Notice of Availability (NOA). AGENCY: rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES ACTION: SUMMARY: The Department of the Army announces the availability of an FEIS for the implementation of the decision to station a new Infantry Brigade Combat Team (IBCT) and other combat support units at Fort Carson, Colorado, and the potential stationing of a Combat Aviation Brigade (CAB) at Fort Carson in the future. DATES: The waiting period will end 30 days after the publication of an NOA in the Federal Register by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. ADDRESSES: For specific questions regarding the FEIS, please contact: Fort Carson National Environmental Policy Act Coordinator, 1638 Elwell Street, Building 6236, Fort Carson, CO 80913– 4000 or via e-mail at CARSDECAMNEPA@conus.army.mil. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Dee McNutt, Fort Carson Public Affairs Office, at (719) 526–1269, during normal business hours. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Proposed Action and analysis in the FEIS includes constructing new facilities at Fort Carson to support an IBCT and other combat support units (approximately 3,900 additional Soldiers and their dependents) and the potential stationing of a CAB (approximately 2,800 Soldiers and their dependents), upgrading ranges at Fort VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:34 Feb 04, 2009 Jkt 217001 Carson, and increased use of live-fire training ranges and maneuver areas at Fort Carson and the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site (PCMS). Implementation of the Proposed Action is anticipated in 2009 and would begin following the signing of the Record of Decision (ROD). The Proposed Action does not include the expansion of PCMS or any construction at PCMS. The GTA EIS is not directly related to the Fort Carson or Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site (PCMS) Transformation EISs published in 2007. Those EISs analyzed actions that were separate from and independent of the GTA program. Further, those EISs were completed before the GTA action had been proposed and evaluated. The GTA actions combined with the Transformation actions will, however, produce cumulative effects that are analyzed in this GTA EIS. The stationing of additional BCTs and other force structure realignment actions across the Army was analyzed in the 2007 Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for Army Growth and Force Structure Realignment. The ROD determined that Fort Carson would receive an additional IBCT and other combat support units contingent on sitespecific NEPA analysis. This FEIS is that site-specific analysis of the environmental and socioeconomic impacts of alternatives for implementing the Army’s previous stationing decision. The FEIS also analyzes the potential stationing of a CAB. The FEIS analyzes the impacts of several alternatives for construction of the IBCT facilities and the No Action alternative. Under the No Action alternative, the stationing of a new IBCT and CAB at Fort Carson would not be implemented. The No Action alternative provides the baseline conditions for comparison to the Proposed Alternative. After reviewing the alternatives presented in the EIS, the Army has selected the Operational Training Readiness Center alternative for the siting of IBCT facilities as its preferred alternative. Copies of the FEIS are available at local libraries surrounding Fort Carson and PCMS and may also be accessed at http://www.aec.army.mil. Comments from the public will be considered before any final decision is made. Dated: January 26, 2009. Addison D. Davis, IV, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army (Environment, Safety and Occupational Health). [FR Doc.

Notice of Record of Decision. SUMMARY: The Department of the Navy (Navy), after carefully weighing the operational and environmental consequences of the proposed action, announces its decision to upgrade carrier berthing (Berth LIMA) at Naval Air Station (NAS) North Island to comply with current nuclear-powered aircraft carrier (CVN) facility requirements. The minor infrastructure improvements include construction of: A fender system, mooring bollards, security building, and antiterrorism (AT)/force protection (FP) improvements, as well as the installation of information systems, electrical and mechanical utility upgrades, paving, drainage, and site improvements. In addition, the Navy announces its intent to implement additional vehicular traffic mitigation measures to address new facts and circumstances relevant to traffic. Although the 2008 Traffic Study included in the 2008 Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) shows that direct traffic impacts have not changed significantly since they were studied in the 1999 Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS), additional traffic mitigation measures minimize the cumulative effects of vehicular traffic when three homeported aircraft carriers are simultaneously in port.

Notice of Record of Decision for the Final Supplemental 
Environmental Impact Statement for Developing Homeport Facilities for 
Three NIMITZ-Class Aircraft Carriers in Support of the U.S. Pacific 
Fleet at Naval Air Station North Island, Coronado, CA

AGENCY: Department of the Navy, DoD.

ACTION: Notice of Record of Decision.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of the Navy (Navy), after carefully weighing 
the operational and environmental consequences of the proposed action, 
announces its decision to upgrade carrier berthing (Berth LIMA) at 
Naval Air Station (NAS) North Island to comply with current nuclear-
powered aircraft carrier (CVN) facility requirements. The minor 
infrastructure improvements include construction of: A fender system, 
mooring bollards, security building, and antiterrorism (AT)/force 
protection (FP) improvements, as well as the installation of 
information systems, electrical and mechanical utility upgrades, 
paving, drainage, and site improvements. In addition, the Navy 
announces its intent to implement additional vehicular traffic 
mitigation measures to address new facts and circumstances relevant to 
traffic. Although the 2008 Traffic Study included in the 2008 Final 
Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) shows that direct 
traffic impacts have not changed significantly since they were studied 
in the 1999 Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS), additional 
traffic mitigation measures minimize the cumulative effects of 
vehicular traffic when three homeported aircraft carriers are 
simultaneously in port.
