The Applicant, White Water Springs, L.L.C., has applied to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) for an incidental take permit pursuant to section 10(a) of the Endangered Species Act (Act).

The Service has prepared the Environmental Assessment/Habitat Conservation Plan (EA/HCP) for the incidental take application. A determination of jeopardy or non-jeopardy to the species and a decision pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) will not be made until at least 60 days from the date of publication of this notice.

Section 9 of the Act prohibits the ‘‘taking’’ of endangered species such as the goldencheeked warbler. However, the Service, under limited circumstances, may issue permits to take endangered wildlife species incidental to, and not the purpose of, otherwise lawful activities. Regulations governing permits for endangered species are at 50 CFR 17.22. Applicant: White Water Springs, L.L.C., plans to construct a residential development on 1,758-acres of the White Water Springs property, Burnet County, Texas. This action would adversely affect 369.1 acres (148.8 hectares) of oak-juniper woodland resulting in take of the golden-cheeked warbler. The Applicant proposes to compensate for this incidental take of the golden-cheeked warbler by contributing $300,000 to a conservation entity for use in the purchase and preservation of golden-cheeked warbler habitat within the acquisition area of the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge and by preserving 20.7 acres (8.3 hectares) of habitat on-site which will be managed in perpetuity for the benefit of the golden-cheeked warbler.

September 26, 2010 Mr. Clayton Napier US Fish & Wildlife Service Field Office 10711 Burnet Road, Suite 200 Austin, Texas 78758 Re: Permit #TE‐110131‐0 Whitewater Springs (Preserve at Balcones Canyonlands) – Bertram, Texas Dear Mr. Napier: Land Strategies, Inc. (LSI) took over project management of the Whitewater Springs subdivision (aka, Preserve at Balcones Canyonlands) in June 2010. On behalf of the landowner (Montvale), respectfully submit the following information to update you on the progress we have made in 2010 with respect to the Whitewater Springs subdivision, located in Burnet County, south of Bertram, Texas. This letter is meant to serve as the required annual written report for the subdivision. In Section 2 of the subdivision, barricades were installed at the entrances to Canyon Ridge Court and Suncrest Trail, to bar any access to these cul‐de‐sacs, as these roadways (as approved by Burnet County) have steep grades with no protection at the terminus of the cul‐de‐sacs at the steep drop‐offs. Those barricades will remain at the entrances to these cul‐de‐sacs until further improvements are made to the roadways, as may be necessary, in order to address erosion and safety concerns. We are currently negotiating a contract with the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) regarding a public versus private water supply system for the subdivision. It is anticipated that the LCRA Board of Directors will review the elements of the proposed contract and vote to approve (or approve with amendments or comments) at their November 2010 board meeting. We have made good progress with LCRA in this respect, and anticipate approval of the contract in November. In conjunction with this LCRA contract, we are working with a water engineer and surveyor to locate various test water well sites through Sections 2 and 5 of the subdivision. We have met with the Central Texas Groundwater Conservation District and Burnet County to determine any and all regulatory issues associated with drilling test water wells, including processes, timing, and required permits, if any. We will continue forward to drill these test water wells, to ensure there is adequate water capacity for the Montvale lots within the subdivision. We are also working in conjunction with Montvale’s attorney to amend the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CCRs) of Whitewater Springs Subdivision (Section 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5); these amendments are being coordinated with the Whitewater Springs Property Owners Association (POA), and we are making good progress in this regard. The amendments are in response to various changes desired by the POA to the existing CCRs, and will also include information based on our negotiations with LCRA regarding water service for the subdivision.
In order to stop the spread of oak wilt throughout the subdivision, at the end of September 2010, two (2) trenches were dug along Murphy Drive – one trench was dug along Lots 609‐611, and one trench was dug around Lots 620 and 621. We continue to move forward with future development of lots, as per the approved subdivision plats. As stated above, we are also continuing our coordination with LCRA regarding water issues, and are in regular communication with the POA with respect to various issues throughout the overall subdivision. Additionally, we are aware of the bird habitat and nesting schedule (from April to August), and continue to comply with limitations on development and construction during that time. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or require additional information. Best regards, Paul W. Linehan, ASLA President PWL:enw cc: Albuquerque Office (PO Box 1306, Room 4102, Albuquerque, NM 87103) cc: Robert Teeter – Madison Realty Investors
