In addition, TSA follows up via email with owner/operators on specific recommendations made by TSA during the PCSR. When combined with information from other companies across the sector, TSA can identify and develop recommended smart practices and security recommendations for the pipeline mode. This information allows TSA to adapt programs to the changing security threat, while incorporating an understanding of the improvements owners/operators make in their security measures. Without this information, the ability of TSA to perform its security mission would be severely hindered. Portions of PCSR responses that are deemed Sensitive Security Information (SSI) are protected in accordance with procedures meeting the transmission, handling, and storage requirements of SSI set forth in 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) parts 15 and 1520. The annual hour burden for this information collection is estimated to be between 180 and 220 hours based upon 20 PCSR visits per year, each lasting a total of eight hours and the follow-up regarding security recommendations, lasting approximately one to three hours.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, have 
received an application from Canyon Mesa Solar, LLC for a 30-year 
incidental take permit (permit) under the Endangered Species Act of 
1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.). The requested permit 
would authorize take of the threatened Mojave desert tortoise (Gopherus 
agassizii) resulting from the construction, operation, and maintenance 
of a solar photovoltaic facility in Pahrump, Nevada. The permit 
application includes a proposed low-effect habitat conservation plan 
(HCP) that incorporates measures the applicant would implement to 
minimize and mitigate effects of otherwise lawful project activities on 
the desert tortoise. We have prepared a draft low-effect screening form 
supporting our preliminary determination that the proposed action 
qualifies as a categorical exclusion under the National Environmental 
Policy Act (NEPA; 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.). We are accepting comments on 
the permit application, proposed low-effect HCP, and draft NEPA 
compliance documentation.

Background

    Section 9 of the ESA prohibits take of fish and wildlife species 
listed as endangered (16 U.S.C. 1538). Although not listed as 
endangered, the Mojave desert tortoise was listed as threatened on 
April 2, 1990 (55 FR 12178), with an accompanying ESA section 4(d) rule 
(16 U.S.C. 1533(d)), which applies the same take prohibitions for an 
endangered species to the threatened tortoise.
    Under section 10(a)(1)(B) of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1539(a)(1)(B)), we 
may issue permits to authorize take of listed fish and wildlife species 
that is incidental to, and not the purpose of, carrying out an 
otherwise lawful activity. Regulations governing permits for threatened 
species are set forth in title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations 
(CFR) at part 17, section 17.32.
    NEPA (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) requires a detailed environmental 
impact statement (EIS) for major Federal actions that significantly 
affect the quality of the human environment. An agency may use an 
environmental assessment (EA) to inform a decision as to whether to 
complete an EIS, or it can establish categories of actions that 
individually or cumulatively generally do not have significant effects 
on the human environment and do not require either an EA or an EIS. For 
this permit application, the Service has preliminarily determined that 
the issuance of the ITP is not a major Federal action that will 
significantly affect the quality of the human environment, nor will it 
individually or cumulatively have more than a negligible effect on the 
species covered by the HCP, and should therefore be categorically 
excluded from further NEPA analysis as a low-effect HCP (see table 
below).The project occurs on land parcels zoned light industrial or 
mixed use, and the area has been impacted by prior disturbances such as 
a now-abandoned airfield, off-road use, trash dumping, and target 
shooting. Vegetation within the majority of the site (95 acres) will be 
mowed or trimmed, rather than bladed or graded, and site fencing will 
include openings to allow tortoises to enter and exit the facility 
after construction. Photovoltaic (PV) panels will be installed at a 
greater height than the industry standard, and panel spacing will be 
increased to facilitate optimum vegetative growth, which will help to 
maintain future habitat connectivity for wildlife following 
construction.
