Engineers for permanent impacts to approximately 93.3 acres of waters 
of the United States, including, 20.5 acres of wetlands, for the 
construction of various facilities in waters of the United States 
associated with the development of a new community composed of a broad

the U.S.) and not all the Federal action's direct and indirect 
emissions would be below specified de minimis thresholds (40 CFR 
93.153(b)). Pursuant to the general conformity regulations (40 CFR part 
93 Subpart B), general conformity determinations do not have to be 
included in the EIS and can be separately noticed, but the draft 
general conformity determination for the Federal action associated with 
the proposed project is being included in the Final EIS/EIR in this 
case.

determination and a Draft 404(b)(1) alternatives analysis, is available 
for public review during the next 30 days at the U.S. Army Corps of 
Engineers Ventura Office, 2151 Alessandro Drive, Suite 110, Ventura,

under Newhall Ranch) and it is also available via the CDFG's Web page: 
http://www.dfg.ca.gov/regions/5/newhall/. Any comments received by the 
Corps on the Final EIS/EIR or the included draft general conformity 
determination during the next 30 days will be considered fully before 
the Corps makes a final general conformity determination and finalizes 
the Record of Decision (ROD) for the Federal action associated with the 
proposed project. The Corps will publish a notice of a final general 
conformity determination in the Federal Register within 30 days of 
rendering a final decision. The public can request from the Corps 
copies of the ROD, which includes responses to comments on the Final 
EIS/EIR, including any on the draft general conformity determination, 
following publication of a final general conformity determination and 
upon execution of the ROD.
