Download as PDF 43064 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 142 / Thursday, July 24, 2014 / Notices mitigation measures were developed and will be implemented as part of project approval by the City of Rialto to address the identified environmental effects. The mitigation measures include preservation of 2 acres of occupied Delhi Sands flower-loving fly habitat within the Colton Dunes Conservation Bank to offset impacts to the subspecies. Therefore, our proposed issuance of the requested incidental take permit qualifies as a categorical exclusion under NEPA, as provided by the Department of the Interior Manual (516 DM 2 Appendix 1, 516 DM 6 Appendix 1, and 516 DM 8.5(C)(2)). Based on our review of public comments that we receive in response to this notice, we may revise this preliminary determination. Next Steps Public Comments If you wish to comment on the permit application, proposed HCP, and associated documents, you may submit comments by any of the methods noted in the ADDRESSES section. Public Availability of Comments emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Applicants We provide this notice under section 10 of the Act (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and NEPA regulations (40 CFR 1506.6).

We will use the results of this consultation, in combination with the above findings, in our final analysis to determine whether or not to issue a permit. If the requirements and issuance criteria under section 10(a) are met, we will issue the permit to the applicant for incidental take of Delhi Sands flowerloving fly.

The chosen alternative, 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 funds in the southeast Missouri Ozarks resulting from the release of mining-related hazardous substances. The restoration plan complies with statutory requirement under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, enabling the expenditures of recovered restoration funds to benefit natural resources.

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 PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 and decision documents that were published for public review on the following Web sites: http://www.fws.gov/midwest/es/ec/ nrda/SEMONRDA/index.html http://www.dnr.mo.gov/env/hwp/sfund/ nrda.htm On September 20, 2013, the FWS published a Federal Register notice opening a 45-day public comment period on the Draft Southeast Missouri Ozarks Regional Restoration Plan and Environmental Assessment (78 FR 57875). In response to comments received, the Trustees extended the original public comment period for an additional 30 days to December 4, 2013. E:\FR\FM\24JYN1.SGM 24JYN1
