The EIS will analyze the environmental effects of the Services’ proposed issuance of incidental take permits for United’s construction, operations, and maintenance of water management facilities within the lower Santa Clara River watershed, Ventura County, California. The Services also provide this notice to announce a public scoping period, during which we invite other agencies, Tribes, and the public to submit written comments providing suggestions and information on issues and alternatives to include in the EIS. DATES: To ensure consideration of any written comments, please submit them by January 13, 2014.

We intend to prepare a draft EIS to evaluate the impacts of several alternatives related to the potential issuance of incidental take permits to United, as well as impacts of the implementation of the supporting proposed Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP). The permits would authorize the incidental take of threatened and endangered species that could occur as a result of United’s current and future water management activities. United intends to request a 50-year permit covering five species federally listed as threatened or endangered and six species that are not federally listed but may become listed during the term of the permit. For preparation of the EIS under NEPA, the Services will serve as co-lead Federal agencies, and the Corps will serve as a cooperating agency. The primary purpose of the scoping process is for the public and other agencies to assist in developing the EIS by identifying important issues and alternatives related to the HCP and the Services’ proposed action (issuance of incidental take permits).

Background

    On August 1, 2013, the Department published the preliminary results 
of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on solid 
urea from Russia.\1\ We invited interested parties to comment on the 
Preliminary Results. We received no comments.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department conducted this administrative review in accordance 
with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is solid urea, a high-nitrogen 
content fertilizer which is produced by reacting ammonia with carbon 
dioxide. The product is currently classified under the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedules of the United States (HTSUS) item number 
3102.10.00.00. Previously such merchandise was classified under item 
number 480.3000 of the Tariff Schedules of the United States. Although 
the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, 
the written description of the merchandise subject to the order is 
dispositive.

the Department conducted a verification of the sales information 
reported by MCC EuroChem in Russia.\2\

Final Results of the Review

    The Department made no changes to its calculations announced in the 
Preliminary Results. As a result of our review, we determine that a 
weighted-average dumping margin of 0.00 percent exists for MCC EuroChem 
for the period July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012.

Assessment Rates

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212 and the Final Modification,\3\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003.\4\ This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the period of review produced by MCC EuroChem for 
which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United 
States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed 
entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.

the final results of this review.
