Download as PDF 11220 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 32 / Friday, February 15, 2013 / Notices EARIP throughout the development of the HCP so conservation of covered species would be assured and recovery would not be precluded by the covered activities. The HCP incorporates our recommendations for minimization and mitigation of impacts, as well as steps to monitor the effects of the HCP and ensure success. Annual monitoring, as well as coordination and reporting mechanisms, have been designed to ensure that changes in the conservation measures can be implemented if proposed measures prove ineffective (adaptive management). We have determined that the preferred alternative best balances the protection and management of habitat for covered species, while providing compliance with the Act for withdrawal and use of Edwards Aquifer water in the permit area. Considerations used in this decision include whether (1) mitigation will benefit the covered species, (2) adaptive management of the conservation measures will ensure that the goals and objectives of the HCP are realized, (3) conservation measures will protect and enhance habitat, (4) mitigation measures for the covered species will fully offset anticipated impacts to species and provide recovery opportunities, and (5) the HCP is consistent with the covered species’ recovery plans. A final permit decision will be made no sooner than 30 days after the publication of this notice of availability. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Reviewing Documents You may obtain copies of the final EIS, ROD, and final HCP by going to http://www.fws.gov/southwest/es/ AustinTexas/.
