70923#70923 Abstract
The Fivemile Foothills Project would safeguard 11 hazardous abandoned mine openings located 15 miles southeast of Stockton in the Oquirrh Mountains. The mines are located on private and BLM lands on the western slope of the mountain range in Tooele County. The project would be conducted under the mandate of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA). Cultural, biological and paleontological surveys and consultations have been conducted for compliance with NEPA, ESA, and NHPA Section 106. The safeguard design minimizes impact to these resources. Landowners are being identified and asked for consent to close abandoned mine openings on their land. Consent is documented in a signed Right of Entry agreement. If the landowner denies consent that will be documented in writing. Both BLM and the USDOI Office of Surface Mining anticipate the action will be Categorically Excluded from NEPA analysis. GIS shapefile available upon request.

70865#70865 Abstract
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Vermilion Cliffs National Monument, Kanab Field Office, and Arizona Strip Field Office has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) to disclose and analyze the environmental consequences of a proposed change in management of the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness. The BLM will decide whether to increase daily visitor access to Coyote Buttes Nmth, where the geologic feature known as The Wave is located, make improvements to trailheads, delineate the route, and construct an administrative site described in Chapter 2 of the EA. The decision to be made could be one of the alternatives in whole or the deciding officials could select a combination of components from any of the alternatives. Management of the on line and walk-in lotteries is not a decision to be made in this EA; that action is considered an "administrative action" ( or a day-to-day activity) that does not require an environmental analysis or a written decision by a responsible official to be accomplished.

70843#70843 Abstract
Taylorsville City, in partnership with UDOT, has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposed construction of a southbound frontage road along Interstate 215 (I-215) between 4100 South and 4700 South in Taylorsville, Utah. UDOT has identified as the Preferred Alternative the alternative that would include a new three-lane southbound frontage road running parallel to I-215 between 4100 South and 4700 South. The alternative would include a new I-215 southbound off-ramp just south of 4100 South to the new frontage road. The frontage road would extend to the signalized intersection at the existing I- 215 southbound off-ramp and 4700 South. In addition, up to two new local access roads would connect the frontage road and 2700 West. The northern access road would connect to the frontage road just south of Dutch Draw near the Village 2 Condominiums and neighboring single-family residences. The southern local access road would connect to the frontage road just south of the former American Express building. The EA describes the transportation and environmental impacts associated with the Preferred Alternative, as well as mitigation measures to reduce the levels of the impacts. The environmental review, consultation, and other actions required by applicable federal environmental laws for this project are being or have been carried out by UDOT pursuant to 23 USC 327 and a Memorandum of Understanding dated January 17, 2017 and executed by FHWA and UDOT. Comments on the Environmental Assessment are due by October 10, 2019 and should be sent to Jacobs Engineering, c/o I-215 Frontage Road EA, at 4246 South Riverboat Road, Suite 210, Taylorsville, UT 84123.

70825#70825 Abstract
The Utah Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands (FFSL) is updating the 2009 comprehensive management plan (CMP) for the state-owned, sovereign land sections of Bear Lake, specifically the sections of the lake in Rich County, Utah. The ordinary high water mark (OHWM) of Bear Lake is generally recognized to be at 5,923.65 feet above mean sea level. The bed of Utah s part of Bear Lake lying below the OHWM is sovereign land. Utah Admin Code R652-2-100 authorizes FFSL to prescribe land management objectives for sovereign lands. The beds of navigable waters within the state are owned by the state but held in trust for the public. FFSL is required to ensure that all uses on, beneath or above the bed of Bear Lake are regulated to protect navigation, fish and wildlife habitat, aquatic beauty, public recreation, and water quality. The updated comprehensive management plan will ensure that FFSL follows clear and consistent guidance on the management of Bear Lake s resources. The Division is seeking input on management issues during this initial scoping period.

70824#70824 Abstract
he Utah Reclamation Mitigation and Conservation Commission (Mitigation Commission), a federal agency, has prepared a draft Environmental Assessment for your review and comment regarding transfer of 1,297 acres of United States-owned lands administered by the Mitigation Commission within the Great Salt Lake Shorelands Preserve to The Nature Conservancy (TNC). The Great Salt Lake Shorelands Preserve, located in Davis County between Antelope Drive and Shepard Lane, protects some of the last remaining wetland habitat along the east shore of the Great Salt Lake (GSL). Properties within the GSL Shorelands Preserve are owned by TNC in Utah and the United States, under the administration of the Mitigation Commission. The properties are intermixed but managed together by TNC as a single ecological unit. The Mitigation Commission is proposing to transfer all of the Federal ownership within the GSL Shorelands Preserve to TNC with deed restrictions, which would protect the property in perpetuity from future development. The Mitigation Commission is also considering whether or not to authorize TNC to subsequently transfer 15.84 acres of the property to the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) that they need for the construction and operation of the West Davis Con-idor. UDOT has proposed a mitigation plan for the impacts of the highway, in a separate Environmental Impact Statement already completed for that project. he draft Environmental Assessment evaluates the impacts that would likely result from the project with a twofold purpose: 1) as Executive Director of the Mitigation Commission, the assessment helps inform me as to the likely effects of my decision whether or not to transfer the Federal properties to TNC; and, 2) it discloses the likely effects of the project to the public and other interested agencies and provides them with an opp01tunity to comment. After I review the analysis and consider public comments, I will issue a Final EA and make a decision whether or not to transfer the Federally-owned prope1ty to TNC and approve TNC to subsequently transfer 15.84 acres of that prope1ty to UDOT.

o The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), is reopening the comment periods on its August 6, 2013, proposed rules to list Graham s beardtongue (Penstemon grahamii) and White River beardtongue (Penstemon scariosus var. albifluvis) as threatened species throughout their ranges and to designate critical habitat for these two plant species under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (Act). The Service is reopening the comment period for 30 days to give all interested parties further opportunity to comment on the proposed rules. Comments previously submitted need not be resubmitted as they are already incorporated into the public record and will be fully considered in the final rule.

Notification of the availability of these documents and the opportunity to object to the project. The Forest Service has decided to implement the proposed action for this project. The proposed action meets the stated purpose and need for the project. The draft decision proposes to revise part of the District Wide Range Improvement Project that was signed last year. The Sowers canyon range improvement part of the project will be revised to include 1.2 miles of additional water line down Sowers Canyon, and 2.8 miles of additional water line up the side canyons and hollows using 1.5-inch pipe, that would be buried with the use of large excavating equipment. In addition, 6 new water troughs would be connected to the water system, along the pipeline route as well as two new water storage tanks in Trapper Canyon. The proposed pipeline would carry water down Sowers Canyon and into nine side canyons where water is limited. Four of these side canyons were not in the original EA.
