Notice of Public Meeting for the Northwest Oregon Resource Advisory Council, 62759 [2016-21821]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 176 / Monday, September 12, 2016 / Notices sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES its draft HCP, as part of the application for an ITP, which describes the measures the applicant has agreed to take to avoid, minimize, and mitigate the effects of the incidental take of American burying beetles (Nicrophorus americanus; ABB; covered species) to the maximum extent practicable pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Act. The requested permit would authorize incidental take of the ABB as a result of the construction of two segments along 2.11 miles of the Talawanda to McAlester transmission line in Pittsburg County, OK (Permit Area), as a result of activities associated with the applicant’s construction and maintenance activities (covered activities). Such actions may require disturbance within potential American burying beetle habitat. American Electric Power has proposed to mitigate the impacts to 13.07 acres of suitable habitat for the American burying beetle, including 10.42 acres of temporary impacts, 2.65 acres of permanent cover change (changing of vegetative successional stage, but remaining as suitable ABB habitat), and 0.006 acres of permanent change (changing of ABB habitat from suitable to non-suitable). These habitat acres will be mitigated in perpetuity according to Service-approved mitigation ratios through the purchase of credits at an approved conservation bank for ABB. Additionally, avoidance and minimization measures will be implemented including limiting clearing in temporary work areas, relief of soil compaction, and revegetation of temporary and permanent cover change impacts with native vegetation after construction is completed. Section 9 of the Act and its implementing regulations prohibit ‘‘take’’ of fish and wildlife species listed as threatened or endangered under section 4 of the Act. However, section 10(a) of the Act authorizes us to issue permits to take listed wildlife species where such take is incidental to, and not the purpose of, otherwise lawful activities and where the applicant meets certain statutory requirements.
