Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 162 / Thursday, August 20, 2020 / Notices No. 10–4536, centralized in MDL 2179, In re: Oil Spill by the Oil Rig ‘‘Deepwater Horizon’’ in the Gulf of Mexico, on April 20, 2010 (E.D. La.) (http://www.justice.gov/enrd/deepwaterhorizon). Pursuant to the Consent Decree, restoration projects in the Louisiana Restoration Area are chosen and managed by the LA TIG. The LA TIG is composed of the following Trustees: State of Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, Oil Spill Coordinator’s Office, Departments of Environmental Quality, Wildlife and Fisheries, and Natural Resources; DOI; NOAA; EPA; and USDA. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Background The Final PDARP/PEIS provides for TIGs to propose restoration projects using a planning process that involves phasing restoration projects across multiple restoration plans. A TIG may propose funding a planning phase (e.g., initial engineering and design (E&D)) in a restoration plan for a conceptual project (phase 1). This allows the TIG to develop information needed to fully consider a subsequent implementation phase of the project in a future restoration plan (phase 2). In the Draft RP/EA #7, the LA TIG considers alternatives to fund E&D for conceptual projects and also to fund projects for implementation. Overview of the LA TIG Draft RP/EA #7 The Draft RP/EA #7 provides the LA TIG’s analysis of alternatives under the ‘‘Wetlands, Coastal, and Nearshore Habitats’’ restoration type and the ‘‘Birds’’ restoration type. Under the ‘‘Wetlands, Coastal and Nearshore Habitats’’ restoration type, the preferred alternatives include a conceptual project that would undergo E&D if selected, and two alternatives that are analyzed for full implementation if selected. These alternatives are: (1) Bird’s Foot Delta Hydrologic Restoration project (E&D), (2) Terrebonne Basin Ridge and Marsh Creation Project: Bayou Terrebonne Increment (Terrebonne project) (full implementation) and (3) Grande Cheniere Ridge Marsh Creation (full implementation). The Terrebonne project was approved and funded for E&D in the 2017 Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group Final Restoration Plan #1: Restoration of Wetlands, Coastal, and Nearshore Habitats; Habitat Projects on Federally Managed Lands; and Birds. The other, Bayou Grand Cheniere Ridge and Marsh Creation project underwent E&D through a separate funding process. Both projects have reached a stage in their E&D where sufficient information VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:01 Aug 19, 2020 Jkt 250001 has been developed for analysis under NEPA and the OPA NRDA regulations. Under the ‘‘Birds’’ restoration type, the LA TIG proposes conceptual projects that would undergo E&D if selected for funding. The preferred ‘‘Birds’’ alternatives are (1) Isle au Pitre Restoration, and (2) Terrebonne Houma Navigation Canal Island Restoration. Next Steps As described above in DATES, the Trustees will host a public webinar to facilitate the public review and comment process. After the public comment period ends, the Trustees will consider and address the comments received before issuing a final RP/EA #7.
