Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 196 / Tuesday, October 11, 2011 / Notices articulate the reviewer’s concerns and contentions. Comments received in response to this solicitation, including names and addresses of those who comment, will be part of the public record for this proposed action and will be available for public inspection. Preliminary Issues The interdisciplinary team has conducted field surveys and data research to identify preliminary issues of concern with this proposal. The primary concern is the potential for sediment or heavy metal discharges into streams from mining operations, potentially impacting water quality, fish and fish habitat (pools and temperature). Within the Granite Creek Watershed, under section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has listed Beaver Creek and Clear Creek as water quality limited for temperature, and Bull Run Creek and Granite Creek as water quality limited for temperature and sediment. Fish species listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act occurring within the watershed include bull trout and middle Columbia River steelhead trout. Based on these preliminary issues and the level of activity proposed at some sites, there is the potential for significant impacts to some resources, therefore an EIS fits the scope of this analysis rather than an Environmental Assessment (EA). mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES of mining Plans within the Granite Creek Watershed Mining Plans analsyis area. The responsible official will also decide whether or not to select the proposed action as stated or modified, or to select an alternative to it, any mitigation measures needed, and any monitoring that may be required. Authority: 40 CFR 1501.7 and 1508.22; Forest Service Handbook 1909.15, Section 21. Comments submitted anonymously will be accepted and considered, however those who only submit anonymous comments will not have standing to appeal the subsequent decision under 36 CFR part 215. Scoping Process This notice of intent initiates the scoping process, which guides the development of the environmental impact statement. Public participation is especially important at several points during the development of the EIS. The Forest Service is seeking information, comments, and coordination with Federal, State, and local agencies, and tribal governments, individuals or organizations who may be interested in or affected by the proposed action. The most useful comments to developing or refining the proposed action would be site-specific concerns and those that pertain to authorizing mining activities within the Granite Creek Watershed Mining Plans analysis area that meets the Purpose of and Need for Action. It is important that reviewers provide their comments at such times and in such manner that they are useful to the agency’s preparation of the environmental impact statement. Therefore, comments should be provided prior to the close of the comment period and should clearly VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:47 Oct 07, 2011 Jkt 226001 Dated: October 2, 2011.

Years that end in 2 and 7 are considered ‘‘census years.’’ In non-census years, companies report only on basic company affiliation and operations of establishments not within the scope of the economic censuses. In these noncensus years, all multi-establishment companies with 250 or more employees report survey information. Also, groups of smaller companies that are divided into panels may be selected to report information for one of the non-census years. Smaller companies may be selected if an organizational change within the company is indicated, or if they have been selected through the probability sampling procedure.

Cotton Lane within the Palm Valley 303 Industrial Park in Goodyear, Arizona (Site 3). Under T/IM VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:47 Oct 07, 2011 Jkt 226001 procedures, Sub-Zero has requested authority to produce refrigerators (HTSUS 8418.10 and 8418.21, duty rate: free). Foreign components that would be used in production (representing 45% of the value of the finished refrigerators) include: ABS resin (HTSUS 3903.30), fittings (3917.40), rubber gaskets (4016.93), articles of rubber (4016.99), fasteners (7318.14, 7318.15, 7318.29), hinges (8302.10), brackets (8302.50), plates (8310.00), compressors (8414.30, 8414.90), parts of refrigerators (8418.99), filters (8421.21), filter/dryer (8421.29), valves (8481.80), motors (8501.10, 8501.40), inverters (8504.40), wiring harnesses (8516.80), switches (8536.50), plugs and sockets (8536.61), controllers (8537.10), lamps (8539.22), and conductors (8544.42) (duty rate range: free–8.6%).
