DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Summary of the Proposed Project [Docket No. CP05–364–000] ANR Pipeline Company; Notice of Intent To Prepare an Environmental Assessment for the Proposed Wisconsin 2006 Expansion Project and Request for Comments on Environmental Issues June 22, 2005. The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or Commission) will prepare an environmental assessment (EA) that will discuss the environmental impacts of the Wisconsin 2006 Expansion Project involving construction and operation of facilities by ANR Pipeline Company (ANR) in Rock, Outagamie, Marinette, Dane, Marathon, and Columbia Counties, Wisconsin.1 ANR’s project purpose is to create about 168,241 decatherms per day of incremental firm capacity on its pipeline system to accommodate growth in demand from all market segments in Wisconsin. In general these facilities would consist of about 6.86 miles of various diameter pipeline, addition of compression at 2 compressor stations, and minor upgrades at 5 existing meter stations. This EA will be used by the Commission in its decision-making process to determine whether the project is in the public convenience and necessity. If you are a landowner receiving this notice, you may be contacted by a pipeline company representative about the acquisition of an easement to construct, operate, and maintain the proposed facilities. The pipeline company would seek to negotiate a mutually acceptable agreement. However, if the project is approved by the Commission, that approval conveys with it the right of eminent domain. Therefore, if easement negotiations fail to produce an agreement, the pipeline company could initiate condemnation proceedings in accordance with state law. A fact sheet prepared by the FERC entitled ‘‘An Interstate Natural Gas Facility On My Land? What Do I Need To Know?’’ was attached to the project notice ANR provided to landowners. This fact sheet addresses a number of typically asked questions, including the use of eminent domain and how to participate in the Commission’s 1 ANR’s application was filed with the Commission under section 7 of the Natural Gas Act and Part 157 of the Commission’s regulations.

Specifically, the project includes: • Little Chute Loop (Outagamie County)—About 3.08 miles of 16-inch outside diameter (OD) pipeline, looping the existing 6-inch OD pipeline; • Madison Lateral Loop (Rock County)—About 3.78 miles of 30-inch OD pipeline, looping the existing 10inch and 12-inch OD pipelines; • Janesville Compressor Station Upgrade (Rock County)—A new 2,370 horsepower (hp) reciprocating compressor unit and associated equipment to be installed at an existing compressor station site; • Goodman Compressor Station (Marinette County)—A new 20,620 hp compressor station comprised of two 10,310 hp units to be built at an existing meter station site; and • Meter Station Upgrades (Dane, Marathon, and Columbia Counties)— Minor equipment modifications at 5 existing meter stations (McFarland, Sun Prairie, and Stoughton Meter Stations in Dane County; North Wausau Meter Station in Marathon County; and Randolph Meter Station in Columbia County). The general locations of the project facilities are shown in Appendix 1.3 Land Requirements for Construction Construction of the proposed facilities would require about 144.68 acres of land. Following construction, about 58.82 acres would be maintained as new aboveground facility sites. The remaining 85.86 acres of land would be restored and allowed to revert to its former use. 2 A loop is a segment of pipeline installed adjacent to an existing pipeline and which connects to the existing pipeline at both ends of the loop. The loop allows more gas to be moved through the system. 3 The appendices referenced in this notice are not being printed in the Federal Register. Copies of all appendices, other than Appendix 1 (maps), are available on the Commission’s website at the ‘‘eLibrary’’ link or from the Commission’s Public Reference Room, 888 First Street, NW., Washington, D.C. 20426, or call (202) 502–8371.
