To improve scientific understanding of the downstream ecosystem, periodic experimental releases from Glen Canyon Dam were conducted in water years 1996 through 2006. Non-flow actions were also conducted, including removal of non-native fish and translocation of the endangered Kanab ambersnail and humpback chub. Specific experimental actions included: • 1996 test of a Beach Habitat Building Flow (BHBF) at 45,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) and translocation of endangered Kanab ambersnail. • 2000 test of Low Steady Summer Flows at 8,000 cfs. • 2003—2005 block of experimental actions which included: Æ Translocation of endangered humpback chub above Chute Falls. Æ Winter fluctuating fish suppression releases (5,000 to 20,000 cfs). Æ Mechanical removal of non-native fish near the confluence of the Little Colorado River to benefit the humpback chub. Æ Fall constrained releases to test the conservation of sediment (6,500 to 9,000 cfs). Æ 2004 test of a BHBF at 42,000 cfs immediately following Paria River sediment inputs. In addition, drought-induced reductions in Lake Powell elevations caused an increase in dam release temperatures during 2003 to 2005. Considerable monitoring and research on endangered fish, sediment conservation, and other resources in the Grand Canyon were conducted in concert with these actions. Among other documents related to adaptive management experimentation, two Environmental Assessments and Findings of No Significant Impacts were prepared: Proposed Experimental Releases from Glen Canyon Dam and Removal of Non-Native Fish (2002) and Proposed Experimental Actions for Water Years 2005–2006—Colorado River, Arizona, in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and Grand Canyon National Park (2004). These two documents can be found at the following Internet location: http:// www.usbr.gov/uc/rm/gcdltep/ index.html. Proposed Action The proposed action is to develop and adopt a Long-Term Experimental Plan that will implement a structured, longterm program of experimentation (including dam operations, modifications to Glen Canyon Dam intake structures, and other non-flow VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:00 Dec 11, 2006 Jkt 211001 management actions, such as removal of non-native fish species) in the Colorado River below Glen Canyon Dam. Purpose and Need for Action The purpose of the proposed action is to increase scientific understanding of the ecosystem downstream from Glen Canyon Dam and to improve and protect important downstream resources. Specific hypotheses to be addressed include the effect of dam release temperatures; ramp rates; non-native control; and the timing, duration, and magnitude of BHBF releases. Adoption of a Long-Term Experimental Plan is needed to ensure a continued, structured application of adaptive management in such a manner as to protect, mitigate adverse impacts to, and improve the values for which Grand Canyon National Park and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area were established, including, but not limited to natural and cultural resources and visitor use, consistent with applicable Federal law. Adoption of a Long-Term Experimental Plan will assist scientists, policy makers, and resource managers to better understand resource management options, tradeoffs and consequences, and assist in the long-term operations of Glen Canyon Dam. Scoping The range of alternatives for the proposed action will be developed following recommendations provided by the AMWG and through information received from upcoming public scoping meetings. In addition, Reclamation will utilize information developed through prior meetings of the AMWG, Technical Work Group, and Science Planning Group as relevant information for the purposes of scoping the upcoming NEPA process and to develop the appropriate scope of analysis pursuant to 40 CFR 1508.25. Public Disclosure It is our practice to make comments, including names, home addresses, home telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses of respondents, available for public review. Individual respondents may request that we withhold their names and/or home addresses, etc., but if you wish us to consider withholding this information you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comments. In addition, you must present a rationale for withholding this information. This rationale must demonstrate that disclosure would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of privacy. Unsupported assertions will not meet this burden. In the absence of exceptional, PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 documentable circumstances, this information will be released. We will always make submissions from organizations or businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses, available for public inspection in their entirety.

grants the motion, or otherwise modifies the date on which the 
Commission's remand determination is due to the Court, the Commission 
intends to issue an amended notice and schedule.
