ACTION: Notice of Intent. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Carson City District Office, Carson City, Nevada, intends to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for Sierra Pacific Power Company’s Blackhawk to Heybourne Transmission Line Project which will run through Storey, Lyon, Carson City and Douglas counties. This notice announces the beginning of the scoping process and solicits input on the identification of issues. DATES: The BLM will accept comments until October 31, 2008. The BLM will announce public scoping meetings through local news media, mailings, and the BLM Web site http://www.blm.gov/ nv/st/en/fo/carson_city_field.html at least 15 days prior to each meeting. ADDRESSES: Submit written comments to: • BLM Carson City District Office, Attn: Blackhawk EIS Project Manager, 5665 Morgan Mill Road, Carson City, NV 89701. • Fax: (775) 885–6147. • E-mail: blackhawkeis@blm.gov. Documents pertinent to this proposal may be examined at the Carson City District Office. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For further information and to have your name added to the Blackhawk EIS mailing list, call Mark Struble, (775) 885–6107; or e-mail blackhawkeis@blm.gov. The BLM Carson City District Office will prepare an EIS for the Blackhawk to Heybourne Transmission Line Project (Project) to analyze the direct, indirect, and cumulative impacts resulting from construction of a new 120 kV electrical transmission line and two new substations proposed in a right-of-way (ROW) application submitted by Sierra Pacific Power Company. The proposed Project includes the construction of approximately 34 miles of an electrical 120 kV transmission line through four counties in Nevada, beginning at the proposed new Blackhawk Substation in Storey County. From the proposed jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:26 Sep 23, 2008 Jkt 214001 Blackhawk Substation four new 120 kV transmission lines would run parallel, crossing U.S. Highway 50, for approximately four miles where two of the lines would fold into an existing transmission line north of the Carson River. From that point the remaining two lines would continue southwest, crossing the Carson River, and running eight miles to the existing Dayton Substation in Lyon County. From the Dayton Substation one transmission line would run south over two miles, then west approximately six miles, parallel with existing lines to the existing Brunswick Substation in Carson City. From the Brunswick Substation the transmission line parallels existing powerlines straight south for approximately seven miles to the existing Prison Hill Substation in Carson City. At this point the line would parallel an existing line south for less than a mile before turning west for approximately three and a half miles in a new corridor through a saddle in Hot Springs Mountain and across the Douglas County water treatment facility, then south for approximately one mile paralleling an existing line and terminating at the proposed new Heybourne Substation in Douglas County. The proposed transmission line runs parallel with existing transmission lines along all but the first four miles in Storey and Lyon counties and three and a half miles in Douglas County. The BLM will work closely with interested parties to identify the best possible alternatives and management decisions that will take into account local, regional, and national needs and concerns. The purpose of the public scoping process is to determine relevant issues that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis, including alternatives, and guide the EIS process. The EIS will address issues brought forth through scoping and will be evaluated by an interdisciplinary team of BLM and other agency specialists. A range of alternatives and mitigating measures will be considered to evaluate and minimize environmental impacts and to assure that the proposed actions do not result in undue or unnecessary degradation of public lands. Federal, State, and local agencies and other individuals or organizations that may be interested in or affected by the BLM decision on the Blackhawk to Heybourne Transmission Line Project are urged to participate in the EIS process. It is important that those interested in the proposed activities participate in the scoping and commenting processes of the EIS. PO 00000 Frm 00108 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Written comments may be provided to the BLM at the public scoping meetings or may be submitted to the BLM using one of the methods listed in the Addresses section above.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: As required by 43 CFR 2310.3–1, notice is hereby given that on the behalf of the United States Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management proposes to extend Public Land Order No. 6776 for a 20-year period. This order withdrew approximately 8,950 acres of National Forest System land from surface entry and mining to protect the natural, scenic, and recreational values, and the investment in federal funds in the North Cascades Scenic Highway Zone. The withdrawal created by Public Land Order No. 6776 will expire on April 17, 2010, unless extended. This notice also gives an opportunity to comment on the proposed action and to request a public meeting. DATES: Effective Date: Comments and requests for a public meeting must be received by December 23, 2008. ADDRESSES: Comments and meeting requests should be sent to the Oregon/ Washington State Director, BLM, P.O. Box 2965, Portland, Oregon 97208– 2965. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Gregory B. Graham, OkanoganWenatchee National Forest, 509–664– 9262, or, Charles R. Roy, Bureau of Land Management Oregon/Washington State Office, 503–808–6189. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The United Stated Forest Service has filed an application to extend Public Land Order No. 6776 (55 FR 14422 (1990)) lands from location and entry under the mining laws for a 20 year period, subject to valid existing rights. The areas described aggregates approximately 8,950 acres in Chelan, Okanogan, Skagit, and Whatcom Counties. The use of a right-of-way, interagency agreement, or cooperative agreement would not adequately constrain nondiscretionary uses and would not provide adequate protection of the Federal investment in the improvements located on the land. There are no suitable alternative sites with equal or greater benefit to the government. PO 00000 Frm 00109 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55129 No additional water rights will be needed to fulfill the purpose of the requested withdrawal.
