Notice of Filing of Plats of Survey; New Mexico, 63013-63014 [E8-25127]

Download as PDF sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 205 / Wednesday, October 22, 2008 / Notices U.S.; (2) description and analysis of several transmission line route revisions; (3) revision of components of the Environmentally Superior Alternatives for northern and southern transmission line routes. A 45-day public comment period on the Recirculated/Supplemental Draft ended on August 25, 2008. The proposed project, as well as other transmission alternatives, would require an amendment to one of the following BLM land use plans: the California Desert Conservation Area Plan (as amended) and the Eastern San Diego County Planning Unit Management Framework Plan because the route alignments would deviate from BLM designated utility corridors in several areas. Based on a careful review of the resource data in the FEIR/EIS, full consideration of all public comments received, and a determination of which alternative best meets the agency project objectives, the BLM’s Agency Preferred Alternative is the Final Environmentally Superior Southern Route (SWPL) Alternative. This alternative is described in the FEIR/EIS at Section ES.2.4 and depicted on Figure ES–4, including the BCD/BCD South Option Reroute, except and unless easements can be secured by SDG&E for the Interstate 8 Alternative between McCain Valley Road and the eastern end of the Modified Route D Alternative in place of the BCD/BCD South Option Reroute. In either configuration (the Interstate 8/ Modified Route D or the Interstate 8/ BCD/BCD South), the BLM’s Agency Preferred alternative would achieve all three CPUC and BLM project objectives and most SDG&E project objectives. The Interstate 8 Alternative west of McCain Valley Road is shorter in length, located in a less remote area, and would result in fewer significant, unmitigable impacts to biological resources, recreation, and visual resources than would the BCD/BCD South Option Reroute. Because SDG&E may not be able to secure easements for the Interstate 8 Alternative between McCain Valley Road and the eastern end of the Modified Route D Alternative, BLM proposes to amend the existing land use plan for Eastern San Diego County to provide a one-time exception to the plan requirement that new gas, electric, and water transmission facilities and cables for interstate communication be allowed only within designated corridors. The proposed plan amendment would apply to the public lands along the BCD/BCD South Option Reroute portion of the Final Environmentally Superior Southern Route (SWPL) Alternative. As described in DEIR/EIS Section A.6.2, the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:50 Oct 21, 2008 Jkt 217001 BLM’s decision regarding the approval of any route and plan amendment would be made in a Record of Decision to be issued in late 2008 or early 2009. As noted above, instructions for filing a protest with the Director of the BLM regarding the proposed land use plan amendment may be found at 43 CFR 1610.5. Protests are specific to the proposed land use plan amendment. Email and faxed protests will not be accepted as valid protests unless the protesting party also provides the original letter by either regular mail or overnight delivery service postmarked by the close of the protest period. Under these conditions, the BLM will consider the e-mail or faxed protest as an advance copy and it will receive full consideration. If you wish to provide the BLM with such advance notification, please direct faxed protests to the attention of the BLM protest coordinator at 202–208–5010, and emails to Brenda_HudgensWilliams@blm.gov. All protests, including the follow-up letter (if emailing or faxing) must be in writing and mailed to the following address: Regular Mail: Director (210), Attention: Brenda Williams, P.O. Box 66538, Washington, DC 20035. Overnight Delivery Service: Director (210), Attention: Brenda Williams, 1620 L Street, NW., Suite 1075, Washington, DC 20036.

Background The BLM established the 14,830-acre Moquith Mountain WSA in 1980 upon determining that the public lands that now comprise the WSA contain wilderness characteristics of naturalness, outstanding opportunities for solitude, and primitive and unconfined recreation values. The Wilderness Act (16 U.S.C. 1131–1136) and section 603 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (43 U.S.C. 1782) provided the authority for establishing the WSA. The BLM Kanab Field Office in Kane County, Utah manages the WSA. The following supplementary rules are proposed to implement the Vermilion Management Framework Plan (MFP) Amendment and associated Decision Record (August 2000) with respect to motorized dispersed camping at two sites within the WSA. These sites, which are known as Sand Spring and the dry lake bed, are located on the periphery of the Coral Pink Sand Dunes. The northern portion of the Coral Pink Sand Dunes (approximately 1,500 acres) is part of the Moquith Mountain WSA. The remaining 2,000 acres of the Dunes are within Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park. No distinctive land form features separate BLM and State Park lands. Recreation facilities in the Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park consist of a 22unit developed campground (with water, rest room, and shower facilities), a day-use area, parking lot, interpretive board walk, utility facilities and an office. The BLM administers the nineunit Ponderosa Grove Campground at the northern end of the sand dunes. Facilities at Ponderosa Grove include picnic tables, grills, and fire rings, vault toilets, and limited vehicle parking. At times during the year, especially on holiday weekends, these developed E:\FR\FM\22OCN1.SGM 22OCN1
