SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: After extensive environmental analysis, consideration of public comments, and application of pertinent Federal laws and policies, it is the decision of the Department of the Interior to offer to the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) a ROW grant for the construction, operation, maintenance, and termination of the mainline water pipeline, main power lines, pump stations, regulating tanks, and other ancillary facilities of the project for a groundwater delivery system. The Lincoln County Conservation, Recreation and Development Act of 2004, Public Law 108–424, directs the Secretary of the Interior to issue a ROW grant on Federal lands in Lincoln, and Clark counties, Nevada for this project. The ROW grant will authorize the use of public lands in perpetuity. The decision authorizes BLM to issue of a ROW grant to the SNWA for the preferred alternative as analyzed in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), issued on August 3, 2012. The Environmental Protection Agency published a Notice of Availabilty of the Final EIS in the Federal Register on August 3, 2012.

The ROD limits future pumping amounts to those amounts granted by the Nevada State Engineer rulings in March 2012. In addition, this decision adopts a realignment that would reroute the main power line from Spring Valley to the Gonder Substation across Steptoe Valley, slightly to the north within a corridor on U.S. Forest Service land. This realignment will require a special use permit from the U.S. Forest Service. Although the Final EIS analyzed future facilities and groundwater development on a programmatic basis, the ROD does not authorize any of this possible future development. Rather, the ROD lays out a process for the BLM to conduct analyses in the future for the additional development. The process includes BLM engagement with state, local and tribal governments and other Federal agencies, as well as the proponent, to develop groundwater and resource information and to establish data collection, action triggers, and monitoring and mitigation procedures. This is the final decision for the Department of the Interior and, in accordance with the regulations at 43 CFR 4.410(a)(3), is not subject to appeal under Departmental regulations at 43 CFR part 4. Any challenge to this decision, including the BLM Authorized Officer’s issuance of the ROW as directed by this decision, must be brought in federal district court. Amy Lueders, Nevada State Director.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: After extensive environmental analysis, 
consideration of public comments, and application of pertinent Federal 
laws and policies, it is the decision of the Department of the Interior 
to offer to the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) a ROW grant for 
the construction, operation, maintenance, and termination of the 
mainline water pipeline, main power lines, pump stations, regulating 
tanks, and other ancillary facilities of the project for a groundwater 
delivery system. The Lincoln County Conservation, Recreation and 
Development Act of 2004, Public Law 108-424, directs the Secretary of 
the Interior to issue a ROW grant on Federal lands in Lincoln, and 
Clark counties, Nevada for this project. The ROW grant will authorize 
the use of public lands in perpetuity. The decision authorizes BLM to 
issue of a ROW grant to the SNWA for the preferred alternative as 
analyzed in the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), issued on 
August 3, 2012. The Environmental Protection Agency published a Notice 
of Availabilty of the Final EIS in the Federal Register on August 3,

The ROD does not authorize any infrastructure facilities to be 
constructed in Snake Valley. The ROD limits future pumping amounts to 
those amounts granted by the Nevada State Engineer rulings in March 
2012. In addition, this decision adopts a realignment that would 
reroute the main power line from Spring Valley to the Gonder Substation 
across Steptoe Valley, slightly to the north within a corridor on U.S. 
Forest Service land. This realignment will require a special use permit

development on a programmatic basis, the ROD does not authorize any of 
this possible future development. Rather, the ROD lays out a process 
for the BLM to conduct analyses in the future for the additional 
development. The process includes BLM engagement with state, local and 
tribal governments and other Federal agencies, as well as the 
proponent, to develop groundwater and resource information and to 
establish data collection, action triggers, and monitoring and 
mitigation procedures.
    This is the final decision for the Department of the Interior and, 
in accordance with the regulations at 43 CFR 4.410(a)(3), is not 
subject to appeal under Departmental regulations at 43 CFR part 4. Any 
challenge to this decision, including the BLM Authorized Officer's 
issuance of the ROW as directed by this decision, must be brought in 
federal district court.
