Environmental Assessment and (FONSI) Winnett School District Boiler Replacement Project.
Department of Energy, Washington, DC.
An analysis is presented of the environmental impacts of replacing the Winnett School District's existing oil-fired heating system with a new coal-fired heating system with funds provided from a grant under the Institutional Conservation Program. The report first covers the background and need for action, along with the alternative actions considered. This is followed by a description of the existing environment, including the air and water quality, ecological resources, floodplains and wetlands, land use, visual and recreational resources, and historic and archaeological resources. Next, the environmental effects of the proposed action on these areas are addressed, including noise, safety and health, and transportation. Appendices include figures, and state and federal agency correspondence regarding the project. (Contains 17 references.) (GR)
