CP1603 – Coal Creek Springs
CP1603 – Coal Creek Springs Transmission Replacement Project Mitigation

Description of Proposal: Addendum to previously issued Determination of Non-Significance (DNS) SEP20-0015, to include the incorporation of mitigation upstream from the project site. The mitigation will be in the form of large woody material added to the left (south) bank of the White River, approximately one mile upstream. The mitigation will be located within the Natural Shoreline designation. The proposed mitigation is being voluntarily added to the project in response to public comments from the original DNS. The original project included the construction of a new pedestrian bridge and waterline that would cross the White River at Game Farm Park and Game Farm Wilderness Park.

Addendum to Following Document: Determination of Non-Significance, SEP20-0015, issued by the City of Auburn October 21, 2020. 

The responsible official finds this information is sufficient to evaluate the environmental impact of this proposal. 

The lead agency has determined that there are no additional impacts associated with the revised proposal and that the Determination of Non-Significance (DNS) SEP20-0015 is sufficient for this Addendum proposal under WAC 197-11-355 and WAC 197-11-625. The project revisions were reviewed for probable, significant adverse impacts and none were identified, therefore an addendum is sufficient to satisfy the city’s responsibilities under SEPA.
