Download as PDF 55822 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 188 / Friday, September 26, 2008 / Notices Derelict Fishing Gear Removal A pilot project consisted of developing protocols and conducting initial removal efforts. After surveying, locating, and mapping derelict fishing gear, a minimum of 11 tons of lost and abandoned fishing gear was removed by licensed and certified divers. Nuisance Dam Removal Two small stone dams blocked fish migration, and degraded water quality and prey habitat conditions for anadromous fish. The dams, while only several feet high, also presented a public safety hazard. This project resulted in opening stream habitat to anadromous fish, restoring acres of tidal wetlands, and removal of a public safety hazard. Riparian Habitat Restoration Youth corps members were trained in the use of biorestoration and stabilization techniques to restore eroding riverbanks and improve habitat for salmon smolt and other fish species. Diadromous Fish Habitat Restoration Highly functional salmonid and wildlife habitat was restored with the cooperation of private landowners by opening silted enclosures along a slough to provide refuge for juvenile salmonids during the winter flood flows. Dated: September 22, 2008. James W. Balsiger, Acting Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, National Marine Fisheries Service. [FR Doc.

ACTION: Notice of availability. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District (Regulatory Division), in coordination with the Port of Los Angeles, has completed a Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) for the San Pedro Waterfront Project, encompassing approximately 400 acres of land and water primarily along the west side of the Main Channel westward to Harbor Boulevard from the Vincent Thomas Bridge southward to Inner Cabrillo Beach in the Port of Los Angeles. The Port of Los Angeles requires authorization pursuant to section 404 of the Clean Water Act, section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act, and section 103 of the Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act, to implement various regulated activities in and over waters of the U.S. associated with redeveloping San Pedro Waterfront, which would include the following elements: Promenade, Harbors, and Open Space Waterfront Promenade—Construct a continuous promenade approximately 30 feet wide along the west side of the Main Channel through the project area. Three New Harbors (North Harbor, Downtown Harbor, and 7th Street Harbor)—Develop three new harbors along the west side of the Main Channel to provide berthing for visiting tall ships, tugboats, and other vessels used for recreational, commercial, and other port-related purposes. This would require excavation and dredging to create the approximately 7 acres of new surface water. Cleaner material would to be disposed of at a designated ocean site (LA–2/LA–3), and unsuitable material to be disposed of at an approved upland site. In-harbor sites would also be considered if any become available. 7th Street Pier—The constructed 7th Street Pier would be the public dock for short-term berthing of visiting vessels and would be located within the 7th Street Harbor, adjacent to the Los Angeles Maritime Museum. Town Square—The Town Square would comprise approximately 0.79 acre in front of the historic San Pedro E:\FR\FM\26SEN1.SGM 26SEN1
