Temporary Closure of Public Lands: Broadwater County, MT, 57347 [E7-19702]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 194 / Tuesday, October 9, 2007 / Notices We are currently reviewing the comments received on the proposed rule and preparing responses as appropriate. Section 4(g)(1) of the ESA requires that we implement a system, in cooperation with the States, to effectively monitor, for not less than 5 years, the status of all species that have been recovered and delisted. Additionally, we are to make prompt use of the emergency listing authority under section 4(b)(7) of the ESA if the recovered species is presented with significant risk to its well being. In order to meet the ESA’s monitoring requirement, and to facilitate the efficient collection of data, we have designed a plan to detect changes in the status of the WVNFS. The WVNFS draft PDM Plan was developed in cooperation with the State resources agencies of West Virginia and Virginia and Virginia and the U.S. Forest Service. Our West Virginia Field Office (WVFO) will have the lead agency responsibility for this monitoring effort, and will coordinate all phases of implementation of the plan and ensure that monitoring requirements outlined within the plan are accomplished. The draft PDM Plan proposes to conduct monitoring annually for at least 10 years. The primary focus will be on WVNFS habitat and implementation of plans or agreements to protect and manage habitat. Distribution and persistency throughout its range will also be monitored. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Viewing Documents The supporting documents for the draft PDM Plan is available for inspection, by appointment, during normal business hours at our WVFO (see ADDRESSES).
