The City of Montpelier is giving notice that it has made a Finding of No Significant Impact for the following project:

Project Title or Name: Salamonie River Stormwater Sewer Outfall Improvements Project

Purpose or Nature of Project: The City of Montpelier Indiana proposes to construct a new storm sewer outfall from the Salamonie River to W. Windsor Street. This area consists primarily of agricultural land with some residential homes. Both the storm water and sanitary sewer systems of the City of Montpelier are directed to a single interceptor pipeline consisting of multiple inflow points, two of which are combined sewer overflow (CSO) structures. Project improvements for phase one will begin at W. Windsor Street and extend to the Salamonie River, west of the existing railroad tracks. The plan is to provide a storm water outfall which will serve the City of Montpelier’s storm water drainage. The 48” storm water outfall will begin at the Salamonie River, extend southwest to Warren Avenue and then will continue northwest along Warren Avenue to W. Henderson Street. There the line turns west along W. Henderson Street to Grant Street. At this point the line turns south along Grant Street and terminates at W. Windsor Street.

Estimated Cost of Project: $642,120.00
