Download as PDF wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with NOTICES_PART 1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 216 / Tuesday, November 9, 2010 / Notices electrical substation, an overhead transmission line to connect the substation to the Maui Electric Company Ltd. transmission line, a permanent unguyed meteorological monitoring tower, and short service roads to connect the new WTGs and other facilities to the existing main access road servicing KWP I. The overall project is located within a combined footprint area of approximately 143 acres (58 hectares). The Applicant has also applied for a State of Hawai‘i incidental take license under Hawai‘i State law. The draft HCP describes the impacts of take associated with those activities on the Covered Species, and proposes a program to minimize and mitigate take on each of the Covered Species. KWP II is proposing mitigation measures that include: (1) Active management such as predator removal and construction of cat- and mongooseproof fences at Hawaiian petrel and Newell’s shearwater colonies; (2) ¯ ¯ captive propagation and release of nene goslings; (3) habitat management and ¯ ¯ predator control to increase nene breeding success and survival; (4) surveys to document the distribution and abundance of the Hawaiian hoary bat; and (5) habitat management and reforestation to benefit the recovery of the Hawaiian hoary bat. This HCP incorporates adaptive management provisions to allow for modifications to the mitigation and monitoring measures as knowledge is gained during implementation. We invite comments and suggestions from all interested parties and request that comments be as specific as possible. In particular, we request information and comments regarding the following issues: (1) The direct, indirect, and cumulative effects that implementation of any reasonable alternatives could have on endangered and threatened species; (2) Other reasonable alternatives consistent with the purpose of the proposed HCP as described above, and their associated effects; (3) Measures that would minimize and mitigate potentially adverse effects of the proposed action; (4) Adaptive management or monitoring provisions that may be incorporated into the alternatives, and their benefits to listed species; (5) Other plans or projects that might be relevant to this action; (6) The proposed term of the Incidental Take Permit and whether the proposed conservation program would minimize and mitigate to the maximum extent practible the incidental take that VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:18 Nov 08, 2010 Jkt 223001 would be expected to occur over 20 years; and (7) Whether the HCP meets other ESA sec. 10(a)(2)(B) (16 U.S.C. (a)(2)(B), issuance criteria; and (8) Any other information pertinent to evaluating the effects of the proposed action on the human environment. The draft EA considers the direct, indirect, and cumulative effects of the proposed action of permit issuance, including the measures that will be implemented to minimize and mitigate such impacts. The EA contains an analysis of three alternatives: (1) Issuance of an incidental take permit to KWP II on the basis of the proposed HCP with the downroad siting location; (2) the issuance of a permit based on the downwind/downstring siting location; and (3) No Action (no permit issuance and no measures by the Applicant to reduce or eliminate the take of Covered Species). This notice is provided under section 10(c) (16 U.S.C. 1539(c)) of the ESA and NEPA regulations (40 CFR 1506.6). The public process for the proposed Federal action will be completed after the public comment period, at which time we will evaluate the permit application, the HCP and associated documents (including the EA), and comments submitted thereon to determine whether or not the proposed action meets the requirements of section 10(a) (16 U.S.C. 1539(a)) of the ESA and has been adequately evaluated under NEPA.
