Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 213 / Monday, November 6, 2017 / Notices 17.32(b)(5)) regarding conservation activities for the California tiger salamander. DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR The applicant has applied for a permit for incidental take of the California tiger salamander. The potential take will occur in association with activities necessary for the reconditioning of approximately 2,430 linear feet of the existing 300 Line. The site includes 2.9 acres of suitable upland habitat for the California tiger salamander. The HCP includes avoidance and minimization measures for the covered species and mitigation for unavoidable loss of occupied upland habitat through the purchase of mitigation credits at a Service-approved conservation bank. Our Preliminary Determination The Service has made a preliminary determination that issuance of the incidental take permit is neither a major Federal action that will significantly affect the quality of the human environment within the meaning of section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental Policy Act (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.; NEPA), nor will it individually or cumulatively have more than a negligible effect on the species covered in the HCP. Therefore, the permit qualifies for a categorical exclusion under NEPA.

The SCWA is also currently acting as the administrative agency. Under the MOU, NBWRA continues to explore opportunities to coordinate ‘‘interagency efforts to expand the beneficial use of recycled water in the North Bay Region thereby promoting the conservation of limited surface water and groundwater resources.’’ NBWRA developed the regional North Bay Water Recycling Program for expanding cooperative water reuse within the North San Pablo Bay region. The SCWA, as the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Lead Agency and the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation), as the Lead Agency under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), completed a Draft EIR/EIS for Phase 1 of the North Bay Water Recycling Program Project (Phase 1 Project). SCWA certified the EIR in December 2009. Reclamation released a Final EIS in June 2010 and signed a Record of Decision in January 2011 for the Phase 1 Project. Reclamation provided funding assistance for Phase 1 under of Title XVI of Public Law 102–575, which provides a mechanism for Federal participation and cost-sharing in approved water reuse projects. The Phase 2 Program now proposed by NBWRA seeks to increase the beneficial use of recycled water in the North Bay Region beyond Phase 1. Reclamation may also provide funding assistance under Title XVI of Public Law 102–575. The proposed Phase 2 Program would consist of distribution facilities, treatment capacity improvements, and storage (seasonal and operational) to make between 5,039 and 6,516 acre-feet per year of recycled water available for environmental, agricultural, and municipal reuse, consistent with the California Code of Regulations, Title 22, pertaining to the use of tertiary-treated recycled water.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Recognizing the continuing need for an integrated and regional 
approach to water management, wastewater and potable water agencies in 
the North San Pablo Bay region of California have joined together to 
propose expansion of existing recycled water use in the region. The 
North Bay Water Reuse Authority (NBWRA), established under a Memorandum 
of Understanding (MOU) in August 2005, now comprises 11 wastewater and 
potable water utilities as members, and associate

member agencies--the Las Gallinas Valley Sanitary District, the Novato 
Sanitary District, the Sonoma Valley County Sanitation District, the 
Napa Sanitation District, North Marin Water District, Napa County, 
Marin County, Marin Municipal Water District, the City of American 
Canyon, the City of Petaluma, and Sonoma County Water Agency (SCWA). 
The SCWA is also currently acting as the administrative agency. Under 
the MOU, NBWRA continues to explore opportunities to coordinate 
``interagency efforts to expand the beneficial use of recycled water in 
the North Bay Region thereby promoting the conservation of limited 
surface water and groundwater resources.''
    NBWRA developed the regional North Bay Water Recycling Program for 
expanding cooperative water reuse within the North San Pablo Bay 
region. The SCWA, as the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) 
Lead Agency and the Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation), as the Lead 
Agency under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), completed a 
Draft EIR/EIS for Phase 1 of the North Bay Water Recycling Program 
Project (Phase 1 Project). SCWA certified the EIR in December 2009. 
Reclamation released a Final EIS in June 2010 and signed a Record of 
Decision in January 2011 for the Phase 1 Project. Reclamation provided 
funding assistance for Phase 1 under of Title XVI of Public Law 102-
575, which provides a mechanism for Federal participation and cost-
sharing in approved water reuse projects.
    The Phase 2 Program now proposed by NBWRA seeks to increase the 
beneficial use of recycled water in the North Bay Region beyond Phase 
1. Reclamation may also provide funding assistance under Title XVI of 
Public Law 102-575. The proposed Phase 2 Program would consist of 
distribution facilities, treatment capacity improvements, and storage 
(seasonal and operational) to make between 5,039 and 6,516 acre-feet 
per year of recycled water available for environmental, agricultural, 
and municipal reuse, consistent with the California Code of 
Regulations, Title 22, pertaining to the use of tertiary-treated 
recycled water.
    At this time, there are no known Indian trust assets or 
environmental justice issues associated with the Proposed Action.

Scoping Process

    NBWRA filed a Notice of Preparation (California State Clearinghouse 
no. 2017072051) on July 20, 2017, pursuant to the California 
Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) (P.R.C. section 21092, C.C.R. section 
15082) and held four public scoping meetings in August 2017. To avoid 
duplication with State and local procedures, we plan to use the scoping 
process initiated by NBWRA under CEQA. No additional public scoping 
meetings are planned at this time. However, Reclamation will fully 
consider all input received on this notice of intent. The CEQA Notice 
of Preparation is available at http://www.nbwra.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/NBWRA-Phase-2-NOP.pdf.
