ACTION: Notice of Availability. AGENCY: In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), as amended, and the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA), as amended, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pocatello Field Office, in Pocatello, Idaho, has prepared a Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed Blackrock Land Exchange and by this notice is announcing its availability. DATES: The BLM will not issue a final decision on the proposal for a minimum of 60 days after the date that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) publishes its Notice of Availability in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The BLM is the lead agency for the land exchange that was proposed in 2019. The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (IDEQ), Idaho Governor’s Office of Energy and Mineral Resources (OEMR), EPA, and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) are Cooperating Agencies. In 1994, the J.R. Simplot Company (Simplot) submitted a proposal to acquire 719 acres of Federal land managed by the BLM in exchange for 667 acres of non-Federal land. The Federal lands are adjacent to Simplot’s Don Plant in Power and Bannock Counties, Idaho. The non-Federal lands are located in the Blackrock and Caddy Canyon areas in Bannock County approximately 5 miles east-southeast of Pocatello. In 1998, pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act, the Don Plant facilities and the surrounding area, known as the Eastern Michaud Flats (EMF), were designated as a Superfund Site, including a portion of the proposed Federal lands to be exchanged. The BLM prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) to analyze the proposed land exchange and issued a Decision Record/Finding of No Significant Impact (DR/FONSI) on December 21, 2007. The ShoshoneBannock Tribes litigated the decision in District Court. In May 2011, the Court granted the Tribes’ motion and remanded the DR/FONSI to the BLM, ordering the agency to prepare an EIS. The BLM’s purpose is to evaluate the current land exchange proposal and the need is to respond to the proposal pursuant to FLPMA. The land exchange would result in improved resource management in an area containing crucial mule deer winter range and would secure permanent public access within a popular recreation area. Simplot’s purpose for the proposed land exchange is to implement legally enforceable controls as directed by the EPA and IDEQ. To meet fluoride reduction requirements from a 2016 Consent Order with the IDEQ, Simplot has proposed construction of cooling E:\FR\FM\27MYN1.SGM 27MYN1
