Previously performed oyster restoration activities by the Norfolk District include: Construction of permanent oyster reef sanctuaries; seeding of reefs with disease resistant DEBYTM strain oysters; adaptive management and monitoring; and managed spat-on-shell production areas with oysters moved to other sites in the Bay as part of a genetic rehabilitation stocking effort. This work is being conducted under the authority provided by Section 704(b) of the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 1986, as amended. 7. Additional public scoping meetings will not be held for the NORMP and PEIS. This decision was driven primarily by the fact that the lead agencies conducted public scoping meetings in Maryland on the NORMP and PEIS in 2005, prior to the decision to prepare an integrated MarylandVirginia master plan. Also, during the 60-day public comment period following the publication of the Draft PEIS–ORCB (October 17–December 15, 2008), lead agencies coordinated a series of public meetings to receive comments on the document. This document included the alternative of expanding native oyster restoration, which received much public input; therefore, this input will adequately facilitate scoping for this phase of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) document development and will satisfy 40 CFR 1501.7. The USACE will conduct public meetings during the Draft NORMP/PEIS 45-day coordination and public review process scheduled for early 2011, and will include interested parties throughout the development of the PEIS through informational meetings, Web site postings, and other means. 8. All interested federal, state, and local agencies, interested private and public organizations, affected Indian tribes, and individuals are invited to submit written comments concerning the NORMP/PEIS within 30 days of the date of this notice. 9. The anticipated date of publication of the draft PEIS is March 2011. The PEIS will be prepared in accordance with (1) NEPA of 1969, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), (2) regulations of the Council on Environmental Quality for implementing the procedural provisions of NEPA (40 CFR parts 1500– 1508), and (3) USACE Procedures for Implementing NEPA (33 CFR part 230).
