In the Matter of Certain Flash Memory Chips, Flash Memory Systems, and Products Containing Same; Notice of a Commission Determination Not To Review an Initial Determination Terminating the Investigation, 62297-62298 [E6-17770]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 205 / Tuesday, October 24, 2006 / Notices natural resources management agency where the corridor is located. The USIBWC, in coordination with the USFWS, is developing approximately 30 acres of new wetlands as mitigation for levee improvements throughout the LRGFCP. Common Levee System Proposed Action and Alternatives No Action Alternative The No Action Alternative was evaluated as the single alternative action to the Proposed Action. The No Action Alternative will retain the current configuration of the Common Levee System, with no impacts to biological and cultural resources, land use, and soil, community resources, or environmental health. In terms of flood protection, however, current containment capacity under the No Action Alternative may be insufficient to fully control Rio Grande flooding under severe storm events, with associated risks to personal safety and property. rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES1 Proposed Action Biological Resources. The Common Levee System corridor runs primarily through agricultural areas. Approximately 1 mile of the total length of the 5.2-mile levee system runs along two units of the LRGV National Wildlife Refuge. No thorn woodland will be removed along the levee expansion, while 3.9 acres of low density woodland will be removed along Anzalduas Dike. The 3.9 acres along the Anzalduas Dike represent 10 percent of the total area of thorn woodland within the Common Levee System (including both the Common Levee and the Anzalduas Dike areas). A single wetlands/open water area located within the Common Levee ROW is located outside the 100-foot buffer area for the proposed levee expansion, and will not be affected by construction activities. Removal of T&E species habitat, including woodland habitat suitable for the ocelot, would be minimal along the Common Levee System corridor. For other species whose habitat is potentially present near the levee corridor, construction activities will be scheduled to minimize impacts to those species and their habitat. Cultural Resources. No areas of high probability for the occurrence of unknown prehistoric archaeological sites have been reported along the Common Levee System, and none were identified during the current archival research conducted in preparation of the EA. Preliminary investigations indicate that two historic-age resources exist VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:25 Oct 23, 2006 Jkt 211001 within the current Mission Levee ROW and are engineering elements of the levee system. These resources will undergo minor modifications at the levee tie-ins, or may undergo a moderate visual impact by the encroachment of the expanded levee footprint. Water Resources. The Common Levee System was evaluated with the updated hydraulic model to determine if changes to water surface elevations will be affected by the proposed improvements to the levee system. As in the case of the Mission Levee System, a minimum change in floodwater surface elevation, less than 1 inch, is anticipated as a result of the levee height increase. Land Use. The proposed expansion of the Common Levee System will occur entirely within the ROW. No urban development is located near the proposed levee expansion area. The expansion will remove approximately 62 acres of herbaceous vegetation along the Common Levee and approximately 6 acres of herbaceous vegetation along the Anzalduas Dike. Alignment of the levee expansion will be adjusted to minimize removal of established wooded vegetation along the Gabrielson and Cottam Units of the LRGV National Wildlife Refuge. Anzalduas Dam County Park, where Anzalduas Dike is located, will be temporarily affected during project construction. No impacts to agricultural lands are anticipated. Community Resources. Improvements to the Common Levee System, individually or in combination with the Mission Levee System, represent an influx of federal funds into Hidalgo County that will have a positive local economic impact; however, the benefit will be limited to the construction period and represents less than 0.2 percent of the annual county employment, income, and sales values. No adverse impacts to disproportionately high minority and low-income populations were identified. Minimum utilization of public roads during construction is anticipated; a temporary increase in use of the access road will be required for equipment mobilization to staging areas. Environmental Health Issues. Construction of the Common Levee System represents less than 1 percent of the Hidalgo County annual emissions inventory for five air criteria pollutants. Moderate increases in ambient noise levels will result from excavation and fill activities, with no transient or longterm exposures above threshold values for adverse impacts. No waste storage or disposal sites were identified within the expanded levee footprint and its vicinity. PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62297 Best Management Practices and Mitigation. Engineering design measures will include optimization of the levee expansion alignment to the extent possible to avoid impact to sensitive vegetation and natural resources management areas within the LRGV National Wildlife Area. Mitigation for cultural resources, as required, will be coordinated between the Texas Historic Commission and the USIBWC. During construction, BMPs include development of a storm water pollution prevention plan to minimize impacts of receiving waters, including use of sediment barriers and soil wetting to minimize erosion. Following construction, expanded levees and the construction corridor will be promptly revegetated using native herbaceous indigenous species.
