ACTION: Notice of Availability. AGENCY: In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, and the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, as amended, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has prepared a Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the One Nevada Transmission Line (ON Line Project) and by this notice is announcing its availability. DATES: The BLM will not issue a final decision on the proposal for at least 30 days after the date that the Environmental Protection Agency publishes its notice of availability in the Federal Register.

The project name is the One Nevada Transmission Line Project and is referred to as the ‘‘ON Line Project.’’ The components of the ON Line Project had been part of the 2006 Ely Energy Center (EEC) proposal for a coal fired power-generating facility that included rail lines, transmission lines with fiber optic cable, new and expanded substations, water well-fields and pipeline delivery systems, and associated facilities to be located mostly on public lands in White Pine, Lincoln, Nye, Elko, and Clark counties, Nevada. On January 26, 2007, the BLM published a Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS for the EEC and its associated facilities and held public scoping meetings (see 72 FR 3871). On January 2, 2009, the BLM published a Notice of Availability initiating a 90-day public comment period on its Draft EIS (see 74 FR 115). In February 2009, during the public comment period, the proponent made public its intention to postpone the coal-fired power generation facilities associated with the EEC in its proposal until carbon capture technology becomes commercially feasible. On July 29, 2009, the BLM published in the Federal Register a Notice of Intent to develop an EIS for the ON Line project and invited the public to submit SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 scoping comments (see 74 FR 37728). An Draft EIS was developed for the following reasons: the ON Line proposed action was part of the EEC proposed action assessed in the EEC Draft EIS; removing the coal-fired power generation facilities from the application requires a change in the description of the purpose and need for the project; and the assessment of impacts in association with the power generation facilities in the Draft EIS are no longer applicable. The ON Line Draft EIS incorporated all appurtenant sections of the EEC Draft EIS along with new information such that it stands on its own. Applicable comments collected during the public comment period on the EEC Draft EIS were carried forward into the ON Line EIS process. On November 20, 2009, the BLM published in the Federal Register a Notice of Availability for the Draft EIS for the ON Line project and initiated a 60-day public comment period (see 74 FR 60290). Public meetings on the Draft EIS were conducted in Las Vegas, Caliente, and Ely during December 2009. Nineteen comments were received and taken into consideration in the preparation of the Final EIS. Public comments identified potential conflicts with the Robinson Summit substation and resulted in an additional alternative site for the substation being added to the Final EIS. The comments also identified the need to clarify several sections of the document. Authority: 40 CFR 1506.6 and 1506.10. Atanda Clark, Acting Associate District Manager, Ely District.
