• On May 2 FEMA issued determinations regarding three Project Worksheets (PWs) related to debris in Bennington. Woody debris removal was approved for $251K, Army Corps levee repairs of $214 were deemed ineligible because they were within ASACE’s jurisdiction; and channel excavation, sediment removal, and bank armoring was deemed eligible for $1.33M (out of $3.45M of expense incurred). These determinations are subject to final environmental review. Bennington intends to appeal two of the three PWs. Determinations for Woodford or Rockingham debris PWs are forthcoming.
• Based on FEMA headquarters’ response to the second appeal of Townshend Dam Road Culvert PW1803, FEMA is currently reviewing over a dozen PWs related to bridges and culverts for additional 406 hazard mitigation funding eligibility.
