The NDDEQ has de- termined that this project is eligible for a Categorical Exclusion and is exempt from further substantive environmental review. Because the proposed project meets the criteria for a categorical ex- clusion, a full Finding of No Significant Impact and Environmental Assessment will not be required. Following is a de- Do you have a story idea? Call or emailus at The Golden Valley News and Billings County Pioneer! 701 -872-3755 goldenandbillings @gmail.com scription of the proposed project and a brief statement of how the. project meets the criteria for a categorical ex- clusion. The proposed project consists of re- placement ot existing cast iron water pipe, removal and replacement of lead service lines and watermain looping within the south side of the City of Beach. The existing cast iron water- main is in poor condition and has many issues such as scaling and corrosion. These issues have resulted in addi- tional problems such as poor chlorine residuals, discolored water and inade- quate flows. The City has experienced increasing operation and maintenance costs dueuto more frequent system flushing, leaks and breaks. The proposed project will provide adequate flow capacity of safe drinking water, as well as reduced exposure of 1 lead in drinking water, for the citizens within the City of Beach. Replacing the existing cast iron mains will improve chlorine residuals, improve reliability of the water distribution system, and re- duce operation and maintenance costs from pipeline breaks. The City of Beach has applied for a Drinking Water State Revolving Fund loan of $2,074,000 to finance the proj- ect. The City has the legal authority and administrative capability to construct the proposed impr0vements. This project is behiy granted an ex- clusion because the new watermains will be placed in previously disturbed areas. No previously undisturbed areas will be affected by the construction ac- tivities. The North Dakota State Historic Preservation Officer has concurred with a determination of “No Historic Proper- ties Affected" for this project provided it takes place in the location and in the manner described in the documentation and provided all borrow comes from an approved source (ND SHPO Ref.: 20— 5669). It has been determined that ex- empting the proposed project from fur— ther review under the National Environmental Policy Act will not result in adverse impacts to the population or area of Beach and Golden Valley County. The documentation to support this decision will be on file and available for, public review at the NDDEQ, Division of Municipal Facilities. Comments concerning this decision may be addressed to Mitchell Murray, Environmental Engineer, Division of Municipal Facilities, North Dakota De- partment of Environmental Quality, 918 East Divide Avenue, 3rd Floor, Bis— marck, ND, 58501-1947.

Carol Olson, Board Vice Chair, NDBOTP Extension: Older adults can reduce falling risk Falls are the leading cause of in- jury arid death for older Americans. “The consequences of falls are substantial, including serious injury, loss of independent living and limits on physical activity,” says Jane Strommen, North Dakota State Uni- versity Extension gerontology spe- cialist. In 2018, falls were the leading cause of unintentional injury deaths for North Dakota residents age 60 and older. Eighty fall-related deaths occurred among this age group in 2018. Nationally, one out of every four people 65 and older falls each year. In 2020, the total cost of falls injuries is projected to reach $67.7 billion. The chances of falling and being seriously injured increase with age. However, falls are not a normal part of aging. “By reducing the risk of falls, older adults can increase their qual- ity of life and save thousands of dol- lars in health-care and long-term care costs,” Strommen says. As the baby-boomer generation continues to age, interventions de— signed to maintain independence, mobility and quality of life will be in— creasingly important. Older adults can take control of their health by following these recommendations to prevent falls: - Find a good balance and exer— cise program that builds balance, strength and flexibility. - Talk to your health—care provider and ask for an assessment of your risk of falling. - Review your medications with your pharmacist or doctor. Make sure side effects aren’t increasing your risk of falling. Get your vision checked annu- ally and update your eyeglasses as needed. ' Keep your home safe. Increase lighting, remove tripping hazards, in- stall grab bars and make stairs safe. Assess your footwear for safety. Look for supportive shoes, a good fit, a $016 that grips, and a heel that is sta- ble and grips. Another imponant tip is to sign up for a falls prevention class. Many communities in North Dakota pro- vide falls prevention classes called Stepping On for people age 60 and older. Participants hear from com- munity experts such as pharmacists and Vision specialists, and learn about strength and balance exercises fromphysical therapists. I While the Stepping On program is not available due to coronavirus re- strictions, those interested can join a waiting list and will be contacted when the program is available. For more information about Step- ping On or to request a home safety checklist, contact Strommen at 701- 231-5948 or jane.strommen@ndsu.edu. Please support your local merchants Did you know?
