ACTION:

Notice of withdrawal applications.

SUMMARY:

The Department of the Navy (DON) has filed an application to extend the current withdrawal of public lands from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, the mineral leasing laws, and the geothermal leasing laws, subject to valid existing rights, for military use of the Naval Air Station (NAS) Fallon, Fallon Range Training Complex (FRTC) in Churchill County, Nevada (withdrawal extension). The DON has also requested the withdrawal of approximately 604,789 additional acres of public lands from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, the mineral leasing laws, and the geothermal leasing laws, subject to valid existing rights (withdrawal expansion). This notice temporarily segregates the 604,789 acres from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, the mineral leasing laws, and the geothermal leasing laws, for 2 years; gives the public an opportunity to comment on the proposed withdrawal extension and withdrawal expansion; and announces the date, time, and location of public meetings on both the extension and the expansion.

DATES:

Comments on the withdrawal applications, including their environmental consequences, should be received on or before December 1, 2016. In addition, public meetings on the withdrawal applications will be held jointly with the DON's public meetings associated with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (NEPA) evaluation of the withdrawals.. The dates and locations of the public meetings are listed in the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION section.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Pursuant to section 3016 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2000, Pub. L. 106-65, the Department of the Navy (DON) has filed an application to extend the current withdrawal of public lands from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, the mineral leasing laws (except for approximately 68,804 acres in the Dixie Valley Training Area which is currently included in the overall withdrawal but not withdrawn from the mineral leasing laws), and the geothermal leasing laws, subject to valid existing rights, for military use of the Naval Air Station (NAS) Fallon, Fallon Range Training Complex (FRTC) in Churchill County, Nevada. The lands are currently withdrawn under the Military Lands Withdrawal Act of 1999, which is part of the NDAA for Fiscal Year 2000, which reserves these lands for defense-related purposes for a period of 20 years. Unless Congress extends the withdrawal, it will expire on November 5, 2021.

In addition to the DON's request that the current withdrawal be extended, the DON filed an application requesting the withdrawal and reservation of additional public lands for military training exercises involving the NAS Fallon at Fallon, Churchill County, Nevada. The application to expand the acreage of lands withdrawn for the Navy's use at Fallon seeks the withdrawal of approximately 604,789 additional acres of public lands from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, the mineral leasing laws, and the geothermal leasing laws, subject to valid existing rights.

In addition, the application seeks to extend the existing withdrawal of 68,804 acres in the Dixie Valley Training Area (DVTA). Pursuant to Section 3011 of the NDAA for Fiscal Year 2000, the FRTC DVTA acres are currently withdrawn from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining and geothermal leasing laws, but not withdrawn from the mineral leasing laws. This application seeks the withdrawal of these 68,804 acres of the DVTA from the mineral leasing laws, subject to valid existing rights. The DON's requested 604,789 expansion acres do not include the 68,804 DVTA acres, as the DVTA acres are already withdrawn from the other public land laws, and reserved for DON use.

As required by section 204(b)(1) of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA), 43 U.S.C. 1714(b)(1), and the BLM regulations at 43 CFR part 2300, the BLM is publishing this Notice of the DON applications. While the BLM and the Department of the Interior (DOI) assist the DON with the processing of withdrawal applications, and the Secretary of the Interior makes a recommendation to Congress on proposed withdrawals, it will be Congress, not the Secretary of the Interior, that will make the final decision on the requested extension and expansion of the existing NAS Fallon withdrawal.

Extention request. This application requests extension of the withdrawal of the following area at the NAS FRTC, Nevada, subject to valid existing rights as described below: The areas B-16, B-17, B-19, B-20, Shoal Site, and the Dixie Valley Training Area aggregate 223,557 acres. Portions of these lands Start Printed Page 60737are unsurveyed and the acres were obtained from protraction diagrams or calculated using Geographic Information System.

Expansion request. In accordance with the Engle Act, (43 U.S.C. 155-158), the DON has filed an application Start Printed Page 60739requesting withdrawal and reservation of additional Federal lands for military training exercises involving the NAS Fallon at Fallon, Churchill County, Nevada (the “expansion area”). The DON requests that the land be withdrawn from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, the mineral leasing laws, and the geothermal leasing laws, subject to valid existing rights, and reserved for use of the DON for testing and training involving air-to-ground weapons delivery, tactical maneuvering, use of electromagnetic spectrum, land warfare maneuver, and air support, as well as other defense-related purposes consistent with these purposes. Pursuant to the Act, the FRTC Dixie Valley Training Area (DVTA) is currently withdrawn from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining and geothermal leasing laws, but not the mineral leasing laws. The DON application also seeks to withdraw the DVTA acres from the mineral leasing laws, subject to valid existing rights. The expansion area consists of the lands and interests in lands described below and adjacent to the exterior boundaries of the NAS FRTC, located in Churchill, Lyon, Mineral, Nye, and Pershing Counties, Nevada.

The areas B-16, B-17, B-20, and the Dixie Valley Training Area aggregate 678,671 acres. Portions of these lands are unsurveyed and the acres obtained from protraction diagram information or calculated using Geographic Information System.

The area described for Dixie Valley Training Area aggregates 2,351.80 acres in Churchill and Mineral Counties.

In the event any non-federally owned lands within the requested withdrawal area return or pass to Federal ownership in the future, they would be subject to the terms and conditions described above.

The purpose of the requested withdrawal extension and expansion at NAS FRTC is to withdraw and reserve the lands for use by the DON for testing and training involving air-to-ground weapons delivery, tactical maneuvering, use of electromagnetic spectrum, land warfare maneuver, and air support, as well as other defense-related purposes consistent with these purposes. National defense requirements are rapidly evolving in response to new and emerging worldwide threat conditions. The Department of Defense has responded to these new and emerging threats with advances in combat platform and weapon technologies, in an effort to maintain a competitive edge in combat operations abroad. The evolution of modern combat systems has placed an increased demand on tactical training ranges to meet combat pre-deployment training requirements. All deploying naval strike aviation units train at the FRTC prior to deployment. Many deploying Naval Special Warfare units also train at FRTC. The introduction of modern and advanced weapons systems already exceeds the DON's ability to train realistically at the FRTC while maintaining public safety. According to the DON, Training protocols are severely limited due to a lack of adequate training space at the FRTC. These limitations diminish the DON's ability to train to realistic deployment methods of existing weapons systems. The DON indicates that extension and expansion of the withdrawn and reserved Federal lands at Fallon are essential to provide a realistic tactical training at the FRTC while continuing to provide for public safety.

Copies of the legal descriptions and the maps depicting the lands that are the subject of the DON's applications are available for public inspection at the following offices:

State Director, BLM Nevada State Office, 1430 Financial Blvd., Reno, Nevada 89502

District Manager, BLM Carson City District Office, 5665 Morgan Mill Road, Carson City, Nevada 89701

For a period until December 1, 2016 all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the withdrawal applications may present their comments in writing to the persons and offices listed in the ADDRESSES section Start Printed Page 60743above. All comments received will be considered before the Secretary of the Interior makes any recommendation for withdrawal to Congress.

Notice is hereby given that public meetings addressing the withdrawal applications will be held jointly with the DON's public meetings associated with NEPA evaluation of the proposed withdrawals. Public meetings will be held at the following locations:

  • Fallon Convention Center, Fallon, NV, October 3, 2016, 3-7 p.m.;
  • Pershing County Community Center, Lovelock, NV, October 4, 2016, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.;
  • Evelyn Mount NE Community Center, Reno, NV, October 4, 2016, 5-7 p.m.;
  • Emma Nevada Town Hall, Austin, NV, October 5, 2016, 5-7 p.m.;
  • Eureka Elementary School, Eureka, NV, October 6, 2016, 5-7 p.m.;
  • Hawthorne Convention Center, Hawthorne, NV, October 7, 2016, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.;
  • Gabbs School Gymnasium Gabbs, NV, October 7, 2016, 5-7 p.m.

The DON will be the lead agency for evaluation of the proposed withdrawal extension and expansion pursuant to NEPA and other applicable environmental and cultural resources authorities, and will be publishing its own scoping and other notices.

Comments, including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the DON and BLM addresses noted above, during regular business hours Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment, including your personal identifying information, may be publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

Subject to valid existing rights, the Federal lands that are the subject of the DON application for expansion of the withdrawal and reservation for DON use at Fallon, and that are described in this Notice, will be segregated from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, the mineral leasing laws, and the geothermal leasing laws. The segregation will continue for a period until [two years from date of publication in Federal Register], unless the applications/proposal are denied or canceled or the withdrawal is approved prior to that date. In addition, subject to valid existing rights, 68,804 acres of land in the DVTA, described in this Notice, will be segregated from operation of the mineral leasing laws for the same two year period, unless the applications/proposal are denied or canceled or the withdrawal is approved within that period. Licenses, permits, cooperative agreements, or discretionary land use authorizations may be allowed during the period of segregation, but only with the approval of the authorized officer and, as appropriate, with the concurrence of DON.

The applications for withdrawal and reservation will be processed in accordance with the regulations at 43 CFR part 2300.
