Notice of Filing of Plats of Survey; Montana, 36436 [2010-15481]

Download as PDF 36436 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 122 / Friday, June 25, 2010 / Notices The Winnemucca District Draft RMP/Draft EIS was developed through a collaborative planning process. The Winnemucca RMP decision area encompasses approximately 7.2 million acres of public land administered by the BLM Winnemucca District, which are located in Humboldt, Pershing, Lyon, Churchill and Washoe counties, Nevada. It does not include private lands, State lands, Indian reservations, Federal lands not administered by BLM or lands addressed in the Black Rock Desert-High Rock Canyon, Emigrant Trails National Conservation Area RMP EIS (July 2004). The Draft RMP/Draft EIS includes strategies for protecting and preserving the biological, wildlife, cultural, recreational, geological, educational, scientific, and scenic values while managing for sustainable development, energy and mineral development, and livestock grazing. Current guidance is provided by the Sonoma-Gerlach and Paradise-Denio Management Framework Plans (1982) and land use plan amendments (1999). The key issues raised during the planning process include landscape health, recreation, access, transportation routes, wilderness characteristics, and visual resources. Five alternatives, including a no-action alternative, were developed in response to these key issues. The alternatives also address air resources, biological resources, cultural resources, fire management, grazing management, hazardous materials, lands and realty, mineral and energy resources, Native American issues, social and economic conditions, soils, and water resources. The no action alternative, Alternative A, represents the current management of public lands within the Winnemucca District. The four action alternatives, Alternatives B through D, present reasonable, yet varying, management scenarios. The alternatives range from emphasizing maintenance of the naturalness of the Winnemucca District decision area, by restricting some human uses, to emphasizing continued human uses. Comments collected during the scoping process in 2005, during which four public open houses were held, were instrumental in determining the issues to be addressed. Through the Draft RMP/Draft EIS, the BLM is seeking public input on the developed alternatives that address these issues. The Winnemucca District’s preferred alternative is Alternative D which focuses on a balance between managing public lands for economic and recreational growth while protecting valuable resources. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:23 Jun 24, 2010 Jkt 220001 Alternative D also incorporates sustainable development principles and techniques to achieve this balance. The Osgood Mountains Milkvetch Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC) is the only special designation area currently within the Winnemucca District. The use limitations in this area include: closure to mineral material disposal (salable minerals); no surface occupancy and stipulations to accompany fluid and solid mineral leasing; locatable minerals withdrawn from entry; and Visual Resource Management (VRM) Class II. Alternative B mirrors the Alternative A management of the ACEC. Alternative C proposes to designate three new ACECs: Pine Forest, Raised Bog and Stillwater Range. Management of all four ACECs would be as follows: closed to mineral material disposal (salable minerals), fluid mineral and solid mineral leasing; locatable minerals withdrawn from entry; priority fire suppression areas; and VRM Class II. Alternative D is almost identical to the proposal in Alternative C and in addition the proposed ACECs would be closed to new communication sites. The proposed Pine Forest, Raised Bog, and Stillwater Range ACECs would be open for acquiring the rights to locatable minerals with special mitigation on operations. Alternative D proposes to manage the Osgood Mountains Milkvetch ACEC as a VRM Class III.
