Extension of Agency Information Collection Activity Under OMB Review: Aircraft Operator Security, 79498-79499 [E8-30735]

Download as PDF 79498 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 249 / Monday, December 29, 2008 / Notices We may modify this plan in light of public comment received during the scoping process. This information will be used as a basis for selecting the proposed action from alternatives under consideration. Analysis of this information may also be used to develop additional alternatives not listed below that can be considered. Possible Alternatives Alternatives currently being considered for future Coast Guard action include: • Adopting the interim rule as a final rule without changes. This will allow the current level of DCR discharges to continue in limited areas of the Great Lakes and under certain conditions. For the purposes of our environmental review in this second EIS, this represents the ‘‘no-action’’ alternative; • Adopting a final rule based on the interim rule, but with changes designed to reduce the potential environmental impact of DCR discharges. Possible changes would be specified and could include: Æ Adoption of the mandatory use of DCR control measures; • Control measures on vessels, and/or • Control measures at the loading and unloading facilities; Æ DCR quantity discharge limits; • DCR quantity limits could be scaled according to vessel class, size and/or route length; Æ Cargo type discharge limits; or Æ Additional restrictions on DCR discharge locations; • Prohibit all DCR discharges in the Western Basin • Zero-Discharge Alternative. This is not an exhaustive list of alternatives. We intend to be guided by data on DCR discharges and DCR control measures and by consideration of all public comments. dwashington3 on PROD1PC60 with NOTICES Scoping Process Public scoping is an early and open process for determining the scope of issues to be addressed in this second EIS and for identifying the issues related to the proposed action that may have a significant effect on the Great Lakes environment. The scoping process begins with publication of this notice and ends after the Coast Guard has: • Invited the participation of Federal, State, and local agencies, any affected Indian tribe, and other interested persons; Æ The Coast Guard has requested the Environmental Protection Agency, the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Marine Fisheries Service, the National Park Service, and the United States Army Corps of Engineers VerDate Aug<31>2005 13:19 Dec 24, 2008 Jkt 217001 to serve as cooperating agencies in the preparation of this second EIS. With this Notice of Intent, we are asking Federal, State, and local agencies with jurisdiction or special expertise with respect to environmental issues in the Great Lakes region, in addition to those we have already contacted, to formally cooperate with us in the preparation of this tiered EIS. • Determined the scope and the issues to be analyzed in depth in the second EIS; Æ From our first EIS, we have identified this preliminary list of environmental resources to receive attention in the second EIS: • Sediment physical structure • Protected and Sensitive Areas • Benthic Community • Invasive Species • Socioeconomic Resources • Identified and eliminated from detailed study those issues that are not significant or that have been covered elsewhere (for example, we do not anticipate detailed study of the following environmental resources that we determined, in the first EIS, to have ‘‘no impact’’ from DCR discharges: fish and other pelagic organisms, waterfowl, and recreational or commercial fishing); • Allocated responsibility for preparing the tiered EIS components; • Indicated any related environmental assessments or environmental impact statements that are not part of the tiered EIS; • Identified other relevant environmental review and consultation requirements, such as Coastal Zone Management Act consistency determinations, and threatened and endangered species and habitat impacts; • Indicated the relationship between timing of the environmental review and other aspects of the application process; and • Exercised our option under 40 CFR 1501.7(b) to hold the public scoping meeting announced in this notice. Once the scoping process is complete, the Coast Guard will prepare a draft second EIS, and we will publish a Federal Register notice announcing its public availability. If you wish to be mailed or e-mailed the announcement of the second EIS’s notice of availability, please contact the person named in FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT or send a request to be added to our contact mailing list along with your name and mailing address or an e-mail address online, by fax, mail, or hand delivery according to the Submitting Comments instructions above. If you provide comments on this notice, we will automatically add your contact information to our contact mailing list PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and you will automatically be sent an announcement of the draft second EIS’s notice of availability. We will provide the public with an opportunity to review and comment on the draft second EIS. After the Coast Guard considers those comments, we will prepare the final second EIS and similarly announce its availability and solicit public review and comment. Dated: December 19, 2008.
