SDG&E also proposes to build two new 230 kV lines connecting the Central substation to the existing Sycamore Canyon substation and one new 230 kV line between the Sycamore Canyon substation and the existing Pe±asquitos Substation. The total length of the Project is estimated to be approximately 130 to 150 miles, of which roughly 40 to 60 miles would be located in Imperial County. The proposed 500 kV line transmission line would be constructed in part on BLM administered lands within the California Desert Conservation Area, as managed by the El Centro Field Office, and within San Diego County, as managed by the Palm Springs/South Coast Field Office. The remainder of the line would cross lands in various ownership, including private, State, and local agencies. The proposed transmission line(s) will utilize 120–170 foot tall structures, spaced approximately 700–1,600 feet apart. It would occupy a right-of-way of approximately 200–300 feet in width. Existing disturbed corridors would be utilized to the extent feasible, to minimize potential environmental impacts. Where possible, SDG&E anticipates locating new facilities within or along existing rights-of-way. The 500 kV transmission line would traverse approximately 30 to 35 miles of BLM administered lands in Imperial County, and approximately one mile in San Diego County. A plan amendment to the CDCA Plan (1980) will be required because the Project would deviate from BLM designated utility corridors within the California Desert Conservation Area (Imperial County). Through public scoping, BLM expects to identify various issues, potential impacts and mitigation measures, and alternatives to the proposed action. At present, BLM has identified a preliminary list of issues that will need to be addressed in this analysis, including the impacts of the proposed project on visual resources, agricultural lands, air quality, plant and animal species including special status species, cultural resources, and watersheds. Other issues identified by BLM are impacts to the public in the form of noise, traffic, accidental release of hazardous materials, and impacts to urban, residential, and recreational areas. Members of the public are invited to identify additional issues and concerns to be addressed. BLM will analyze the proposed action and no action alternatives, as well as VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:29 Aug 30, 2006 Jkt 208001 other possible alternatives to the project. Your comments concerning the proposed project and feasible alternative locations, possible mitigation measures, and any other information relevant to the proposed action are encouraged. Additional informational meetings may be conducted throughout the process to keep the public informed of the progress of the EIS/EIR. Dated: July 20, 2006. J.

Notice; correction. AGENCY: ACTION: Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3003, of the intent to repatriate cultural items in the possession of the Thomas Burke Memorial Washington State Museum (Burke Museum), University of Washington, Seattle, WA, that meet the definition of ‘‘unassociated funerary objects’’ under 25 U.S.C. 3001. This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3). The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the cultural items. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. This notice replaces a Notice of Intent To Repatriate Cultural Items previously published in the Federal Register on December 28, 2005, (FR Doc. 05–24509, pages 76865–76866). This notice replacement is necessary, as reevaluation of the collection has resulted in a change in the number and description of the cultural items. The 13 cultural items are 7 partial beaded necklaces (beads include glass trade beads, shell beads, and copper beads), 1 bracelet fragment, 3 sets of beads (1 of which includes 8 small bone fragments), 1 piece of twine, and 1 petrified twig. At an unknown date, the 13 cultural items were removed from a small island PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51849 just upriver from Blalock Island in the lower Columbia River, Benton County, WA, by Mr. John Tomaske, an archeology graduate student of the University of Washington. In 1960, the cultural items were donated to the University of Washington Department of Anthropology, and subsequently transferred to the Burke Museum and accessioned in 1973 (Burke Accn. 1973– 8). Accession information indicated the presence of burials at the site. According to Mr. Tomaske, the burials had previously been disturbed and exhibited evidence of cremation. The human remains are not in the possession of the Burke Museum. The small island just upriver from Blalock Island described in museum records could be Cook’s Island, which was formerly recorded as containing cremation burials. Archaeological evidence for Cook’s Island supports the presence of cremation burials. Cremation and burial on islands in the Columbia River were customary practices of the Umatilla. It was also the practice of the Umatilla that individuals were buried with many of their personal belongings. The area surrounding Blalock Island was heavily utilized by the Umatilla, including ama’amapa, which served as a habitation area, burial site, and stronghold from enemies. On Blalock Island, and along the Washington side of the Columbia River, the Umatilla had a permanent camp, Yep-po-luc-sha (or Yep-po-kuc-sha), as well as a fishing area. Burial practices and funerary objects described are consistent with historic practices of the present-day Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation, Oregon. The area surrounding Blalock Island is within the aboriginal territory of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation, Oregon and the land claims boundaries of the Indian Claims Commission decision of 1960. Officials of the Burke Museum have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the 13 cultural items described above are reasonably believed to have been placed with or near individual human remains at the time of death or later as part of the death rite or ceremony and are believed, by a preponderance of the evidence, to have been removed from a specific burial site of a Native American individual. Officials of the Burke Museum also have determined that, pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between funerary objects and the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Reservation, Oregon.

Notice of Intent To Repatriate Cultural Items: Thomas Burke 
Memorial Washington State Museum, University of Washington, Seattle, 
WA; Correction

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice; correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Notice is here given in accordance with the Native American Graves 
Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), 25 U.S.C. 3003, of the intent 
to repatriate cultural items in the possession of the Thomas Burke 
Memorial Washington State Museum (Burke Museum), University of 
Washington, Seattle, WA, that meet the definition of ``unassociated 
funerary objects'' under 25 U.S.C. 3001.
    This notice is published as part of the National Park Service's 
administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3). The 
determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the 
museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the cultural 
items. The National Park Service is not responsible for the 
determinations in this notice.
    This notice replaces a Notice of Intent To Repatriate Cultural 
Items previously published in the Federal Register on December 28, 
2005, (FR Doc. 05-24509, pages 76865-76866). This notice replacement is 
necessary, as reevaluation of the collection has resulted in a change 
in the number and description of the cultural items.
    The 13 cultural items are 7 partial beaded necklaces (beads include 
glass trade beads, shell beads, and copper beads), 1 bracelet fragment, 
3 sets of beads (1 of which includes 8 small bone fragments), 1 piece 
of twine, and 1 petrified twig.
    At an unknown date, the 13 cultural items were removed from a small 
island just upriver from Blalock Island in the lower Columbia River, 
Benton County, WA, by Mr. John Tomaske, an archeology graduate student 
of the University of Washington. In 1960, the cultural items were 
donated to the University of Washington Department of Anthropology, and 
subsequently transferred to the Burke Museum and accessioned in 1973

burials at the site. According to Mr. Tomaske, the burials had 
previously been disturbed and exhibited evidence of cremation. The 
human remains are not in the possession of the Burke Museum.

On Blalock Island, and along the Washington side of the Columbia River, 
the Umatilla had a permanent camp, Yep-po-luc-sha (or Yep-po-kuc-sha), 
as well as a fishing area.
    Burial practices and funerary objects described are consistent with

within the aboriginal territory of the Confederated Tribes of the 
Umatilla Reservation, Oregon and the land claims boundaries of the 
Indian Claims Commission decision of 1960.

believed to have been placed with or near individual human remains at 
the time of death or later as part of the death rite or ceremony and

from a specific burial site of a Native American individual. Officials

reasonably traced between funerary objects and the Confederated Tribes 
of the Umatilla Reservation, Oregon.
