Download as PDF pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 1718 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 7 / Wednesday, January 11, 2012 / Notices Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (40 CFR 300.600 and 300.610) and Executive Order 12580. The Memorandum of Understanding Between the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and U.S. Department of the Interior establishes a Trustee Council charged with developing and implementing a restoration plan for ecological restoration in the Springfield Plateau of southwest Missouri. The Trustees followed the NRDAR regulations found at 43 CFR part 11 for the development of the Plan. The draft Springfield Plateau Regional Restoration Plan and Environmental Assessment will be finalized prior to implementation, after all public comments received during the public comment period are considered. Any significant additions or modifications to the Plan as restoration actions proceed will be made available for public review before any additions or modification are undertaken. The objective of the NRDAR process in the Springfield Plateau is to compensate the public, through environmental restoration, for losses to natural resources that have been injured by releases of hazardous substances into the environment. The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA, more commonly known as the Federal ‘‘Superfund’’ law; 42 U.S.C. 9601, et seq.), and the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (commonly known as the Clean Water Act (CWA); 33 U.S.C. 1251 et seq.) authorize States, federally recognized tribes, and certain Federal agencies that have authority for natural resources ‘‘belonging to, managed by, controlled by or appertaining to the United States’’ to act as ‘‘trustees’’ on behalf of the public, to restore, rehabilitate, replace, and/or acquire natural resources equivalent to those injured by releases of hazardous substances. The Trustees worked together, in a cooperative process, to identify appropriate restoration activities to address natural resource injuries caused by releases of hazardous substances into the Springfield Plateau environment. The results of this administrative process are contained in the planning and decision document being published for public review under CERCLA. Natural resource damages received, either through negotiated settlements or adjudicated awards, must be used to restore, rehabilitate, replace, and/or acquire the equivalent of those injured natural resources. The Plan addresses the Trustees’ overall approach to restore, rehabilitate, replace, and/or acquire the equivalent of natural VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:02 Jan 10, 2012 Jkt 226001 resources injured by the release of hazardous substances into the Springfield Plateau environment.
