Notice of the Availability of an Environmental Assessment The USDA Rural Utilities Service has received an ap- plication for financial assistance from Old River Water Association, Inc. The proposal consists of installing ap- proximately 74,000 linear feet of 8" and 6" PVC waterlines to serve the western portion of the water system, approxi- mately 65,000 linear feet of 6" and 4"waterlines to upgrade smaller lines to meet Health Department pressure require- ments and a 400 GPM water Treatment Plant to treat water from water well #4. As required by the National Environmental Policy Act and agency regulations, the Rural Utilities Service prepared an Environmental Assessment of the proposal that assessed the potential environmental effects of the proposal and the effect of the proposal may have on historic properties. The Environmental Assessment was published on January 1, 2015 for a 30-day public comment period. Upon consideration of the applicant's proposal, federal and state environmental regulatory and natural resource agencies and public input the agency has determined that the proposal will not have a significant effect on the human environment and for which a Environment Impact Statement will not be prepared. The basis of this determination is that there are no other feasible options available. Copies of the Evironmental Assessment can be reviewed or obtained at the Rural Development Sub-Office located a 110 Northgate Read, Suite-B, Natchez, MS 39120.

This past weekend at the Regional Science Olym- piad our team qualffied to move up to the State Science Olympiad on March 27. The team brought home medals in geologic mapping (Luke Little- ton and Sam Nicholas, 3rd), compound machines (Carmen Cavin and Mary Kathryn Doucet, 3rd), and scrambler (Olivia Hurst and Nicholas Lanehart, 3rd). Thanks to our students for a job well done! thanks to Mrs. Pamela Leak, team sponsor. Our robotics team had a wonderful showing at the NTC MS State Rebetic Champion- ship in Oxford! Gulfport High School (Synergy Squared) awarded a 3D (Ekocycle 3D) printer to WCCA along with an automated design sei ware program. The printer competi- tion was based on a 50 word explanation of why we could use a 3D printer and how the printer could benefit the team. Clinton Brawley, coach of Synergy Squared, said, ' here is not a doubt in my mind that our students picked the best team to award the printer. I was shocked that my students wanted to give away one of the printers, but I quickly real- ized they were right to want to spread the resources around. Galfport will do everything we can to make sure your team is successfifl and in it for the long run."
