STATE ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY ACT Mitigated Determination of NonSignificance Adoption of Existing Document Date of issuance: November 15, 2021 Lead Agency: Port of Moses Lake Project Contact: Milton Miller mmiller@portofmoseslake.com (509) 762-5363 Description of proposal: The Port of Moses Lake (Port) proposes to construct two new rail line segments, and acquire and refurbish an existing, unused rail segment, to provide rail service to lands designated for industrial development in the northern part of the City of Moses Lake and east of the Grant County International Airport (GCIA). The entire proposed route would extend approximately 11.5 miles and is known as the Northern Columbia Basin Railroad Project (NCBRP) (Project). The purpose of the Project is to enhance opportunities for economic development, and to attract new, rail-dependent businesses to those areas. The Project would also provide rail service to land and properties designated for industrial development that currently have no access to rail service, which would enhance opportunities for economic development and attract new rail-dependent business to the area. The Project would construct two new rail line segments (Segment 1 and Segment 2) and acquire and refurbish an existing rail line (Segment 3) that would connect Segments 1 and 2. Segment 1 includes construction of a new bridge over Crab Creek. The Project Right of Way (ROW) would be 100 feet wide, extending 50 feet from either side of the proposed track centerline. One ROW portion would be 130 feet wide to accommodate the width of deeper cut slopes. The Surface Transportation Board (STB) and Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) prepared a Draft Supplemental Environmental Assessment (DSEA) and a Final Supplemental Environmental Assessment (FSEA) to evaluate the Project. The Supplemental EA was prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to fulfill the requirements of 42 USC 4321 et seq., Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) Implementing Regulations for NEPA (40 CFR Part 1500-1508), FRA's Procedures for Considering Environmental Impacts (64 FR 28545, May 26, 1999, as updated in 78 FR 2713, January 14, 2013) (FRA Environmental Procedures), and the STB's environmental regulations (49 CFR Part 1105). The Supplemental EA resulted in STB issuance of a decision to authorize the project and move forward in November 2019 and a Finding of No Significant Impact issued by FRA in June of 2020. Location of proposal: The NCBRP is in central Washington, approximately 8.5 miles north of Interstate 90, and lies partially in the City of Moses Lake and partially in unincorporated areas of Grant County. The Project extends west from the community of Wheeler (east end of the rail corridor) to the Crab Creek water crossing, and then north to GCIA (north end of the rail corridor). Project Proponent: Port of Moses Lake; Milton Miller, SEPA Responsible Official; 7810 Andrews N.E. Suite 200 Moses Lake, WA 98837; (509)762-5363 Adopted Document Titles, Dates Prepared, and Description: Final Supplemental Environmental Assessment, Surface Transportation Board Docket No. 34936, Northern Columbia Basin Railroad Project. November 5, 2019. The FSEA provides STB's and FRA's independent analysis of the NCBRP; information in the prior Environmental Assessment; consultations with agencies; and careful consideration of all comments received on the Draft Supplemental Environmental Assessment (DSEA) from agencies, organizations, and members of the public. This document includes comments received on the DSEA and responses from STB and FRA. The document also defines the final mitigation measures for the project. Surface Transportation Board, Decision Notice for Docket FD 34936. November 26, 2019. The construction of the Project requires STB authorization through either a certificate under 49 U.S.C. § 10901 or an exemption under 49 U.S.C. § 10502 from the prior approval requirements of § 10901. STB adopted the analysis and conclusions in both the Draft Supplemental EA and Final Supplemental EA, and the final recommended mitigation measures. In this decision STB was satisfied that STB together with the FRA, had taken the requisite hard look at the potential environmental impacts associated with the Port's proposal and determined that, with the recommended environmental mitigation in the Final Supplemental EA, the proposed project will not have potentially significant environmental impacts. US Department of Transportation Federal Rail Administration, Northern Columbia Basin Railroad Project Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). The FONSI document prepared by FRA was developed to comply with NEPA, CEQ's implementing regulations, FRA Environmental Procedures, and related laws. FRA made this FONSI decision based on information included in the Prior EA, Supplemental EA, and all related technical memoranda, and other materials, which were incorporated by reference to the FONSI. Adoption Decision: We have identified and adopted these documents as being appropriate for this proposal after independent review. These documents meet our environmental review needs for the current proposal and accompany this determination. The adopted documents are available for review at Port of Moses Lake Administrative Offices, 7810 Andrews Street NE Suite 200, Moses Lake, WA or electronically by contacting mmiller@portofmoseslake.com. The Port has determined that this proposal will not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment. Pursuant to WAC 197-11-350(3) and through the NEPA process, the proposal has been clarified, changed, and conditioned to include necessary mitigation measures to avoid, minimize or compensate for any probable significant impacts. An environmental impact statement (EIS) is not required under RCW 43.21C.030. The necessary mitigation measures to support this determination are provided as Avoidance, Minimization Measures, and Commitments in the FRA Finding of No Significant Impact Decision Document, and in Chapter 6 of the FSEA. This Mitigated DNS and adoption notice is issued under WAC 197-11-350. Written comments must be submitted no later than 5:00 PM on November 29, 2021, to the Port of Moses Lake c/o Director of Port Facility, 7810 Andrews Street NE Suite 200, Moses Lake, WA 98837 or via email to mmiller@portofmoseslake.com. Signature Milton Miller (electronic signature or name of signor is sufficient) Date November 15, 2021 Appeals of this this threshold determination may be made as defined in Port of Moses Lake Board Resolution 1344, Section 21. Note there are no administrative appeals of Port SEPA determinations (including appeals of any conditions or denials by Port Staff under RCW 43.21C.060). Any person may formally request the Responsible Official to reconsider a SEPA determination orally or in writing. The Responsible Official shall reconsider the determination and provide a written response. However, this is not to be considered a formal appeal within the meaning of RCW 43.21C.075 and WAC 197-11-680, and the Responsible Official is not required to make a record or furnish reasons for the decision. #11054/496845 Pub: November 15, 2021
