Public Notice No.: WSL-017-15 First Publication Date: August 31, 2017 The Virginia Department of Health has under consideration a request for a Categorical Exclusion from an Environmental Assessment for a waterworks project proposed to be funded through the Virginia Water Supply Revolving Fund. The appli- cant is the Castlewood Water & Sewer Authority (CWSA). The project consists of the replacement of approximately 7,000 linear feet of 6-inch water line with 12-inch water line. The water line will primarily be located adjacent to Gravel Lick Road. The proposed activ- ities will occur in previously dis- turbed areas, pri- marily in VDOT right-of-way. The applicant feels that the project meets the following exclusion cate- gories established by the Department: 1. Water line replacement/reha- bilitation to correct exfiltration water loss problems or problems associat- ed with inadequate water pressure. 2. Replacement of existing equipment or structures at their present locations. Documentation supporting this request includes: 1. A written request from CWSA dated September 23, 2015. 2. A copy of the Environmental Site Visit Report con- ducted on June 8, 2016. Prior to implementing con- struction, the appli- cant will obtain all applicable permits and approvals.
