The California red-legged frog was listed by the Service as threatened on May 23, 1996 (61 FR 25813). Section 9 of the Act and its implementing regulations prohibit the ‘‘take’’ of fish or wildlife species listed as endangered or threatened. ‘‘Take’’ is defined under the Act to include the following activities: ‘‘[T]o harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct’’ (16 U.S.C. 1532); however, under section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Act, we may issue permits to authorize incidental take of listed species. ‘‘Incidental take’’ is defined by the Act as take that is incidental to, and not the purpose of, carrying out of an otherwise lawful activity. Regulations governing incidental take permits for threatened and endangered species are in the Code of Federal Regulations at 50 CFR 17.32 and 17.22, respectively.

The applicant has applied for a permit for incidental take of the California tiger salamander and California red-legged frog. The potential taking would occur as a result of activities associated with the construction of the farm labor camp in suitable habitat for the covered species. DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR Our Preliminary Determination ACTION: The Service has made a preliminary determination that issuance of the permit is neither a major Federal action that will significantly affect the quality of the human environment within the meaning of section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.; NEPA), nor will it individually or cumulatively have more than a negligible effect on the species covered in the HCP. Therefore, the permit qualifies for a categorical exclusion under NEPA.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We have received an application from Laguna 
County Sanitation District (applicant), for an incidental take permit 
under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1531 et 
seq.; Act). The applicant has agreed to follow all of the conditions in 
the habitat conservation plan for the project. The permit would 
authorize take of the Santa Barbara distinct population segment of the 
federally endangered California tiger salamander (Ambystoma 
californiense) and the federally threatened California red-legged frog 
(Rana draytonii) incidental to otherwise lawful activities associated 
with the Laguna County Sanitation District Project Habitat Conservation 
Plan (HCP). We invite public comment on the application, the draft 
habitat conservation plan, draft low-effect screening form, and 
environmental action statement.

Background

    The Santa Barbara distinct population segment of the California 
tiger salamander was listed by the Service as endangered on September 
21, 2000 (65 FR 57242). The California red-legged frog was listed by 
the Service as threatened on May 23, 1996 (61 FR 25813). Section 9 of 
the Act and its implementing regulations prohibit the ``take'' of fish 
or wildlife species listed as endangered or threatened. ``Take'' is 
defined under the Act to include the following activities: ``[T]o 
harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or 
collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct'' (16 U.S.C. 
1532); however, under section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Act, we may issue 
permits to authorize incidental take of listed species. ``Incidental 
take'' is defined by the Act as take that is incidental to, and not the 
purpose of, carrying out of an otherwise lawful activity. Regulations 
governing incidental take permits for threatened and endangered species 
are in the Code of Federal Regulations at 50 CFR 17.32 and 17.22, 
respectively. Under the Act, protections for federally listed plants 
differ from the protections afforded to federally listed animals. 
Issuance of an incidental take permit also must not jeopardize the 
existence of federally listed fish, wildlife, or plant species. All 
species included in the incidental take permit would receive assurances 
under our ``No Surprises'' regulations (50 CFR 17.22(b)(5) and 
17.32(b)(5)).
    The applicant has applied for a permit for incidental take of the 
California tiger salamander and California red-legged frog. The 
potential taking would occur as a result of activities associated with 
the construction of the farm labor camp in suitable habitat for the 
covered species.

Our Preliminary Determination

    The Service has made a preliminary determination that issuance of 
the permit is neither a major Federal action that will significantly 
affect the quality of the human environment within the meaning of 
section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 
4321 et seq.; NEPA), nor will it individually or cumulatively have more 
than a negligible effect on the species covered in the HCP. Therefore, 
the permit qualifies for a categorical exclusion under NEPA.

Public Comments

    If you wish to comment on the permit application, plan, and 
associated documents, you may submit comments by one of the methods in 
ADDRESSES.

Public Availability of Comments

    Before including your address, phone number, email address, or 
other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be

information, may be made publicly available at any time. While you can

information from public view, we cannot guarantee that we will be able

Authority

    We provide this notice under section 10 of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 
et seq.) and NEPA regulations (40 CFR 1506.6).
