SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The BLM prepared the draft RMPA and associated EA to analyze the potential impacts of modifying the boundary of the Blanca Wetlands Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC). The current ACEC boundary and management decisions for resources are described in the San Luis Resource Area Approved RMP (December 1991). The formal public scoping process for the RMPA and EA began on October 11, 2011, with the publication of a Notice of Intent in the Federal Register. Major issues considered in the RMPA and associated EA include geological and paleontological resources; vegetation and soils; wildlife and terrestrial habitat; aquatic, wetlands and riparian areas; water resources; cultural resources; recreation; science and education; livestock grazing; transportation and travel management; lands and realty; and special designations. The draft RMPA and associated EA evaluate the No Action Alternative and two alternatives for modifying the boundary of the Blanca Wetlands ACEC (Alternatives 1 and 2). The BLM identified Alternative 1 as the preferred alternative. The No Action Alternative would retain the current management direction and Blanca Wetlands ACEC boundary (9,147 acres) specified in the 1991 San Luis Resource Area RMP. Alternative 1 would enlarge the Blanca Wetlands ACEC to 122,762 acres. Alternative 2 would enlarge the Blanca Wetlands ACEC to 99,062 acres. Both Alternatives 1 and 2 would provide special management to maintain and improve wetlands for waterfowl production, enhance historical wetlands, and emphasize recreation related to warm water fisheries and watchable wildlife. Neither alternative specifies any new resource use VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:04 Nov 19, 2013 Jkt 232001 limitations for the expanded portion of the Blanca Wetlands ACEC. The BLM would establish appropriate resource use limitations in the future as wetlands are developed. No new water rights would be created and no land ownership jurisdictions would change should the boundary be expanded as a result of any alternative. Pursuant to 43 CFR 1610.7–2(b), this notice announces a concurrent public comment period on the proposed expanded ACEC. Please note that public comments will be available for public review and disclosure at the above address during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.), Monday through Friday, except holidays. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Authority: 40 CFR 1506.6, 43 CFR 1610.2.
