Notice of Availability of the Record of Decision on the Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for the Mechanical and Artificial Creation and Maintenance of Emergent Sandbar Habitat in the Riverine Segments of the Upper Missouri River, Missouri River Basin, United States
The District Commander of the Omaha District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) has reviewed the ``Final Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS) for the Mechanical and Artificial Creation and Maintenance of Emergent Sandbar Habitat (ESH) on the Riverine Segments of the Upper Missouri River'' and has made the decision to proceed with the implementation of an Adaptive Management Implementation Process (AMIP) (preferred alternative) with a construction ceiling of acres associated with Alternative 3.5.

The maximum potential acres of ESH to be created is approximately 4,370 acres total, with the following estimated maximum acres by reach: Fort Peck River, 565. Garrison River, 1,327. Fort Randall River, 212. Lewis & Clark Lake, 354. Gavins Point River, 1,913. The AMIP alternative best supports the needs of the birds while providing flexibility in program implementation that will help minimize environmental impacts as well as costs.

Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report for the Section 408 Permission for the Southport Sacramento River Early Implementation Project, West Sacramento, CA
Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) intends to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) under Section 14 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 (as amended) (33 U.S.C. 408), and Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1344), for the proposed Southport Sacramento River Early Implementation Project (EIP), sponsored by the West Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency (WSAFCA). Figures of the project area can be viewed at http:// www.cityofwestsacramento.org/city/flood. WSAFCA is planning the Southport Sacramento River EIP to implement flood-risk reduction measures along the Sacramento River South Levee in the City of West Sacramento, Yolo County, CA. The project reach extends along the right bank of the Sacramento River south of the barge canal, downstream approximately 6.4 miles to the South Cross Levee, protecting the Southport community of West Sacramento. The 3.3-square mile study area encompasses the area of levee improvement along the river corridor and the potential soil borrow sites. In order to implement the project, the sponsor must acquire permission from USACE to alter the Federal project under Section 14 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 (as amended) (33 U.S.C. 408 or, Section 408). USACE also has authority under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1344) over activities involving the discharge of dredged or fill material to waters of the United States, which are known to be in the project area. The project would bring the levee up to standard with Federal and state flood protection criteria, as well as providing opportunities for ecosystem restoration and public recreation. USACE, acting as the federal lead agency under NEPA, and WSAFCA, acting as the state lead agency under the CEQA in coordination with the Central Valley Flood Protection Board, have determined that an EIS/EIR should be prepared to describe alternatives, potential environmental effects, and mitigation measures.

Privacy Act System of Records
Pursuant to subsection (e)(4) of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (``Privacy Act''), 5 U.S.C. 552a, the FCC proposes to add one new, consolidated system of records, FCC/OIG-3, ``Investigative Files.'' FCC/OIG-3, ``Investigative Files'' will incorporate the information, e.g., personally identifiable information (PII), presently covered by two OIG systems of records, FCC/OIG-1, ``Criminal Investigative Files,'' and FCC/OIG-2, ``General Investigative Files,'' and also add new and updated information that pertains to the mission and activities of the FCC's Office of Inspector General (OIG). Upon both the approval and deployment of FCC/OIG-3, the Commission will cancel FCC/OIG-1 and FCC/OIG-2. The purposes for adding this new system of records, FCC/OIG-3, ``Investigative Files,'' are for the OIG to use the records in this system of records to pursuant to the Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended, for the purposes of: Conducting and documenting investigations initiated and/or referred by or to OIG or other investigative agencies regarding FCC programs and operations and reporting the results of investigations to other Federal agencies, other public authorities or professional organizations that have the authority to bring criminal prosecutions or civil or administrative actions, or to impose other disciplinary sanctions; Documenting the outcome of OIG investigations; Maintaining a record of the activities that were the subject of investigations; Reporting investigative findings to the Commission management about problems and deficiencies in the FCC's programs and operations or to suggest corrective action in reference to identified irregularities, problems or deficiencies; Maintaining a record of complaints and allegations received relative to FCC programs and operations and documenting the outcome of OIG reviews of those complaints and allegations; Coordinating relationships with other Federal agencies, State and local governmental agencies, and nongovernmental entities in matters relating to the statutory responsibilities of the OIG; and Acting as a repository and source for information necessary to fulfill the reporting requirements of the Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended. The new system of records will consolidate the systems of records that the OIG currently uses to house all of its criminal and general investigative files with PII data in the various OIG information systems in a single OIG investigative files system of records.
