Notice on Outer Continental Shelf Oil and Gas Lease Sales, 24966 [2010-10692]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES 24966 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 87 / Thursday, May 6, 2010 / Notices Reclamation has identified the need for expedited action to reduce hydrologic, static, and seismic risks under its Safety of Dams (SOD) Program and security issues under its Security Program. These identified risks are among the highest risks for all dams in Reclamation’s inventory, and the Folsom Facility is among Reclamation’s highest priorities within its SOD Program. Both Reclamation and the Corps have conducted engineering studies to identify potential corrective measures for the Folsom Facility to alleviate seismic, static, and hydrologic dam safety issues and flood management concerns. These two Federal agencies have combined their efforts resulting in (1) a Joint Federal Project for addressing Reclamation’s dam safety hydrologic risk and the Corps’ flood damage reduction objectives and (2) other stand-alone flood damage reduction and dam safety actions to be completed by the respective agencies in a coordinated manner. The MIAD Modification Project Final Supplemental EIS/EIR discusses the project background, purpose and need, project description, and proposed action. Responses to all comments received from interested organizations and individuals on the Draft Supplemental EIS/EIR during the public review period and at the public meetings are addressed in the Final Supplemental EIS/EIR. The Final Supplemental EIS/EIR addresses the impacts of project construction on aquatic resources, terrestrial vegetation and wildlife, hydrology, water quality, flood control, groundwater, water supply, socioeconomics, cultural resources, soils, minerals, geological resources, visual resources, transportation and circulation, land use, planning and zoning, recreation resources, public services and utilities, air quality, public health and safety, growth inducement, noise, environmental justice, and Indian trust assets. There is the potential for significant impacts to air quality, recreation resources, and visual resources. The MIAD Modification Project proposed action considered by the lead agencies is the alternative that includes: • Cellular open excavation as the preferred method to excavate and replace the downstream MIAD foundation to reduce seismic (earthquake) risks associated with the downstream foundation. • Placement of an overlay on the downstream side of MIAD to address seismic (earthquake) risks associated with the upstream foundation and VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:53 May 05, 2010 Jkt 220001 installation of filters and drains to reduce static (seepage and piping) risks. • Creation of up to 80 acres of riparian habitat mitigation and 5 acres of seasonal wetland mitigation at Mississippi Bar.
