The study proposes to consider a range of activities to restore riparian and aquatic habitat, and related habitat functions, in and adjacent to the Los Angeles River, which will benefit wildlife and sensitive species. DATES: Submit comments on or before December 29, 2008. ADDRESSES: Ms. Tiffany Bostwick, Environmental Coordinator, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District, Planning Division, CESPL–PD–RN, 915 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tiffany Bostwick, Environmental Coordinator, (213) 452–3845, or e-mail at Tiffany.R.Kayama@usace.army.mil. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1. Authorization. The proposed feasibility study was authorized under Congressional Resolution, which reads as follows: Senate Resolution, approved 25 June 1969, reading in part: ‘‘Resolved by the Committee on Public Works of the United States Senate, that the Board of Engineers for Rivers and Harbors, created under Section 3 of the River and Harbor Act, approved June 13, 1902, be, and is hereby requested to review the report of the Chief of Engineers on the Los Angeles and San Gabriel Rivers and Ballona Creek, California, published as House Document Numbered 838, Seventy-sixth Congress, and other pertinent reports, with a view to determining whether any modifications contained herein are advisable at the present time, in the resources in the Los Angeles County Drainage Area.’’ 2. Background. Historically, the Los Angeles River is subject to flooding and two of the largest floods in recorded history occurred in the 1930s, causing both a substantial loss of life and property damage. During the latter 1930s and 1940s the Federal Government (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) constructed the concrete flood control channel in the Los Angeles River to expedite movement of stormwater flows to the ocean for flood prevention, causing a complete loss of the natural hydrologic and hydraulic regime and the natural riparian environment. Development along most of the River is a mix of housing, industrial and commercial land uses that contribute to the overall degradation of the ecosystem. The City of Los Angeles, city residents, and other local agencies have expressed interest and support for a feasibility study that would evaluate the potential for restoration of the Los Angeles River’s aquatic ecosystem. The entire Los Angeles River travels through a highly urbanized area E:\FR\FM\28NON1.SGM 28NON1
