SUMMARY: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is issuing this notice to advise the public that a Supplement Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) has been completed and is available for review and comment. DATES: In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), we have filed the Supplemental Draft EIS with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for publication of their notice of availability in the Federal Register. The EPA notice officially starts the 45-day review period for this document. It is the goal of the USACE to have this notice published on the same date as the EPA notice. However, if that does not occur, the date of the EPA notice will determine the closing date for comments on the Supplemental Draft EIS. Comments on the Supplemental Draft EIS must be submitted to the address below under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT and must be received no later than 5 p.m. eastern standard time, Monday, March 27, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The proposed action by the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) is a 16,768-acre water supply reservoir located north of Stormwater Treatment Area 3/4 and between the Miami and North New River Canals in the EAA in Palm Beach County, Florida. The purpose of the EAA Reservoir A–1 is to store water from stormwater runoff and releases from Lake Okeechobee at any given time. As part of the USACE’s review process, this Supplemental Draft EIS has been prepared. The SFWMD’s proposed project, identified as Cell A–1, is the same footprint as a portion of the Selected Plan, identified in the USACE’s September 2005 Draft Project Implementation Report (PIR) / EIS for the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) EAA Storage Reservoirs project, which features a twocell reservoir impoundment with a maximum normal pool storage depth of 12 feet at approximately 31,000 acres of above ground surface area storage. The SFWMD proposes to construct the EAA Reservoir A–1 project prior to implementation of any federal EAA Storage Reservoirs project. The USACE is proceeding with two separate and independent but related actions, the regulatory evaluation of the SFWMD’s proposed EAA Reservoir A–1 project and the planning evaluation of the federal CERP EAA Storage Reservoirs project, both of which are described in the September 2005 Draft PIR/EIS (See the Executive Summary, pages 16–17 and Section 8, Plan Implementation, pages 1–2 and pages 12–13). The USACE and SFWMD had anticipated that the SFWMD would accelerate construction and achievement of benefits of certain CERP projects by obtaining required permits and initiating construction upon completion of the Final EIS for the federal CERP project. Because of delays in completion of the Final EIS for the CERP EAA Storage Reservoirs project, the SFWMD is pursuing a Department of the Army permit prior to completion of the CERP EAA Storage Reservoirs Final EIS. Accordingly, this separate Supplemental Draft EIS has been prepared by the Regulatory Division to address the environmental impacts of the SFWMD’s proposed project. The Regulatory Division of the USACE will evaluate the SFWMD’s proposed EAA Reservoir A–1 while the USACE Civil Works Planning Process continues with VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:38 Feb 10, 2006 Jkt 208001 a separate and independent evaluation of the CERP project. Any regulatory decision on the SFWMD’s proposed project will not affect the planning process and consideration of alternatives for the federal CERP EAA Storage Reservoirs project. The SFWMD’s Acceler8 project may ultimately be a component of the federal CERP EAA Storage Reservoirs project. If it is not a part of the federal recommended plan, it will be considered as a locally preferred plan. Dated: February 6, 2006. Erik L. Stor, MAJ(P), Corps of Engineers, District Commander. [FR Doc.
