All elements of the PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 July 12, 2010, ROD and subsequent decisions remain in full force and effect, including all stipulations, monitoring, and mitigation measures. The ROD is based on the analyses contained in the Final EIS, the Draft Supplemental EIS, and the Final Supplemental EIS for the Project. It also relies on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s (FWS) Revision to the June 8, 2010, Ruby Pipeline Biological Opinion (BiOp). The Revised BiOp was published on July 5, 2013, and is posted on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) Web site (www.ferc.gov). The ROD, Final Supplemental EIS, and Revised BiOp were developed in response to an order from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The project has been constructed and is currently in operation. In 2011, the Center for Biological Diversity, Defenders of Wildlife, and the Summit Lake Paiute Tribe, among other entities, filed petitions for review of the 2010 BiOp and the BLM’s ROD in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Case Nos. 10–72356, 10–72552, 10–72762, 10– 72768, and 10–72775 (consolidated).
