SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Abstract This is a request for a new information collection. In 2009, Atlantic salmon populations from the Androscoggin River in South Central Maine to the Dennys River in Eastern Maine were listed as Endangered under the Federal Endangered Species Act (ESA) (74 FR 29344, June 19, 2009). Dams were identified in the listing as a significant threat to the species survival and recovery. In order for recovery to occur, Atlantic salmon must have access to sufficient adult spawning habitat and juvenile rearing habitat to support the continued existence of a recovered salmon population. In furtherance of recovery, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) proposes to conduct a survey of dam owners. This survey will allow NMFS to identify owners of non-Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) regulated dams and present to them opportunities to participate in programs that will aid them in complying with E:\FR\FM\26NON1.SGM 26NON1 72788 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 227 / Friday, November 26, 2010 / Notices the ESA. Owners of non-FERC dams often do not have regulatory oversight by a Federal agency and therefore, may not be aware of the requirements of the ESA and what this means to them. This survey will identify opportunities for fish passage improvements or dam removal that may fit into existing funding programs directed towards improving fish passage for diadromous fish species. Information from this survey will also be collected to educate NOAA on the current use, anticipated use, and community interest in small dams. This type of information will aid NMFS in developing tools to communicate and work effectively with dam owners within the GOM DPS. Information will be collected on current uses of dams, anticipated uses of dams, important issues or concerns to dam owners, and owners’ interest in creating fish passage or removing dams. Known associations or organizations with an interest in the dams will also be identified. Respondents will represent members of state and local agencies, private individuals and corporations, and commercial businesses. Results will be used to assist NMFS in identifying dam owners who are interested in discussing potential enhancements to Atlantic salmon habitats. srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES II.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On August 17, 2009, the Department published its Final Results. In response to Bon Ten’s arguments in its administrative case brief, the Department determined not to rescind the AR with respect to Bon Ten because Bon Ten had not demonstrated that it had no shipments during the 2007 AR POR outside of the single shipment reviewed during a new shipper review (‘‘NSR’’) 3 that overlapped, in part, with the 2007 AR POR.4 Additionally, because Bon Ten had not demonstrated its eligibility for a separate rate in the 2007 AR, the Department maintained its determination to treat Bon Ten as part of the PRC-wide entity.5 On August 14, 2009, Bon Ten submitted comments alleging that the Department made a ministerial error with respect to the Final Results. Bon Ten’s ministerial error allegation focused on the Department’s finding in the Final Results that Bon Ten had not provided any assertion prior to the submission of its case brief that it had no shipments during the 2007 AR POR outside of the shipment reviewed in the context of the NSR. Bon Ten argued that the Department did not consider its February 5, 2009, submission concerning its shipments during the 2007 AR POR in that finding. In the Amended Final Results, the Department determined that, although it had inadvertently overlooked Bon Ten’s February 5, 2009, submission for purposes of the Final Results, Bon Ten’s allegation did not reflect a ministerial error.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This is a request for a new information collection.
    In 2009, Atlantic salmon populations from the Androscoggin River in 
South Central Maine to the Dennys River in Eastern Maine were listed as 
Endangered under the Federal Endangered Species Act (ESA) (74 FR 29344, 
June 19, 2009). Dams were identified in the listing as a significant 
threat to the species survival and recovery. In order for recovery to 
occur, Atlantic salmon must have access to sufficient adult spawning 
habitat and juvenile rearing habitat to support the continued existence 
of a recovered salmon population. In furtherance of recovery, the 
National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) proposes to conduct a survey 
of dam owners.
    This survey will allow NMFS to identify owners of non-Federal 
Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) regulated dams and present to them 
opportunities to participate in programs that will aid them in 
complying with

[[Page 72788]]

the ESA. Owners of non-FERC dams often do not have regulatory oversight 
by a Federal agency and therefore, may not be aware of the requirements 
of the ESA and what this means to them. This survey will identify 
opportunities for fish passage improvements or dam removal that may fit 
into existing funding programs directed towards improving fish passage 
for diadromous fish species. Information from this survey will also be 
collected to educate NOAA on the current use, anticipated use, and 
community interest in small dams. This type of information will aid 
NMFS in developing tools to communicate and work effectively with dam 
owners within the GOM DPS. Information will be collected on current 
uses of dams, anticipated uses of dams, important issues or concerns to 
dam owners, and owners' interest in creating fish passage or removing 
dams. Known associations or organizations with an interest in the dams 
will also be identified.
    Respondents will represent members of state and local agencies, 
private individuals and corporations, and commercial businesses. 
Results will be used to assist NMFS in identifying dam owners who are 
interested in discussing potential enhancements to Atlantic salmon 
habitats.

II. Method of Collection

    The geographic spread of potential respondents is extensive and 
includes residents of Maine as well as nonresidents. Most respondents 
will be contacted via an initial letter and a follow-up telephone call. 
Personal interviews will be scheduled with a few respondents owning 
multiple (in excess of 5) dams and the information collected will be 
recorded electronically.
