SUMMARY: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Regulatory Branch has completed a Final EIS for the San Juan Creek Watershed/Western San Mateo Creek Watershed Special Area Management Plan (SAMP).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A previous Notice of Availability for this Final EIS was published on December 28, 2006.

Under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, the Corps is authorized to issue permits for activities that discharge dredged and/or fill materials into waters of the U.S., including wetlands, for roads, developments, utilities, and other activities. For the San Juan Creek and western San Mateo Creek Watersheds, the Corps is proposing a watershedbased SAMP to balance aquatic resource protection and reasonable economic development. The SAMP is an improvement over the current incremental case-by-case approach, which does a less effective job of taking a watershed perspective of aquatic resources and considering the needs of future permit applicants. The SAMP involves characterizing aquatic resource conditions and processes through the watershed, establishing alternative permitting procedures more appropriate for the given aquatic resources in the watershed, and developing a coordinated aquatic resources management framework. The Draft EIS was made available to the public on November 21, 2005. The Corps accepted written comments until January 16, 2006, and accepted oral PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1495 comments in a public hearing dated December 6, 2006.
