Public Land Order (PLO) No. 7653, 70 FR 76854–76858 (December 28, 2005), withdrew approximately 308,600 acres of public lands from surface entry and mining for the purpose of evaluating a suite of alternative rail alignments along the Caliente Corridor, as described in the DOE’s Final Environmental Impact Statement for a Geologic Repository for the Disposal of Spent Fuel and HighLevel Radioactive Waste at Yucca Mountain, Nye County, Nevada, February 2002. The evaluation is for the potential construction, operation, and maintenance of a rail line which would be used to transport spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste to the proposed Yucca Mountain Repository as part of the DOE’s responsibility under the Nuclear Waste Policy Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 10101 et seq. The DOE has identified an additional 68,646 acres of public lands for evaluation along the Caliente Corridor. Since PLO No. 7653 can not be amended to add lands, the DOE has filed this new withdrawal application for those additional lands. The DOE’s withdrawal application also includes 139,391 acres of public lands for the purpose of evaluating the potential construction, operation, and maintenance of a rail line along a suite of alternative rail alignments referred to by the DOE as the ‘‘Mina Route.’’ The width of the withdrawal is 1 mile. The expiration date for this proposed withdrawal would be the same as the expiration date for PLO No. 7653, which is December 27, 2015. The use of a right-of-way, interagency agreement, or cooperative agreement would not adequately constrain nondiscretionary uses that could irrevocably affect the evaluation of these lands for a potential rail line alignment. There are no suitable alternative sites, since the lands described identify the alternative alignments that need to be evaluated. VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:22 Jan 09, 2007 Jkt 211001 No water rights will be needed to fulfill the purpose of the withdrawal. Possible mineral deposits present in the above-described land areas include some locatable and salable minerals. For a period of 90 days from the date of publication of this notice, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the proposed withdrawal may present their views in writing to the BLM Nevada State Director. Comments, including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the BLM Nevada State Office, 1340 Financial Blvd., Reno, Nevada, during regular business hours, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays. Individual respondents may request confidentiality. If you wish to withhold your name or address from public review or from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comments. Such requests will be honored to the extent allowed by the law. All submissions from organizations or businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses, will be made available for public inspection in their entirety. Notice is hereby given that in addition and subsequent to the 90-day public comment period mentioned above, there will be at least one public meeting in connection with the proposed withdrawal to be announced at a later date. A notice of the time, place, and date will be published in the Federal Register and a local newspaper at least 30 days before the scheduled date of a meeting. This withdrawal proposal will be processed in accordance with the regulations set forth in 43 CFR part 2300. For a period of 2 years from the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the lands described above will be segregated as specified above unless the application is denied or cancelled or the withdrawal is approved prior to that date. Licenses, permits, cooperative agreements, or discretionary land use authorizations of a temporary nature which will not significantly impact the purpose of the proposed withdrawal may be allowed with the approval of the authorized officer of the BLM during the segregative period.

ACTION: Notice of Availability, Final Environmental Impact Statement, Wellton-Mohawk Title Transfer. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) has prepared a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) to evaluate the potential effects of the proposed Wellton-Mohawk Title Transfer. The title transfer would transfer ownership and divest Reclamation of the responsibility for the operation, maintenance, management, regulation of, and liability for the identified project facilities and appurtenant lands to the WelltonMohawk Irrigation and Drainage District (District). This title transfer would consolidate management responsibility with the District, thereby allowing them to have greater authority in the management of growth and land-based issues in the Wellton-Mohawk Valley, protect against encroachment on agriculture, and consolidate ownership of lands, facilities, and the Gila River Flood Channel. ADDRESSES: To obtain a compact disc or paper copy of the FEIS, please e-mail Christa Monaco at cmonaco@lc.usbr.gov or write Ms. Monaco at the Bureau of Reclamation, Lower Colorado Regional Office, P.O. Box 61470, Boulder City, NV 89006–1470. A copy of the FEIS is available for public review and inspection on the Region’s Web site at http://www.usbr.gov/lc under ‘‘Latest News and Info’’, or at the following locations: • Wellton-Mohawk Irrigation and Drainage District, 30570 WelltonMohawk Drive, Wellton, AZ, telephone: (928) 785–3351.

and mining through December 27, 2015, to evaluate the lands for the 
potential construction, operation, and maintenance of a rail line for 
the transportation of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive 
waste in the event the Nuclear Regulatory Commission authorizes a 
geologic repository at Yucca Mountain as provided for under the Nuclear 
Waste Policy Act of 1982, as amended. This notice segregates the lands 
from surface entry and mining for up to 2 years while various studies 
and analyses are made to support a final decision on the withdrawal 
application.

The lands in the Mina Corridor aggregate 139,391 acres in Esmeralda, 
Lyon, and Mineral Counties.

    Public Land Order (PLO) No. 7653, 70 FR 76854-76858 (December 28, 
2005), withdrew approximately 308,600 acres of public lands from 
surface entry and mining for the purpose of evaluating a suite of 
alternative rail alignments along the Caliente Corridor, as described 
in the DOE's Final Environmental Impact Statement for a Geologic 
Repository for the Disposal of Spent Fuel and High-Level Radioactive 
Waste at Yucca Mountain, Nye County, Nevada, February 2002. The 
evaluation is for the potential construction, operation, and 
maintenance of a rail line which would be used to transport spent 
nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste to the proposed Yucca 
Mountain Repository as part of the DOE's responsibility under the 
Nuclear Waste Policy Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 10101 et seq.
    The DOE has identified an additional 68,646 acres of public lands 
for evaluation along the Caliente Corridor. Since PLO No. 7653 can not 
be amended to add lands, the DOE has filed this new withdrawal 
application for those additional lands.
    The DOE's withdrawal application also includes 139,391 acres of 
public lands for the purpose of evaluating the potential construction, 
operation, and maintenance of a rail line along a suite of alternative 
rail alignments referred to by the DOE as the ``Mina Route.'' The width 
of the withdrawal is 1 mile.
    The expiration date for this proposed withdrawal would be the same 
as the expiration date for PLO No. 7653, which is December 27, 2015.
    The use of a right-of-way, interagency agreement, or cooperative 
agreement would not adequately constrain non-discretionary uses that 
could irrevocably affect the evaluation of these lands for a potential 
rail line alignment.
    There are no suitable alternative sites, since the lands described 
identify the alternative alignments that need to be evaluated.
    No water rights will be needed to fulfill the purpose of the 
withdrawal.
    Possible mineral deposits present in the above-described land areas 
include some locatable and salable minerals.
    For a period of 90 days from the date of publication of this 
notice, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or 
objections in connection with the proposed withdrawal may present their 
views in writing to the BLM Nevada State Director.
    Comments, including names and street addresses of respondents, will 
be available for public review at the BLM Nevada State Office, 1340 
Financial Blvd., Reno, Nevada, during regular business hours, 7:30 a.m. 
to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays. Individual 
respondents may request confidentiality. If you wish to withhold your 
name or address from public review or from disclosure under the Freedom 
of Information Act, you must state this prominently at the beginning of 
your comments. Such requests will be honored to the extent allowed by 
the law. All submissions from organizations or businesses, and from 
individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of 
organizations or businesses, will be made available for public 
inspection in their entirety.
    Notice is hereby given that in addition and subsequent to the 90-
day public comment period mentioned above, there will be at least one 
public meeting in connection with the proposed withdrawal to be 
announced at a later date. A notice of the time, place, and date will 
be published in the Federal Register and a local newspaper at least 30 
days before the scheduled date of a meeting.
    This withdrawal proposal will be processed in accordance with the 
regulations set forth in 43 CFR part 2300.
    For a period of 2 years from the date of publication of this notice 
in the Federal Register, the lands described above will be segregated 
as specified above unless the application is denied or cancelled or the 
withdrawal is approved prior to that date.
    Licenses, permits, cooperative agreements, or discretionary land 
use authorizations of a temporary nature which will not significantly 
impact the purpose of the proposed withdrawal may be allowed with the 
approval of the authorized officer of the BLM during the segregative 
period.

(Authority: 43 CFR 2310.3-1(a))

     Dated: October 30, 2006.

Deputy State Director, Natural Resources, Lands, and Planning.
