Download as PDF khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES 35758 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 127 / Wednesday, July 7, 2021 / Notices underwater cultural resources. This area would include up to 1,786 square miles of lake waters and bottomlands adjacent to Jefferson, Wayne, Oswego, Cayuga, and St. Lawrence counties in the state of New York. The proposed area contains 64 known shipwrecks and one aircraft representing events spanning more than 200 years of our nation’s history. Based on historical records, an additional 20 shipwrecks and three aircraft may be located there. NOAA proposes to designate the area as a national marine sanctuary to protect these significant underwater cultural resources through a regulatory and nonregulatory framework; document, further locate, and monitor these resources; provide interpretation of their cultural, historical, and educational value to the public; promote responsible use of these resources for their recreational value; and promote recreation, tourism, and economic development opportunities in the region. NOAA would co-manage the sanctuary with the state of New York. On January 17, 2017, pursuant to section 304 of the NMSA and the sanctuary nomination process (79 FR 33851), leaders of four counties (Oswego, Jefferson, Cayuga, and Wayne) and the City of Oswego, with support from Governor Andrew Cuomo, submitted a nomination asking NOAA to consider designating a national marine sanctuary in eastern Lake Ontario waters to protect, and increase awareness of, a nationally significant collection of shipwrecks. NOAA accepted the nomination March 21, 2017 and initiated the sanctuary designation process by issuing a Notice of Intent on April 17, 2019 to conduct scoping and prepare a DEIS (84 FR 16004). Scoping included a 105-day public period during which NOAA solicited public comments related to the scale and scope of the proposed sanctuary. In addition, NOAA hosted four public meetings in June 2019 and accepted comments through a webbased portal and by traditional mail until July 31, 2019. During the scoping period, 82 individuals provided written input. About 165 people attended the four scoping meetings, with 28 people providing oral comments. In February 2020, NOAA established a Sanctuary Advisory Council to bring members of the local community together to provide advice to NOAA and serve as a liaison with the nominating community throughout the designation process. II. NOAA’s Proposed Action In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA, 42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) and the NMSA (16 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:44 Jul 06, 2021 Jkt 253001 U.S.C. 1434), NOAA has prepared a DEIS that considers three alternatives for the proposed national marine sanctuary. This DEIS analyzes and summarizes the environmental consequences of the proposed action and alternatives. The alternatives include proposed sanctuary boundaries, proposed regulatory concepts, and a draft sanctuary management plan to support the management and protection of sanctuary resources. NOAA has not selected a preferred alternative. In accordance with section 304(a) of the NMSA, the DEIS also serves as a resource assessment that documents present and potential uses of the area. The draft management plan outlines a series of goals and strategies in the areas of research and monitoring, education and outreach, tourism and economic development, sanctuary resource protection, and sanctuary operations. NOAA is seeking public comment on the DEIS and draft management plan, which are available at https:// sanctuaries.noaa.gov/lake-ontario or may be obtained by contacting the individual listed under the heading FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. While members of the public can comment on any aspect of the DEIS and draft management plan, NOAA requests specific comment on: Whether NOAA should move forward with the No Action Alternative, Alternative 1, or Alternative 2 for the rest of the designation process; the regulatory concepts NOAA proposes to use to create regulations for the sanctuary in the next phase of the process; the proposed goals, strategies, and activities for managing the sanctuary that are outlined in the draft management plan; and ideas for a sanctuary name that reflects the special significance of the area. In addition, as part of its compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (16 U.S.C. 470f), and its implementing regulations (36 CFR 800), NOAA is seeking public comment under 800.14(b)(2)(ii) of the National Historic Preservation Act to inform its development of a Programmatic Agreement with the state of New York to provide a process for consideration of future undertakings that may result from management of the proposed sanctuary, associated field operations, and other routine activities, if the sanctuary is designated. Following public comment on the DEIS and draft management plan, NOAA will prepare and release for public comment draft regulations for the proposed sanctuary. At that time, a detailed discussion of the regulatory text will be included in the notice of proposed rulemaking and PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 published in the Federal Register for public comment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title; Associated Form; and OMB Number: Service Academy Gender Relations Survey; OMB Control Number 0704–SAGR. Needs and Uses: The legal requirements for the Service Academy Gender Relations (SAGR) surveys can be found in the following: • 10 U.S.C. 4361, as amended by John Warner National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007, Sec. 532. • 10 U.S.C. 481. • Department of Defense Instruction (DoDI) 6495.02 and 6495.03. These legal requirements mandate that the SAGR solicit information relating to sexual assault, sexual harassment, and gender discrimination in the MSAs, as well as the climate at the MSAs and social perspectives. MSAs include the U.S. Military Academy (USMA), the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), and U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA). The requirements state that the assessment cycle consists of surveys and focus groups during alternate years. They also give the Department authority to conduct such surveys under the guidance of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness (USD(P&R)). The U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA), the only Federal Military Academy within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), is not required to participate in the assessments codified by U.S.C. Section 10. However, USCGA officials requested the Coast Guard be included, beginning in 2008, in order to evaluate and improve their programs addressing sexual assault and sexual harassment. Similarly, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA), under the Department of Transportation (DOT), requested their inclusion beginning in 2012. USCGA and USMMA will continue to participate in the assessments. Surveys of USCGA and USMMA are not covered under this DoD licensure and will not be mentioned further. The Office of People Analytics (OPA) administers both web-based and paper-and-pen surveys to support the personnel information needs of the USD(P&R). The SAGR survey expands a series of surveys that began in 2004 with the DoD Inspector General’s first survey, subsequently transferred to OPA. OPA conducted the SAGR survey at the MSAs in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, E:\FR\FM\07JYN1.SGM 07JYN1
