Emergency Operations Centers

Palmer Engineering supplied the Clark, Powell, and Rockcastle County Fiscal Courts with documentation that follows the National Environmental Protection Act pursuant to the Council of Environmental Quality (CEQ) standards with regard to potential construction sites of future Emergency Operations Centers (EOC). The proposed construction sites are currently under consideration and followed provisions of NEPA. A Finding of No Significant Impact is expected through this process. Funding for this project was provided through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

This documentation considered alternatives that addressed multiple environmental components such as land use, air quality, noise, topography, geology, soils, biological resources, archaeological and cultural resources, socioeconomics, aesthetics, visual resources, and recreational resources. This information was then provided to FEMA and the Commonwealth of Kentucky for the benefit of the local residents.
