ACTION: Notice; issuance of Letter of Authorization. AGENCY: Pursuant to the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA), as amended, and implementing regulations, NMFS issued a Letter of Authorization (LOA) to Hilcorp Alaska LLC (Hilcorp) to take marine mammals incidental to oil and gas activities in Cook Inlet, Alaska. DATES: Applicable until March 30, 2022. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sara Young, Office of Protected Resources, NMFS, (301) 427–8401. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: Background Sections 101(a)(5)(A) and (D) of the MMPA (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.) direct the Secretary of Commerce (as delegated to NMFS) to allow, upon request, the VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:42 Apr 12, 2021 Jkt 253001 incidental, but not intentional, taking of small numbers of marine mammals by U.S. citizens who engage in a specified activity (other than commercial fishing) within a specified geographical region if certain findings are made and either regulations are issued or, if the taking is limited to harassment, a notice of a proposed authorization is provided to the public for review. An incidental take authorization shall be granted if NMFS finds that the taking will have a negligible impact on the species or stock(s), will not have an unmitigable adverse impact on the availability of the species or stock(s) for subsistence uses (where relevant), and if the permissible methods of taking and requirements pertaining to the mitigation, monitoring and reporting of such takings are set forth. NMFS has defined ‘‘negligible impact’’ in 50 CFR 216.103 as an impact resulting from the specified activity that cannot be reasonably expected to, and is not reasonably likely to, adversely affect the species or stock through effects on annual rates of recruitment or survival. The MMPA states that the term ‘‘take’’ means to harass, hunt, capture, kill or attempt to harass, hunt, capture, or kill any marine mammal. Except with respect to certain activities not pertinent here, the MMPA defines ‘‘harassment’’ as: Any act of pursuit, torment, or annoyance, which (i) has the potential to injure a marine mammal or marine mammal stock in the wild (Level A harassment); or (ii) has the potential to disturb a marine mammal or marine mammal stock in the wild by causing disruption of behavioral patterns, including, but not limited to, migration, breathing, nursing, breeding, feeding, or sheltering (Level B harassment). Summary NMFS issued regulations governing the take of 11 species of marine mammal, by Level A and Level B harassment, incidental to Hilcorp’s oil and gas activities on July 31, 2019 (84 FR 37442). These regulations include mitigation, monitoring, and reporting requirements for the incidental take of marine mammals during the specified activities. As further detailed in the regulations (50 CFR 217.167), adaptive management measures allow NMFS to modify or renew LOAs as necessary if doing so creates a reasonable likelihood of more effective mitigation and monitoring. NMFS issued the first LOA to Hilcorp under these regulations on July 31, 2019. NMFS published a Federal Register notice seeking public comment on its proposal to modify the Year 1 LOA issued to Hilcorp on August PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16, 2019 (84 FR 41957) and published a notice of modification on October 4, 2019 (84 FR 53119). The Year 1 LOA expired on July 30, 2020. To better align with the open water season, Hilcorp applied for their Year 2 LOA with a start date of April 1, 2020, rather than waiting until the expiration of their Year 1 LOA in July 2020. NMFS reviewed the application and issued the Year 2 LOA on April 22, 2020. Hilcorp submitted an application for their Year 3 LOA on January 2021 and the LOA was subsequently issued on March 30, 2021. Authorization NMFS has issued a LOA (available at https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/action/ incidental-take-authorization-hilcorpalaska-llc-oil-and-gas-activities-cookinlet-alaska) to Hilcorp Alaska LLC for the potential harassment of small numbers of four marine mammal species incidental to oil and gas activities in Cook Inlet, Alaska, provided the mitigation, monitoring and reporting requirements of the rulemaking are incorporated.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 2018 when the construction for the F–35 Live Ordnance Loading Area (LOLA) project began, it was discovered the new perimeter road associated with the Air Force’s project was going to transect Clark County property. On the other hand, Clark County Commissioner Kirkpatrick had expressed a desire to expand Cary Avenue as a means of alleviating traffic on other major thoroughfares by transecting Nellis AFB property on the south side of the base. Consequently, the Department of the Air Force, the Clark County Public Works Department, and Commissioner Kirkpatrick have agreed to exchange land of equal value vice granting one or more easements. The Government is entering into this Agreement pursuant to the authority contained in Title 10, United States Code, Section 2869, Exchange of Property at Military Installations. Clark County, NV, in conjunction with Clark County Regional Flood Control District, is requesting ∼12 acres of Nellis AFB property for the Carey Road Alignment Project, which will widen the road to a four-lane road.
