Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 37920-37921 [E6-10363]

Download as PDF sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES 37920 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 127 / Monday, July 3, 2006 / Notices Firebreaks will be in place around the entire Alpha Plus ATPA prior to the implementation of the Navy action. The Navy will support the Air Force’s invasive exotic species monitoring and control program within the ATPAs, buffers, and public off-limit areas. The Navy will assist the Air Force in monitoring and control of the feral hog populations within the ATPA, buffers, and public off-limit areas. The Navy will coordinate with the Air Force to ensure that annual reports summarizing efforts to monitor the effects to listed species and their habitats are submitted by October 1st of each year. Upon locating a dead, injured, or sick individual of a federally listed species, notification must be made to the nearest USFWS Law Enforcement Office. Socioeconomics: The Navy will provide EOD personnel to APAFR in an effort to minimize adverse impacts associated with reduced range access. No other mitigative actions are proposed. Cultural Resources: To minimize adverse impacts to potential cultural resources, the Navy will, according to the Memorandum of Agreement, ensure that the following measure will be carried out in consultation with the SHPO: if the Navy encounters unanticipated historic properties or effects, reasonable efforts will be made to avoid, minimize, or mitigate adverse effects pursuant to 36 CFR 800.13(b). Hazardous Materials and Hazardous Waste Management: To minimize the potential for detonation of HE ordnance on the OB/OD TTF site northeast of the Alpha impact area, but within the greater Alpha Plus ATPA, the Navy has been working with the FDEP and Air Force on the removal of the OB/OD landfill unit. The removal action will be completed prior to the first exercise. No other adverse impacts are expected, therefore, there are no recommended mitigative actions to reduce or eliminate environmental impacts from the proposed action. Military Activities: The following mitigative actions will be taken to reduce potential impacts to military activities that are currently conducted on the range: Each Navy HE training event will be conducted within a block of no more than 10 days. All known unexploded ordnance (UXO) will be disposed of within seven days of the 10-day HE block of range time, with roads being cleared first. Navy training exercises will be coordinated with other on-ground training missions, such as missions that VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:12 Jun 30, 2006 Jkt 208001 are part of the Avon Park Air Ground Training Complex. Comments Received on the Final EIS: The Navy received a single letter regarding the Final EIS during the 30day No Action Period. The letter, from the USEPA, concluded that EPA’s initial concerns regarding the Draft EIS had been adequately addressed in the Final EIS but continued to emphasize the need to ensure functional replacement for the wetlands’ value lost from this action. As previously discussed in the Water Resources subsection of the Consequences section, the Navy has chosen several target locations within the Alpha Plus ATPA for initial target placement. A wetland delineation was performed for the area encompassed by these locations. The USACOE concluded that no jurisdictional wetlands existed within these areas, therefore no permit is required under the Clean Water Action Section 404 permitting process. If in the future the Navy feels it needs to move target locations within the ATPA, it will ensure that the process for addressing impacts to wetlands is followed. Navy also received a comment letter from the Florida State Clearinghouse after the 30-day No-Action Period ended, forwarding comments from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP). FDEP repeated two comments made during their earlier review of the Draft EIS. They requested an Environmental Monitoring Plan (EMP) to formally establish baseline water quality conditions, parameters, and annual reporting requirements. FDEP also reiterated prior concern about the former open burn/open detonation (OB/ OD) site within the Alpha Plus area. A formal EMP is not necessary to assure compliance with applicable statutes. Modeling and analysis done in support of the EIS indicated a small possibility of munitions constituents of concern making their way to the surficial aquifer but it is not anticipated to impact groundwater resources used for potable purposes. The Navy’s assessment is based on a number of factors. While the modeling contains the assumption that no UXO cleanup would be done during a 10-year period of maximum use, the Navy has committed to completing UXO clearance after every exercise. Additionally, there is an intermediate aquifer that isolates the Floridan aquifer from the surficial aquifer. The Navy will also work closely with the Air Force to implement DoD Instruction (DODI) 4715.14. This instruction requires military ranges to assess whether a release of munitions PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 constituents of concern has occurred off range and the risk to human health and the environment. When finished, the Air Force is required to release the results to the public. The Navy, as stated earlier in this ROD, has committed to funding the removal of the OB/OD landfill units located in the Alpha Plus ATPA and is working with FDEP to ensure full compliance. Removal of this unit, which is the only RCRA permitted unit within the Alpha Plus ATPA, will be complete in 2006. Response actions regarding impacts to any of the environmental restoration program sites in APAFR resulting from Navy training activities, including an inadvertent impact of ordnance, would be coordinated with the EPA, the FDEP, and other relevant stakeholders. Summary: In determining how best to expand APAFR’s capabilities to allow the Navy to conduct all components of ‘‘air-to-ground ordnance delivery and training’’ of integrated and sustainment levels of the FRTP at the range, a critical element of which is delivery of HE ordnance, I considered impacts to the following areas: Airspace, noise, range safety, earth resources, water resources, air quality, land use and recreation, biological resources, socioeconomics, cultural resources, environmental justice, hazardous waste and materials, and military activities. I have also taken into consideration the Navy’s consultation with the USFWS regarding endangered species, the SHPO regarding cultural resources, and the USACOE regarding wetlands. I have also considered the comments sent to the Navy by the regulatory community, state and local governments, and the public. After carefully weighing all of these factors, I have determined that alternative 6, use of the Alpha Plus range for HE air-to-ground ordnance delivery combined with the common element activities, will best meet the needs of the Navy while minimizing the environmental impacts associated with the re-introduction of HE ordnance to the APAFR. Dated: June 21, 2006. BJ Penn, Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Installations and Environment). [FR Doc.
