Stone, Sand & Gravel REVIEW - September/October 2016 - 20

Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), collectively "the Agencies," are responsible for administering the Act and for developing recovery plans and designating critical habitat for each species. To date, there are more than 1,300 flora and fauna species currently designated as endangered or threatened. Proposed projects or actions occurring on federal lands or requiring a permit or approval by a federal agency2 also require a qualified biologist to assess the project area for suitable habitat for species listed under the Act. If a suitable habitat is found, the Agencies may require a focused survey to determine the presence or probable absence of the species. Findings of any required project assessment and focused survey are reviewed by the Agencies, which then issue a Biological Opinion that includes measures and mitigation actions required to avoid or minimize impacts to the endangered species. This process has the potential to be costly in terms of both time and money, however, knowledge of the process and its requirements may help to minimize TEMA ISENMANN has the solution for your screening and wear needs, "THINK YELLOW!"

Aggregates operators should know that they will be responsible for mitigating direct and indirect impacts on an endangered species. Indirect impacts such as noise, dust, or traffic may also be considered along with the removal of trees. Early coordination with the Agencies and proper guidance by qualified consultants may provide opportunities for both parties to achieve their goals and develop goodwill for future projects. Addressing Where Long-Eared Bats Are and Might Be Take, for example, the previously mentioned northern long-eared bat - also called themyotis septentrionalis. The bat hibernates in caves during the winter and roosts in trees in Spring, Summer and Fall in forests throughout eastern North America3. This bat was listed as federally endangered on Jan. 15, 2015, receiving protection under Section 4(d) of the Act4. The species has experienced a rapid decline in its population over recent years because it is susceptible to white nose syndrome, a fungal disease. In April 2016, the USFWS decided not to designate critical habitat for this bat species because it is not threatened by habitat loss as many other listed species are5. The USFWS decided rather to primarily focus protections around known populations of northern long-eared bats, including maternity colonies and hibernacula, while also restricting tree clearing activities when bats may be rearing their young within areas affected by white nose syndrome. Resources are Available The USFWS has provided an online tool to initiate the consultation process for projects that may impact the bats and to help ensure that businesses comply with the Act. Where project schedules cannot be adjusted, the Agencies may require focused surveys like acoustic monitoring or mist netting to further assess the presence of northern long-eared bats. Though the Act has been in existence since 1973, its implementation is fluid and continues to evolve. Definitions http://www.temaisenmann.com http://www.temaisenmann.com
