Proclaiming Certain Lands as Reservation for the Confederated Tribes of the Chehalis Reservation, 55395-55396 [2018-24174]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 214 / Monday, November 5, 2018 / Notices the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) a revised draft environmental impact statement (RDEIS) addressing an amendment to the 1997 WDNR State Lands Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) to cover the implementation of a Long-Term Conservation Strategy (LTCS) for the marbled murrelet. The marbled murrelet (Brachyamphus marmoratus), a seabird, was listed as threatened in 1992 under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). The RDEIS also addresses an amendment to the ESA section 10 incidental take permit (ITP) for take of marbled murrelet resulting from the implementation of the LTCS. The RDEIS is intended to satisfy the requirements of both the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA; 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) and the Washington State Environmental Policy Act. If approved, the proposed LTCS will replace an interim conservation strategy for the marbled murrelet, which is currently being implemented under the WDNR HCP. The RDEIS analyzes seven action alternatives and a no action alternative. If approved, the amended ITP would authorize incidental take of the marbled murrelet that would occur as a result of implementation of the LTCS over the remaining 50-year term of the WDNR HCP. The scope of the proposed amendment to the WDNR HCP and ITP, and thus of the RDEIS, is exclusively limited to consideration of the LTCS for the marbled murrelet. A Federal Register notice of availability (83 FR 45458) for the RDEIS was published for a 60-day comment period on September 7, 2018. In addition to this notice, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is also publishing a notice announcing the extension of the public comment period on the RDEIS, as required under section 309 of the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. 7401 et seq.). The original public comment period for this RDEIS is scheduled to close on November 6, 2018. In order to give the public additional time to review and comment on the RDEIS addressing an amendment to the 1997 WDNR State Lands HCP, the FWS is extending the public comment period. Comments previously submitted on the RDEIS need not be resubmitted, as they will be fully considered in preparing the final RDEIS addressing an amendment to the 1997 WDNR State Lands HCP. For background information regarding the original EIS and HCP, the interim conservation strategy for the marbled murrelet, and next steps in this process, VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:38 Nov 02, 2018 Jkt 247001 see the September 7, 2018, Federal Register notice (83 FR 45458). Public Comments You may submit your comments and materials by one of the methods listed in ADDRESSES. We specifically request information and comments on the following: 1. Biological information on the marbled murrelet in the terrestrial and marine environments; 2. Cumulative effects on the environment that might influence the status of the marbled murrelet in the ESA listed range; 3. Resiliency of the alternatives in providing current and future marbled murrelet habitat in relation to climate change and future natural disturbance events such as fire and windstorms; 4. Adequacy of the distribution of marbled murrelet habitat to provide conservation over the remaining term of the HCP; 5. Other aspects of the human environment not already identified in the DEIS that may be affected, pursuant to NEPA regulations in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 40 CFR 1506.6. 6. Other information and documents related to the RDEIS that WDNR has posted on their website at https:// www.dnr.wa.gov/long-termconservation-strategy-marbled-murrelet. Comments received from the 2016 DEIS public comment period were used to inform the RDEIS. Comments received on the DEIS and this RDEIS will be responded to in the FEIS. If you submitted comments during the comment period for the DEIS, you do not need to resubmit those comments.
