Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 56580 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 162 / Monday, August 22, 2016 / Notices edits were made throughout the document for clarification purposes. Added the purpose: ‘‘reduce excessive sediment in surface waters.’’ Filter Strip (Code 393): Practice purposes were revised. Minor editing was made throughout the document to clarify criteria. The noxious or invasive plants language was removed since this is NRCS policy for all matters. Added criteria to remove phosphorus by harvesting above-ground biomass at least once each year. Irrigation Land Leveling (Code 464): This standard was updated to be more readable and formatted according to current standards. A ‘‘Design’’ section was added to the standard to provide current reference information. The ‘‘Operation and Maintenance’’ section was expanded to include more detailed information to the operator to ensure the practice will last longer. Irrigation System, Surface, and Subsurface (Code 443): Very few substantial changes. Clarifying words and grammatical corrections make up the majority of changes. A criteria was added in the ‘‘Application Efficiency and Distribution Uniformity’’ section that directs users to the current technical guidance. Residue and Tillage Management, No Till (Code 329): Practice purposes edited to align with NRCS resource concerns. Added the purpose: ‘‘reduce excessive sediment in surface waters.’’ Made minor edits throughout the document to improve clarity. Removed the 2,000 pounds per acre of residue to increase plant available moisture as this is no longer needed for the erosion prediction tools in use at this time. The needed amount of residue now states 60 percent. Residue and Tillage Management, Reduced Till (Code 345): Added the purpose: ‘‘reduce sheet, rill, and wind erosion, and excessive sediment in surface waters.’’ Made minor edits to improve clarity throughout the document. Added the criteria to document and determine the purpose to reduce sheet, rill, and wind erosion, and excessive sediment in surface waters. Stream Habitat Improvement (Code 395): The definition and purpose are simplified to better focus on habitat. Language was added to better coordinate with other conservation practices. Application of the practice within a watershed context is now required as a specified criterion rather than as a consideration. Revised language as needed to improve readability and clarify intent of criteria. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:13 Aug 19, 2016 Jkt 238001 Signed this 12th day of August 2016, in Washington, DC. Jason A.
