Meeting of the National Drinking Water Advisory Council-Notice of Public Meeting, 61614 [05-21263]

Download as PDF 61614 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 205 / Tuesday, October 25, 2005 / Notices Southwestern’s marketing area includes these States plus Kansas and Louisiana. Southwestern markets Federal power and energy, and owns and operates a transmission system to integrate its hydroelectric resources in order to reliably deliver such power and energy. Southwestern provides transmission services for the transmission of nonFederal power and energy across Southwestern’s transmission system only to the extent that capacity is available over and above that required to fulfill Southwestern’s mission and obligations under section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944. Nothing in the proposed tariff is intended to alter, amend, or abridge Southwestern’s statutory obligation to market Federal power and to repay the Federal investment in the hydroelectric generation projects from which it markets power as well as the investment in its associated transmission system. On March 31, 2005, Southwestern and the SPP RTO entered into an agreement, which became effective April 1, 2005, and which provides for the SPP RTO to administer Southwestern’s Tariff, provide regional reliability council services, scheduling services, operating reserve sharing, Open Access Same Time Information System (‘‘OASIS’’) administration, and reliability coordination. The agreement, accepted for filing by the Commission as SPP RTO tariff Attachment AD, also facilitates the reciprocal use of Southwestern’s and the SPP RTO’s transmission facilities and provides for Southwestern’s participation in regional transmission expansion. To provide consistency with the regional practices of the SPP RTO, Southwestern has made changes to its Tariff scheduling, transmission service application, available transmission capability, and facilities studies timing requirements. Changes have also been made to the provisions of Southwestern’s Tariff concerning generation redispatch that clarify Southwestern’s limitations in the use of its generation resources to provide redispatch under Southwestern’s Tariff. The water used to supply the energy from Southwestern’s hydroelectric generation resources is limited, and the use of such water and generation resources from Federal hydroelectric projects within congressionally authorized purposes is dictated by Federal statute. These limitations are consistent with the agreement between Southwestern and the SPP RTO. Following review of the oral and written comments and the information gathered in the course of the proceedings, the Administrator will VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:53 Oct 24, 2005 Jkt 208001 submit the finalized Tariff to the Commission and request a declaratory order that the Tariff meets Commission requirements as set forth in Commission Order No. 888, et al., to the extent consistent with applicable law. The revised Tariff is posted on Southwestern’s Web site at http:// www.swpa.gov. Southwestern must receive written comments by the end of the informal comment period to ensure they are considered in Southwestern’s filing with the Commission. Dated: October 14, 2005. Michael A. Deihl, Administrator.
