         For those of you conducting construction or industrial storm water
         inspections in Culebra, based on this email from the Fish and Wildlife
         Service, Boqueron Field Office, Facilities in Culebra Puerto Rico
         submitting Notices of Intent claiming that there are "No federally
         listed threatened or endangered species or their designated critical
         habitat in the project area" under Criterion A, are unacceptable because
         the waters around Culebra are listed as critical habitat.

         Murray, a letter should be going out next week. We had provided a
         consultant for the project with technical assistance regarding T&E
         species
         back in 2005. There are none reported for the project area. We did
         express concern with erosion and sedimentation affecting the waters
         around
         Crash Boat and had our doubts about the sedimentation pond they were
         proposing.

         Also we are a bit concerned with the NPDES general permit, for Culebra
         Is.
         there should not be any Criterion A compliance since the waters around
         Culebra are designated Critical Habitat by NOAA. Also NOAA is in the
         process of working with its endangered coral listing, once the areas of
         high concentration are designated, then Criterion A would not apply to
         them
         either.

         Felix:

         Happy New Year:

         I am writing a letter to F&R Construction for Storm Water Pollution
         Prevention Plan deficiencies. The project is near Crashboat beach, but
         up the hill a little bit. I wanted to know if there could be some
         problems with turtle nesting, etc. in the area.

         Let me know.
