Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 226 / Monday, November 26, 2007 / Notices 3. Key proposed project features to be evaluated in the DEIS include the following: a. Rehabilitation of turbines including Auto Venting Turbines to improve DO levels in the tailwaters. b. Minimum releases to ensure continuous flows between periods of generation. c. The effects of increased tailwater flows on tailwater parks, downstream fishing areas, adjacent low lying farmlands, erosion of riverbanks, cultural archaeological and historic sites, and changes to the hydraulics and hydrology of the rivers. d. Other alternatives studied will include: No Action; restoration to the ‘‘original’’ 1948 condition; refurbishing existing units; oxygenating water in the dam forebays prior to release; and spilling water through the sluice gates. 4. This notice serves to solicit scoping comments from the public; federal, state and local agencies and officials; Indian Tribes; and other interested parties in order to consider and evaluate the impacts of this proposed activity. Any comments received during the comment period will be considered in the NEPA process. Comments are used to assess impacts on fish and wildlife, endangered species, historic properties, water quality, water supply and conservation, economics, aesthetics, wetlands, flood hazards, floodplain values, land use, navigation, shore erosion and accretion, recreation, energy needs, safety, food and fiber production, mineral needs, considerations of property ownership, general environmental effects, cumulative effects, and in general, the needs and welfare of the people. Public meetings may be held, however, times, dates, or locations have not been determined. 5. Other federal, state and local approvals required for the proposed work include coordination with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. 6. Significant issues to be analyzed in depth in the DEIS include impacts to tailwater fisheries, recreation, economics, water quality, historic and cultural resources, streambank erosion, future power demands, and cumulative impacts. The DEIS should be available in January 2008. Bernard R. Lindstrom, Lieutenant Colonel, Corps of Engineers, District Engineer. [FR Doc.

The study evaluated the commercial navigation infrastructure needs of the GLSLS as it is currently configured, and does not make any recommendations related to the implementation of any physical project modifications. The study assessed ongoing maintenance and longterm capital requirements to ensure the continuing viability of the system, targeting the engineering, economic and environmental implications of those needs as they pertain to the marine transportation infrastructure upon which commercial navigation depends.
