Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 42 / Monday, March 4, 2013 / Notices perimeter of existing oak trees and/or groups of oaks. Close approximately 53 miles of system roads and 4 miles of motorized trails previously determined to not be open to the public motorized use with barricades or gates. These roads would continue to be used for FS administrative traffic for follow-up prescribed burning and other activities. Decommission approximately 5 miles of non-system roads and trails previously determined to not be open to public motorized use by obliterating, ripping, or hiding with woody debris. Use a combination of ground based and skyline logging systems to conduct commercial thinning on approximately 4,653 acres (274 acres of skyline and 4,124 acres of ground based in natural stands, and 274 acres ground based in plantations). Ground-based mechanized equipment (low-impact feller-buncher, hand felling, and whole tree yarding with conventional skidding equipment) would be restricted to slopes generally less than 40%. Where necessary during initial harvest, small trees and brush would be mechanically thinned to facilitate sawtimber and biomass removal. Skyline logging systems would be restricted to slopes generally over 40%. Conduct pre-commercial thinning and mastication of competing brush on 184 acres of conifer plantations, of which, 19 acres are located in California spotted owl Protected Activity Centers (PACs) and 164 acres located outside of PACs. Reconstruct approximately 73 miles of system roads and maintain approximately 30 miles of system roads. Reconstruction activities would involve the repair or replacement of inadequate drainage culverts, elimination of ruts, ditch repair, installation of waterbars and dips with inadequate water runoff control, gate installation to control seasonal use or replacement of existing non-functional gates or barricades, and removal of brush and small trees encroaching on roads. Perform follow-up machine piling, and cutting small trees and brush with pile burning on approximately 2,000 acres in natural stands to reduce ground fuels and ladder fuels. Machine piling would occur only on slopes less than 40%. Piling locations would be determined after harvest activities are complete. Reuse about 3 miles of existing temporary roads. After the temporary roads have served their use, they would be barricaded, obliterated and ripped to alleviate soil compaction, restore infiltration, and discourage unauthorized motor vehicle use. Approximately 70 existing landings and any new landings constructed in this project would be ripped to minimize erosion problems, restore infiltration, and discourage unauthorized motor vehicle use. Remove approximately 26 miles of barbed wire fencing, primarily from the vacant Caldor and Steely Creek Range Allotments. Materials that could be salvaged would be incorporated into future projects on the Forest and the remainder would be recycled. Boulders would be placed to protect the Pleasant Valley Mariposa lily occurrence along Big Mountain Road from vehicle traffic. Rehabilitate several dispersed camping areas and associated spur roads adjacent to Dogtown Creek and the Steely Fork Consumnes River. Activities would include, but not limited to, one or more of the following: Placement of boulders to define the foot print of the camping areas and close unnecessary spur roads; ripping of compacted areas and spur roads; construction of waterbars and/or other runoff control structures; placement of organic material on the ground surface of denuded areas, and planting of native vegetation. Responsible Official Forest Supervisor, Eldorado National Forest. Nature of Decision To Be Made The decision to be made is whether to adopt and implement the proposed action, an alternative to the proposed action, or take no action to improve forest health. Scoping Process This notice of intent initiates the scoping process, which guides the development of the environmental impact statement. To facilitate public 14073 participation, information about the proposed action will be mailed to all who express interest in the proposed action. It is important that reviewers provide their comments at such times and in such manner that they are useful to the agency’s preparation of the environmental impact statement. Therefore, comments should be provided prior to the close of the comment period and should clearly articulate the reviewer’s concerns and contentions. Comments received in response to this solicitation, including names and addresses of those who comment, will be part of the public record for this proposed action. Comments submitted anonymously will be accepted and considered, however. Dated: February 25, 2013. Kathryn D. Hardy, Forest Supervisor.

U.S.C. 2341 et seq.), the Economic Development Administration (EDA) has 
received petitions for certification of eligibility to apply for Trade 
Adjustment Assistance from the firms listed below. Accordingly, EDA has
