typographical error in a recently published notice that announced the 
availability of the draft environmental assessment (DEA) and the draft 
Proposed Wright Solar Park Multi-Species Habitat Conservation Plan 
(HCP). Due to the inadvertent typographical error, the prior notice 
mischaracterized the species for which the applicant seeks a permit. 
The error was not in the DEA or the HCP, but only in one section of our 
previous Federal Register notice. If you requested documents for 
review, you need not request them again. If you submitted comments, you 
need not resubmit them.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On January 13, 2015, we published a notice in the Federal Register 
(80 FR 1660) making available for public comment a draft environmental 
assessment (EA) under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as 
amended (NEPA; 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), in response to an application 
from Wright Solar Park, LLC (the applicant) for an incidental take 
permit (ITP) pursuant to the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended 
(16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.; Act). The applicant prepared the draft Wright 
Solar Park Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) to describe and implement a 
conservation plan that will minimize and mitigate environmental effects 
associated with the construction, operation, maintenance, and 
decommissioning of an up-to-200-megawatt photovoltaic power generating 
facility and implementation of conservation actions associated with the 
HCP in Merced County, California. We announced a 60-day public comment 
period on the permit application, including the draft EA and the 
proposed HCP. We requested data, comments, new information, or 
suggestions from the public, other concerned governmental agencies, the 
scientific community, Tribes, industry, or any other interested party.

For More Information

    The January 13, 2015, notice provided information about Wright 
Solar Park HCP and our draft EA prepared under the National 
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.). Please refer 
to that notice for further information, including details about public 
meetings, ways to obtain copies of the documents, and comment 
submission.

Correction

    Due to an inadvertent typographical error, the January 13, 2015, 
Federal Register notice did not accurately reflect the species for 
which we will consider issuing incidental take. In the Next Steps 
section, the current notice states: ``If we determine that those 
requirements are met, we will issue a permit to the applicant for the 
incidental take of desert tortoise.'' This sentence is incorrect and 
should read: ``If we determine that those requirements are met, we will 
issue a permit to the applicant for the incidental take of covered 
species.''
    Please note that all the documents we made available from the date 
of publication of our earlier notice (January 13, 2015) are correct. If 
you already obtained any documents for review, you do not need to 
request new copies. If you already submitted comments, you need not 
resubmit them. The only error was a typographical error in the text of 
the Federal Register notice.

Service, Sacramento, California.
