FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT

In preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA) as required by the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), Jackson County determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment and an Environmental Impact Statement is not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Assessment on file at Jackson County Offices at 67 Athens Street, Jefferson, Georgia 30549. The document may be examined or copied between the hours of 9:00 A.M to 5:00 P.M, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATION

Jackson County certifies to DNR that Tom Crow in his capacity as Chairman consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. DNR’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows Jackson County to use Program funds.
