ACTION: Notice of availability. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, has prepared a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement and State Notice of Project Change (DSEIS/ NPC) to maintenance dredge the following Federal navigation channels: the Main Ship Channel upstream of Spectacle Island to the Inner Confluence, the upper Reserved Channel, the approach to the Navy Dry Dock, and a portion of the Chelsea River (previously permitted) in Boston Harbor, MA. Maintenance dredging of the navigation channels landward of Spectacle Island is needed to remove shoals and restore the Federal navigation channels to their authorized depths. Materials dredged from the Federal channels will either be disposed of at the Massachusetts Bay Disposal Site (if the material is suitable for unconfined open water disposal) or, if the material is not suitable for unconfined open water disposal, in confined aquatic disposal (CAD) cell(s). Major navigation channel improvements (deepening) were made in 1999 through 2001 in the Reserved Channel, the Mystic River, Inner Confluence and the Chelsea River. A final EIS was prepared for this previous navigation improvement project in June of 1995 in which the use of CAD cells in the Mystic River, Inner Confluence, and Chelsea River were investigated. A CAD cell for the proposed maintenance project will be constructed in the Mystic River and in the Main Ship Channel just below the Inner Confluence. DATES: Submit comments on or before February 27, 2006.

ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the Westminster watershed ecosystem and look for multipurpose recommendations for how to more effectively manage its natural resources. There is a need for both flood control improvements as well as ecosystem habitat restoration. The study area is located in western Orange County, CA, approximately 25 miles southeast of the City of Los Angeles. The Westminster watershed lies on a flat coastal plain, is approximately 90 square miles in area, and is almost entirely urbanized with residential and commercial development. There are two main channel systems that collect runoff from portions of urbanized areas in the cities of Anaheim, Stanton, Cypress, Orange, Santa Ana, Garden Grove, Westminster, Fountain Valley, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, and Huntington Beach. The East Garden Grove-Wintersburg Channel (EGGW), with its principal tributary, the Ocean View Channel (OV), drains into Bolsa Bay. Two retarding basins (Haster and West Street) exist at the upstream reach of the EGGW E:\FR\FM\13JAN1.SGM 13JAN1

SUMMARY: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, has 
prepared a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement and State 
Notice of Project Change (DSEIS/NPC) to maintenance dredge the 
following Federal navigation channels: the Main Ship Channel upstream 
of Spectacle Island to the Inner Confluence, the upper Reserved 
Channel, the approach to the Navy Dry Dock, and a portion of the 
Chelsea River (previously permitted) in Boston Harbor, MA. Maintenance 
dredging of the navigation channels landward of Spectacle Island is 
needed to remove shoals and restore the Federal navigation channels to 
their authorized depths. Materials dredged from the Federal channels 
will either be disposed of at the Massachusetts Bay Disposal Site (if 
the material is suitable for unconfined open water disposal) or, if the 
material is not suitable for unconfined open water disposal, in 
confined aquatic disposal (CAD) cell(s). Major navigation channel 
improvements (deepening) were made in 1999 through 2001 in the Reserved 
Channel, the Mystic River, Inner Confluence and the Chelsea River. A 
final EIS was prepared for this previous navigation improvement project 
in June of 1995 in which the use of CAD cells in the Mystic River, 
Inner Confluence, and Chelsea River were investigated. A CAD cell for 
the proposed maintenance project will be constructed in the Mystic 
River and in the Main Ship Channel just below the Inner Confluence.
