Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board; Meeting, 58044-58045 [E9-26983]

Download as PDF srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES 58044 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 216 / Tuesday, November 10, 2009 / Notices acres of public land in Southern California. The proposed 400 MW generation project would be constructed in three phases: (1) 100 MW (Ivanpah 1) and the shared administrative complex/ construction logistics area; (2) 100 MW (Ivanpah 2); and (3) 200 MW (Ivanpah 3). The project site is located entirely on public land approximately 4.5 miles southwest of Primm, Nevada. These concentrating solar energy power plants would use distributed power tower and heliostat (mirror) technology, in which heliostat fields focus solar energy on power tower receivers near the center of each heliostat array. The completed 400 MW project would incorporate seven 459-foot tall power towers and approximately 214,000 heliostats (each holding two flat mirrors). Each of the three proposed plants (Ivanpah 1, 2, and 3) would have an individual power block with steam turbine, air-cooled condenser, switchyard, and generation tie-line. The three plants would share access roads, two groundwater wells and water lines, an administrative/ maintenance complex, a new substation, a new 5.3-mile natural gas pipeline, and temporary construction staging areas. The DEIS addresses the impacts of the entire 400 MW generation project and does not analyze the environmental impacts for each phase of development separately. The plants would be connected to the Southern California Edison (SCE) electric power grid through upgrades to SCE’s electric transmission line passing through the site and the new substation. The three phases would take several years to construct. Once completed, the solar power plants are expected to operate for 50 years or more. Construction of the first phase of the project is anticipated to begin in 2010 and be completed in 2013. On November 6, 2007, the BLM published in the Federal Register a Notice of Intent (72 FR 62671) to prepare an EIS and Staff Assessment jointly with the CEC under NEPA and the California Environmental Quality Act. The BLM and CEC held public scoping meetings in January 2007 and have held a series of public workshops since then to discuss project changes and mitigation measures. Potential impacts to specific resources such as groundwater (quality and quantity), threatened and endangered species (desert tortoise), vegetation, visual resources, desert bighorn sheep, domestic livestock grazing, and recreation on the Ivanpah Dry Lake were identified during scoping and analyzed in the DEIS. The DEIS evaluates alternatives to approve the proposed action, approve VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:45 Nov 09, 2009 Jkt 220001 with modifications, or deny the ROW application for the ISEGS project as proposed. The BLM will also consider the DRMPA to the California Desert Conservation Area Plan to allow for the ISEGS project. The DEIS analyzed 22 alternative site locations and technologies to the ISEGS project. None of these 22 alternatives met the BLM purpose and need for the proposed action and as such were eliminated from detailed analysis. Resources that may be affected include, but are not limited to: Desert tortoise, visual resources, cultural resources, ephemeral stream channels, soils, and vegetation. Please note that public comments and information submitted including names, street addresses, and e-mail addresses of respondents will be available for public review and disclosure at the above addresses for the BLM California State Office and Needles Field Office during regular business hours (8 a.m. to 4 p.m.), Monday through Friday, except holidays. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you may ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
