the 48” SLCPP
transitions to an open channel, an endwall and riprap apron will be installed to prevent
erosion. Stream features such as coir roll, cross vanes, pools, and deflectors will be
utilized to enhance the aquatic environment and live stake plantings combined with
planting trees, shrubs, and a riparian buffer seed mix will be utilized to create a more
natural habitat for wildlife. The proposed channel will discharge to an existing dual
36” steel culvert system and be conveyed to the west beneath the Amtrak railway.
Canal Street (SR 441) Area: The Canal Street area of the project is located immediately
downstream of the Wyoming Street area and adjacent to the S.R. 441 bridge located
just downstream of the outfall of the railway culvert system. This location is where the
Royalton PA Canal is established along Canal Street (S.R. 441) and has a bend in the
existing Canal channel directly downstream of the bridge, which collects sediment and
is an area of high turbulence during significant storms. The proposed work includes
removing brush from the banks of the bend in the canal channel and installing matting
to stabilize the bank and protect adjacent properties from loss of property during
erosion. This area will also be protected from erosion and sedimentation by installing
a rock construction entrance and a rock filter.
That May 27, 2015 Notice contained certain problems. The purpose of this Corrected
Notice is to correct those problems as follows:
The original Notice did not specify under Public Comments a certain time period that
comments must be submitted to the County of Dauphin, The corrected time period
is that: All comments received by July 17, 2015 will be considered by the County of
Dauphin prior to authorizing submission of a Request for Release of Funds.
As a result of correcting the public comment period, the corrected date that Dauphin
County will submit a request to HUD and to PA DCED for the release of CDBG-DR
Grant Funds is corrected to July 20, 2015.
Please refer to the original Notice for the basis upon which HUD and PA DCED will
accept objection to the County’s certification. For additional information regarding the
proposed activities, the County’s environmental reviews, or this Notice of Correction,
please contact Mr. George Connor, Dauphin County Economic Development Corporation,
112 Market Street, 7th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17101.
