Our EAS found that the proposed plan qualifies as a ‘‘low-effect’’ habitat conservation plan, as defined by our Habitat Conservation Planning Handbook (November 1996). Determination of low-effect habitat conservation plans is based on the following three criteria: (1) Implementation of the proposed plan would result in minor or negligible effects on Federally listed, proposed, and candidate species and their habitats; (2) implementation of the proposed plan would result in minor or negligible effects on other environmental values or resources; and (3) impacts of the plan, considered together with the impacts of other past, present, and reasonably foreseeable similarly situated projects, would not result, over time, in cumulative effects to environmental values or resources that would be considered significant. Based upon the preliminary determinations in the EAS, we do not intend to prepare further NEPA documentation. We will consider public comments when making the final determination on whether to prepare an additional NEPA document on the proposed action. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Public Review We provide this notice pursuant to section 10(c) of the Act and the NEPA public-involvement regulations (40 CFR 1500.1(b), 1500.2(d), and 1506.6). We will evaluate the permit application, including the plan and comments we receive, to determine whether the application meets the requirements of section 10(a) of the Act. If the requirements are met, we will issue a permit to the applicant for the incidental take of the Central Distinct Population Segment (DPS) of the California tiger salamander from the implementation of the Covered Activities described in the Low-effect Habitat Conservation Plan, for the California tiger salamander, for the AT&T Portable Generator Storage Facility, Yolo County, California. We will make the final permit decision no sooner than 30 days after the date of this notice. Dated: July 15, 2011. Susan K.
