Agency Information Collection Activities: Notice of Intent To Renew Collection, Procurement Contracts, 69806-69807 [2012-28234]

Download as PDF 69806 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 225 / Wednesday, November 21, 2012 / Notices Impact on Availability of Affected Species for Taking for Subsistence Uses There are no relevant subsistence uses of marine mammals implicated by this action. Endangered Species Act (ESA) The Southern Resident killer whale and humpback whale are listed as endangered under the ESA and the eastern distinct population segment (DPS) of Steller sea lion is currently listed as threatened, but NMFS has proposed delisting of the eastern DPS (77 FR 23209, April 18, 2012). These species may occur within the action area. NMFS’ Office of Protected Resources initiated formal consultation on the issuance of an IHA under section 101(a)(5)(A) of the MMPA for the takes of Southern Resident killer whales, humpback whales, and the eastern DPS of Steller sea lions. This consultation is complete, with the determination in a Biological Opinion that the activity is not likely to jeopardize the continued existence of the eastern DPS of Steller sea lions, Southern Resident killer whales, and humpback whales. In addition, the activity will not destroy or adversely modify designated critical habitat for Southern Resident killer whales. National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), as implemented by the regulations published by the Council on Environmental Quality (40 CFR parts 1500–1508), and NOAA Administrative Order 216–6, NMFS prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) to consider the direct, indirect, and cumulative effects to marine mammals and other applicable environmental resources resulting from issuance of a one-year IHA and the potential issuance of additional authorizations for incidental harassment for the ongoing project. NMFS has made a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) and, therefore, it is not necessary to prepare an environmental impact statement for the issuance of an IHA to WSF for this activity. As a result of these determinations, NMFS has issued an IHA to the WSF to incidentally take marine mammals during in-water construction activities associated with the Port Townsend ferry terminal transfer span replacement project in Port Townsend, WA, provided the previously mentioned mitigation, monitoring, and reporting requirements are incorporated.
