Proposed Reinstatement of Terminated Oil and Gas Lease CACA 45619, 35409 [E8-14096]

Download as PDF mmaher on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 121 / Monday, June 23, 2008 / Notices The BLM in Oregon will analyze the use of up to 18 herbicide active ingredients approved for use in the national Vegetation Treatments Using Herbicides on BLM Lands in 17 Western States EIS and ROD completed by the BLM in 2007. The purpose of the Oregon EIS is to: • Evaluate the effects of using up to 18 nationally approved herbicide active ingredients for treatment of noxious weeds; for treatment of invasive vegetation and other weeds in administrative sites, recreation sites, and rights-of-way; for treatment of forest pests and diseases; and to achieve noncommodity landscape health objectives. • Incorporate the Risk Assessments, Standard Operating Procedures, and Mitigation Measures for herbicide application outlined in the National Programmatic EIS. • Provide the necessary context and analysis of environmental effects that will enable each of the nine BLM Districts in Oregon to prepare National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) analyses on site-specific projects and treatments. The EIS will not evaluate herbicide use directed specifically at commodity production such as livestock forage production and timber production. The National Programmatic EIS and Environmental Report completed in 2007 for the 17 western states (http:// www.blm.gov/wo/st/en/prog/more/ veg_eis.html ) provided a programmatic analysis of the effects of using herbicides for treating vegetation on BLM lands in the western U.S., including Alaska. That EIS did not specifically address which herbicides, and in what quantities, would be used in Oregon. The Oregon EIS will tier to the National EIS. The Oregon EIS will, however, identify which herbicides will be available for use in Oregon and how those herbicides will be used as part of an integrated vegetation treatment program and provide Oregon-specific environmental effects of their use. Subsequent project-specific NEPA analyses will be conducted at the fieldoffice level before individual projects are carried out. The BLM has initially identified the following issues for analysis in the Oregon-wide programmatic EIS: • Effects to fish and other non-target aquatic organisms; • Effects to water quality; • Effects to wildlife and other nontarget terrestrial organisms; • Public and worker health and safety; • Treatment-effectiveness; and, • Cost-effectiveness.
