ACTION: Notice of availability. AGENCY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announces the availability of the Record of Decision (ROD) for a right-of-way (ROW) lease/ grant to Calico Solar Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) for the Calico Solar Project (formerly SES Solar One) and an associated Amendment to the California Desert Conservation Area Resource Management Plan (CDCA Plan). The Calico Solar Project is located in San Bernardino County, California. The Secretary of the Interior signed the ROD on October 20, 2010, which constitutes the final decision of the Department. The ROD and the Approved Plan Amendment are effective immediately. DATES: These decisions are effective immediately upon publication of this notice. ADDRESSES: Copies of the ROD are available upon request from the Field Manager, Barstow Field Office, Bureau of Land Management, 2601 Barstow Road, Barstow, California 92311 or at the following Web site: http:// www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/prog/energy/ fasttrack/calico/fedstatus.html or http:// www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/barstow/ emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:09 Oct 25, 2010 Jkt 223001 solar_one_calico.html.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jim Stobaugh, National Project Manager, by telephone: 775–861–6478; mail: BLM Nevada State Office, P.O. Box 12000, Reno, Nevada 89520–0006; or e-mail: Jim_Stobaugh@blm.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: After extensive environmental analysis; consultation and collaboration with Federal, state, and local agencies; consideration of public comments; and application of relevant Federal laws and policies, the BLM has decided to offer Calico Solar LLC a ROW lease/grant for the construction, operation, maintenance, and decommissioning of the 663.5 megawatt (MW), 4,604-acre Calico Solar Project, including related project facilities and access roads across public lands administered by the BLM. In association with this ROW lease/ grant, the BLM is also amending the CDCA Plan to allow for the siting of a solar energy power plant on the proposed project site. The ROW lease/ grant authorizes the use of public lands for the project for a term of 30 years, and the lease/grant is renewable. A temporary use permit authorizes the use of public lands for construction of temporary access roads and construction space for a term of 3 years and is also subject to renewal. The amendment of the CDCA Plan will allow for the siting of the Calico Solar Project and related facilities, including 26,450 SunCatcher solar dishes, a 230kilovolt (kV) Calico Substation and 2mile, 230-kv transmission line, and other project facilities through incorporation of the Calico Solar Project into the Energy Production and Utility Corridors Element of the CDCA Plan. The BLM’s decision authorizes issuance of a ROW lease/grant to Calico Solar LLC for the Modified Agency Preferred Alternative. The Agency Preferred Alternative is within the scope of alternatives that were analyzed in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) issued in August 2010. Modifications to the Agency Preferred Alternative have been made since publication of the Final EIS as the result of additional agency consultation and in response to public comments. The Environmental Protection Agency published a Notice of Availability (NOA) of the Final EIS in the Federal Register on August 6, 2010 (75 FR 47620). Publication of the NOA for the Final EIS initiated a 30-day protest period for the proposed amendment to the CDCA Plan. At the close of the protest period on September 7, 2010, PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 five protests were received and resolved. Detailed information on the protests may be found on the BLM Washington Office Web site at: http:// www.blm.gov/wo/st/en/prog/planning/ protest_resolution.html. The proposed amendment to the CDCA Plan was not modified as a result of the protest resolution. Simultaneously with the protest period, the California Governor’s Office conducted a 30-day consistency review of the proposed CDCA Plan amendment/Final EIS to identify any inconsistencies with state or local plan, policies or programs. The California Governor’s office did not identify inconsistencies between the proposed amendment to the CDCA Plan/Final EIS. As a result of the above and additional consultation with jurisdictional regulatory agencies, the 6,215-acre, 850– MW Agency Preferred Alternative for the Calico Solar Project was modified to include: (1) A project footprint reduced from 6,215 acres to 4,604 acres; (2) generation capacity reduced from 850– MW (34,000 SunCatchers) to 663.5–MW (26,540 SunCatchers); and (3) construction of Phase 1 subdivided into phase 1a and 1b. The authorized ROW lease/grant includes all of the above modifications. Because this decision is approved by the Secretary of the Interior, it is not subject to administrative appeal (43 CFR 4.410(a)(3)). Authority: 40 CFR 1506.6. Robert V. Abbey, Director, Bureau of Land Management.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This temporary closure affects public lands within the Big Pole Fire area in Tooele County, Utah, and encompasses all public lands administered by the BLM Salt Lake Field Office east of State Route 196, south of Interstate 80, west of the crest of the Stansbury Mountain range, and north of the Skull Valley Goshute Indian Reservation in Tooele County, Utah. The legal description of the affected area is all public lands within Townships 1, 2, 3 and 4 South, Ranges 7 and 8 West, Salt Lake Meridian. The closure and stabilization actions were analyzed pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act, in the Big Pole Fire Motor Vehicle Closure environmental assessment (DOI–BLM– W010–2010–0005–EA) and FY2009 Emergency Stabilization and Rehabilitation determination of NEPA adequacy (DOI–BLM–UT–W000–2009– 0001–DNA), respectively. This closure is being implemented for the purposes of protecting soil, watershed, vegetation, and cultural resources which the BLM Salt Lake Field Office has determined are at immediate risk. The reasons for implementing this closure are based on a risk determination which, in turn, is based on field observations and stabilization planning conducted by the BLM staff specialists following the Big Pole Fire, which started on August 6, 2009, and was declared contained on August 16, 2009. This wildfire was VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:09 Oct 25, 2010 Jkt 223001 particularly intense due to winds in excess of 40 mph and heavy fuel loads of cheatgrass and juniper trees. The BLM monitoring revealed extensive resource damage caused by the burn patterns and the severity of a wildfire that burned over 44,000 acres in approximately 24 hours. Heavy soil scorching and a total loss of vegetative cover have resulted in a significantly greater risk for water runoff and soil erosion. Soil composition in the area is highly erodible. Subsequent motor vehicle traffic in burned areas has increased the risk of erosion and may have a negative impact on efforts to stabilize soils and establish new vegetation. Motor vehicle travel may also increase the spread of invasive species, such as cheatgrass, into areas damaged by wildfire. The BLM Salt Lake Field Office is implementing a comprehensive emergency stabilization and rehabilitation plan within the Big Pole fire area which includes seeding, planting, soil treatments, noxious weed control, fencing, signing, resource monitoring, and law enforcement. The following persons are exempt from this order: Federal, state, and local officers and employees in the performance of their official duties; members of organized rescue or fire-fighting forces in the performance of their official duties; and persons with written authorization from the Bureau of Land Management. The closure order has been posted at major entry points to the burn area. Copies of the closure order and maps of the closed area have been made available at the BLM West Desert District’s Salt Lake Field Office, 2370 South 2300 West, Salt Lake City, UT 84119. The closure was also published on the BLM Salt Lake Field Office Web site and distributed to local government and media outlets.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This temporary closure affects public lands 
within the Big Pole Fire area in Tooele County, Utah, and encompasses 
all public lands administered by the BLM Salt Lake Field Office east of 
State Route 196, south of Interstate 80, west of the crest of the 
Stansbury Mountain range, and north of the Skull Valley Goshute Indian 
Reservation in Tooele County, Utah. The legal description of the 
affected area is all public lands within Townships 1, 2, 3 and 4 South, 
Ranges 7 and 8 West, Salt Lake Meridian.
    The closure and stabilization actions were analyzed pursuant to the 
National Environmental Policy Act, in the Big Pole Fire Motor Vehicle 
Closure environmental assessment (DOI-BLM-W010-2010-0005-EA) and FY2009 
Emergency Stabilization and Rehabilitation determination of NEPA 
adequacy (DOI-BLM-UT-W000-2009-0001-DNA), respectively. This closure is 
being implemented for the purposes of protecting soil, watershed, 
vegetation, and cultural resources which the BLM Salt Lake Field Office 
has determined are at immediate risk. The reasons for implementing this 
closure are based on a risk determination which, in turn, is based on 
field observations and stabilization planning conducted by the BLM 
staff specialists following the Big Pole Fire, which started on August 
6, 2009, and was declared contained on August 16, 2009. This wildfire 
was particularly intense due to winds in excess of 40 mph and heavy 
fuel loads of cheatgrass and juniper trees. The BLM monitoring revealed 
extensive resource damage caused by the burn patterns and the severity 
of a wildfire that burned over 44,000 acres in approximately 24 hours. 
Heavy soil scorching and a total loss of vegetative cover have resulted 
in a significantly greater risk for water runoff and soil erosion. Soil 
composition in the area is highly erodible. Subsequent motor vehicle 
traffic in burned areas has increased the risk of erosion and may have 
a negative impact on efforts to stabilize soils and establish new 
vegetation. Motor vehicle travel may also increase the spread of 
invasive species, such as cheatgrass, into areas damaged by wildfire. 
The BLM Salt Lake Field Office is implementing a comprehensive 
emergency stabilization and rehabilitation plan within the Big Pole 
fire area which includes seeding, planting, soil treatments, noxious 
weed control, fencing, signing, resource monitoring, and law 
enforcement. The following persons are exempt from this order: Federal, 
state, and local officers and employees in the performance of their 
official duties; members of organized rescue or fire-fighting forces in 
the performance of their official duties; and persons with written 
authorization from the Bureau of Land Management.
    The closure order has been posted at major entry points to the burn 
area. Copies of the closure order and maps of the closed area have been 
made available at the BLM West Desert District's Salt Lake Field 
Office, 2370 South 2300 West, Salt Lake City, UT 84119. The closure was 
also published on the BLM Salt Lake Field Office Web site and 
distributed to local government and media outlets.
    Penalties: Under the authority of Section 303(a) of the Federal 
Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1733(a)), 43 CFR 
8341.2(a), 43 CFR 8364.1, and 43 CFR 9268.3(d), the Bureau of Land 
Management is enforcing the following rule(s) within the Big Pole Fire 
Area:
