Withdrawal of notice of intent to prepare an environmental impact statement.
The Ochoco National Forest is withdrawing the Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Ochoco Wild Horse Herd Management Plan. The Start Printed Page 28005original NOI was published in the Federal Register on June 21, 2017 (82 FR 28301). Upon preliminary evaluation, no potential significant impacts to the human environment are associated with the project. As a result, the Forest is withdrawing its intent to prepare an EIS and is now preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA). All comments previously received regarding this project will be retained and considered in the development of the EA. If it is determined that the project may have significant impacts, the EIS process will be reinitiated and a NOI will be published.
