The publication of this notice initiates a 30-day scoping period, during which stakeholders and the public are encouraged to provide input and recommendations to the Service. Specifically, the Service seeks to identify people or organizations interested in the proposed action, any potentially significant issues to be analyzed, gaps in data or information, and alternatives to the proposed action that should be considered. The Service will host an open house and public scoping meeting that will provide an opportunity for stakeholders and the public to provide comments and information on the scope of issues and alternatives to be considered. Comments can also be submitted electronically or at the address above at any time during the scoping period. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is committed to providing access to this meeting for all participants. Please direct all requests for sign language interpreting services, closed captioning, or other accommodation needs with your request by close of business at least 3 working days prior to the meeting date to Mr. Adam Zerrenner, Field Supervisor, Austin Ecological Services Field Office, 10711 Burnet Road, Suite 200, Austin, TX 78758–4460; telephone 512/490–0057; facsimile 512/490–0974; or email Adam_Zerrenner@fws.gov, TTY 800–877–8339. to be subject to the take prohibitions of the Act. Where potential impacts could not be avoided and where a Federal nexus exists, measures designed to minimize and mitigate for impacts would be addressed through individual formal or informal consultation with the Service. In the absence of a Federal nexus, parties engaging in actions that would affect protected species would comply with the Act by obtaining individual section 10(a)(1)(B) incidental take permits on a project-by-project basis. Alternative Number One: Proposed Issuance of an Incidental Take Permit The proposed action is issuance of an incidental take permit based upon an HCP developed by the District. Texas counties that may be included in the proposed permit are those within the District’s jurisdiction, including portions of Caldwell, Hays, and Travis Counties. The District has indicated their preference for a permit duration of 20 years. The actions to be covered under the requested incidental take permit have yet to be determined, but may include activities associated with the ongoing groundwater management and use of the Barton Springs segment of the Edwards Aquifer, and actions to protect spring flow at the multiple spring outlets located at Barton Springs. The alternative could allow for a comprehensive mitigation approach for unavoidable impacts to listed species while reducing permit processing effort for the Service. Alternatives The alternative actions will be compared to the No-Action alternative in the draft EA. The No-Action alternative represents the estimated future conditions under the existing management and use, to which the alternative action’s estimated future conditions can be compared. The Service seeks comments and recommendations from stakeholders and the public regarding the alternatives under consideration and others that should be considered. Alternative Number Two: Water Demand Reduction Under this alternative, the District would create regulatory mechanisms that reduce pumping of fresh water from the Barton Springs Segment of the Edwards Aquifer during periods of drought. If such regulatory demand reductions could avoid adverse impacts to the listed species and their habitats, then no Incidental Take Permit would be required and none would be issued. If demand reduction regulatory programs could not avoid take of listed species, the District would develop an HCP that would minimize and mitigate impacts within their authorities to the maximum extent practicable and seek an Incidental Take Permit. No-Action Alternative Under the No-Action alternative, the management and use of the Aquifer will continue regardless of whether an Incidental Take Permit is sought or issued. The District, and those covered by the proposed permit, would continue Alternative Number Three: Water Supply Augmentation and Substitution Under Alternative Number Three, supplies of freshwater pumped from the Barton Springs segment of the Edwards Aquifer would be augmented or substituted with alternative supplies VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:13 Mar 04, 2014 Jkt 232001 PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 12523 during periods of drought. If such enhancement or substitution actions could avoid take of the listed species, no Incidental Take Permit would be required and none would be issued. If these measures were not able to avoid all such take, the District would develop an HCP that would minimize and mitigate the impacts of such take to the maximum extent practicable and seek an Incidental Take Permit.
