Description of Project: The Forest City Project is located at river mile 58 of the East Branch of the St. Croix River on the international boundary between the United States and Canada. The existing project as licensed includes only the lands, waters, and structures that are located in the United States, which consist of: (a) A 147-foot-long section of the 540-foot-long, 12-foothigh earthen Forest City Dam that includes: (i) A 110-foot-long west earthen embankment, and (ii) a 37-footlong section of the timber-crib spillway section with two 8.3-foot-wide, 10-foothigh spillway gates on the west side of the spillway, which control the impoundment between a minimum elevation of 427.94 feet mean sea level (msl) and a maximum elevation of 434.94 feet msl; (b) a 9,141-acre portion of the 17,040-acre multi-lake impoundment (North Lake and East Grand Lake); and (c) appurtenant facilities. The project does not occupy federal lands and there are no generating facilities located at the project. The Forest City Project supplies water to the unlicensed downstream Grand Falls and Woodland hydroelectric projects. PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40149 In November 2015, the Commission issued Woodland Pulp a new license to operate and maintain the Forest City Project. In December 2016, Woodland Pulp filed an application to surrender its new license and decommission the project by removing the gates located on the United States side of the spillway. The Commission is considering the licensee’s surrender and decommissioning proceeding in Project No. 2660–028. On July 24, 2017, Governor LePage of Maine signed into law a resolve authorizing Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (Maine DIFW) to assume ownership of the Forest City Dam pursuant to two conditions: (1) The Commission finds that the Forest City Project will not require a license from the Commission if Maine DIFW owns the U.S. portion of the dam; and (2) Maine DIFW executes an agreement with Woodland Pulp that provides that Woodland Pulp and its successors will operate and maintain the Forest City Dam consistent with the manner in which the dam was operated in most recent 12 months, at the direction of the State, and at no cost to the State, for a period of 15 years. On July 27, 2017, Maine DIFW and Woodland Pulp executed an operation and management agreement. l. Description of Request: The licensee requests the Commission to find that the Forest City Project will not be necessary or appropriate for any downstream unit of development if the licensee transfers the dam to the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, and will therefore no longer be required to be licensed pursuant to section 23(b)(1) of the Federal Power Act. m.
