This includes the submerged lands and beds of all sloughs, braids, and channels that carry water from the navigable Kisaralik River and thus are part of the navigable river and all lands within the river system permanently or periodically covered by tidal waters up to the line of mean high tide.’’ The State identified the Kokarmiut Corporation, Calista Corporation, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as possible interested parties of the affected lands.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 30, 2010, the State of Alaska 
filed an application for a Recordable Disclaimer of Interest pursuant 
to Section 315 of the Federal Lands Policy and Management Act of 1976 
and the regulations contained in 43 CFR subpart 1864 for the lands 
underlying the Kisaralik River (AA-92408). A Recordable Disclaimer of 
Interest, if issued, will confirm that the United States has no valid 
interest in the subject lands. The notice is intended to notify the 
public of the pending application and the State's grounds for 
supporting it. The State asserts that this river system was navigable 
and unreserved at the time of statehood; therefore, under the Equal 
Footing Doctrine, the Submerged Lands Act of 1953, the Alaska Statehood 
Act, the Alaska Right of Way Act of 1898, and other title navigability 
law, ownership of these lands underlying the river automatically passed 
from the United States to the State at the time of statehood in 1959.
    The State's application, AA-92408, is for ``submerged lands and bed 
up to and including the ordinary high water line of Kisaralik Lake 
within Township 3 North, Range 58 West, Seward Meridian and for the 
submerged lands and bed of the Kisaralik River lying between the 
ordinary high water lines of the right and left banks of that river 
from the outlet of Kisaralik Lake within Township 3 North, Range 58 
West, Seward Meridian, Alaska, downstream to the location where the 
river enters the Kuskokuak Slough within Township 9 North, Range 67 
West, Seward Meridian, Alaska. This includes the submerged lands and 
beds of all sloughs, braids, and channels that carry water from the 
navigable Kisaralik River and thus are part of the navigable river and 
all lands within the river system permanently or periodically covered 
by tidal waters up to the line of mean high tide.'' The State 
identified the Kokarmiut Corporation, Calista Corporation, and the U.S. 
Fish and Wildlife Service as possible interested parties of the 
affected lands.
    A final decision on the merits of the application will not be made 
before January 7, 2013. During the 90-day period, interested parties
