SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Background The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), in cooperation with the Department of the Interior’s Fish and Wildlife Service and National Park Service, the Federal Aviation Administration, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC), the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and the New York City Departments of Environmental Protection and Parks and Recreation, intends to prepare a supplemental environmental impact statement (SEIS) to consider additional methods to reduce aircraft hazards associated with the mute swan population in Gateway National Recreation Area. Subsequent to the completion of a 2012 Supplement to the Gull Hazard Reduction Program at John F. Kennedy International Airport Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS), 1994, APHIS has determined there is a need for additional mute swan damage management beyond the impact parameter examined in the 2012 SEIS. The agencies are proposing to add additional techniques to the list of methods which may be used to reduce hazards from mute swans residing at Gateway National Recreation Area. Lethal methods could include shooting or euthanasia in conjunction with live traps. Non-lethal methods could include live-capture and adoption by private VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:49 Sep 23, 2013 Jkt 229001 entities with some mobility restrictions (e.g., pinioned wings, no release on public waters, release on private ponds only, marking or banding individual birds, and sterilization). Live-capture and relocation is not being proposed as an alternative at this time because it is currently prohibited by the NYSDEC. APHIS will use an interdisciplinary approach in compliance with National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Agency mandates, policies, and regulations to address the following questions in the proposed SEIS: • How can the agencies best respond to the need to minimize damage threats to aircraft and human safety from mute swan strikes? • What are the environmental impacts of implementing various management strategies, lethal and nonlethal, such as shooting, euthanasia, live capture, relocation, etc.? • Will the management strategies mentioned above have significant environmental impacts? The scope of the 2012 SEIS will be broadened to include analysis for expanded mute swan hazard management at the Gateway National Recreation Area. The SEIS will review the efficacy and impacts of current mute swan management efforts and analyze impacts of new and/or expanded methods for wildlife hazard management at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Members of the public are encouraged to visit the Web site for the SEIS at http:// www.aphis.usda.gov/regulations/ws/ ws_environmental_new_york.shtml to learn more about mute swan hazards to aircraft and methods for addressing hazards associated with mute swans at Gateway National Recreation Area. We anticipate that the draft SEIS will be available for review by the general public by November 30, 2013. The SEIS will be prepared in accordance with: (1) NEPA, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), (2) regulations of the Council on Environmental Quality for implementing the procedural provisions of NEPA (40 CFR parts 1500–1508), (3) USDA regulations implementing NEPA (7 CFR part 1b), and (4) APHIS’ NEPA Implementing Procedures (7 CFR part 372).
