The no action alternative will also be evaluated. Alternatives for flood risk management include evaluation of the current levee system. Actions under this alternative may include setback levees to improve flood containment. Another alternative would study the effects of sediment removal and actions could include: sediment traps, dredging and selective gravel removal. Another alternative would focus on nonstructural actions such as flood proofing and education. The no action alternative will also be evaluated. These alternatives are not final and may change and/or new alternatives may develop during the scoping and NEPA process. A range of ecosystem restoration and flood risk management actions will be investigated and more than one option may be included in the preferred alternative. Additionally, a number of potential ecosystem restoration actions could meet ancillary flood risk management goals. 3. Scoping and Public Involvement: This notice of intent formally commences the scoping process under NEPA. As part of the scoping process, all affected Federal, state, and local agencies, Native American tribes, interested private organizations, including environmental interest groups and the general public are invited to comment on the scope of the draft FR/ EIS. Comments are requested concerning problems in the basin, possible project alternatives, mitigation measures, probable significant environmental impacts, and permits or other approvals that may be required. The environmental review process will be comprehensive and will satisfy the requirements of NEPA and other relevant Federal, state, and local environmental laws. The public scoping period will occur over a 30-day period to commence on September 24, 2010 and will extend through October 25, 2010. The Draft FR/EIS is expected to be available in November of 2011. 4. Scoping Meeting: One public scoping meeting will be held on October 7, 2010 to identify issues of major concern and obtain public input on the range and acceptability of alternatives. This meeting will be held at Mason County Public Works, 100 West Public Works Drive, Shelton, Washington, 98584.

ACTION: Notice of public release. AGENCY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:12 Sep 23, 2010 Jkt 220001 The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is announcing the public release of the 2010 version of the Causal Analysis/Diagnosis Decision Information System (CADDIS). This Web site was developed to help scientists find, develop, organize, and use environmental information to improve causal assessments of biological impairment. The CADDIS Web site was developed and prepared by EPA’s National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA), in the Office of Research and Development (ORD), and is available at http:// www.epa.gov/caddis. DATES: The 2010 CADDIS Web site will become publically available on September 24, 2010. Additional Information: For additional information on the CADDIS Web site, please contact the Information Management Team via mail: Mailcode 8601P, National Center for Environmental Assessment, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20460; telephone: 703– 347–8561; facsimile: 703–347–8691; or e-mail: caddis@epa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Over a thousand water bodies in the United States are listed by states as biologically impaired. For many of these sites, the cause of impairment is reported as ‘‘unknown.’’ Before appropriate management actions can be formulated for impaired water bodies, the causes of biological impairment (e.g., excess fine sediments, nutrients, toxics, and other stressors) must be identified. Effective causal analyses require knowledge of the mechanisms, symptoms, and stressor-response relationships for various stressors, as well as the ability to use that knowledge to draw appropriate, defensible conclusions. To aid in these causal analyses, NCEA developed CADDIS, a web-based decision support system to help regional, state, and tribal investigators find, access, organize, and share information useful for causal evaluations in aquatic systems. CADDIS is based on EPA’s Stressor Identification process, which is a formal method for identifying causes of impairments in aquatic environments. Features of CADDIS include a step-by-step guide to conducting causal assessments; a summary of relevant causal assessment history and concepts; summary information for common sources and stressors; applied examples of causal assessment methods; information on basic and advanced data analyses; downloadable software tools; and an online application for collaborating on SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 conceptual diagrams and using them to update and access a database of supporting literature.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 5, 2007, we published a notice in the Federal Register 
(72 FR 62449) inviting applications for new awards under the GEAR UP 
Program.
    In response to this notice, we received a significant number of 
high-quality applications for grants under the GEAR UP Program and made 
seven new State grant awards and 31 new Partnership grant awards. 
Additionally, after determining that the amount of FY 2009 funding 
available for new GEAR UP awards was too small to warrant a new 
competition, we published a notice in the Federal Register on May 8, 
2009 (74 FR 21671), of our intent to make FY 2009 GEAR UP program 
awards by funding down the FY 2008 funding slate. Accordingly, the 
Department awarded new FY 2009 GEAR UP program awards to the next 
highest scoring State proposal and the five next highest scoring 
partnership proposals.

[[Page 58374]]

However, many applications that were awarded high scores by peer 
reviewers still did not receive funding.
    We have recently learned that very limited funding is available for 
new awards under this program in FY 2010. Because any new awards must 
be made by September 30, 2010, we have decided to select grantees in FY 
2010 from the existing slate of applicants from the FY 2008 
competition. This slate was developed during the FY 2008 competition 
using the selection criteria, application requirements, and definitions 
referenced in the 2007 Federal Register notice.

    Note: To be eligible to receive a grant pursuant to this notice, 
all applicants being considered for funding based on the funding 
slate for the FY 2008 competition must meet all statutory and 
regulatory eligibility criteria and other requirements for this 
program.
