ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This notice advises the public that the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) as lead agency, with the Campo Band of Kumeyaay Indians (Campo Band) as a cooperating agency, intends to prepare a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for a proposed solid waste landfill facility to be located on the Campo Indian Reservation in San Diego County, California. The purpose of the proposed action is to provide economic support for tribal selfsufficiency and self-government and to address the socio-economic needs of the Campo Band.

Please include your name, return address and the caption, ‘‘SEIS, Campo Solid Waste Landfill Facility Proposal,’’ on the first page of your written comments. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John Rydzik, (916) 978–6042. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The proposed action is to approve a lease and sublease to allow a 1,150 acre portion of the Campo Indian Reservation to be used for the construction and operation of a solid waste landfill facility. The solid waste landfill facility would require approximately 600 acres of the 1,150 acre lease area. The remaining 550 acres of lease area that surround the proposed facility would be preserved as an E:\FR\FM\08NON1.SGM 08NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 215 / Tuesday, November 8, 2005 / Notices undeveloped buffer area. The Campo Indian Reservation, which consists of 15,580 acres in southeastern San Diego County, lies just north of the United States/Mexico border and approximately 45 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. The Campo Band previously entered into a lease agreement with Muht-Hei, Inc. (MHI), pursuant to which MHI would lease a portion of the Campo Indian Reservation for the purpose of constructing and operating a solid waste landfill, recycling facility, and composting facility. The Campo Band originally authorized MHI in 1989 to enter into a sublease with MidAmerican Waste Systems, Inc. (MAWS) for the development of the solid waste landfill facility. The Campo Band requested the BIA approve the lease and sublease for the proposed project. An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was prepared by BIA, in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act, to evaluate the environmental impacts of the proposed project prior to determining whether the proposed lease related to the project should be approved. A Final EIS (FEIS) was released on November 24, 1992. The BIA issued a Record of Decision (ROD) with conditions on April 27, 1993, and approved the lease between the Campo Band and MHI and sublease between MHI and MAWS for the proposed solid waste landfill. The Campo Environmental Protection Agency (CEPA) issued a final Authority to Construct Permit (ATC) to MHI and MAWS on April 5, 1994, to construct the proposed solid waste landfill, subject to the conditions of the ROD and ATC. Subsequently, MAWS failed to proceed with construction of the project and MHI was found in default of the sublease terms. Since that time, MHI has solicited interest from other solid waste landfill developers. In early 2003, MHI began negotiations with BLT Enterprises, Inc. (BLT), Oxnard, California, on the terms of a sublease to develop the solid waste landfill described in the FEIS. Those negotiations were successfully concluded and on December 12, 2004, the Campo Band authorized MHI to enter into a sublease with BLT. The BIA has decided to prepare a SEIS to address changes in the proposed action, relevant information that has become available, or circumstances that have changed over the years since the FEIS was issued. Areas of concern addressed in the FEIS included land resources, water resources, air quality, living resources, cultural resources, socio-economics, transportation, land VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:11 Nov 07, 2005 Jkt 208001 use, resource use patterns, noise and other values. The FEIS included five alternatives to the proposed action, as follows: (1) Alternative Site One, (2) Alternative Site Two, (3) Reduced Waste Stream at the Proposed Site, (4) Reduced Area of Disturbance at the Proposed Site, and (5) No Action. The SEIS will incorporate the proposed project description from the FEIS by reference, and will discuss aspects of the project that have changed since the FEIS was released in 1992, any changes in environmental impacts associated with those changes, and changes to alternatives. Public Comment Availability Comments, including names and addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the BIA address shown in the ADDRESSES section, during business hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays. Individual respondents may request confidentiality.

SUMMARY: This notice advises the public that the Bureau of Indian 
Affairs (BIA) as lead agency, with the Campo Band of Kumeyaay Indians 
(Campo Band) as a cooperating agency, intends to prepare a Supplemental 
Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for a proposed solid waste 
landfill facility to be located on the Campo Indian Reservation in San 
Diego County, California. The purpose of the proposed action is to 
provide economic support for tribal self-sufficiency and self-
government and to address the socio-economic needs of the Campo Band.

DATES: Written comments on this notice must arrive by December 9, 2005.

ADDRESSES: You may mail or hand carry written comments to Clay Gregory, 
Regional Director, Pacific Regional Office, Bureau of Indian Affairs,

name, return address and the caption, ``SEIS, Campo Solid Waste 
Landfill Facility Proposal,'' on the first page of your written

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John Rydzik, (916) 978-6042.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The proposed action is to approve a lease 
and sublease to allow a 1,150 acre portion of the Campo Indian 
Reservation to be used for the construction and operation of a solid 
waste landfill facility. The solid waste landfill facility would 
require approximately 600 acres of the 1,150 acre lease area. The 
remaining 550 acres of lease area that surround the proposed facility 
would be preserved as an

undeveloped buffer area. The Campo Indian Reservation, which consists 
of 15,580 acres in southeastern San Diego County, lies just north of 
the United States/Mexico border and approximately 45 miles inland from 
the Pacific Ocean.
    The Campo Band previously entered into a lease agreement with Muht-
Hei, Inc. (MHI), pursuant to which MHI would lease a portion of the 
Campo Indian Reservation for the purpose of constructing and operating 
a solid waste landfill, recycling facility, and composting facility. 
The Campo Band originally authorized MHI in 1989 to enter into a 
sublease with Mid-American Waste Systems, Inc. (MAWS) for the 
development of the solid waste landfill facility. The Campo Band 
requested the BIA approve the lease and sublease for the proposed 
project. An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was prepared by BIA, 
in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental 
Policy Act, to evaluate the environmental impacts of the proposed 
project prior to determining whether the proposed lease related to the 
project should be approved. A Final EIS (FEIS) was released on November 
24, 1992. The BIA issued a Record of Decision (ROD) with conditions on 
April 27, 1993, and approved the lease between the Campo Band and MHI 
and sublease between MHI and MAWS for the proposed solid waste 
landfill. The Campo Environmental Protection Agency (CEPA) issued a 
final Authority to Construct Permit (ATC) to MHI and MAWS on April 5, 
1994, to construct the proposed solid waste landfill, subject to the 
conditions of the ROD and ATC.
    Subsequently, MAWS failed to proceed with construction of the 
project and MHI was found in default of the sublease terms. Since that 
time, MHI has solicited interest from other solid waste landfill 
developers. In early 2003, MHI began negotiations with BLT Enterprises, 
Inc. (BLT), Oxnard, California, on the terms of a sublease to develop 
the solid waste landfill described in the FEIS. Those negotiations were 
successfully concluded and on December 12, 2004, the Campo Band 
authorized MHI to enter into a sublease with BLT.
    The BIA has decided to prepare a SEIS to address changes in the 
proposed action, relevant information that has become available, or 
circumstances that have changed over the years since the FEIS was 
issued. Areas of concern addressed in the FEIS included land resources, 
water resources, air quality, living resources, cultural resources, 
socio-economics, transportation, land use, resource use patterns, noise 
and other values. The FEIS included five alternatives to the proposed 
action, as follows: (1) Alternative Site One, (2) Alternative Site Two, 
(3) Reduced Waste Stream at the Proposed Site, (4) Reduced Area of 
Disturbance at the Proposed Site, and (5) No Action. The SEIS will 
incorporate the proposed project description from the FEIS by 
reference, and will discuss aspects of the project that have changed 
since the FEIS was released in 1992, any changes in environmental 
impacts associated with those changes, and changes to alternatives.
