SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The subject permit is requested under the authority of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (MMPA; 16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.), the regulations governing the taking and importing of marine mammals (50 CFR part 216), the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR parts 222–226). The applicant requests a 5-year permit to carry out research and enhancement activities designed to recover the endangered Hawaiian monk seal. Activities would occur along beaches and nearshore waters throughout the Hawaiian Archipelago (Northwestern Hawaiian Islands [NWHI] and main Hawaiian Islands [MHI]) and Johnston Atoll. Research is intended to identify impediments to recovery, inform the design of conservation interventions, and evaluate those measures. Research activities include visual and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:34 Oct 23, 2019 Jkt 250001 photographic monitoring, tagging, pelage bleach/dye marking, health screening, foraging studies, deworming research, necropsies, tissue sampling, import/export of parts, behavioral modification research, vocalization studies and vaccination research. Enhancement activities are designed to improve the survival and reproductive success of individual monk seals, with the intent to improve subpopulation and overall species’ status. Enhancement activities include deworming, translocation, hazing and removal of aggressive adult male seals that harm or kill other seals, disentangling, dehooking, medical treatment, behavioral modification, vaccination, and supplemental feeding of post-release rehabilitated seals. Annual number of individual seals to be taken by take type (annually, unless otherwise specified) could be up to 1,500 for monitoring, 400 for tagging, 1,200 for bleach/dye marking, 150 for health screening, 10 moribund seals by euthanasia, 80 instrumentations, 300 for deworming treatments, 80 for acoustic recording, translocations of nursing pups to birth or foster mothers as warranted (estimated 20 pups), translocations to alleviate risk as warranted (estimated 60 seals), translocations to the NWHI of any age seal in the MHI with unmanageable behavior to alleviate risk to humans and the seals involved (as warranted but likely not to exceed 2 per year), translocation of 20 weaned pups and 30 juvenile/subadults as one-way or as part of two-stage translocation for enhancement, hazing aggressive adult males from conspecifics as warranted (estimated 10 seals), 20 adult male removals (including up to 10 lethal removals over five years), unlimited (i.e., as warranted) disentanglements, dehookings, necropsies, opportunistic samplings and import/exports (including import and export of Mediterranean monk seal samples for research and conservation purposes), 12 seals supplementary fed, 50 seals subject to behavioral modification, 1,500 seals vaccinated, and 200 incidentally harassed. Research on captive monk seals to test and validate field studies is proposed. The applicant also requests the following unintentional lethal takes or mortalities: Two seals annually not to exceed four animals in five years during research, two seals annually not to exceed four weaned pups in five years during enhancement, four juveniles/subadults not to exceed eight animals in five years during enhancement, two adult males not to exceed four across five years during enhancement activities. Up to PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57017 500 spinner dolphins (Stenella longirostris), and 20 bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) may be incidentally harassed annually during research and enhancement activities. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an initial determination has been made that the activities proposed are consistent with the Preferred Alternative in the Final Hawaiian Monk Seal Recovery Actions Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (NMFS 2014), and that issuance of the permit would not have a significant adverse impact on the human environment. Concurrent with the publication of this notice in the Federal Register, NMFS is forwarding copies of the application to the Marine Mammal Commission and its Committee of Scientific Advisors.

AGENCY: The EPA Administrator signed an Order, dated October 3, 2019, denying the petition submitted by Sierra Club (Petitioner) objecting to a proposed Clean Air Act (CAA) title V operating permit issued to Mill Creek Generating Station (Mill Creek) located in Jefferson County, Kentucky. The Order responds to a June 2, 2017, petition requesting that the EPA object to the final operating permit number O–0127–16–V. This permitting action was issued by the Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District (LMAPCD). The Order constitutes a final action on the petition addressed therein. ADDRESSES: Copies of the Order, the petition, and all pertinent information relating thereto are on file at the following location: EPA Region 4; Air and Radiation Division; 61 Forsyth Street SW; Atlanta, Georgia 30303–8960.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CAA affords the EPA a 45-day period to review and, as appropriate, the authority to object to operating permits proposed by state permitting authorities under title V of the CAA, 42 U.S.C. 7661–7661f. Section 505(b)(2) of the CAA and 40 CFR 70.8(d) authorize any person to petition the EPA FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Administrator to object to a title V operating permit within 60 days after the expiration of the EPA’s 45-day review period if the EPA has not objected on its own initiative. Petitions must be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the public comment period provided by the state, unless the petitioner demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise these issues during the comment period or the grounds for the issues arose after this period. Pursuant to sections 307(b) and 505(b)(2) of the CAA, a petition for judicial review of those parts of the Order that deny issues in the petition may be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit within 60 days from the date this notice is published in the Federal Register. Petitioner submitted a petition requesting that the EPA object to the proposed CAA title V operating permit no. O–0127–16–V issued by LMAPCD to Mill Creek. Petitioner claims that this permitting action: Includes an impermissible long-term emission limit that is inadequate to protect the 1-hour sulfur dioxide National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) and, even if it were permissible, the long-term limit is too high to protect the NAAQS. On October 3, 2019, the Administrator issued an Order denying the petition. The Order explains the EPA’s basis for denying the petition. Dated: October 10, 2019. Mary S.
