                                         SRF # DW 10021001

Date: September 24, 2009

Target Project Approval Date: October 1, 2009

Pursuant to IC 4-4-11, the State Revolving Fund (SRF) Loan Program has determined that the project
described here will have no substantial negative environmental impact. Therefore, the SRF is issuing a
preliminary decision of Categorical Exclusion from the requirements of substantive environmental review.

How were environmental issues considered?
    The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires agencies disbursing Federal funds to
    include environmental factors in the decision making process. A summary of the project is attached
    for review. The SRF's preliminary review has found that the proposed project does not require the
    preparation of either an EA or an EIS.

Why is additional environmental review not required?
     Our environmental review has concluded that significant environmental impacts will not result from
     the proposed action.
