Elevate to Modified Class I EA 1) Loan Specialist to fill out Form 1940 -21 and place Exhibit I FONSI in the File. 2) Requires additional documentation through consultation with the EPA for prevention of impacts to the sole source aquifer. The Sole Source Aquifer (SSA) Protection Program is authorized by section 1424(e) of the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974 (42 U. S. C. 201, 300 et. Seq. , and 21 U. S. C. 349) that requires protection of drinking water systems that are the sole or principal drinking water source of an area and which, if contaminated, would create a significant hazard to public health. Aquifers are a geological formation, group of formations, or part of a formation that is capable of yielding a significant amount of water to a well or spring. SSA designation protects an area’s ground water resources by requiring the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to review all proposed projects within the designated area that will receive federal financial assistance.

A consultation letter or email from EPA should be included in the file. The letter/email should indicate something to the effect that EPA has no comments on the proposed project given that there is: • no new construction, • no new impervious surface areas, and • the existing facility is on municipal water so it will not be pulling from the aquifer directly Therefore the proposal will not have an adverse effect on the Espanola Aquifer.

Types of Environmental Impacts • Direct Impact –Construction of a new building and new access road in a proposed future Industrial Park which disturbs trees and sediment. • Indirect Impact – Sediment that runs into adjacent streams and impairs water quality from inadequate SWM or a from large rainfall event from this construction. • Cumulative Impacts – Adverse aquatic effects from repeat sediment runoff events into the same stream from many rainfall events (a large rill/ditch forms and additional sediment runs into the stream) or sediment that runs off of other lots that are developed in the park. • Connected Actions – Construction of a transmission line into the industrial park for this one lot, will have connected actions (right-of-way disturbance, wetland/ critical habitat impact etc. ). Must take into account any potential impact to resources from the additional of this transmission line, such as spurred adjacent development. • Mitigation – Applicant is required to place a permanent Conservation Easement on all non-impacted on-site wetlands in perpetuity to compensate for some of the loss of the wetlands that were disturbed.

Case Study 4 - SHPO Consultation and Finding of Effect • SHPO indicated in a letter that the proposed demolition of the existing building is not considered an adverse effect, but that the historic Liberty hotel should: • 1) be protected during construction of the adjacent underground garage through use of low vibration equipment in order to protect this historic property, and • 2) the inadvertent discovery clause (bones/historic/prehistoric remains uncovered cease work immediately). • The Liberty Hotel is within the “Historic Resources of the Downtown Gallup District”, a historic District listed on the National Register of Historic Places on 1985. The Loan Specialist wrote a letter to SHPO with the finding of a no adverse effect to historic properties, and the SHPO concurred. In this case as long as the EA and LOC include these two requirements the Section 106 consultation is complete.

AN 4619 – When Construction has been Initiated What if the 44 unit MFH

AN 4619 – When Construction has been Initiated What if the 44 unit MFH was in the process of being built already, and the applicant comes in for financing? • According to AN 4619, the Agency is required to perform the same Class II EA that would be conducted if the building had not yet been built. • In this case the Agency would write a letter notifying the Applicant that their financial assistance may be in jeopardy, and that no further construction should take place on the site or they may risk not getting federal financial assistance from RD. • The Agency would need to then document that the applicant had not tried to circumvent NEPA or Section 106 (had the agency indicated to the applicant previously there were historic properties adjacent? ) • The Agency would then attempt to conduct the same Agency and Tribal Consultation to complete the EA. • Since all of the soil disturbance occurred within previously disturbed areas the Agency could perform the Class II EA ex post facto or retroactive if you will. If any Agency objects and indicates their opportunity has been foreclosed, RD should continue to consult with them immediately and reiterate the many of our applicants come for financing after they start construction. RD is unique in that way.

Flip side • This is an example of an easy Class II EA which should be short and not lengthy. Other EAs with multiple impact should adequately cover those resources impacted and the alternatives that were reviewed in detail, as well as mitigation that was required. • Something that you thought was a cat ex could actually be a Class II EA, or require Section 106 consultation…consult with your SEC often. Feel free to contact the N/O often, if your SEC is not available. We do not bite!

What to avoid… • Subjective statements given instead of proper impact analysis • Lack of supporting documentation – maps showing site, etc • No adverse impacts identified or quantified • Mitigation measures not identified • Section 106 not accurately carried out or carried out at all • No Tribal consultation per Section 106 carried out • US FWS – ESA Section 7 consultation and finding missing • FPPA Form AD-1006 consultation with NRCS missing • EJ analysis Form RD 2006 -38 missing • Phase I ESA older than 5 years or when the site has been modified • Lack of consultation on Air Quality, USFWS, State CZMA, Intergovernmental Review (SPOC, COG, planning agency)

Solar Projects • Photovoltaics (PV) use semi-conductor technology to directly convert sunlight into electricity.

Solar Projects • Photovoltaics (PV) use semi-conductor technology to directly convert sunlight into electricity. PV only operates when the sun is shining, and must be coupled either with other power generation mechanisms to ensure a constant supply of electricity. Can be small or large projects. • Solar Thermal works by using mirrors to concentrate sunlight to use directly as a source of heat, as in solar water heating, or to drive a heat cycle such as a sterling engine. Solar Thermal can store thermal energy. Some plants can store enough energy for 7. 5 hours of generation in lieu of sunlight. Can also be larger or small projects.

Geothermal Heat Pumps • Closed Loop Geothermal heat pumps are the most common widely

Geothermal Heat Pumps • Closed Loop Geothermal heat pumps are the most common widely installed units. Regardless of installed in groundwater or dry soil, the heating and cooling process all takes place within an enclosed series of pipes buried beneath the surface. A water/refrigerant mixture is often used to alternately add or draw heat to the subsurface area, but it never leaves the closed loop. • Open Loop Geothermal heat pumps require a substantial local water supply either from body of water like a pond or groundwater reserves from a well. The open loop system does not circulate but draws from the well or lake as needed to heat and reversing as necessary when cooling is required. The water is put back into the water source or emitted via a surface drain. • open loop usually more efficient • closed loop are more common much more flexible, and are still more energy efficient than traditional air comfort systems.
