Angeles National Forest, California, Littlerock Reservoir Sediment Removal Project
Document Number: 2014-06011
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-03-19
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Forest Service
The USDA Forest Service (Forest Service) and the Palmdale Water District (District) will prepare a joint Environmental Impact Statement and Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) for sediment removal and construction of a grade control structure at Littlerock Reservoir, in Los Angeles County, California. The District has submitted an application to the Forest Service for a special use authorization for the project. The Forest Service is the lead Federal agency for the preparation of this EIS/EIR in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and the District is the lead State of California agency for the preparation of the EIS/EIR in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Littlerock Dam and Reservoir are located on Littlerock Creek, on National Forest System (NFS) lands managed by the Angeles National Forest. The project is approximately 10 miles southwest of the city of Palmdale, California. The Dam and Reservoir are operated and maintained by the District, pursuant to a Forest Service special use permit. The facilities serve both flood control and municipal water storage purposes. The Reservoir also provides recreational opportunities for boating, fishing, swimming, picnicking, and off-highway vehicle riding. The proposed action would construct a grade control structure midway between the dam and the southern end of the Reservoir; remove sediment from the Reservoir to restore original capacity; and maintain capacity by conducting annual sediment removal through the life of the authorization, until 2037. The Forest Service and the District invite written comments on the scope of this proposed project. In addition, the lead agencies give notice of this analysis so that interested and affected individuals are aware of how they may participate and contribute to the final decision.
Airworthiness Directives; Dowty Propellers Constant Speed Propellers
Document Number: 2014-06010
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-03-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to revise airworthiness directive (AD) 2010-17- 11R1, which applies to all Dowty Propellers R408/6-123-F/17 model propellers. AD 2010-17-11R1 requires initial and repetitive application of sealant between the bus bar assembly and the backplate assembly of certain line-replaceable units (LRUs). That AD also provides an optional terminating action to the repetitive re-application of sealant. This proposed AD would increase the interval allowed between the required re-application of sealant, and would specify an additional acceptable sealant. We are proposing this AD to prevent an in-flight double generator failure, which could result in reduced control of the airplane.
Airworthiness Directives; Airbus Airplanes
Document Number: 2014-06009
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-03-19
Agency: Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Transportation
We propose to adopt a new airworthiness directive (AD) for all Airbus Model A300 B4-603, B4-620, B4-622, B4-605R, B4-622R; F4-605R, F4-622R and C4-605R variant F airplanes. This proposed AD was prompted by reports of cracks in the frame base fittings connecting the frame lower positions to the center wing box. This proposed AD would require repetitive detailed inspections of the lower frame fittings, related investigative actions, and corrective actions if necessary. We are proposing this AD to detect and correct cracking on the lower frame fittings, which could reduce the structural integrity of the airplane.
