Download as PDF 8742 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 34 / Monday, February 22, 2016 / Notices SHA advances the recovery of the spotted owl. National Environmental Policy Act Compliance The development of the draft SHA and the proposed issuance of a Permit is a Federal action that triggers the need for compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) (NEPA). We have prepared a draft EA to analyze the impacts of Permit issuance and implementation of the SHA on the human environment in comparison to the no-action alternative. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Public Comments You may submit your comments and materials by one of the methods listed in the ADDRESSES section above. We request data, new information, or suggestions from the public, other concerned governmental agencies, Tribes, the scientific community, industry, or any other interested party on our proposed Federal action. In particular, we request information and comments regarding the following issues: 1. The direct, indirect, and cumulative effects that implementation of the SHA could have on endangered and threatened species; 2. Other reasonable alternatives consistent with the purpose of the proposed SHA as described above, and their associated effects; 3. Measures that would minimize and mitigate potentially adverse effects of the proposed action; 4. Identification of any impacts on the human environment that should have been analyzed in the draft EA pursuant to NEPA; 5. Other plans or projects that might be relevant to this action; 6. The proposed term of the Permit and whether the proposed SHA would provide a net conservation benefit to the spotted owl; and 7. Any other information pertinent to evaluating the effects of the proposed action on the human environment. Public Availability of Comments All comments and materials we receive become part of the public record associated with this action. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personally identifiable information in your comments, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personally identifiable information— may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personally identifiable information from public VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:03 Feb 19, 2016 Jkt 238001 review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. All submissions from organizations or businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses, will be made available for public disclosure in their entirety. Comments and materials we receive, as well as supporting documentation we used in preparing the draft EA, will be available for public inspection by appointment, during normal business hours, at our Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office (see ADDRESSES). Next Steps We will evaluate the draft SHA, associated documents, and any public comments we receive to determine whether the Permit application and the EA meet the requirements of section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA and NEPA, respectively, and their respective implementing regulations. We will also evaluate whether issuance of a Permit would comply with section 7(a)(2) of the ESA by conducting an intra-Service section 7 consultation on the proposed Permit action. If we determine that all requirements are met, we will sign the proposed SHA and issue a Permit under section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA to the applicant, the Weyerhaeuser Company, for incidental take of the northern spotted owl caused by covered activities implemented in accordance with the terms of the Permit and the SHA. We will not make our final decision until after the end of the 30-day public comment period, and we will fully consider all comments and information we receive during the public comment period. Authority We provide this notice pursuant to section 10(c) of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), its implementing regulations (50 CFR 17.22), and the NEPA (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) and its implementing regulations (40 CFR 1506.6).

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: Notice is hereby given of the availability for public review of the draft U.S. Geological Survey report, ‘‘Guidelines for Determining Flood Flow Frequency’’, commonly known as Bulletin 17B. This report was drafted under the auspices of the Hydrologic Frequency Analysis Work Group (HFAWG), which operates under the supervision of the Advisory Committee on Water Information’s (ACWI) Subcommittee on Hydrology (SOH). Public review and comment is sought under the HFAWG Terms of Reference and the USGS peer review plan for the report (URL: http://www.usgs.gov/peer_ review/docs/guidelines_for_ determining_flood-flow_frequency.pdf). The ACWI was established under the authority of the Office of Management and Budget Memorandum 92–01 and the Federal Advisory Committee Act. The purpose of the ACWI is to provide a forum for water-information users and professionals to advise the Federal Government about activities and plans which may improve the effectiveness of meeting the Nation’s water information needs.
