SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The increase in operational flexibility, reliability, and capacity are intended to accommodate peak demand levels and to allow maintenance of the pipeline. The limitations and age of the original equipment, significant system modifications, and increased demands constrain the ability of the SCC to function at the system’s original design capacity. Because of these limitations, COMB is forced to rely on water stored in Lauro, Ortega, and Carpinteria reservoirs to meet regional water needs. In addition, no redundant supply or pipeline exists to convey Cachuma Project water or State Water Project (SWP) water to the South Coast if the Tecolote Tunnel or the Upper Reach of the SCC is out of service due to scheduled and/or unexpected repairs. As the Upper Reach of the SCC has the largest demand deficit and is located upstream from the sources of demand, the proposed action would allow more water flow farther along the pipeline to PO 00000 Frm 00117 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 improve the level of service and reliability. The proposed action would also provide COMB the ability to perform regularly scheduled inspections and maintenance to one pipeline while the second is operational. Operational flexibility would increase due to the ability to provide higher flow rates to CDMWTP and increased flow rates to facilities downstream of the CDMWTP during times of peak demands. The total amount of water delivered per year, however, would not increase. Potential alternatives include different alignments of the pipeline which would still meet the purpose and need, as well as pumping structures and or disinfection facilities. A no action alternative would include construction of site improvements and operational activities that could occur without issuance of Federal permits. The EIS/EIR will evaluate the potential impacts of the project on Indian Trust Assets (ITAs), which are held in trust by the U.S. Government for Indian Tribes or individual Tribal members. Potential ITAs include water rights, lands, minerals (i.e., oil, gas, sand), and hunting and fishing rights.

South Coast Conduit Secondary Pipeline, Santa Barbara County, 
California

AGENCY: Bureau of Reclamation, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of Intent to prepare an environmental impact statement/
environmental impact report (EIS/EIR).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) and the Cachuma 
Operation and Maintenance Board (COMB) are planning to prepare a 
combined EIS/EIR for the proposed construction of a second pipeline 
adjacent to the South Coast Conduit (SCC) between the South Portal of 
the Tecolote Tunnel (SPTT) and the Corona Del Mar Water Treatment Plant 
(CDMWTP) for the purposes of increasing the operational flexibility, 
reliability, and the conveyance capacity of the SCC, accommodating peak 
demand levels, and allowing maintenance of the pipeline.
    The project site is located in Glen Annie Canyon, north of the City 
of Goleta, in Santa Barbara County, California. The project site 
encompasses the area surrounding the existing SCC between the SPTT and 
the CDMWTP.

DATES: Reclamation and COMB will hold a scoping meeting to seek public 
input on topics, issues, and alternatives to be considered in the EIS/
EIR. The scoping meeting will be held on May 17, 2007 from 7 p.m. to 9 
p.m. in Santa Barbara, California.
    Send written comments on the scope of alternatives and impacts to 
be considered to Mrs. Laura Myers at the below address by close of 
business Friday, June 15, 2007

ADDRESSES: The scoping meeting will be held at the COMB office, 3301 
Laurel Canyon Road, Santa Barbara, California.
    Send written comments on the scope of the EIS/EIR to Mrs. Laura 
Myers, Bureau of Reclamation, 1243 N Street, Fresno, California 93721.

levels and to allow maintenance of the pipeline. The limitations and 
age of the original equipment, significant system modifications, and 
increased demands constrain the ability of the SCC to function at the

reservoirs to meet regional water needs. In addition, no redundant 
supply or pipeline exists to convey Cachuma Project water or State 
Water Project (SWP) water to the South Coast if the Tecolote Tunnel or 
the Upper Reach of the SCC is out of service due to scheduled and/or 
unexpected repairs.
    As the Upper Reach of the SCC has the largest demand deficit and is 
located upstream from the sources of demand, the proposed action would

activities that could occur without issuance of Federal permits.
