U.S. Agricultural Sales to Cuba: Certain Economic Effects of U.S. Restrictions, 35722 [E7-12657]

Download as PDF 35722 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 125 / Friday, June 29, 2007 / Notices Water Resources Improvements to the levee system would increase flood containment capacity to control the design flood event with a negligible increase in water surface elevation. Levee footprint expansion would not affect water bodies. Land Use The expansion would take place almost completely within the ROW and would not affect urban or agricultural lands. A minimum removal of woodland from natural resources management areas, less than 1 acre, would be required. Community Resources In terms of socioeconomic resources, the influx of federal funds into Hidalgo and Cameron Counties from the levee improvement project would have a positive local economic impact limited to the construction period; the impact would represent less than 1 percent of the annual county employment, income and sales values. No adverse impacts to disproportionately high minority and low-income populations were identified for construction activities. Moderate utilization of public roads is required during construction; a temporary increase in access road use would be required for equipment mobilization to staging areas. Environmental Health Issues Estimated air emissions of five criteria pollutants during construction represent from 0.06 percent to 1.64 percent of the Hidalgo and Cameron Counties annual emissions inventory. There would be a moderate increase in ambient noise levels due to excavation and fill activities. No long-term and regular exposure is expected above noise threshold values. A database search identified a number of waste storage or disposal sites in the levee system vicinity, all located within the City of Brownville. None of those sites would affect, or be affected, by the levee improvement project. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Best Management Practices and Mitigation Engineering design measures will be used, including optimization of the levee expansion alignment to avoid impacts on wooded vegetation, wetlands, and other natural resources. Best management practices during construction will include development of a storm water pollution prevention plan to avoid impacts to receiving waters, and use of sediment barriers and soil wetting to minimize erosion. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:20 Jun 28, 2007 Jkt 211001 To protect vegetation, the construction corridor may be revegetated with herbaceous or woody vegetation, as agreed with the natural resources management organization where the levee expansion corridor is located. To protect wildlife, construction activities will be scheduled to occur, to the extent possible, outside the March to August bird migratory season. To avoid significant impacts on cultural resources, an additional survey of archaeological and historical resources will be conducted following completion of the engineering design phase, and mitigation actions will be adopted as recommended by the Texas Historical Commission (THC). Measures to avoid or minimize potential impacts to historical or archaeological resources will be specified in a Memorandum of Agreement between THC and the USIBWC.
