Proposed Collection; Comment Request, 31191-31192 [E8-12089]

Download as PDF sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 105 / Friday, May 30, 2008 / Notices letters, as well as oral comments submitted at two public meetings held in Hondo, Texas, on December 2, 2004. After carefully reviewing all comments received, as well as additional information about the project proposal submitted by SGR, SEA decided to prepare a Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (SDEIS). The SDEIS focused on three specific matters: (1) To seek to avoid potential impacts to the historically sensitive Quihi area, it evaluated three Eastern Alternative rail routes that were not studied in detail in the DEIS and compared these three alternative routes to the four rail routes previously studied in the DEIS and to the No-Action Alternative; (2) it discussed the progress of additional historic property identification efforts following issuance of the DEIS; and (3) it provided an additional noise analysis that SEA performed based on updated operational data provided by SGR indicating that trains may operate during nighttime hours. The three eastern alternative rail routes evaluated in the SDEIS are (1) The Eastern Bypass Route, (2) the MCEAA Medina Dam Alternative, and (3) SGR’s Medina Dam Modified Route. SEA also determined that a more detailed study of three rural historic landscape districts in the area (the Quihi Rural Historic District, the New Fountain Rural Historic District, and the Upper Quihi Rural Historic District) was warranted. This study was completed and included in the SDEIS. In response to the SDEIS, SEA received 237 written comments. The FEIS provides a summary of all the comments received on the DEIS and SDEIS with SEA’s corresponding responses. In response to concerns raised during the SDEIS process, the FEIS presents the Modified Eastern Bypass Route, a modification to the Eastern Bypass Route. The modification would follow the same right-of-way as the Eastern Bypass Route, but instead of bisecting the Weiblen property and Castoville West Subdivision, it would closely follow property lines to the extent practicable to minimize adverse impacts to the Weiblen and Castroville West properties, and finally connect to the Proposed Route in the southern end of the alignment before connecting to the UP main line. SEA has concluded that the following Eastern Alternatives (the Eastern Bypass Route, the Modified Eastern Bypass Route, and the MCEAA Medina Dam Alternative) would be the environmentally preferred alignments. Should the Board authorize construction and operation of the proposed rail line, SEA recommends VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:52 May 29, 2008 Jkt 214001 that it authorize all of these routes, subject to the 91 environmental mitigation measures set out in this FEIS. These conditions, which address a number of environmental resource areas, such as groundwater; surface water and wetlands; traffic safety; noise and vibration; biological resources; air quality; land use; and historic preservation, would minimize the potential adverse environmental effects of the construction and operation of the proposal. One of the conditions requires compliance with a Programmatic Agreement, which has been signed by all the necessary parties, setting out a process for addressing potential impacts to historic sites under any of the Eastern Alternatives. Issuance of this FEIS completes the Board’s environmental review process. The Board will now make a final decision on the proposed project. In the interest of bringing this matter to closure, the Board will act as promptly as possible. In making its final decision on the proposed project, the Board will consider the entire environmental record, including all public comments, the DEIS, the SDEIS, the FEIS, and SEA’s final recommended mitigation. No project-related construction may begin until the Board’s final decision has been issued and has become effective. Parties who wish to file an administrative appeal of the Board’s final decision may do so in writing within 30 days from the publication of the notice of the FEIS. SEA anticipates that EPA will publish its Notice of Availability of the FEIS in the Federal Register on June 6, 2008 and that the deadline for filing administrative appeals will be July 7, 2008. Decided: May 30, 2008. By the Board, Victoria Rutson, Chief, Section of Environmental Analysis. Anne K. Quinlan, Acting Secretary. [FR Doc.
