STATEMENT OF PURPOSE R809809C2 This supplemental appropriation provides one-time funding to complete the Milo Creek Flood Containment Project. Milo Creek is located in the Silver Valley of Northern Idaho. It drains the area around the Bunker Hill mine, and then flows through the cities of Wardner and Kellogg, and into the Coeur d'Alene River. At the time of the Milo Creek flood, in May 1997, the creek flowed through very old underground channels., some of which were wooden flumes dating back to the early mining days. The channel also followed no public right-of- way, as is now customary, but instead flowed underneath private property and buildings. The May 1997 flood caused numerous blowouts and spread contaminated Bunker Hill water across the two cities. This supplemental would complete the process of enlarging Milo Creek's underground channel, and relocating it to flow underneath public streets. The supplemental also appropriates money to the Bureau of Hazardous Materials to cover deficiency warrants issued to pay for the cost of responding to hazardous materials incidents throughout Idaho. FISCAL NOTE The appropriation includes $2 million in federal funds, and $1.5 million from the state highway disaster fund. The original request was to fund the $1.5 million portion from the General Fund. It has since been learned, however, that unspent funds remain in the state highway disaster fund, which was established to help recover from these flood events. As a result, the $1.5 million portion is instead funded from this fund. The bill then takes the $1.5 million in General Fund money that is saved, and transfers it to the Permanent Building Fund. There is also a $22,400 General Fund appropriation to the Bureau of Hazardous Materials for deficiency warrants.
