SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Statutory Authority WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES Section 9 of the ESA and its implementing Federal regulations prohibit the ‘‘taking’’ of a species listed as endangered or threatened. The term take is defined under the ESA to mean harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct. Harm is defined to include significant habitat modification or degradation where it actually kills or injures wildlife by significantly impairing essential behavioral patterns, including breeding, feeding, and sheltering. Harass is defined as an intentional or negligent act or omission which creates the likelihood of injury to wildlife by annoying it to such an extent as to significantly disrupt normal behavioral patterns including breeding, feeding, and sheltering. We may issue permits, under limited circumstances, to allow the take of listed species incidental to, and not the purpose of, otherwise lawful activities. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service regulations governing permits for endangered species are in 50 CFR 17.22 and regulations governing permits for threatened species are in 50 CFR 17.32. National Marine Fisheries Service regulations governing permits for threatened and endangered species are at 50 CFR 222.307. Background The Permit applications are related to the operation and maintenance of Kent’s Clark Springs Water Supply System adjacent to Rock Creek, King County, Washington. The Clark Springs Water Supply System consists of a spring-fed infiltration gallery and three well pumps. This facility is located adjacent VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:23 Apr 22, 2010 Jkt 220001 to Rock Creek 1.8 miles upstream of the creek’s confluence with the Cedar River. The facility is surrounded by 320 acres of Kent-owned land that is geographically separated from the City of Kent. Covered activities can be summarized as follows: • Diversions of ground and surface water under Kent’s existing water rights via infiltration gallery, well pumps, and infrastructure; • Operation and maintenance of Clark Springs Water Supply facilities; • Maintenance of 320 acres of Kentowned property as it relates to the protection of its water supply; and • Operation and maintenance of a water augmentation system for the enhancement of instream flows. The Permit applications Kent submitted to the Services address the potential take of three ESA-listed threatened species and six unlisted species that may be affected by Kent’s water withdrawal activities at the Clark Springs facility in the Rock Creek Watershed. The listed species under FWS jurisdiction is the bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus), listed as threatened. Unlisted species under FWS jurisdiction include coastal cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarki clarki), Pacific lamprey (Lampetra tridentatus), and river lamprey (L. ayresi). Listed species under NMFS jurisdiction are the Puget Sound Chinook salmon (O. tshawytscha) and Puget Sound steelhead trout (O. mykiss), both listed as threatened. Unlisted species under NMFS jurisdiction include coho salmon (O. kisutch), chum salmon (O. keta), and sockeye salmon (O. nerka). We formally initiated an environmental review of the project through publication of a Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement in the Federal Register on June 19, 2006 (71 FR 35286). That notice also announced a public scoping period during which interested parties were invited to provide written comments expressing their issues or concerns relating to the proposal, and to attend a public scoping meeting held in Kent, Washington. Based on public scoping comments, we prepared a DEIS to analyze the effects of alternatives on the human environment. Alternative 2 in the DEIS is described as implementation of Kent’s Plan, FWS issuance of a Permit for bull trout and other unlisted species, and NMFS issuance of a Permit for Chinook salmon, steelhead trout, and other unlisted species should they become listed in the future. The other alternative analyzed in the DEIS was Alternative 1, No-Action, under which Kent would continue operating the PO 00000 Frm 00126 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21345 Clark Springs facility without benefit of incidental take coverage from the Services. We provide this notice under ESA and NEPA regulations. We will evaluate the application, associated documents, and comments submitted thereon to determine whether the application meets the requirements of the ESA and NEPA. We will then prepare the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS). Our decisions of whether to issue incidental take permits on the application will be made upon completion of the FEIS and the ESA determination.
