SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Why do we conduct 5-year status reviews? Under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act; 16 U.S.C. 1531, et seq.), we maintain lists of endangered and threatened wildlife and plant species (referred to as the List) in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR 17.11 (for wildlife) and 17.12 (for plants). Section 4(c)(2) of the Act requires us to review each listed species’ status at least once every 5 years. For additional information about 5-year status reviews, refer to our factsheet at http://www.fws.gov/ endangered/what-we-do/recoveryoverview.html. What information do we consider in our review? A 5-year status review considers all new information available at the time of the review. In conducting these reviews, we consider the best scientific and commercial data that have become available since the listing determination or most recent status reviews, such as: A. Species biology, including but not limited to population trends, distribution, abundance, demographics, and genetics; B. Habitat conditions, including but not limited to amount, distribution, and suitability; C. Conservation measures that have been implemented that benefit the species; D. Threat status and trends in relation to the five listing factors (as defined in section 4(a)(1) of the Act); and E. Other new information, data, or corrections, including but not limited to taxonomic or nomenclatural changes, identification of erroneous information contained in the List, and improved analytical methods. Any new information will be considered during the 5-year status review and will also be useful in evaluating the ongoing recovery programs for these species. Which species are under review? This notice announces our active review of 77 species, including 2 mammals, 6 birds, 7 insects, and 62 plants, as listed in the table below.

Proposed Federal Action Environmental Impact Statement for the Yahthumb Solar Project on the Moapa River Indian Reservation, Clark County, Nevada Bureau of Indian Affairs, Interior. ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: The Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), as lead agency in cooperation with the Moapa Band of Paiute Indians (Moapa Band), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and other agencies, intend to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that will evaluate the development of the Yahthumb Solar Project (Project) on the Moapa River Indian Reservation (Reservation). This notice announces the beginning of the scoping process to solicit public comments and identify potential issues related to the EIS. The BIA requests comments concerning the scope of the analysis, and identification of relevant information, studies, and analyses. It also announces that two public scoping meetings will be held virtually to identify potential issues, alternatives, and mitigation to be considered in the EIS. DATES: All comments must be received July 26, 2021. The draft EIS is scheduled for December 2021 and the final EIS is scheduled for May 2022 with a Record of Decision in June 2022. The dates of the public scoping meetings will be included in notices to be posted in the lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:38 Jun 24, 2021 Las Vegas Sun, Las Vegas ReviewJournal, and Moapa Valley Progress 15 days before the meetings. ADDRESSES: Send written comments to Mr. Chip Lewis, BIA Western Regional Office, 2600 North Central Avenue, 4th Floor Mailroom, Phoenix, Arizona 85004.

Please see the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section of this notice for directions on submitting comments. The public meetings can be joined online through the Projects website at www.YahthumbSolarProjectEIS.com. Jkt 253001 A. Purpose and Need for the Proposed Action The proposed Federal action, taken under 25 U.S.C. 415, is BIA’s approval of the solar energy ground lease and related agreements entered into by the Moapa Band with Yahthumb Solar Project, LLC (Applicant). The agreements provide for construction, operation and maintenance (O&M), and decommissioning of a 138-megawatt (MW) alternating current (MWac) solar photovoltaic (PV) electricity generation facility located entirely on the Reservation and specifically on lands held in trust by the United States for the Moapa Band. In addition, a transmission generation interconnection (gen-tie) line would be constructed to interconnect the Project to the regional electrical grid. Portions of this line would cross lands managed by BLM within a designated utility corridor on the Reservation and BLM land. The BIA and BLM would approve rights-of-way (ROWs) authorizing the construction and operation of the transmission line. The purposes of the proposed Project are, among other things, to: (1) Help to provide a long-term, diverse, and viable economic revenue base and job opportunities for the Moapa Band; (2) meet the terms of the existing Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) for the output of the Project; (3) help Nevada and neighboring States to meet their State renewable energy needs; and (4) PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 allow the Moapa Band, in partnership with the Applicant, to optimize the use of the lease site while maximizing the potential economic benefit to the Tribe. B. Preliminary Proposed Action and Alternatives The Applicant plans to develop the Yahthumb Solar Project on the Reservation in Clark County, Nevada. The solar project would generate 138 MWs of solar energy generation, using PV technology, and would incorporate a battery energy storage system (BESS). The proposed Yahthumb solar generating facility would be constructed on up to 1,400 acres within a lease study area of approximately 1,695 acres of Tribal trust land on the Reservation set aside by the Moapa Band for the Project. The solar field and associated facilities would be in parts of Sections 29, 30, 31, and 32 in Township 15 South, Range 65 East; Section 1 in Township 16 South, Range 64 East; and Section 6 in Township 16 South, Range 65, East Mount Diablo Base Meridian. Major components of the solar site would include multiple blocks of solar PV panels mounted on single-axis tracking systems, associated inverter and transformer equipment, collection lines, BESS, a Project substation, and O&M facilities. Construction of the Project is expected to take approximately 14 months. A gen-tie line approximately 8.5 to 10 miles long would interconnect the Project to the regional electrical grid at the existing Reid-Gardner Substation. This line would be built on the Reservation within a designated utility corridor that is managed by BLM, on BLM-managed Federal land, and on private land near the existing substation. Primary access to the Yahthumb site would be provided via Interstate-15 to the existing Ute Road on the Reservation that would be upgraded as needed. Secondary access would be provided via an existing road within the designated utility corridor that would also be upgraded as needed. The water supply for the Project would be leased from the Moapa Band, drawn from the Band’s existing water rights, and delivered to the site via a temporary water pipeline or by truck. Water will be needed during construction for dust control and a minimal amount will be needed during operations for administrative and sanitary water use and panel washings. The Applicant is expected to operate the energy facility for up to 56 and a half years under the terms of the solar lease with the Moapa Band. The Project is being built to meet the power purchase agreement (PPA) for its output. E:\FR\FM\25JNN1.SGM 25JNN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Why do we conduct 5-year status reviews?

    Under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act; 16 
U.S.C. 1531, et seq.), we maintain lists of endangered and threatened 
wildlife and plant species (referred to as the List) in the Code of 
Federal Regulations (CFR) at 50 CFR 17.11 (for wildlife) and 17.12 (for 
plants). Section 4(c)(2) of the Act requires us to review each listed 
species' status at least once every 5 years. For additional information 
about 5-year status reviews, refer to our factsheet at http://www.fws.gov/endangered/what-we-do/recovery-overview.html.

What information do we consider in our review?

    A 5-year status review considers all new information available at 
the time of the review. In conducting these reviews, we consider the 
best scientific and commercial data that have become available since 
the listing determination or most recent status reviews, such as:
    A. Species biology, including but not limited to population trends, 
distribution, abundance, demographics, and genetics;
    B. Habitat conditions, including but not limited to amount, 
distribution, and suitability;
    C. Conservation measures that have been implemented that benefit 
the species;
    D. Threat status and trends in relation to the five listing factors 
(as defined in section 4(a)(1) of the Act); and
    E. Other new information, data, or corrections, including but not 
limited to taxonomic or nomenclatural changes, identification of 
erroneous information contained in the List, and improved analytical 
methods.
    Any new information will be considered during the 5-year status 
review and will also be useful in evaluating the ongoing recovery 
programs for these species.
