The Town of Grifton has applied for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance

 (PA) Program funding through the North Carolina Emergency Management (NCEM) as a sub- recipient.


Under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), federal actions must be reviewed and evaluated for feasible alternatives and for social, economic, historic, environmental, legal, and safety considerations. Under Executive Order (EO) 11988 and EO 11990, FEMA is required to consider alternatives, and to provide a public notice of any proposed actions in or affecting floodplains or wetlands. EO 12898 also requires FEMA to provide the opportunity for public participation in the planning process and to consider potential impacts to minority and low-income populations. This notice may also fulfill requirements under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).


Funding for the proposed project will be conditional upon compliance with all applicable federal, tribal, state, and local laws, regulations, floodplain standards, permit requirements and conditions.


Sub-Applicant: Town of Grifton


Project Title: Sand and Gravel Replacement at RV Park


Location of Proposed Work: Facility and Address



RV Park, Grifton, NC 28530




 Special Flood Hazard Area: This project is for replacement of fill material at the RV Park in Grifton, NC which is located in Floodway Zone AE. Confirmation of location in a Floodway was determined by the latest Flood Insurance Rate Map, Panel Number: 3720456900L dated 04/16/2013. The proposed work conforms to all applicable State of North Carolina and local floodplain regulations. The proposed work will not take place in wetlands per the United States Fish and Wildlife Service National Wetlands Inventory. There is a potential for the facility to be impacted by similar flooding events due to its location within a Floodway. However, no alternative measures have been identified due to the location facilitating open and recreational space as well as an economic resource for the community.

Proposed Work and Purpose:

The Town of Grifton plans to utilize contract labor and equipment for the following repairs to the RV Park: replace 500 CY of sand embankment and 500 TN of gravel embankment. All repairs restore the facility back to its pre-disaster design, function, and capacity within the existing footprint with in-kind materials. The Town of Grifton plans to source sand and gravel from a local borrow site. Additionally, the project will not require excavation, work at or below the normal high-water mark or impact the base flood and floodway elevations, and floodway width. A goal of this project is to minimize the impact of floods on human health, safety, or welfare and increase the useful life of the structure or facility as well as restore and/or preserve the natural and beneficial values served by floodplains.


Project Alternatives:

Alternative #1 (‘no action’ alternative): The 'no action' alternative would ultimately result in a negative impact on the Town of Grifton. The RV Park functions as open space, a recreational and economic resource (tourism) for the community, which depends on the natural surroundings in and around the park.


Comment Period:

Comments are solicited from the public; local, state or federal agencies, and other interested parties in order to consider and evaluate the impacts of the proposed project. The comments should be made in writing and addressed to:

FEMA Internal 11988 Reviewer FEMA Region 4

3003 Chamblee-Tucker Road

Atlanta, Georgia, 30341

Alternatively, comments may be emailed to: Please send comments with the subject line [DR-4393-NC-00673 11988 COMMENT].

All comments are due by no later than 15 days of the posted date of this notice.

The Town of Grifton operates a wastewater collection system under permit WQCS00247, issued by the ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT COMMISSION, N.C. DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENT AND NATURAL RESOURCES. This system consists of approximately 20 linear miles of gravity sewer lines, 6.4 linear miles of force mains, 10 duplex and 5 simplex pump stations, and all associated piping, valves, and appurtenances necessary to operate a wastewater collection system for the Town of Grifton.
During the year, 2017, this collection system was operated in compliance with all regulations applied to it by NCDENR. This system had no SSO’s (Sanitary Sewer Overflows), meaning that no wastewaters escaped from the system. Our 10 duplex pump stations are inspected daily and our simplex stations are inspected weekly. Each of our duplex pumping stations has two pumps that alternate in operation and have a backup generator or bypass pumping capability to operate in case of power failure.
Wastewater collected by this system is pumped to the Contentnea Metropolitan Sewerage District (CMSD) treatment plant where it is treated and discharged into the Contentnea Creek.
The Town of Grifton has expended considerable resources studying and inspecting the collection system in an effort to reduce stormwater inflow and groundwater infiltration into the system. The Town purchased a sewer jet vac truck this year to assist in the sewer line cleaning for the prevention of sewer overflows. This year the Town of Grifton received a $ 1,276,000 grant and $ 441,000 loan from U.S.D.A. that consists of both pump station rehabilitation and gravity sewer improvements. The Contentnea and Woodlawn pump stations will be totally renovated with new pumps, controls and site appurtenances. In addition, the project includes 14 new manholes, 51 sewer service lateral re-connections and 5100 LF of sewer line replacement. Should you have any questions, please contact the Town of Grifton, by mail at P.O. 579, Grifton NC 28530; by telephone at 252-524-5168; or visit us at
