Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Army
In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Department of the Army announces a proposed public information collection and seeks public comment on the provisions thereof. Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.
Civil Disturbance Intervention and Disaster Assistance
Document Number: 2019-01666
Type: Rule
Date: 2019-02-08
Agency: Department of Defense, Department of the Air Force
This final rule amends this part by removing the portion which addresses the Department of the Air Force Civil Disturbance Intervention and Disaster Assistance. The current version of this rule was published March 26, 2002. This rule provides internal guidance for the use of Air Force resources and personnel in controlling civil disturbances and in supporting disaster relief operations. Subpart B is unnecessary as it restates existing statute, and there exists DoD-level policy for the execution and oversight of Defense Support of Civil Authorities (DSCA). The Air Force also has internal procedures and standards for the DSCA mission and operations. Therefore, this part can be removed from the CFR.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) in cooperation with the Orange County Water District announces the availability of a Draft Feasibility Report and Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (FR/EIS/EIR) for the Prado Basin Ecosystem Restoration and Water Conservation Integrated Feasibility Study for review and comment.

The study also includes water conservation through re-operation of Prado Dam to capture, retain and release additional water volumes impounded during flood risk management operations. Details of the potential ecosystem restoration measures, water conservation plan and an array of alternatives are identified in the Draft FR/EIS/EIR. Four alternatives are evaluated in the Draft FR/EIS/EIR, including the No Federal Action/ No Project Alternative. Potential environmental impacts associated with these project alternatives are addressed in the Draft FR/EIS/EIR. A Notice of Intent for the EIS/EIR was published on November 16, 2012 (73 FR 72455).
