Environmental Impacts Statements; Notice of Availability, 38131-38132 [05-13044]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 126 / Friday, July 1, 2005 / Notices system to service its native load customers. The monthly charge methodology for NITS on the CAP 115kV and 230-kV transmission lines is the product of the transmission customer’s load-ratio share times one-twelfth of the annual transmission revenue requirement. The customer’s load-ratio share is calculated on a rolling 12month basis. The customer’s load-ratio share is equal to that customer’s hourly load coincident with the CAP 115-kV and 230-kV transmission lines monthly transmission system peak divided by the resultant value of the CAP 115-kV and 230-kV transmission lines monthly transmission system peak minus the CAP 115-kV and 230-kV transmission lines coincident peak for all firm pointto-point transmission service plus the CAP 115-kV and 230-kV transmission lines firm point-to-point transmission service reservations. The proposed rates include the costs for scheduling, system control, and dispatch service. Legal Authority Western is establishing rates for transmission service on the CAP 115-kV and 230-kV transmission lines under the Department of Energy Organization Act (42 U.S.C. 7101–7352); the Reclamation Act of 1902 (ch. 1093, 32 Stat. 388), as amended and supplemented by subsequent laws, particularly section 9(c) of the Reclamation Project Act of 1939 (43 U.S.C. 485h(c)); and other acts that specifically apply to the project involved. By Delegation Order No. 00–037–00, effective December 6, 2001, the Secretary of Energy delegated: (1) The authority to develop power and transmission rates to Western’s Administrator; (2) the authority to confirm, approve, and place such rates into effect on an interim basis to the Deputy Secretary of Energy; and (3) the authority to confirm, approve, and place into effect on a final basis, to remand, or to disapprove such rates to the Commission. Existing Department of Energy (DOE) procedures for public participation in power rate adjustments (10 CFR part 903) were published on September 18, 1985. Web site at http://www.wapa.gov/dsw/ pwrmkt/CAPTRP/CAPTRP.htm. Regulatory Procedure Requirements Regulatory Flexibility Analysis The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980 (5 U.S.C. 601, et seq.) requires Federal agencies to perform a regulatory flexibility analysis if a final rule is likely to have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities and there is a legal requirement to issue a general notice of proposed rulemaking. This action does not require a regulatory flexibility analysis since it is a rulemaking of particular applicability involving rates or services applicable to public property. Environmental Compliance In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. 4321, et seq.); Council on Environmental Quality Regulations (40 CFR parts 1500–1508); and DOE NEPA Regulations (10 CFR part 1021), Western has determined this action is categorically excluded from preparing an environmental assessment or an environmental impact statement. Determination Under Executive Order 12866 Western has an exemption from centralized regulatory review under Executive Order 12866; accordingly, no clearance of this notice by the Office of Management and Budget is required. Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act Western has determined that this rule is exempt from congressional notification requirements under 5 U.S.C. 801 because the action is a rulemaking of particular applicability relating to rates or services and involves matters of procedure. Dated: June 17, 2005. Michael S. Hacskaylo, Administrator.

Requests for copies of EPA comments can be directed to the Office of Federal Activities at 202–564–7167. An explanation of the ratings assigned to draft environmental impact statements (EISs) was published in the Federal Register dated April 1, 2005 (70 FR 16815). Draft EISs EIS No. 20050005, ERP No. D–BLM– J65436–UT, Vernal Field Office Resource Management Plan, To Revise and Integrate the Book Cliff and Diamond Mountain Resource Management Plan, Daggett, Duchesne, Uintah and Grand Counties, UT. Summary: EPA expressed environmental concerns about potential adverse impacts to air quality, and PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 recommended that a revised cumulative air quality analysis, including other reasonably foreseeable projects, especially on Uintah and Ouray Reservations be completed. Rating EC2. EIS No. 20050044, ERP No. D–BLM– J02047–WY, Jonah Infill Drilling Project, Propose to Expand Development of Natural Gas Drilling, Sublette County, WY. Summary: EPA expressed concerns because decreased well spacing will result in significant impacts to: vegetation from removal or compaction; surface water quality from soil erosion; wildlife from habitat destruction; and fragmentation without providing specific approaches to maintain ecosystem viability. In addition, there is a potential for wetlands impacts from surface activities located in playas. EPA recommends phased development based on geographic considerations and potential impacts and identification of mitigation for significant impacts. However, EPA’s rating of the proposed action/EIS had been deferred until it has the opportunity to review supplemental air quality information that BLM has committed to develop and solicit comment on in advance of the release of the Final EIS. EIS No. 20050059, ERP No. D–NPS– D40329–VA, Manassas National Battlefield Park Bypass Study, From U.S.–29 East of Park Boundary and VA–234 South of Park Boundary to U.S. 29 West of Park Boundary and VA–234 North of Park Boundary, US Army COE Section 404 Permit, Prince William and Fairfax Counties, VA. Summary: EPA expressed environmental concerns about potential impacts to, wetlands, streams, riparian areas, resource protection areas and Section 4(f) protected parkland. EPA requested that the Final EIS address cumulative impacts to aquatic and historic resources. Rating EC2. EIS No. 20050144, ERP No. D–FHW– F40430–IN, US–31 Kokomo Corridor Project, Transportation Improvement between IN–26 and U.S. 35 Northern Junction, City of Kokomo and Center Township, Howard and Tipton Counties, IN. Summary: EPA has environmental concerns due to potential adverse impacts to wetlands, streams/water quality, drinking water supplies, upland forest and wildlife habitat. Rating EC2. EIS No. 20050149, ERP No. D–FHW– F40432–WI, U.S. 41 Highway Corridor Project, Transportation Improvement between the Cities of Oconto and Peshtigo, Funding, Marinette and Oconto Counties, WI.
