AGENCY:

Fish and Wildlife Service, Interior.

ACTION:

Notice of receipt of right-of-way permit application; withdrawal.

SUMMARY:

We, the Fish and Wildlife Service, published a notice requesting public comments on a right-of-way (ROW) permit application we received from Texas Gas Transmission, LLC (Texas Gas), to install a natural gas pipeline under lands within Hillside National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) in Holmes County, MS. The company chose an alternate route that bypasses Hillside NWR and no longer seeks a ROW permit from us, and has withdrawn its application. Therefore, we are not seeking comments on the application.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On November 3, 2008, we published a Federal Register notice (73 FR 65391) announcing the availability of an application for a ROW permit by Texas Gas to install a natural gas pipeline under lands within Hillside NWR. The application was made available for a 30-day review and comment period. Because Texas Gas has abandoned the route that would have crossed the refuge in favor of an alternate route which bypasses the refuge, the review and comment period has been cancelled.
