FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Superintendent Constantine Dillon, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, at the address above, or by telephone at (219) 926–7561, extension 225. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Park Service (NPS) has prepared a draft SRMP for Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. The SRMP prescribes the resource conditions and restoration activities intended to maintain the shoreline over the next 15 to 20 years. The project area consists of four reaches of shoreline, Reaches 1 through 4, in an east-to-west direction. The park shoreline is not contiguous because of industrial and navigational structures, state park land, and other non-federal property. The SRMP presents a range of reasonable management alternatives. Alternative A, the No-Action alternative, describes a continuation of current management practices, and is included as the baseline for comparing consequences of each alternative. Alternatives B, C, and D represent variations on beach nourishment activities. Alternatives B–1 and B–5 discuss beach nourishment using material from an upland source in 1and 5-year frequencies. Beach nourishment using dredged materials in 1- and 5-year frequencies is described in Alternatives C–1 and C–5, and Alternative D outlines nourishment activities by way of a permanent sediment bypass system. Finally, the use of submerged beach-stabilizing structures is discussed in Alternative E. The alternatives presented in this plan focus on balancing the quantities of sediment flowing through the shoreline reaches. Over the course of developing the SRMP, the alternatives were finetuned to accomplish this task and also address the protection of the shoreline from critical eroding areas, providing habitat opportunities, allowing for natural processes to continue, and rehabilitating the shoreline in a costeffective manner. For Reaches 1 and 2, the SRMP considered all alternatives and Alternative E has been selected as the Preferred Alternative. The NPS believes that this alternative provides the best VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:13 Sep 12, 2012 Jkt 226001 combination of strategies to protect the park’s unique resources and visitor experience, while improving the park’s operational sustainability. Implementation of the Preferred Alternative in Reaches 1 and 2 would offer a high level of protection of natural resources along the shoreline while providing for a wide range of beneficial uses of the environment. For Reaches 3 and 4, only dredged sources and the sediment bypass system were viable alternatives (no submerged beach-stabilizing structures in these reaches), and Alternative C–5 has been selected as the Preferred Alternative because the NPS believes that it provides for the most cost efficient and greatest potential for both foredune creation and providing protection from major storm events. The SRMP describes the potential environmental consequences of the alternatives on coastal processes, including sediment transport and dune formation, aquatic fauna, terrestrial habitat, threatened and endangered plant and animal species, wetlands and pannes, soundscape, visitor experience, and park operations. The SRMP also presents a discussion on terrestrial management practices as they relate to the visitor experience. As the park is a popular destination for millions of people, the impacts of human activities on the natural resources of the park are ever-present and additive. We welcome comments on the SRMP.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Park Service (NPS) has prepared 
a draft SRMP for Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. The SRMP prescribes 
the resource conditions and restoration activities intended to maintain 
the shoreline over the next 15 to 20 years. The project area consists 
of four reaches of shoreline, Reaches 1 through 4, in an east-to-west 
direction. The park shoreline is not contiguous because of industrial 
and navigational structures, state park land, and other non-federal 
property.
    The SRMP presents a range of reasonable management alternatives. 
Alternative A, the No-Action alternative, describes a continuation of 
current management practices, and is included as the baseline for 
comparing consequences of each alternative. Alternatives B, C, and D 
represent variations on beach nourishment activities. Alternatives B-1 
and B-5 discuss beach nourishment using material from an upland source 
in 1- and 5-year frequencies. Beach nourishment using dredged materials 
in 1- and 5-year frequencies is described in Alternatives C-1 and C-5, 
and Alternative D outlines nourishment activities by way of a permanent 
sediment bypass system. Finally, the use of submerged beach-stabilizing 
structures is discussed in Alternative E.
    The alternatives presented in this plan focus on balancing the 
quantities of sediment flowing through the shoreline reaches. Over the 
course of developing the SRMP, the alternatives were fine-tuned to 
accomplish this task and also address the protection of the shoreline 
from critical eroding areas, providing habitat opportunities, allowing 
for natural processes to continue, and rehabilitating the shoreline in 
a cost-effective manner.
    For Reaches 1 and 2, the SRMP considered all alternatives and 
Alternative E has been selected as the Preferred Alternative. The NPS 
believes that this alternative provides the best combination of 
strategies to protect the park's unique resources and visitor 
experience, while improving the park's operational sustainability. 
Implementation of the Preferred Alternative in Reaches 1 and 2 would 
offer a high level of protection of natural resources along the 
shoreline while providing for a wide range of beneficial uses of the 
environment.
    For Reaches 3 and 4, only dredged sources and the sediment bypass 
system were viable alternatives (no submerged beach-stabilizing 
structures in these reaches), and Alternative C-5 has been selected as 
the Preferred Alternative because the NPS believes that it provides for 
the most cost efficient and greatest potential for both foredune 
creation and providing protection from major storm events.
    The SRMP describes the potential environmental consequences of the 
alternatives on coastal processes, including sediment transport and 
dune formation, aquatic fauna, terrestrial habitat, threatened and 
endangered plant and animal species, wetlands and pannes, soundscape, 
visitor experience, and park operations.
    The SRMP also presents a discussion on terrestrial management 
practices as they relate to the visitor experience. As the park is a 
popular destination for millions of people, the impacts of human 
activities on the natural resources of the park are ever-present and 
additive.
