We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, have received an application from James Mueller, District Manager of the San Lorenzo Valley Water District, for a 5-year incidental take permit (ITP) under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). The application addresses the potential for ``take'' of the federally endangered Mount Hermon June Beetle and Zayante band-winged grasshopper, and the federally threatened California red-legged frog, which is likely to occur incidental to the construction and maintenance of two water pump stations and an intertie pipeline connection on three parcels in central Santa Cruz County, California. We invite comments from the public on the application package, which includes a low-effect habitat conservation plan (HCP) for the three species for the Scotts Valley Multi-Agency Regional Intertie Project in Santa Cruz County, California.
