Notice of Intent to Prepare a Resource Management Plan for the Battle Mountain District and Associated Environmental Impact Statement, Nevada, 77652-77654 [2010-31207]

Download as PDF 77652 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 238 / Monday, December 13, 2010 / Notices Authority I. Abstract We provide this notice under Section 10 of the Act and NEPA regulations (40 CFR 1506.6). USGS supports some of the most pressing resource management, environmental and climate change science issues faced by our Nation. Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) is the leading technology for collecting highly accurate three-dimensional measurements of the Earth’s topography and surface features such as buildings, bridges, coastlines, rivers, forests and other landscape characteristics. These data provide an unprecedented tool for scientific understanding and inform National decisions related to ecosystem management, energy development, natural resource conservation and mitigating geologic and flood-related hazards. The USGS now collects LiDAR data to a limited extent and primarily for upgrading bare-earth elevation data for The National Map. This study seeks to establish a baseline of national business needs and associated benefits for LiDAR to enhance the responsiveness of USGS programs, and to design an efficient future program that balances requirements, benefits and costs. The study advances coordinated program development among the numerous Federal and State agencies that increasingly rely on LiDAR to enable the fulfillment of their missions. The study is sponsored by the National Digital Elevation Program steering committee and supported by several member agencies. The information collection process will be guided by an interagency management team led by USGS with support from a professional services contractor. The information collection will be conducted using a standardized template. Responses are one-time and voluntary. Dated: December 3, 2010. David L. Hankla, Field Supervisor, Jacksonville Field Office.

The planning area is located in portions of Lander, Eureka, Nye, and Esmeralda counties, Nevada and encompasses approximately 10.5 million acres of public land. The purpose of the public scoping process is to determine relevant issues that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis, including alternatives, and guide the planning process. Preliminary issues for the planning area have been identified by the BLM, Federal, State, and local agencies, and other stakeholders. The issues include: managing vegetative and water resources, including identifying terrestrial and aquatic wildlife and fish priority habitats; managing noxious and invasive species; managing renewable energy development for geothermal, wwoods2 on DSK1DXX6B1PROD with NOTICES_PART 1 DATES: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:42 Dec 10, 2010 Jkt 223001 wind, and solar power, including stipulations to protect sensitive resources; identifying and evaluating areas of critical environmental concern; identifying lands with wilderness characteristics with an updated inventory; determining eligibility for wild and scenic rivers; managing National Historic Trails; identifying offhighway vehicle designations and travel management; identifying special recreation management areas to meet increasing recreation demands; managing and protecting visual resources, cultural, historical, and paleontological resources, as well as Native American religious and traditional values; and making land tenure adjustments to meet community growth needs and sustainable development. Preliminary planning criteria include: (1) The planning area is defined as the area covered by the existing ShoshoneEureka and Tonopah RMPs. The plan will make resource use determinations for public lands within the defined planning area boundary. (2) The planning effort will rely on available inventories of the lands and resources as well as data gathered during the planning process. (3) The planning will address requirements for sage-grouse habitat and conservation as outlined in the National Sage-Grouse Habitat Conservation Strategy, and the most current BLM guidance and instruction memoranda will be followed. (4) The planning process will use Geographic Information Systems and corporate geospatial data to the extent practicable and Federal Geographic Data Committee standards and other applicable BLM data standards will be followed. (5) The plan and associated EIS will be developed through the BLM’s ePlanning system to the extent consistent with the current functionality of the system and schedule considerations.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Ocotillo Express, LLC has submitted an application for a right-of-way authorization to construct, operate, maintain, and decommission, an approximate 15,000-acre, 550 megawatt (MW) wind energy project including a substation, administration, operations and maintenance facilities, transmission, and temporary construction lay down areas. The proposed wind energy project would be located on BLM administered lands and a small portion on lands under the jurisdiction of Imperial County, approximately 5 miles west of the town of Ocotillo, Imperial County, California. The proposed action consists of the construction, operation, maintenance, and decommissioning of wind turbine generators and associated facilities necessary to successfully generate up to 550 MW of electricity. The project would be constructed in 2 phases: Phase I is anticipated to total approximately 299 MW, and Phase II is about 251 MW. A recently approved high-voltage transmission line known as the Sunrise Powerlink crosses the Ocotillo Wind Energy Project site and will facilitate interconnection of the proposed project and transmission of its renewable energy output to Southern California. The BLM will be the lead agency for NEPA compliance and Imperial County will act as the lead agency under CEQA for the project. The BLM has invited the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) to be a cooperating Federal agency in the preparation of the EIR/EIS because the proposed project may require a section 404 permit under the Clean Water Act. The BLM and Corps agree that establishing a cooperating agency relationship will create a more streamlined and coordinated approach in developing the Ocotillo EIR/EIS and they will be developing a Memorandum of Understanding for this purpose. PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The purpose of the public scoping process is to determine relevant issues that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis, including alternatives, and will guide the process of developing the EIR/EIS. At present, the BLM has identified the following preliminary issues: air quality, biological resources, recreation, cultural resources, water resources, geological resources, land use, noise, paleontological resources, land with wilderness characteristics, public health, socioeconomics, soils, traffic and transportation, visual resources, and other issues. Authorization of this proposal would require an amendment of the CDCA Plan. By this notice, the BLM is complying with requirements in 43 CFR 1610.2(c) to notify the public of potential amendments to land use plans. The BLM will integrate the land use planning process with the NEPA process for this project. The BLM will use and coordinate the NEPA commenting process to satisfy the public involvement process for Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (16 U.S.C. 470(f)) as provided for in 36 CFR 800.2(d)(3). Native American Tribal consultations will be conducted in accordance with policy, and Tribal concerns, including impacts on Indian trust assets, will be given due consideration. Federal, State, and local agencies, along with other stakeholders that may be interested or affected by the BLM’s decision on this project, are invited to participate in the scoping process and, if eligible, may request or be requested by the BLM to participate as a cooperating agency.
