ACTION: Notice of availability; request for comments. The Coastal Barrier Resources Act (CBRA) requires the Secretary of the Interior (Secretary) to review the maps of the John H. Chafee Coastal Barrier Resources System (CBRS) at least once every 5 years and make any minor and technical modifications to the boundaries of the CBRS as are necessary to reflect changes that have occurred in the size or location of any CBRS unit as a result of natural forces. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) has conducted this review and has prepared draft revised maps for all of the CBRS units in Alabama, all units in Florida (except for one unit that was remapped mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:14 Nov 16, 2015 Jkt 238001 Background Background information on the CBRA (16 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) and the CBRS, as well as information on the digital conversion effort and the methodology used to produce the revised maps, can be found in a notice the Service published in the Federal Register on August 29, 2013 (78 FR 53467). For information on how to access the draft revised maps, see the Availability of Draft Maps and Related Information section below. Proposed Modifications to the CBRS Boundaries This notice fulfills a requirement under the CBRA (16 U.S.C. 3503(f)(3)) that the Secretary publish a notice in the Federal Register of any proposed revisions to the CBRS to reflect: (1) Changes that have occurred to the CBRS as a result of natural forces (e.g., erosion and accretion); (2) voluntary additions to the CBRS requested by property owners; or (3) additions of excess Federal property to the CBRS (as authorized under 16 U.S.C. 3503(c)–(e)). The Service’s review of all of the CBRS units in Alabama, all units in Florida (except for one unit that was remapped in 2014), all units in Georgia, several units in Louisiana, all units in Michigan, the only unit in Minnesota, all units in Mississippi, all units in the PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Great Lakes region of New York, all units in Ohio, and all units in Wisconsin resulted in a set of 205 draft revised maps, dated August 14, 2015, depicting a total of 250 CBRS units. The set of maps includes 9 maps for 10 CBRS units located in Alabama, 93 maps for 128 CBRS units located in Florida, 16 maps for 13 CBRS units located in Georgia, 15 maps for 7 CBRS units located in Louisiana, 36 maps for 46 CBRS units located in Michigan, 1 map for 1 CBRS unit located in Minnesota, 9 maps for 7 CBRS units located in Mississippi, 14 maps for 21 CBRS units located in the Great Lakes region of New York, 7 maps for 10 CBRS units located in Ohio, and 5 maps for 7 CBRS units located in Wisconsin. The Service’s review of these areas found a total of 136 CBRS units that require modifications due to natural changes in the size or location of the units since they were last mapped. The Service’s review of these areas also found two CBRS units that require modifications to correct administrative errors that were made in the past, on maps for Santa Rosa County, Florida, and Jackson County, Mississippi. Following the close of the comment period on the date listed in the DATES section of this document, the Service will review all comments received from Federal, State, and local officials on the draft maps; make adjustments to the draft maps, as appropriate; and publish a notice in the Federal Register to announce the availability of the final revised maps.

MI–62: SAUX HEAD UNIT. The boundary of the unit has been modified to reflect natural changes that have occurred in the configuration of the shoreline of Saux Head Lake. Minnesota The Service’s review found that the boundaries of Unit MN–01 (the only PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71831 CBRS unit in Minnesota) do not need to be modified due to changes from natural forces. Mississippi The Service’s review found four of the seven CBRS units in Mississippi to have changed due to natural forces. Additionally, the Service’s review found that one of these units, R01A, contained administrative errors that were made by the Service in 1990. MS–01P: GULF ISLANDS UNIT. The gap between the two discrete segments of the unit, located near the western tip of Petit Bois Island, has been moved to the west due to the migration of Petit Bois Island towards Horn Island Pass Channel. MS–02: MARSH POINT UNIT. Portions of the landward boundary of the unit have been modified to reflect natural changes that have occurred in the configuration of the wetland/ fastland interface. MS–04: HERON BAY POINT UNIT. Three segments of offshore boundary have been added to the eastern, western, and southern portions of the unit to clarify the extent of the unit. The southern boundary of the unit is coincident with the northern boundary of Unit LA–02 in Louisiana. No modifications were made to the boundaries of this unit as a result of changes due to natural forces. R01A: BELLE FONTAINE POINT UNIT. The western boundary of the unit has been modified to reflect natural changes in the wetlands along Graveline Bay. Additionally, three areas of the unit have been modified to correct administrative errors in the transcription of the boundary from the draft map that was included in the Service’s 1988 Report to Congress: Volume 17, Mississippi, and was reviewed and approved by Congress, to the official map dated October 24, 1990, for this unit. On the landward side of the unit, the boundary on the official 1990 map inaccurately showed more wetlands within the unit than the 1988 draft map. Furthermore, the eastern and western lateral boundaries of the unit were intended to remain the same as those depicted on the original map for this unit dated September 30, 1982, which was adopted by Congress with the enactment of the CBRA. However, the lateral boundaries were inadvertently moved by as much as 950 feet when they were transcribed from the 1988 draft map onto the new base map used for the official 1990 map. These corrections are supported by an assessment of the historical CBRS maps for the area and the legislative history of the CBIA. These errors likely occurred due to the fact that the boundary shown on the draft map that was approved by Congress had to be transcribed onto a new base map in 1990 in order to create the official map for the unit, and the new base map showed slightly updated natural and development features. R02: DEER ISLAND UNIT. The official October 24, 1990, map of this unit does not include a complete depiction of the western end of Deer Island due to the limitations of the base map that was used at the time. The western portion of the boundary of the unit goes up to edge of the U.S. Geological Survey Topographic Quadrangle that it was printed E:\FR\FM\17NON1.SGM 17NON1 71832 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 221 / Tuesday, November 17, 2015 / Notices on, and the unit is assumed to extend to the west to cover all of Deer Island. A segment of boundary has been added to the western end of the unit to match the location of the boundary as depicted on the Congressionally adopted map that first established this unit, dated September 30, 1982, to clearly show that all of Deer Island is within the unit. This clarification is supported by an assessment of the historical CBRS maps for this area as well as the legislative history of the CBIA. No modifications were made to the boundaries of this unit as a result of changes due to natural forces. R03: CAT ISLAND UNIT. The western segment of the unit has been modified to account for erosion of the wetlands on the western side of Cat Island. The eastern segment of the unit, consisting of Middle Spit, South Spit, and associated shoals, has been modified to account for erosion of the wetlands, and erosion and migration of the spit. Due to the rapid rate of erosion in this area, some of the boundaries have been generalized. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES New York The Service’s review found 15 of the 21 CBRS units in the Great Lakes region of New York (the only CBRS units in New York that were part of this review) to have changed due to natural forces.

AGENCY: Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of availability; request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Coastal Barrier Resources Act (CBRA) requires the 
Secretary of the Interior (Secretary) to review the maps of the John H. 
Chafee Coastal Barrier Resources System (CBRS) at least once every 5 
years and make any minor and technical modifications to the boundaries 
of the CBRS as are necessary to reflect changes that have occurred in 
the size or location of any CBRS unit as a result of natural forces. 
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) has conducted this review 
and has prepared draft revised maps for all of the CBRS units in 
Alabama, all units in Florida (except for one unit that was remapped in 
2014), all units in Georgia, several units in Louisiana, all units in 
Michigan, the only unit in Minnesota, all units in Mississippi, all 
units in the Great Lakes region of New York, all units in Ohio, and all 
units in Wisconsin. The draft maps were produced by the Service as part 
of a CBRS ``digital conversion'' project that is done in partnership 
with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This notice 
announces the findings of the Service's review and request for comments 
on the draft revised maps from Federal, State, and local officials.

DATES: To ensure consideration, the Service must receive written 
comments by December 17, 2015.

ADDRESSES: Mail comments to Katie Niemi, Coastal Barriers Coordinator, 
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Ecological Services Program, 5275 
Leesburg Pike, MS: ES, Falls Church, VA 22041, or send comments by 
electronic mail (email) to CBRAcomments@fws.gov.

Coordinator; (703) 358-2071 (telephone); or CBRA@fws.gov (email).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Background information on the CBRA (16 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) and the 
CBRS, as well as information on the digital conversion effort and the 
methodology used to produce the revised maps, can be found in a notice 
the Service published in the Federal Register on August 29, 2013 (78 FR 
53467).

Availability of Draft Maps and Related Information section below.

Proposed Modifications to the CBRS Boundaries

    This notice fulfills a requirement under the CBRA (16 U.S.C. 
3503(f)(3)) that the Secretary publish a notice in the Federal Register 
of any proposed revisions to the CBRS to reflect: (1) Changes that have 
occurred to the CBRS as a result of natural forces (e.g., erosion and 
accretion); (2) voluntary additions to the CBRS requested by property 
owners; or (3) additions of excess Federal property to the CBRS (as 
authorized under 16 U.S.C. 3503(c)-(e)).
    The Service's review of all of the CBRS units in Alabama, all units 
in Florida (except for one unit that was remapped in 2014), all units 
in Georgia, several units in Louisiana, all units in Michigan, the only 
unit in Minnesota, all units in Mississippi, all units in the Great 
Lakes region of New York, all units in Ohio, and all units in Wisconsin 
resulted in a set of 205 draft revised maps, dated August 14, 2015, 
depicting a total of 250 CBRS units. The set of maps includes 9 maps 
for 10 CBRS units located in Alabama, 93 maps for 128 CBRS units 
located in Florida, 16 maps for 13 CBRS units located in Georgia, 15 
maps for 7 CBRS units located in Louisiana, 36 maps for 46 CBRS units 
located in Michigan, 1 map for 1 CBRS unit located in Minnesota, 9 maps 
for 7 CBRS units located in Mississippi, 14 maps for 21 CBRS units 
located in the Great Lakes region of New York, 7 maps for 10 CBRS units 
located in Ohio, and 5 maps for 7 CBRS units located in Wisconsin. The 
Service's review of these areas found a total of 136 CBRS units that 
require modifications due to natural changes in the size or location of 
the units since they were last mapped. The Service's review of these 
areas also found two CBRS units that require modifications to correct 
administrative errors that were made in the past, on maps for Santa 
Rosa County, Florida, and Jackson County, Mississippi.
    Following the close of the comment period on the date listed in the 
DATES section of this document, the Service will review all comments 
received from Federal, State, and local officials on the draft maps; 
make adjustments to the draft maps, as appropriate; and publish a 
notice in the Federal Register to announce the availability of the 
final revised maps.
    Below is a summary of the changes depicted on the draft revised 
maps.

Alabama

    The Service's review found 6 of the 10 CBRS units in Alabama to 
have changed due to natural forces.

    AL-01P: PERDIDO KEY UNIT. A portion of the northern boundary of 
the unit has been modified to account for erosion along the 
shoreline of Old River. The western boundary of the unit has been 
modified to account for both erosion and accretion around Florida 
Point.
    Q01: MOBILE POINT UNIT. There are five discrete segments of Unit 
Q01, but modifications to account for natural changes were only 
necessary in the largest segment. The southern boundary of the 
excluded area has been modified to account for erosion along the

Minnesota

    The Service's review found that the boundaries of Unit MN-01 (the 
only CBRS unit in Minnesota) do not need to be modified due to changes 
from natural forces.

Mississippi

    The Service's review found four of the seven CBRS units in 
Mississippi to have changed due to natural forces. Additionally, the 
Service's review found that one of these units, R01A, contained 
administrative errors that were made by the Service in 1990.

    MS-01P: GULF ISLANDS UNIT. The gap between the two discrete 
segments of the unit, located near the western tip of Petit Bois 
Island, has been moved to the west due to the migration of Petit 
Bois Island towards Horn Island Pass Channel.
    MS-02: MARSH POINT UNIT. Portions of the landward boundary of 
the unit have been modified to reflect natural changes that have 
occurred in the configuration of the wetland/fastland interface.
    MS-04: HERON BAY POINT UNIT. Three segments of offshore boundary 
have been added to the eastern, western, and southern portions of 
the unit to clarify the extent of the unit. The southern boundary of 
the unit is coincident with the northern boundary of Unit LA-02 in 
Louisiana. No modifications were made to the boundaries of this unit 
as a result of changes due to natural forces.
    R01A: BELLE FONTAINE POINT UNIT. The western boundary of the 
unit has been modified to reflect natural changes in the wetlands 
along Graveline Bay. Additionally, three areas of the unit have been 
modified to correct administrative errors in the transcription of 
the boundary from the draft map that was included in the Service's 
1988 Report to Congress: Volume 17, Mississippi, and was reviewed 
and approved by Congress, to the official map dated October 24, 
1990, for this unit. On the landward side of the unit, the boundary 
on the official 1990 map inaccurately showed more wetlands within 
the unit than the 1988 draft map. Furthermore, the eastern and 
western lateral boundaries of the unit were intended to remain the 
same as those depicted on the original map for this unit dated 
September 30, 1982, which was adopted by Congress with the enactment 
of the CBRA. However, the lateral boundaries were inadvertently 
moved by as much as 950 feet when they were transcribed from the 
1988 draft map onto the new base map used for the official 1990 map. 
These corrections are supported by an assessment of the historical 
CBRS maps for the area and the legislative history of the CBIA. 
These errors likely occurred due to the fact that the boundary shown 
on the draft map that was approved by Congress had to be transcribed 
onto a new base map in 1990 in order to create the official map for 
the unit, and the new base map showed slightly updated natural and 
development features.
    R02: DEER ISLAND UNIT. The official October 24, 1990, map of 
this unit does not include a complete depiction of the western end 
of Deer Island due to the limitations of the base map that was used 
at the time. The western portion of the boundary of the unit goes up 
to edge of the U.S. Geological Survey Topographic Quadrangle that it 
was printed

[[Page 71832]]

on, and the unit is assumed to extend to the west to cover all of 
Deer Island. A segment of boundary has been added to the western end 
of the unit to match the location of the boundary as depicted on the 
Congressionally adopted map that first established this unit, dated 
September 30, 1982, to clearly show that all of Deer Island is 
within the unit. This clarification is supported by an assessment of 
the historical CBRS maps for this area as well as the legislative 
history of the CBIA. No modifications were made to the boundaries of 
this unit as a result of changes due to natural forces.
    R03: CAT ISLAND UNIT. The western segment of the unit has been 
modified to account for erosion of the wetlands on the western side 
of Cat Island. The eastern segment of the unit, consisting of Middle 
Spit, South Spit, and associated shoals, has been modified to 
account for erosion of the wetlands, and erosion and migration of 
the spit. Due to the rapid rate of erosion in this area, some of the 
boundaries have been generalized.
