Download as PDF pwalker on PROD1PC69 with NOTICES 78464 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 250 / Friday, December 29, 2006 / Notices Ecology will be a joint lead with Reclamation in the preparation of this Environmental Impact Statement. Ecology has indicated that under SEPA they will evaluate a range of alternatives that include both storage, the subject of the Yakima River Basin Water Storage Feasibility Study, and non-storage components. As a result the jointly prepared EIS will provide NEPA coverage for storage alternatives that Reclamation may consider as part of the Yakima River Basin Water Storage Feasibility Study as well as SEPA coverage for a broader range of alternatives that Ecology may consider. The alternatives being investigated by Reclamation include additional storage of Yakima River water, as well as water exchanges with the Columbia River. The in-basin alternatives would entail diverting excess water flows from the Yakima River after all water rights and fish target flows are met. Previous Yakima River Basin investigations, such as the Yakima River Basin Water Enhancement Program and the Watershed Management Plan for the Yakima River Basin, are being used to develop in-basin water storage alternatives. The water exchange alternatives would involve new storage and the pumping of water from the Columbia River. The Black Rock Dam and Reservoir alternative would pump 3,500 or 6,000 cfs from above Priest Rapids to a reservoir east of the city of Yakima which would then be delivered to irrigation districts downstream of the city. Deliveries from Black Rock Reservoir would offset existing diversions from the Yakima River. Those foregone diversions would be used to improve flows for anadromous fish and provide additional supplies in drought years to existing irrigators beyond what would otherwise have been available. Water stored as part of the project would not be used to expand irrigation in the Yakima Basin. An alternative which would pump water from the mouth of the Yakima River would involve a storage reservoir in the Yakima Basin to re-regulate irrigation flow releases for the benefit of instream flows and a water exchange to reduce some Yakima River diversions. Other combinations of storage and pumping of water from the Columbia River for delivery by exchange to the Yakima River Basin may be identified during the public scoping process. Reclamation plans to conduct public scoping meetings to solicit input on the alternatives to augment water supplies in the Yakima River and impacts associated with those alternatives. Reclamation will summarize comments VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:15 Dec 28, 2006 Jkt 211001 received during the scoping meetings and letters received during the scoping period, identified under the Dates section, into a scoping summary document which will be provided to those who submitted comments. The scoping summary will also be available to others upon request. If you wish to comment, you may mail us your comments as indicated under the Addresses section. Our practice is to make comments, including names, home addresses, home phone 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, 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation on November 4, 2005, based on a complaint filed by Toshiba Corporation of Tokyo, Japan (‘‘Toshiba’’) under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337. 70 FR 67192– 193 (November 4, 2005). The complainant alleged violations of section 337 in the importation and sale of certain flash memory devices and components thereof, and products containing such devices and components, by reason of infringement of claims 1–4 of U.S. Patent No. 5,150,178 (‘‘the ‘178 patent’’); claims 1, 6 and 7 of U.S. Patent No. 5,270,969 (‘‘the ‘969 patent’’); and claims 1 and 4 of U.S. Patent No. 5,517,449 (‘‘the ‘449 patent’’). The complainant named Hynix Semiconductor of Ischon-si, Republic of Korea, and Hynix Semiconductor America, Inc. of San Jose, California (collectively ‘‘Hynix’’) as respondents. On November 21, 2005, Toshiba moved for leave to amend the complaint to add claim 5 of the ‘178 patent. On December 2, 2005, the ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 4) granting the motion to amend the complaint. The Commission determined not to review this ID. An evidentiary hearing was held from July 5, 2006, through July 13, 2006. On November 65, 2006, the ALJ issued his final ID and recommended determination on remedy and bonding. The ALJL concluded that there was no violation of section 337. Specifically, he found that the asserted claims of the ‘178, ‘969, and ‘449 patents are not infringed and are not valid, and that there is no domestic industry involving the three patents. On November 17, 2006, complainant Toshiba, the Commission investigative attorney, and respondent Hynix petitioned for review of various portions of the final ID. On November 28, 2006, all parties filed responses to the petitions for review. Having examined the record of this investigation, including the ALJ’s final ID, the petitions for review, and the responses thereto, the Commission has determined not to review the ALJ’s ID, and has terminated the investigation.
