SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice advises the public and other 
agencies of the availability of the Finding of No Significant Impact 
(FONSI) for the Final Southeast Missouri Ozarks Regional Restoration 
Plan and Environmental Assessment (Plan). The following agencies 
formally selected Alternative D of the Plan through signing of the 
FONSI: The U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI), acting through the 
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS); the United States Department of 
Agriculture, acting through the U.S. Forest Service (USFS); and the 
State of Missouri, acting through the Missouri Department of Natural 
Resources (MDNR). Alternative D provides a project selection process 
for natural resource-based restoration, using a tiered project 
selection process that evaluates the feasibility of primary 
restoration, compensatory restoration, and acquisition of equivalent 
resources. The Plan was written to facilitate the expenditure of 
restoration in the southeast Missouri Ozarks resulting from the release 
of mining-related hazardous substances.
    The FWS, the USFS, and the MDNR (Trustees) are trustees for natural 
resources considered in the Plan, pursuant to subpart G of the National 
Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (40 CFR 300.600 
and 300.610) and Executive Order 12580. The Memorandum of Understanding 
Between the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, U.S. Department 
of Agriculture, and U.S. Department of the Interior establishes a 
Trustee Council charged with developing and implementing a restoration 
plan for ecological restoration in the southeast Missouri Ozarks. The 
Trustees followed the Natural Resource Damage Assessment and 
Restoration (NRDAR) regulations found at 43 CFR part 11 for the 
development of the Plan. The development of the restoration plan is 
required under section 111 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, 
Compensation, and Liability Act (42 U.S.C. 111; CERCLA).
    The objective of the NRDAR process is to compensate the public for 
losses to natural resources and their services that have been injured 
by releases of hazardous substances into the environment. The 
Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act 
(CERCLA, more commonly known as the Federal ``Superfund'' law; 42 
U.S.C. 9601, et seq.) and the Federal Water Pollution Control Act 
(commonly known as the Clean Water Act (CWA); 33 U.S.C. 1251, et seq.) 
authorize States, federally recognized tribes, and certain Federal 
agencies that have authority for natural resources ``belonging to, 
managed by, held in trust by, appertaining to, or otherwise controlled 
by the United States'' to act as ``trustees'' on behalf of the public, 
to restore, rehabilitate, replace, and/or acquire natural resources 
equivalent to those injured by releases of hazardous substances.
    The Trustees have worked together to determine the appropriate 
restoration process to identify and select restoration projects to 
address natural resource injuries caused by the release of hazardous 
substances into the southeast Missouri Ozarks environment. The results 
of this administrative process are contained in a series of planning
