While this effort supports population of osprey in Illinois it also reduce s potential bird airstrike collisions with in our installations where osprey populations are abundant Early July Naval Weapons Station Yorktown collected 12 nestlings from six dif ferent nests for transport to Illinois. F or the translocation to be successful, the osprey chicks had to be between 5 and 6 weeks of age so they w ould not imprint on humans and w ere robust enough for the long distance translocation. Once they were received in Illinois, the osprey chicks go through the hacking process Hacking is a method of releasing young birds into suitable but unoccupied habitat. Suitable habitat for nesting ospreys has been described as lake or river systems with adequate nest trees or artificial structures and an abundant fish population. Osprey chicks a re placed in an enclosure, called a hack box, at release sites where they become familiar with their new surroundings. The birds are kept in the hack box isolated from human contact and fed daily until they are capable of flight (52 53 days old), at which time the box is opened and

Fl edged birds are monitored daily and feeding continues to ensure they are successful in catching food on their own through time of migration. Through partnerships, Navy continues to support natural resource conservation while enabling the mission and prot ecting our military assets.

GENERAL INTEREST EPA RESEARCH FINDS MODERATE OR SEVER E CORROSION IN MAJORITY OF DIESEL FUEL UST SYSTEMS EPA has released a report on corrosion of internal metal components in underground tanks storing diesel fuel. EPA conducted research on 42 activ ely operating underground tanks storing diesel fuel at facilities across the United States and found that 83 percent (or 35 USTs) exhibited moderate or severe corrosion of metal components inside the tank system. The corrosion may cause metal components inside both steel and fiberglass UST systems to corrode. This can possibly shorten the lifespan or affect the serviceability of components, including limiting the movement of floats on automatic tank gauging systems, operability of mechanical devices desi gned to prevent the chance of overfilling the tank, or ability of valves to shut off flow of product in the event of a release. Corrosion may cause dispenser filters to clog and be replaced more frequently. Corrosion could potentially limit the proper functionality of sheer valves or equipment designed to test for leaks in fuel product lines. EPA recommends UST owners check for corrosion in their tank systems storing diesel fuel, and if they find corrosion, repair or replace equipment as necessary t o ens ure proper functionality. DRAFT MID ATLANTIC REGIONAL ACTION PLAN The agencies making up the MidAtlantic Regional Planning Body, including DOD, are requesting public comment on the draft Mid Atlantic Regional Ocean Action Plan Comments are due by September 6, 2016. The draft Plan has two main goals: (1) h ealthy ocean ecosystems; and (2) sustainable ocean uses. The draft Plan also describes best practices for Federal inter agency coordi nation, as well as coordination among Federal agencies, states, and other stakeholders. The draft Plan is a foundation, not a finished structure, and it will continue to evolve. The draft Plan does not augment or subtract from any entity's existing statu tory or other authorities. NORTH ATLANTIC RIGHT WHALE FIVE YEAR REVIEW The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is initiating a 5year review of the North Atlantic right whale and requests submission of any information on the North Atlantic right whale that has become available since the last 5 year review in 2012. EXTERNAL PEER REVIEW OF DRAFT GUIDELINES FOR HUMAN EXPOSURE ASSESSMENT EPA will convene an independent panel of experts August 15 16, 2016 in Arlington, VA to review the draft document Guidelines for Human Exposure Assessment. The public comment peri od for this document ended on March 22, 2016. The current guidance document for human exposure assessment, Guidelines for Exposure Assessment, was published in 1992, reflecting the state ofthe science in the 1970s and 1980s. Since its publication, the field of exposure science has undergone significant transformation in methods and approaches, which EPA has incorporated into its policies and

PAGE 3

The 1992 guidelines are being updated to reflect the advancement in exposure science and assessment and Agency policies. USGS NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL PRGRAM, 3D ELEVATION PROGRAM USGS is developing the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) initiative to respond to needs for highquality topog raphic data and for a wide range of other three dimensional representations of the Nation's natural and constructed features. The primary goal of 3DEP is to systematically collect enhanced elevation data in the form of high quality light detection and ra nging (lidar) data FEDERAL NEWS Notice: With regard to any regulation or legislation, installation staff is requested to contact their respective component REC with information on mission or installation impacts, questions, or comments. AIR 2010 SULFUR DIOXIDE PRIMARY NATIONAL AMBIENT AIR QUALITY STANDARD EPA has established round 2 initial air quality designations for areas in the U.S. for the 2010 primary sulfur dioxide (SO2) National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS). EPA is designat ing the areas as either nonattainment, unclassifiable/attainment, or unclassifiable, based on whether the areas do not meet the NAAQS or contribute to a nearby area that does not meet the NAAQS; meet the NAAQS; or cannot be classified on the basis of avail able information as meeting or not meeting the NAAQS, respectively. EPA DRAFT GUIDANCE REGIONAL HAZE STATE IMPLEMENTATION PLANS EPA has posted a draft guidance document titled, "Draft Guidance on Progress Tracking Metrics, Long Term Strategies, Reasonable Progress Goals and Other Requirements for Regional Haze State Implementation Plans for the Second Implement ation Period." The purpose of this guidance is to provide background information and guidance to states on how to develop regional haze state implementation plans (SIPs) for the seco nd implementation period (2018 2028). These state regional haze SIPs would be due to be finalized by July 31, 2021. 40 CFR 51.308(f) addresses requ i red SIP content, and requires these SIPs to be revised every ten years. This is a long term program, with 40 CFR 51.308(f) indicating the States are required to make reasonabl e progress toward attaining natural conditions by the year 2064. Comments due 22 August 2016. HAZARDOUS WASTE USER FEES FOR THE ELECTRONIC HAZARDOUS WASTE MANIFEST SYSTEM AND AMENDMENTS TO MANIFEST REGULATIONS 81 FR 4907149110 The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposes its user fee methodology applicable to electronic and paper manifests submitted to the national electronic manifest system (or e Manifest system) that is bein g established by EPA under the Hazardous Waste Electronic Manifest Establishment Act. After the implementation date for the e Manifest system, certain users of the hazardous waste manifest would be required to pay a prescribed fee for each electronic and paper manifest they use and submit to the system in order for EPA to recover its costs of developing and operating the national e Manifest system. The final rule that EPA develops in response to public comments on this action's proposed fee methodology will include the final fee methodology. In addition, EPA will include the initial fee schedule and the implementation date for the e Manifest system in the preamble to the final rule. Comments due 26 September 2016.

The final criterion supersedes EPA's 1999 CWA section 304(a) recommended national acute and chronic aquatic life criteria for selenium. The 2016 recommended c riterion reflects the latest scientific information, which indicates that selenium toxicity to aquatic life is primarily based on organisms consuming selenium contaminated food rather than direct exposure t o selenium dissolved in water. DRAFT AQUATIC LIF E AMBIENT ESTUARINE/MARINE WATER QUALITY CRITERIA FOR COPPER EPA's recommended section 304(a)(1) criteria provide technical information to states in adopting water quality standards (WQS) that ultimately provide a basis for assessing water body health and controlling discharges of pollutants. Under the CWA and its implementing regulations, states are to adopt water quality criteria to protect designated uses (e.g., public water supply, aquatic life, recreational use, or industrial use). EPA's recommended water quality criteria do not substitute for the CWA or regulations, nor are they regulations themselves. EPA's recommended criteria do not impose legally binding requirements. St ates and authorized tribes have the discretion to adopt, where appropriate, other scientifically defensible water quality criteria that differ from these recommendations. Comments due 27 September 2016. ALTERNATIVE TEST PROCEDURES FOR THE ANALYSIS OF DRIN KING WATER CONTAMINANTS EPA is approving 16 additional methods for analyzing drinking water samples.
