Notice of Proposed Information Collection Requests, 16297 [E6-4667]

Download as PDF dsatterwhite on PROD1PC76 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 62 / Friday, March 31, 2006 / Notices would not include improvements to drainage structures or wildlife linkages. c. Alternative 3 (No Action/No Federal Action). With the No Action/No Federal Action alternative a new third main track through Cajon Pass would not be constructed and present railroad operations in the region would continue. The No Federal Action (i.e., no 404 permits issued) would require construction of a third main track that would avoid the discharge of fill material in approximately 67 jurisdictional waterways/drainages. However, the placement and design of the third main track is necessarily limited by the narrow width of the existing ROW. As well, the area available for new track is constrained by terrain, changes in elevation, and jurisdictional waterways, including floodplains and wetlands. Lands immediately outside the BNSF ROW are owned by the U.S. Government, under the management of the U.S. Forest Service. Because of these limiting conditions, neither the existing Main Track 1 nor the proposed third main track can avoid impacting the approximate 67 jurisdictional waterways/drainages throughout the length of the project area. Therefore, if no Federal action is taken (i.e., no Section 404 permit is issued), then the third main track could not be built in the Cajon Pass. 4. Scoping. a. Potential impacts associated with the proposed action will be fully evaluated. Resource categories that will be analyzed are: Biology, air quality, hydrology, water quality, noise, vibration, cultural resources, paleontological resources, geology, land use, recreational resources, public services, hazards and hazardous materials, public health and safety, and socioeconomics (environmental justice). b. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers does not intend to hold a public scoping meeting for the EIS/EIR, however, scoping will be conducted prior to preparing an EIS/EIR to aid in the determination of significant environmental issues associated with the proposed project. The public, as well as Federal, State, and local agencies are encouraged to participate in the scoping process by submitting data, information, and comments identifying relevant environmental and socioeconomic issues to be addressed in the environmental analysis. Useful information includes other environmental studies, published and unpublished data, alternatives that could be addressed in the analysis, and potential mitigation measures associated with the proposed project. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:35 Mar 30, 2006 Jkt 208001 c. Individual and agencies may offer information or data relevant to the environmental or socioeconomic impacts by submitting comments, suggestions, and requests to be placed on the mailing list for announcements to (see ADDRESSES) or the following e-mail address: susan.a.meyer@usace.army.mil. 5. Availability of the Draft EIS/EIR: The Draft EIS/EIR is scheduled to be published and circulated in July 2006. Pursuant to CEQA, a public hearing on the EIS/EIR will be held by the County of San Bernardino following its publication. Dated: March 23, 2006. David J. Castanon, Chief, Regulatory Branch.
