You may view the Draft EIS and related information on the USACE Web page at http:// www.nab.usace.army.mil/publications/ non-reg_pub.htm. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare a draft EIS was published by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the Federal Register (68 FR 2532) on January 17, 2003. The Mid-Chesapeake Bay Ecosystem Restoration was one of three actions specifically recommended by the USACE-Baltimore District’s Dredged Material Management Plan (DMMP) and Final Tiered Environmental Impact Statement (December 2005). The USACE is making the Draft Mid-Chesapeake Bay Island Ecosystem Restoration Integrated Feasibility Report and EIS available to the public for review and comment through a Notice of Availability published in the Federal Register. The recommendations of the draft MidChesapeake Bay report and EIS are: • Construction of a 2,072-acre fill area at James Island, consisting of approximately 55 percent tidal wetland habitat and 45 percent upland island habitat; • Construction and backfilling of sills at Barren Island to protect both the current acreage of the island and the adjacent submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV)/shallow water habitat, providing approximately 72 acres of wetland habitat on the northern and western portions of the island; and • If deemed necessary to protect the SAV, construction at Barren Island of a maximum of 3,350 feet of breakwater extending South from the southern tip of the existing island at a maximum height of plus 6 feet MLLW. James and Barren Islands have been identified by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and other natural resource management agencies as a valuable nesting and nursery area for many species of wildlife, including bald eagles, diamondback terrapins, and potentially horseshoe crabs. The project would restore James Island and protect Barren Island from further erosion. The Draft EIS documents the NEPA compliance and information specific to the actions for the proposed MidChesapeake Bay project. The Draft Integrated Feasibility report and EIS has been prepared in accordance with (1) NEPA of 1969, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), (2) regulations of the Council on Environmental Quality for implementing the procedural provisions VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:38 Sep 07, 2006 Jkt 208001 of NEPA (40 CFR parts 1500–1508), and (3) USACE regulations implementing NEPA (ER–200–2–2). USACE filed the Draft document with EPA on September 1, 2006 for the publication of Notice of Availability in the September 8, 2006 Federal Register. We must receive comments on or before October 23, 2006, to ensure consideration in final plan development. At both public meetings, the public will have an opportunity to present oral and/or written comments. All persons and organizations that have an interest in the Mid-Chesapeake Bay Integrated Ecosystem Restoration Feasibility Report and EIS are urged to participate in one or both meetings. Staff will be available one hour prior to the meeting start time. A Record of Decision may be signed no earlier than 30 days after the EPA Notice of Availability for the Final document. Your comments must be contained in the body of your message; please do not send attached files. Please include your name and address in your message.

AGENCY: SUMMARY: This document announces that the USEPA Administrator has responded to a citizen petition asking USEPA to object to a Clean Air Act (Act) Title V operating permit proposed by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM). Specifically, the Administrator has denied the petition submitted by Bunge North America (Bunge) to object to the proposed operating permit for Louis PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Dreyfus Agricultural Industries, LLC. (Louis Dreyfus). Pursuant to section 505(b)(2) of the Act, a petitioner may seek judicial review in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit for those portions of a petition which EPA denied. Any petition for review shall be filed within 60 days from the date this notice appears in the Federal Register, pursuant to section 307 of the Act. ADDRESSES: You may review copies of the final orders, the petitions, and other supporting information at the USEPA Region 5 Office, 77 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, Illinois 60604.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Act affords USEPA a 45-day period to review, and object to as appropriate, operating permits proposed by state permitting authorities. Section 505(b)(2) of the Act authorizes any person to petition the USEPA Administrator within 60 days after the expiration of the USEPA review period to object to state operating permits if USEPA has not done so. Petitions must be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the public comment period provided by the state, unless the petitioner demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise these issues during the comment period or the grounds for the issues arose after this period. On February 16, 2006, USEPA received from Bunge North America a petition requesting that USEPA object to the proposed title V operating permit for Louis Dreyfus Agricultural Industries, LLC. The petition raised two objections to the permit: (1) IDEM failed to respond adequately to comments filed on the draft permit; and (2) USEPA’s comments on the permit, summarized in IDEM’s response to comments, failed to provide clarity with respect to regulatory and policy determinations used in drafting the permit. On July 21, 2006, the Administrator issued an order denying the petition on both issues. In response to the first E:\FR\FM\08SEN1.SGM 08SEN1
