Endangered Species; Receipt of Applications for Permit, 54479-54481 [2013-21445]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 171 / Wednesday, September 4, 2013 / Notices tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES incidental take anticipated from development in the short term while a more comprehensive long-term or rangewide habitat conservation plan is prepared for the species. We request public comment on the draft low-effect HCP. Section 9 of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) (16 U.S.C. 1538) and its implementing regulations prohibit take of species listed as endangered or threatened. The definition of take under the ESA includes to ‘‘harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect listed species or to attempt to engage in such conduct’’ (16 U.S.C. 1532(19)). Section 10 of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1539) establishes a program whereby persons seeking to pursue activities that are otherwise legal, but could result in take of federally protected species, may receive an incidental take permit (ITP). Applicants for ITPs must submit a HCP that meets the section 10 permit issuance criteria. ‘‘Low-effect’’ incidental take permits are those permits that, despite their authorization of some small level of incidental take, individually and cumulatively have a minor or negligible effect on the species covered in the HCP. Background In 1998, we issued an incidental take permit to Iron County (County) under the Iron County HCP for take of Utah prairie dogs from development activities. In the meantime, we have been working with all counties within the range of the species to develop a comprehensive rangewide HCP that would contribute to recovery of the species. The Iron County commissioners are concerned that projected increases in economic development in the county during the next couple of years may result in exceeding the amount of take authorized under the 1998 Iron County HCP. As a bridge to cover additional take anticipated before a range-wide or longterm plan can be completed, Iron County has submitted a draft low-effect HCP that would authorize the take of no more than 600 acres (243 hectares) of occupied Utah prairie dog habitat over a maximum 3-year period. The take would be distributed into two zones (a green zone, which primarily encompasses parcels within already developed areas of the cities, and a red zone, which is on the outskirts of the developing communities). The loweffect HCP’s minimization and mitigation measures in the green zone and, for small, low-quality colonies, in the red zone would essentially mimic those of the 1998 Iron County HCP. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:51 Sep 03, 2013 Jkt 229001 Within the red zone, large colonies and medium- or high-quality Utah prairie dog habitats would be avoided under this low-effect HCP, but could be mitigated through the 1998 Iron County HCP and the use of conservation banks. Under this low-effect HCP, developers would apply to the County for their individual take permits or letters of authorization. Our Preliminary Determination We have made a preliminary determination that the HCP qualifies as a ‘‘low-effect’’ habitat conservation plan as defined by our Habitat Conservation Planning Handbook (November 1996). We base our determination on the following information: (1) The size and scope of the incidental take of Utah prairie dogs is relatively small, and limited to maximum of 600 ac (243 ha) of Utah prairie dog occupied habitats over three years; (2) The total amount of take amounts to only 3.6 percent of the total mapped Utah prairie dog habitat in the West Desert Recovery Unit; and (3) Most of the take is limited to already developed areas or those areas projected for development in the near future. These areas do not serve to support current or future metapopulations and objectives for recovery of the species in the wild. Overall we conclude that implementation of the plan would result in overall minor or negligible effects on the Utah prairie dog and its habitats. We may revise this preliminary determination based on public comments submitted in response to this notice.
