Lower Mud River Flood Risk Management Project Office Hours Announced

Published July 1, 2024

The Huntington District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will conduct a public outreach opportunity, also known as open office hours, regarding the Lower Mud River, Milton, West Virginia Flood Risk Management Project Engineering Documentation Report and Supplemental Environmental Assessment (EDR/SEA), Wednesday July 10, 2024, 1 – 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the Milton City Hall, 1139 Smith St, Milton, WV 25541.

The Corps will hold open office hours from 1 – 3:30p.m. and from 5:30 – 8:30p.m. where Corps representatives will have tables set up with information on the project and be available to discuss the proposed refinements, answer questions and document comments.

In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, the Huntington District has prepared a Draft Supplemental Environmental Assessment to provide analysis of the potential environmental, cultural, and socioeconomic impacts of implementation of the proposed Refined Recommended Plan (RRP). Through proposed mitigation efforts it is expected that no significant impacts would result from project implementation and therefore a mitigated Finding of No Significant Impacts (FONSI) is anticipated. The draft FONSI is provided as an enclosure in the EDR/SEA document.

The Draft EDR/SEA and appendices are available at the Milton Public Library and online at:  (search “Lower Mud”).

The 30-day Public Review period began for the Draft EDR/SEA on June 21, 2024, and will conclude July 22, 2024. The purpose of the open office hours is to provide information that is described within the Draft EDR/SEA and to solicit input from the Public and Stakeholders for inclusion into the analysis prior to the end of the public comment period.
