The Memorandum of Understanding Between the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, U.S. Department of the Interior, and U.S. Department of Agriculture establishes a Trustee Council charged with developing and implementing a restoration plan for ecological restoration in the Southeast Missouri Ozarks. The Trustees followed the Natural Resource Damage Assessment and Restoration (NRDAR) regulations found at 43 CFR part 11 for the development of the Plan.

The objective of the NRDAR process in the Southeast Missouri Ozarks is to compensate the public, through environmental restoration, for losses of natural resources that have been injured by releases of hazardous substances into the environment. The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA, more commonly known as the Federal ‘‘Superfund’’ law) [42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq.] and the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (commonly known as the Clean Water Act (CWA)) [33 U.S.C. 1251 et seq.] authorize States, federally recognized tribes, and certain Federal agencies that have authority for natural resources ‘‘belonging to, managed by, controlled by or appertaining to or otherwise controlled by the United States ’’ to act as ‘‘trustees’’ on behalf of the public, to restore, rehabilitate, replace, and/or acquire natural resources equivalent to those injured by releases of hazardous substances. The Trustees worked together in a cooperative process to identify appropriate restoration activities to address natural resource injuries caused by releases of hazardous substances into the Southeast Missouri Ozarks environment. The results of this administrative process are contained in the planning and decision document being published for public review under CERCLA. Natural resource damages received, either through negotiated settlements or adjudicated awards, must be used to restore, rehabilitate, replace and/or acquire the equivalent of those injured natural resources. The Plan addresses the Trustees’ overall approach to restore, rehabilitate, replace and/or acquire the equivalent of natural resources injured by the release of hazardous substances into the Southeast Missouri Ozarks environment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DOI (represented by the FWS), the USDA 
(represented by the USFS), and the State of Missouri, acting through 
the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, together are trustees 
(Trustees) for natural resources considered in this restoration plan, 
pursuant to subpart G of the National Oil and Hazardous Substances 
Pollution Contingency Plan (40 CFR 300.600 and 300.610) and Executive 
Order 12580. The Memorandum of Understanding Between the Missouri 
Department of Natural Resources, U.S. Department of the Interior, and 
U.S. Department of Agriculture establishes a Trustee Council charged 
with developing and implementing a restoration plan for ecological 
restoration in the Southeast Missouri Ozarks.
    The Trustees followed the Natural Resource Damage Assessment and 
Restoration (NRDAR) regulations found at 43 CFR part 11 for the 
development of the Plan. The draft Southeast Missouri Ozarks Regional 
Restoration Plan and Environmental Assessment will be finalized prior 
to implementation after all public comments received during the public 
comment period are considered. Any significant additions or 
modifications to the Plan as restoration actions proceed will be made 
available for public review before any additions or modification are 
undertaken.
    The objective of the NRDAR process in the Southeast Missouri Ozarks 
is to compensate the public, through environmental restoration, for 
losses of natural resources that have been injured by releases of 
hazardous substances into the environment. The Comprehensive 
Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA, more 
commonly known as the Federal ``Superfund'' law) [42 U.S.C. 9601 et 
seq.] and the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (commonly known as 
the Clean Water Act (CWA)) [33 U.S.C. 1251 et seq.] authorize States, 
federally recognized tribes, and certain Federal agencies that have 
authority for natural resources ``belonging to, managed by, controlled 
by or appertaining to or otherwise controlled by the United States '' 
to act as ``trustees'' on behalf of the public, to restore, 
rehabilitate, replace, and/or acquire natural resources equivalent to 
those injured by releases of hazardous substances.
    The Trustees worked together in a cooperative process to identify 
appropriate restoration activities to address natural resource injuries 
caused by releases of hazardous substances into the Southeast Missouri 
Ozarks environment. The results of this administrative process are 
contained in the planning and decision document being published for 
public review under CERCLA. Natural resource damages received, either 
through negotiated settlements or adjudicated awards, must be used to 
restore, rehabilitate, replace and/or acquire the equivalent of those 
injured natural resources. The Plan addresses the Trustees' overall 
approach to restore, rehabilitate, replace and/or acquire the 
equivalent of natural resources injured by the release of hazardous 
substances into the Southeast Missouri Ozarks environment.

    Interested members of the public are invited to review and comment

comments to the other Trustees. All comments received from individuals 
become part of the official public record. Requests for such comments 
will be handled in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act and 
the Council on Environmental Quality's NEPA regulations (40 CFR 
1506.6(f)), as well as the State of Missouri's Sunshine Law (Chapter 
610, RSMo.).
    The Trustees' practice is to make comments, including names and 
home addresses of respondents, available for public review during 
regular business hours. Individual respondents may request that their 
home address is withheld from the record, which each agency will honor 
to the extent allowable by law. If a respondent wishes to withhold his/
