Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 201 / Wednesday, October 17, 2018 / Notices authorize the negotiated terms of the transfer of each project or facility. Eligibility for this CE would be determined by Reclamation, based on results of on-site inspections, surveys, and other methods of evaluation and documentation prepared by Reclamation to determine the presence or absence of the exceptions. To determine that a proposed title transfer fits within the CE, Reclamation would review the proposal to determine that all the following apply: 1. The Departmental extraordinary circumstances listed at 43 CFR 46.215 would not be triggered by the title transfer action. 2. The title transfer action would not change: a. Operation and maintenance of the facilities or lands transferred; b. land or water use. 3. The title transfer action would not involve any unresolved issue associated with compliance with interstate compacts and agreements; meeting the Secretary’s Native American trust responsibilities; fulfilling treaty and international agreement obligations. Even for a title transfer action that meets these criteria, Reclamation may, within its discretion, decide to prepare an Environmental Assessment (EA) or an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) instead of applying the CE. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Basis for Establishing the Categorical Exclusion To date, Reclamation has prepared EAs and made findings of no significant impact (FONSI) on each of the eight projects shown below, indicating location and EA/FONSI date. These EAs and FONSIs substantiate Reclamation’s record to demonstrate that no individually or cumulatively significant effects are typically attributable to the eligible types of activities that would be included in the proposed CE. The EA and FONSI documentation for the following projects is available at www.usbr.gov/title: 1. Clear Creek Unit, Central Valley Project, California, 1998. 2. Distribution System to Carpinteria Valley Water District, California, 2000. 3. Distribution System to the Montecito Water District, California, 2001. 4. Robert B. Griffith Water Project, Nevada, 2001. 5. McGee Creek, Oklahoma, 2006. 6. Newlands Project Headquarters and Maintenance Yard Conveyance, Nevada, 2007. 7. Arbuckle (partial), Oklahoma, 2014. 8. Water Distribution System to Goleta Water District, California, 2007 (transfer pending). VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:46 Oct 16, 2018 Jkt 247001 Reclamation has prepared two EISs on title transfer proposals and two EAs for projects that involved more complex actions than those that would meet the eligibility criteria. Reclamation has also prepared 12 EAs and FONSIs on title transfer proposals for which mitigation was applied to reduce impacts to less than significant. Several of these proposals involved issues of concern including sites of interest to tribal communities and adverse effects to historic properties. The full complement of these EAs, FONSIs, and EISs and Reclamation’s knowledge and experience contribute to the body of work Reclamation has used to analyze its title transfer actions and validate its definition of projects for which the proposed CE would be used. Based on the consideration of the types of projects that meet the eligibility and exception criteria above, Reclamation proposes to determine that this category of actions would not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the quality of the human environment. Reclamation invites comments on this proposed CE and will consider all comments received. When Reclamation makes a determination on establishing a new CE, the new language would be incorporated into 516 DM 14 under internal Departmental administrative procedures. At that time, Reclamation intends to employ the same internal Departmental administrative procedures to make routine updates to the DM, including references to regulations and policies, organizational changes, and formatting.
