The Proposed Action Alternative is the Project as proposed by Energy Fuels in its plan of operations and the WDEQ–LQD Permit to Mine 381C as approved in July 2015. The BLM Mitigation Alternative would utilize the same conventional mining techniques over the same period as under the Proposed Action Alternative, but modifications to the proposed reclamation plan would be required. In addition, the BLM Mitigation Alternative would identify opportunities to apply hierarchical mitigation strategies for on-site and regional mitigation strategies and identify areas appropriate to apply landscape-level conservation and management actions to achieve resource objectives. The Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS was published in the Federal Register on August 23, 2011 (76 FR 52688). The scoping comments received in response to this notice were used while preparing the Draft EIS to inform during alternative development and to identify issues to be analyzed in the impact analysis. A 45-day public comment period for the Draft EIS was held from January 16–March 2, 2015. The BLM hosted a public meeting in Lander at the Fremont County Library on January 28, 2015. Notable changes to the Draft EIS based on comments received include the following: • Clarified the description of specific aspects of the Proposed Action, including revisions to the WDEQ–LQD Mine Permit 381C, storm-water management, disposal of dewatered waste water under the Wyoming Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (WYPDES), and roles and responsibilities of permitting agencies in allowing off-site versus on-site processing. • Reviewed and revised the analysis of impacts to water resources as a result of the WYPDES permit and storm-water management plans under the Proposed Action Alternative for consistency with Mine Permit 381C. • Added details to the analysis of impacts to Greater Sage-Grouse, particularly in regards to hauling material off site which included analyzing alternative haul routes to the potential off-site processing facility. • Added details to the analysis of other resources such as public health and safety, wetlands, vegetation, soils, water, climate and air quality. Following a 30-day Final EIS availability and review period, a Record of Decision (ROD) will be issued. The VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:17 Aug 25, 2016 Jkt 238001 decision reached in the ROD is subject to appeal to the Interior Board of Land Appeals.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Oh Be Joyful Campground is a destination campground for people visiting in the Gunnison Basin near Crested Butte, Colorado. The BLM’s overall goal is to maintain the area’s recreational experiences, quality social setting and overnight camping that require substantial Federal investment, while protecting natural resources. The BLM is committed to finding the proper balance between public use and the protection of public lands and resources. The campground qualifies as a site wherein visitors can be charged an expanded amenity fee for overnight use, authorized under Section 803(g)(2)(h) of the Recreation Enhancement Act (REA), 16 U.S.C. 6801 et seq. In accordance with the REA and implementing regulations at 43 CFR 2930, visitors would obtain an individual Recreation Use Permit to camp within the Oh Be Joyful Campground. Campers would be required to display a permit stub at each campsite. Permits would expire at the beginning of the subsequent calendar day. The suggested fees for campsites are $10 per night for sites with picnic tables and campfire containment devices (a limit of eight people and up to two tents); $5 per night for overflow sites with campfire containment devices (a limit of eight people and up to two tents); and $30 per night for proposed group campsites (site designed for 9–25 people). A vault toilet is available for all designated campsites and portable toilets are set up for use by the overflow camping areas during the high-use summer months. If potable drinking water is provided, all site fees would increase by $5 per night. As infrastructure improvements are made at the Oh Be Joyful Campground, overnight fees will be charged accordingly for campsites. Free dispersed camping would no longer be available at the Oh Be Joyful Campground and the surrounding area (approximately 100 acres). The BLM’s goals for the Oh Be Joyful Campground fee program are to provide additional facilities through capital improvements; ensure that funding is available to maintain the campground; manage visitor use and provide a quality recreation experience under existing rules and regulations; provide for law enforcement presence; develop additional services (such as expanding interpretive and educational information); and protect resources. The E:\FR\FM\26AUN1.SGM 26AUN1 58964 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 166 / Friday, August 26, 2016 / Notices BLM will use fees collected to make infrastructure improvements and for expenses directly associated with managing the campground. Fees will be charged accordingly for any new campsites added to the Oh Be Joyful Campground and site amenities added to existing campsites. The BLM posted the Oh Be Joyful Campground Business Plan in October 2015, which outlines operational goals of the area and the purpose of the fee program. The Oh Be Joyful Campground Business Plan describes recreation opportunities and fees for camping. Prepared pursuant to the REA and the BLM recreation fee program policy, the Business Plan establishes the rationale for charging recreation fees, establishes a permit process, and establishes the collection of user fees. In accordance with the BLM recreation fee program policy, the Business Plan also outlines how the fees would be used at the campground area. The Business Plan also provides a market analysis of local recreation sites and sets the basis for the fee proposal. Through onsite notifications and local press releases, the BLM notified and involved the public at each stage of the planning process, including the proposal to collect fees. During a field office briefing in spring 2015, the Southwest Colorado Resource Advisory Council informally discussed and verbally expressed their support of charging a fee at the campground.
