ACTION: Notice of availability. AGENCY: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announce the availability of the federal agencies’ finding that Oregon has not submitted a fully approvable Coastal Nonpoint Pollution Control Program that meets the requirements of the Coastal Zone Act Reauthorization Amendments (CZARA). CZARA directs states and territories with coastal management programs previously approved under Section 306 of the Coastal Zone Management Act to develop and implement coastal nonpoint pollution control programs which must be submitted to NOAA and EPA for approval.

SUMMARY: (Federal Domestic Assistance Catalog 11.419 Coastal Zone Management Program Administration) NOAA and EPA (federal agencies) announce the availability of the federal agencies’ finding that Oregon has not submitted a fully approvable coastal nonpoint pollution control program (coastal nonpoint program). Section 6217(a) of the Coastal Zone Act Reauthorization Amendments (CZARA), 16 U.S.C. 1455b(a), requires that each state (or territory) with a coastal management program previously approved under section 306 of the Coastal Zone Management Act must prepare and submit to the federal agencies a coastal SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\27FEN1.SGM 27FEN1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 10668 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 39 / Friday, February 27, 2015 / Notices nonpoint program for approval by the federal agencies. State coastal nonpoint programs were to be submitted to the federal agencies for approval by July 1995, and Oregon submitted its program by that date. The federal agencies provided public notice of, and invited public comment on, their proposal to approve, with conditions, the Oregon program (62 FR 6216). The federal agencies approved the program by letter dated January 13, 1998, subject to the conditions specified in the letter (63 FR 11655). All of the conditions identified at that time must be met for Oregon to have a fully approvable coastal nonpoint program. The federal agencies’ finding announced in this notice addresses only the additional management measures related to forestry, which were conditioned in the 1998 approval. Prior to making this finding, the federal agencies invited public input on the federal agencies’ proposed decision and the reasoning for such a decision and provided a 90-day public comment period on the proposed decision (see December 20, 2013, Federal Register Notice 78 FR 77104). The federal agencies also announce their publication of a response to the comments received regarding the proposed decision. Over time, Oregon has made considerable progress in its coastal nonpoint program in order to satisfy the conditions the federal agencies identified. As explained in the decision document containing the rationale for the federal agencies’ decision, however, the federal agencies find that Oregon has not yet submitted a fully approvable program that meets the condition set for developing additional management measures for forestry, and consequently, the federal agencies find that Oregon has not submitted a program that is approvable under CZARA. The decision document describes why Oregon’s program has not yet satisfied the remaining conditions that relate to reducing the adverse effects of certain forestry-related activities on Oregon’s coastal water quality.

Has Not Submitted a Fully Approvable Coastal Nonpoint Pollution Control 
Program

ACTION: Notice of availability.

SUMMARY: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and 
the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announce the 
availability of the federal agencies' finding that Oregon has not 
submitted a fully approvable Coastal Nonpoint Pollution Control Program 
that meets the requirements of the Coastal Zone Act Reauthorization 
Amendments (CZARA). CZARA directs states and territories with coastal 
management programs previously approved under Section 306 of the 
Coastal Zone Management Act to develop and implement coastal nonpoint 
pollution control programs which must be submitted to NOAA and EPA for 
approval.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NOAA and EPA (federal agencies) announce the 
availability of the federal agencies' finding that Oregon has not 
submitted a fully approvable coastal nonpoint pollution control program 
(coastal nonpoint program). Section 6217(a) of the Coastal Zone Act 
Reauthorization Amendments (CZARA), 16 U.S.C. 1455b(a), requires that 
each state (or territory) with a coastal management program previously 
approved under section 306 of the Coastal Zone Management Act must 
prepare and submit to the federal agencies a coastal

nonpoint program for approval by the federal agencies. State coastal 
nonpoint programs were to be submitted to the federal agencies for 
approval by July 1995, and Oregon submitted its program by that date. 
The federal agencies provided public notice of, and invited public 
comment on, their proposal to approve, with conditions, the Oregon 
program (62 FR 6216). The federal agencies approved the program by 
letter dated January 13, 1998, subject to the conditions specified in 
the letter (63 FR 11655). All of the conditions identified at that time 
must be met for Oregon to have a fully approvable coastal nonpoint 
program. The federal agencies' finding announced in this notice 
addresses only the additional management measures related to forestry, 
which were conditioned in the 1998 approval.
    Prior to making this finding, the federal agencies invited public 
input on the federal agencies' proposed decision and the reasoning for 
such a decision and provided a 90-day public comment period on the 
proposed decision (see December 20, 2013, Federal Register Notice 78 FR 
77104). The federal agencies also announce their publication of a 
response to the comments received regarding the proposed decision.
    Over time, Oregon has made considerable progress in its coastal 
nonpoint program in order to satisfy the conditions the federal 
agencies identified. As explained in the decision document containing 
the rationale for the federal agencies' decision, however, the federal 
agencies find that Oregon has not yet submitted a fully approvable 
program that meets the condition set for developing additional 
management measures for forestry, and consequently, the federal 
agencies find that Oregon has not submitted a program that is 
approvable under CZARA. The decision document describes why Oregon's 
program has not yet satisfied the remaining conditions that relate to 
reducing the adverse effects of certain forestry-related activities on 
Oregon's coastal water quality.
