Notice of Realty Action: Proposed Non-Competitive (Direct) Sale of Public Land in Santa Barbara County, CA, 60417-60418 [2017-27414]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 243 / Wednesday, December 20, 2017 / Notices incidental take of covered species from groundwater remediation activities, including the avoidance, minimization, and mitigation of impacts to covered species within the 29,927-acre plan area for 50 years. The proposed Hinkley HCP is a conservation plan for two species, the desert tortoise (federally listed as threatened) and the Mohave ground squirrel (not currently listed). The groundwater remediation activities that will be covered by the ITP include groundwater monitoring, freshwater injection into the water table, operation of agricultural units for bioremediation, below- and above-ground treatments, access road construction, structure demolition, and emergency repair of infrastructure. Potential impacts to covered species include disruption of normal behavior by covered activities, movement of animals away from work areas, and injury or death due to construction activities. The Hinkley HCP would provide a comprehensive approach to the protection and management of these species and their habitat within the plan area. The plan area is approximately 29,927 acres, and includes all areas within which PG&E is proposing to conduct groundwater remediation activities. The plan area is common to both alternatives analyzed in the EA, and represents the surface area above the projected maximum spatial extent of contaminated groundwater. The plan area also defines the maximum spatial extent of surface areas within which PG&E may implement groundwater remediation activities, and the maximum spatial extent of potential groundwater effects such as drawdown or accumulation of remediation byproducts. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Alternatives We considered two alternatives in the EA: (1) The Proposed Action as described in the HCP, and (2) the No Action alternative. Two other alternatives, discussed in the HCP as alternatives considered but not utilized, were not carried forward for analysis in the EA. The No Action alternative is based on PG&E’s continued implementation of groundwater remediation activities, consistent with current laws and regulations, in areas where take of listed species would be avoided; under this alternative we would not issue an ITP. Request for Comments Consistent with section 10(c) of the ESA, we invite your submission of written comments, data, or arguments with respect to PG&E’s permit VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:36 Dec 19, 2017 Jkt 244001 application, the Hinkley HCP, and proposed permitting decision.

San Bernardino Meridian, California T. 9 N, R. 33 W, Sec. 20, lot 1. The area described contains 5.93 acres. The BLM determined the land is no longer required for any other Federal purpose. A direct sale of this parcel is in conformance with the 1997 Caliente Resource Management Plan (RMP), as amended by Environmental Assessment DOI–BLM–CA–C060–2012–0021 Decision Record signed on July 2, 2014.

The regulation at 43 CFR 2711.3– 3(a)(5) authorizes the BLM to make direct sale of public lands when a competitive sale is not appropriate and the public interest would be best served by a direct sale. The BLM determined a direct sale will serve important public objectives by disposing of a parcel of isolated public land that the public cannot use or legally access and that the BLM cannot properly manage, and to resolve the inadvertent unauthorized use and occupancy of the land. The BLM prepared a mineral potential report dated October 25, 2011, concluding there are known mineral values in the land offered for sale. Therefore, the BLM will reserve the Federal mineral interest to the United States. Such minerals will be subject to the right to explore, prospect for, mine, and remove under applicable law and regulations. On December 20, 2017, the above described parcel will be segregated from appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, except the sale provisions of the FLPMA. Until completion of the sale or termination of the segregation, the BLM will no longer accept land-use applications affecting the identified public lands, except applications for the amendment of previously filed right-of-way applications or existing authorizations to increase the term of the grants in accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15 and 2886.15. The segregation will terminate upon issuance of a patent, publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the segregation, or 2 years after the date of publication, whichever occurs first, unless extended by the BLM State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1–2(d) prior to the termination date.

The parcel will not be sold until at least 60 days after the date of publication of this Notice in the Federal Register.

Environmental Assessment DOI-BLM-CA-C060-2012-0021 Decision Record 
signed on July 2, 2014. Subsequently, the 2014 Bakersfield RMP replaced 
the Caliente RMP. The parcel was identified as suitable for disposal 
and sale under Section 203 of FLPMA and is limited to the smallest 
acreage necessary to resolve the unauthorized use and occupancy. The 
BLM found no significant biological or cultural resource values on the 
lands and expects no impacts to resource values from this action. An 
Environmental Site Assessment has been performed and is available for 
review. The sale would dispose of an isolated public land parcel that 
is difficult to manage because it is completely surrounded by private 
land and there is no legal access, would

allow the buyer to resolve an inadvertent unauthorized use (43 CFR 
2711.3-3(a)(5)) and would set aside the unused area to meet Santa 
Barbara County's development/permitting requirements for open space. 
There is no public access. Arc Vineyards owns and controls the access 
to this public land parcel across its private land north and adjacent 
to the parcel.
    The regulation at 43 CFR 2711.3-3(a)(5) authorizes the BLM to make 
direct sale of public lands when a competitive sale is not appropriate

determined a direct sale will serve important public objectives by 
disposing of a parcel of isolated public land that the public cannot

resolve the inadvertent unauthorized use and occupancy of the land. The 
BLM prepared a mineral potential report dated October 25, 2011, 
concluding there are known mineral values in the land offered for sale. 
Therefore, the BLM will reserve the Federal mineral interest to the 
United States. Such minerals will be subject to the right to explore, 
prospect for, mine, and remove under applicable law and regulations.
    On December 20, 2017, the above described parcel will be segregated 
from appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining 
laws, except the sale provisions of the FLPMA. Until completion of the 
sale or termination of the segregation, the BLM will no longer accept 
land-use applications affecting the identified public lands, except 
applications for the amendment of previously filed right-of-way 
applications or existing authorizations to increase the term of the

will terminate upon issuance of a patent, publication in the Federal 
Register of a termination of the segregation, or 2 years after the date

State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-2(d) prior to the 
termination date. The BLM will also publish this Notice in the Santa 
Maria Times once a week for 3 consecutive weeks. The parcel will not be 
sold until at least 60 days after the date of publication of this

    Conveyance of the identified public land would be subject to valid 
existing rights of record and the following terms, conditions, and 
reservations:

authority of the United States, Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945).
    2. A reservation of all minerals to the United States, and the

    3. An appropriate indemnification clause protecting the United 
States from claims arising out of the patentee's use, occupancy, or
