First Responder Network Authority Board Meeting, 56622-56623 [2012-22605]

Download as PDF 56622 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 178 / Thursday, September 13, 2012 / Notices Endangered Species Act mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Of the species of marine mammals that may occur in the proposed survey area, several are listed as endangered under the ESA, including the blue, fin, humpback, sei, and sperm whale and Hawaiian monk seal. The Observatory did not request take of endangered humpback, sei, blue, or fin whales or Hawaiian monk seals because of the low likelihood of encountering these species during the cruise. As mentioned previously, the survey would not occur in any areas designated as critical habitat for listed species and would not adversely impact marine mammal habitat. Under section 7 of this Act, the Foundation initiated formal consultation with the National Marine Fisheries Service, Office of Protected Resources, Endangered Species Act Interagency Cooperation Division, on this seismic survey. We, (the Permits and Conservation Division), also initiated formal consultation under section 7 of the Act with the Endangered Species Act Interagency Cooperation Division, to obtain a Biological Opinion (Opinion) evaluating the effects of issuing an incidental harassment authorization for threatened and endangered marine mammals and, if appropriate, authorizing incidental take. In May 2012, the Endangered Species Act Interagency Cooperation Division issued an Opinion and concluded that the action and issuance of the Authorization was not likely to jeopardize the continued existence of blue, fin, humpback, sei, and sperm whales and Hawaiian monk seals. The Opinion also concluded that the survey would not affect designated critical habitat for these species. The Foundation and the Observatory must comply with the Relevant Terms and Conditions of the Incidental Take Statement corresponding to the Opinion issued to us, the Foundation, and the Observatory. The Observatory must also comply with the Authorization’s mitigation and monitoring requirements in order to be exempt under the Incidental Take Statement in the Opinion from the prohibition on take of listed endangered marine mammal species otherwise prohibited by section 9 of the Act. National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) With its complete application, the Foundation and the Observatory provided an ‘‘Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact Determination Pursuant to the National Environmental VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:13 Sep 12, 2012 Jkt 226001 Policy Act, (NEPA: 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) and Executive Order 12114 for a ‘‘Marine Geophysical Survey by the R/V Marcus G. Langseth in the Central Pacific Ocean May, 2012,’’ which incorporates an ‘‘Environmental Assessment of a Marine Geophysical Survey by the R/V Marcus G. Langseth in the central Pacific Ocean, May, 2012,’’ prepared by LGL Limited environmental research associates on behalf of the Foundation and the Observatory. The Assessment analyzed the direct, indirect, and cumulative environmental impacts of the specified activities on marine mammals including those listed as threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act. We conducted an independent review and evaluation of the document for sufficiency and compliance with the Council of Environmental Quality and NOAA Administrative Order 216–6 § 5.09(d), Environmental Review Procedures for Implementing the National Environmental Policy Act, and determined that issuance of the Authorization is not likely to result in significant impacts on the human environment. Also, we have provided relevant environmental information to the public through the notice of the proposed Authorization (77 FR 19242, March 30, 2012) and have considered public comments received in response prior to adopting the Foundation’s Assessment. We have concluded that issuance of an Authorization would not significantly affect the quality of the human environment and have issued a separate Finding of No Significant Impact. Because we have made this finding, it is not necessary to prepare an environmental impact statement for the issuance of an Authorization to the Observatory for this activity. Authorization As a result of these determinations, we have issued an Incidental Harassment Authorization to the Observatory for the take of small numbers of marine mammals, by Level B harassment incidental to conducting a marine geophysical survey in the central Pacific Ocean, May 1 through June 11, 2012, provided the Observatory implements the previously mentioned mitigation, monitoring, and reporting requirements. The Authorization’s duration will not exceed one year from the date of issuance. PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Dated: April 30, 2012. Helen M. Golde, Acting Director, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service.
