[FR Doc. 2016–31092 Filed 12–23–16; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6717–01–P DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY Federal Energy Regulatory Commission [Docket No. Cp16–498–000; Pf16–4–000] asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Columbia Gas Transmission, LLC; Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review of the B-System Project On September 9, 2016, Columbia Gas Transmission, LLC (Columbia) filed an application in Docket No. CP16–498– 000 requesting a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity pursuant to Sections 7(b) and 7(c) of the Natural Gas Act to abandon, construct, and operate certain natural gas pipeline facilities. The proposed project is known as the BSystem Project (Project), and would modernize and upgrade Columbia’s BSystem pipelines by replacing and abandoning old pipeline as well as constructing new pipeline and appurtenant facilities in Fairfield and Franklin Counties, Ohio. On September 21, 2016, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission or FERC) issued its Notice of Application for the Project. Among other things, that notice alerted agencies issuing federal authorizations of the requirement to complete all necessary reviews and to reach a final decision on a request for a federal authorization within 90 days of the date of issuance of the Commission staff’s Environmental VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:45 Dec 23, 2016 Jkt 241001 Assessment (EA) for the Project. This instant notice identifies the FERC staff’s planned schedule for the completion of the EA for the Project. Schedule for Environmental Review Issuance of EA—March 13, 2017 90-day Federal Authorization Decision Deadline—June 11, 2017 If a schedule change becomes necessary, additional notice will be provided so that the relevant agencies are kept informed of the Project’s progress. Project Description Columbia would abandon in place approximately 17.5 miles of its Line B– 105; replace 14.0 miles of its Line B– 111; replace 0.1 mile of its Line B–121; replace 0.5 mile of its Line B–130; construct 7.6 miles of new pipeline Line K–270 and appurtenant facilities; and modify various point of delivery and point of receipt customer interconnects in Fairfield and Franklin Counties, Ohio. Background On May 6, 2016, the Commission issued a Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Assessment for the Proposed B-System Project and Request for Comments on Environmental Issues (NOI). The NOI was issued during the pre-filing review of the Project in Docket No. PF16–4–000 and was sent to affected landowners; federal, state, and local government agencies; elected officials; environmental and public interest groups; Native American tribes; other interested parties; and local libraries and newspapers. In response to the NOI, the Commission received comments from one U.S. representative, three Ohio state representatives, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Columbia Gas of Ohio, Inc., and four landowners. The primary issues raised by the commentors are pipeline route alternatives, pollinator habitat, endangered species, migratory birds, and methods of pipe abandonment. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is a cooperating agency in the preparation of the EA. Additional Information In order to receive notification of the issuance of the EA and to keep track of all formal issuances and submittals in specific dockets, the Commission offers a free service called eSubscription.

Abstract: The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (Customs) regulations at 19 CFR 12.112 require that an importer desiring to import a pesticide or device into the United States shall, prior to the shipment’s arrival in the United States, submit a Notice of Arrival (NOA) of Pesticides and Devices (EPA Form 3540–1 or its Customs-authorized electronic equivalent) to EPA. Once EPA receives the NOA, EPA will determine the disposition of the shipment upon its arrival in the United States. Upon completing its review, the EPA response is sent to the importer of record or licensed customs broker, who must present the NOA to Customs upon arrival of the shipment at the port of VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:45 Dec 23, 2016 Jkt 241001 entry. This is necessary to ensure that EPA is notified of the arrival of pesticides and pesticidal devices as required under FIFRA section 17(c), and that EPA has the ability to examine such shipments to determine compliance with FIFRA. Customs compares entry documents for the shipment with the NOA and notifies the EPA regional office of any discrepancies. Alternatively, importers may submit NOA information electronically through Customs’ Automated Commercial Environment (ACE). Most of the electronic filings are automatically processed, and an early indication is provided to the filer if the initial reporting requirements have been met and if the shipment can be released upon arrival at the port of entry. For those filings that do not meet the reporting requirements, automatic checks will be performed to notify the filer of errors. For filings that require non-automated checks, EPA staff can review and provide feedback notifications through ACE to the filer on what information is needed that has not been provided. Form Numbers: EPA Form 3540–1. Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this ICR are pesticide importers, which includes many types of business entities ranging from Commercial and Institutional Building Construction (NAICS 236220) to Pesticide and Other Agricultural Chemical Manufacturing (NAICS 325300) and even Public Administration: Executive Offices (NAICS 921110). Other business and institutions that import pesticides include Agriculture, Forestry, Fishing and Hunting (Sector 11), Wholesale Trade, (Sector 42). The majority of responses come from businesses that fall under NAICS code 325300. Respondent’s obligation to respond: mandatory (7 U.S.C. 136o—Section 17 of the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act.) Estimated number of respondents: 38,000 (total). Frequency of response: On occasion. Total estimated burden: 16,340 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $1,006,034 (per year). There is no capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is increase of 1,290 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase reflects EPA’s updating of burden estimates for this collection based upon historical information on the number of NOAs received by EPA. Based upon revised PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 estimates, the number of NOAs received has increased from 35,000 to 38,000. The average burden hours per response will remain unchanged from the previous ICR renewal of 0.43 hours per response. This change is an adjustment.
