ACTION: Notice of availability; request for comments. AGENCY: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), have received an application from Metropolitan Water District of Southern California for an incidental take permit under the Endangered Species Act.

ADDRESSES: To obtain documents: You may download a copy of the draft habitat conservation plan and draft low-effect screening form and environmental action statement at http://www.fws.gov/ ventura/, or you may request copies of the documents by U.S. mail (below) or by phone (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Chris Dellith, Fish and Wildlife Biologist, 805–677–3308 (phone), or at the Ventura address in ADDRESSES. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We have received an application for an incidental take permit (ITP) pursuant to section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Endangered Species Act, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). The applicant has developed a draft habitat conservation plan (HCP) for the project that includes measures to mitigate and minimize impacts to seven covered species: the federally endangered unarmored threespine stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus williamsoni), a fish, and the arroyo toad (Anaxyrus californicus); the federally threatened California red-legged frog (Rana draytonii); and the non-listed Santa Ana sucker (Catostomus santaanae), a fish; western spadefoot (Spea hammondii), a toad; two-striped garter snake (Thamnophis hammondii); and western pond turtle (Emys marmorata). (The non-listed Santa Ana sucker (Catostomus santaanae) is federally listed as threatened outside of the area covered in the habitat conservation plan.) The permit would authorize take of any of these species incidental to otherwise lawful activities associated with the Foothill Feeder Inspection and Maintenance Activities HCP. We invite public comment on the application, the draft HCP, draft loweffect screening form, and environmental action statement. PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Background The unarmored threespine stickleback was listed by the Service as endangered on October 13, 1970 (35 FR 16047). The arroyo toad was listed by the Service as endangered on December 16, 1994 (59 FR 64859). The California red-legged frog was listed by the Service as threatened on May 23, 1996 (61 FR 25813). The Santa Ana sucker was listed by the Service as threatened, outside of the area covered by the draft HCP, on April 12, 2000 (65 FR 19686). The western spadefoot is currently under the Service’s review for listing pursuant to the ESA (80 FR 37568). The two-striped garter snake is not federally listed, nor is it being considered for listing pursuant to the ESA at this time. The western pond turtle is currently under the Service’s review for listing pursuant to the ESA (80 FR 19259). Section 9 of the ESA and its implementing regulations prohibit the take of fish or wildlife species listed as endangered or threatened. ‘‘Take’’ is defined under the ESA to include the following activities: ‘‘[T]o harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct’’ (16 U.S.C. 1532); however, under section 10(a)(1)(B) of the ESA, we may issue permits to authorize incidental take of listed species. ‘‘Incidental take’’ is defined by the ESA as take that is incidental to, and not the purpose of, carrying out of an otherwise lawful activity. Regulations governing incidental take permits for threatened and endangered species are in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR 17.32 and 17.22, respectively. Under the ESA, protections for federally listed plants differ from the protections afforded to federally listed animals. Issuance of an incidental take permit also must not jeopardize the existence of federally listed fish, wildlife, or plant species. The permittees would receive assurances under our ‘‘No Surprises’’ regulations ((50 CFR 17.22(b)(5) and 17.32(b)(5)) regarding conservation activities for the unarmored threespine stickleback, arroyo toad, California redlegged frog, Santa Ana sucker, western spadefoot, two-striped garter snake, and western pond turtle. Applicant’s Proposed Activities The applicant has applied for a permit for incidental take of the unarmored threespine stickleback, arroyo toad, California red-legged frog, Santa Ana sucker, western spadefoot, two-striped garter snake, and western pond turtle. Take is likely to occur in association with activities necessary to inspect and maintain the Foothill Feeder water E:\FR\FM\21NON1.SGM 21NON1
