FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Phyllis Ha, NMFS PIRO, Sustainable Fisheries, 808–725–5174. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NMFS proposes to provide Western Pacific Sustainable Fisheries Funds (SFF) to the Western Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) to support construction of a rock revetment along Garapan Fishing Base, Saipan, CNMI. The Council would in turn, provide funds to the CNMI Department of Lands and Natural Resources (DLNR) to construct the revetment to stabilize 380 feet of shoreline. DLNR would use SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4565 locally mined limestone rock to build the revetment and construction would proceed in three phases in accordance with engineering specifications. Phase I would begin in the area immediately adjacent to and south of the storm drain that is south of Garapan boat ramp and extend south along the coast for approximately 100 feet. Phase II would continue south for another 100 feet. Phase III would continue south for the remaining 180 feet. All together, the rock revetment would extend approximately 380 feet south along the coast, with the final 40 feet consisting of a gradual grade of flanking rocks. The revetment crest will be generally 4 to 5 feet above sea level and cemented for stability. The toe will be set at 4.5 feet below sea level and buried in sand and gravel to sea level. The revetment will extend approximately 15 feet offshore. However, the bottom of the revetment and toe is to be buried in sand, so it will appear to extend between 5 and 8 feet offshore at low tide along most of its length. NMFS has produced a draft EA to evaluate the environmental effects of constructing the rock revetment. The draft EA shows that the construction includes several provisions intended to protect air and water quality and prevent large adverse effects on marine benthic habitats and wildlife, historic resources, and other features of the coastal and marine environment. NMFS is seeking public comments on the draft EA. Dated: January 21, 2022. Ngagne Jafnar Gueye, Acting Director, Office of Sustainable Fisheries, National Marine Fisheries Service.
