FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ellen Brody, Great Lakes Regional Coordinator, 734–741–2270, ellen.brody@noaa.gov SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The NMSA authorizes the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) to designate and protect as national marine sanctuaries areas of the marine environment that are of special national significance due to their conservation, recreational, ecological, historical, scientific, cultural, archeological, educational, or esthetic qualities. Day-to-day management of national marine sanctuaries has been delegated by the Secretary to ONMS. The primary objective of the NMSA is to protect the biological and cultural resources of the sanctuary system, such as coral reefs, marine animals, historic shipwrecks, historic structures, and archaeological sites. The area being considered for designation as a national marine sanctuary is a region that includes 875 square miles of Lake Michigan waters and bottomlands adjacent to Manitowoc, Sheboygan, and Ozaukee counties and the cities of Port Washington, Sheboygan, Manitowoc, and Two Rivers. It includes 80 miles of E:\FR\FM\07OCN1.SGM 07OCN1 60632 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 194 / Wednesday, October 7, 2015 / Notices asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES shoreline and extends 9 to 14 miles from the shoreline. The area contains an extraordinary collection of submerged maritime heritage resources as demonstrated by the listing of 15 shipwrecks on the National Register of Historic Places. The area includes 39 known shipwrecks, 123 reported vessel losses, numerous other historic maritime-related features, and is adjacent to communities that have embraced their centuries-long relationship with Lake Michigan. This collection of shipwrecks is nationally significant because of the architectural and archaeological integrity of the shipwrecks, the representative nature of the sample of vessels, their location on one of the nation’s most important transportation corridors, and the potential for the discovery of other shipwrecks and submerged pre-contact cultural sites. The historic shipwrecks are representative of the vessels that sailed and steamed this corridor, carrying grain and raw materials east as other vessels came west loaded with coal. Many of the shipwrecks retain an unusual degree of architectural integrity, with 15 vessels that are intact. NOAA encourages the public to review the full nomination at www.nominate.noaa.gov/nominations. II. Need for Action Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, on behalf of the State of Wisconsin; the Cities of Two Rivers, Manitowoc, Sheboygan, and Port Washington; the Counties of Manitowoc, Sheboygan, and Ozaukee submitted a nomination to NOAA on December 2, 2014 through the Sanctuary Nomination Process (SNP) (79 FR 33851) asking NOAA to consider designating this area of Wisconsin’s Lake Michigan waters as a national marine sanctuary. The State of Wisconsin’s selection of this geographic area for the nomination drew heavily from a 2008 report conducted by the Wisconsin History Society and funded by the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program (Wisconsin’s Historic Shipwrecks: An Overview and Analysis of Locations for a State/Federal Partnership with the National Marine Sanctuary Program, 2008). This report analyzed all Wisconsin shipwrecks in both Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, concluding that the 875-square-mile area in the nomination had the best potential for a national marine sanctuary designation based on the national significance of the shipwrecks. The nomination also identified opportunities for NOAA to strengthen and expand on resource protection, education, and research programs by VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:12 Oct 06, 2015 Jkt 238001 state of Wisconsin agencies and in the four communities along the Lake Michigan coast. NOAA is initiating the process to designate this area as a national marine sanctuary based on the nomination submitted to the agency as part of the SNP. NOAA’s review of the nomination against the criteria and considerations of the SNP, including the requirement for broad-based community support indicated strong merit in proposing this area as a national marine sanctuary. NOAA completed its review of the nomination on February 5, 2015, and added the area to the inventory of nominations that are eligible for designation. Designation under the NMSA would allow NOAA to supplement and complement work by the State of Wisconsin and other federal agencies to protect this collection of nationally significant shipwrecks. III. Process The process for designating the Wisconsin–Lake Michigan area as a national marine sanctuary includes the following stages: 1. Public Scoping Process— Information collection and characterization, including the consideration of public comments received during scoping; 2. Preparation and release of draft designation documents including a draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) that identifies boundary alternatives, a draft management plan (DMP), as well as a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to define proposed sanctuary regulations. Draft documents would be used to initiate consultations with federal, state, or local agencies and other interested parties, as appropriate; 3. Public review and comment on the DEIS, DMP and NPRM; 4. Preparation and release of a final environmental impact statement, final management plan, including a response to public comments, with a final rule and regulations, if appropriate. With this notice, NOAA is initiating a public scoping process to: 1. Gather information and public comments from individuals, organizations, and government agencies on the designation of the Wisconsin– Lake Michigan area as a national marine sanctuary based on the communitybased nomination of December 2014, especially: (a) The spatial extent of the proposed boundary; and (b) the resources that would be protected; 2. Help determine the scope and significance of issues to be addressed in the preparation of an environmental analysis under NEPA including socioeconomic impacts of designation, PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 effects of designation on cultural and biological resources, and threats to resources within the proposed area; 3. Help determine the proposed action and possible alternatives pursuant to NEPA and to conduct any appropriate consultations. IV. Consultation Under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act This notice confirms that NOAA will fulfill its responsibility under section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) through the ongoing NEPA process, pursuant to 36 CFR 800.8(a) including the use of NEPA documents and public and stakeholder meetings to meet the section 106 requirements. The NHPA specifically applies to any agency undertaking that may affect historic properties. Pursuant to 36 CFR 800.16(1)(1), historic properties includes: ‘‘any prehistoric or historic district, site, building, structure or object included in, or eligible for inclusion in, the National Register of Historic Places maintained by the Secretary of the Interior. The term includes artifacts, records, and remains that are related to and located within such properties. The term includes properties of traditional religious and cultural importance to an Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian organization and that meet the National Register criteria.’’ In fulfilling its responsibility under the NHPA and NEPA, NOAA intends to identify consulting parties; identify historic properties and assess the effects of the undertaking on such properties; initiate formal consultation with the State Historic Preservation Officer, the Advisory Council of Historic Preservation, and other consulting parties; involve the public in accordance with NOAA’s NEPA procedures, and develop in consultation with identified consulting parties alternatives and proposed measures that might avoid, minimize or mitigate any adverse effects on historic properties and describe them in any environmental assessment or draft environmental impact statement.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The NMSA authorizes the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) to 
designate and protect as national marine sanctuaries areas of the 
marine environment that are of special national significance due to 
their conservation, recreational, ecological, historical, scientific, 
cultural, archeological, educational, or esthetic qualities. Day-to-day 
management of national marine sanctuaries has been delegated by the 
Secretary to ONMS. The primary objective of the NMSA is to protect the 
biological and cultural resources of the sanctuary system, such as 
coral reefs, marine animals, historic shipwrecks, historic structures, 
and archaeological sites.
    The area being considered for designation as a national marine 
sanctuary is a region that includes 875 square miles of Lake Michigan 
waters and bottomlands adjacent to Manitowoc, Sheboygan, and Ozaukee 
counties and the cities of Port Washington, Sheboygan, Manitowoc, and 
Two Rivers. It includes 80 miles of

shoreline and extends 9 to 14 miles from the shoreline. The area 
contains an extraordinary collection of submerged maritime heritage 
resources as demonstrated by the listing of 15 shipwrecks on the 
National Register of Historic Places. The area includes 39 known 
shipwrecks, 123 reported vessel losses, numerous other historic 
maritime-related features, and is adjacent to communities that have 
embraced their centuries-long relationship with Lake Michigan.
    This collection of shipwrecks is nationally significant because of 
the architectural and archaeological integrity of the shipwrecks, the 
representative nature of the sample of vessels, their location on one 
of the nation's most important transportation corridors, and the 
potential for the discovery of other shipwrecks and submerged pre-
contact cultural sites. The historic shipwrecks are representative of 
the vessels that sailed and steamed this corridor, carrying grain and

the shipwrecks retain an unusual degree of architectural integrity, 
with 15 vessels that are intact. NOAA encourages the public to review 
the full nomination at www.nominate.noaa.gov/nominations.

II. Need for Action

    Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, on behalf of the State of 
Wisconsin; the Cities of Two Rivers, Manitowoc, Sheboygan, and Port 
Washington; the Counties of Manitowoc, Sheboygan, and Ozaukee submitted 
a nomination to NOAA on December 2, 2014 through the Sanctuary 
Nomination Process (SNP) (79 FR 33851) asking NOAA to consider 
designating this area of Wisconsin's Lake Michigan waters as a national 
marine sanctuary. The State of Wisconsin's selection of this geographic 
area for the nomination drew heavily from a 2008 report conducted by 
the Wisconsin History Society and funded by the Wisconsin Coastal 
Management Program (Wisconsin's Historic Shipwrecks: An Overview and 
Analysis of Locations for a State/Federal Partnership with the National 
Marine Sanctuary Program, 2008). This report analyzed all Wisconsin 
shipwrecks in both Lake Superior and Lake Michigan, concluding that the 
875-square-mile area in the nomination had the best potential for a 
national marine sanctuary designation based on the national 
significance of the shipwrecks. The nomination also identified 
opportunities for NOAA to strengthen and expand on resource protection, 
education, and research programs by state of Wisconsin agencies and in 
the four communities along the Lake Michigan coast.
    NOAA is initiating the process to designate this area as a national 
marine sanctuary based on the nomination submitted to the agency as 
part of the SNP. NOAA's review of the nomination against the criteria 
and considerations of the SNP, including the requirement for broad-
based community support indicated strong merit in proposing this area 
as a national marine sanctuary. NOAA completed its review of the 
nomination on February 5, 2015, and added the area to the inventory of 
nominations that are eligible for designation. Designation under the 
NMSA would allow NOAA to supplement and complement work by the State of 
Wisconsin and other federal agencies to protect this collection of 
nationally significant shipwrecks.

III. Process

    The process for designating the Wisconsin-Lake Michigan area as a 
national marine sanctuary includes the following stages:
    1. Public Scoping Process-- Information collection and 
characterization, including the consideration of public comments 
received during scoping;
    2. Preparation and release of draft designation documents including 
a draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) that identifies boundary 
alternatives, a draft management plan (DMP), as well as a notice of 
proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to define proposed sanctuary regulations. 
Draft documents would be used to initiate consultations with federal, 
state, or local agencies and other interested parties, as appropriate;
    3. Public review and comment on the DEIS, DMP and NPRM;
    4. Preparation and release of a final environmental impact 
statement, final management plan, including a response to public 
comments, with a final rule and regulations, if appropriate.
    With this notice, NOAA is initiating a public scoping process to:
    1. Gather information and public comments from individuals, 
organizations, and government agencies on the designation of the 
Wisconsin-Lake Michigan area as a national marine sanctuary based on 
the community-based nomination of December 2014, especially: (a) The 
spatial extent of the proposed boundary; and (b) the resources that 
would be protected;
    2. Help determine the scope and significance of issues to be 
addressed in the preparation of an environmental analysis under NEPA 
including socioeconomic impacts of designation, effects of designation 
on cultural and biological resources, and threats to resources within 
the proposed area;
    3. Help determine the proposed action and possible alternatives 
pursuant to NEPA and to conduct any appropriate consultations.

IV. Consultation Under Section 106 of the National Historic 
Preservation Act

    This notice confirms that NOAA will fulfill its responsibility 
under section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) 
through the ongoing NEPA process, pursuant to 36 CFR 800.8(a) including 
the use of NEPA documents and public and stakeholder meetings to meet 
the section 106 requirements. The NHPA specifically applies to any 
agency undertaking that may affect historic properties. Pursuant to 36 
CFR 800.16(1)(1), historic properties includes: ``any prehistoric or 
historic district, site, building, structure or object included in, or 
eligible for inclusion in, the National Register of Historic Places 
maintained by the Secretary of the Interior. The term includes 
artifacts, records, and remains that are related to and located within 
such properties. The term includes properties of traditional religious 
and cultural importance to an Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian 
organization and that meet the National Register criteria.''
    In fulfilling its responsibility under the NHPA and NEPA, NOAA 
intends to identify consulting parties; identify historic properties 
and assess the effects of the undertaking on such properties; initiate 
formal consultation with the State Historic Preservation Officer, the 
Advisory Council of Historic Preservation, and other consulting 
parties; involve the public in accordance with NOAA's NEPA procedures, 
and develop in consultation with identified consulting parties 
alternatives and proposed measures that might avoid, minimize or 
mitigate any adverse effects on historic properties and describe them 
in any environmental assessment or draft environmental impact 
statement.
