The project is currently operating under an annual license.2 The project is a storage reservoir located on the east branch of the St. Croix River in Washington 5 The Commission’s regulation requires license applications to be filed within 18 months of the date a license applicant files its notice of intent. However, because the Commission’s Integrated Licensing Process calls for a three year preapplication process, section 16.25(b)(1) is extended for this project. 1 The project was transferred to Domtar Maine Corporation (Domtar) on October 26, 2001. 97 FERC ¶ 62,078. 2 Notice authorizing continued project operation was issued November 21, 2000. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:37 Dec 27, 2005 Jkt 208001 County, Maine, along the United StatesCanadian border. The Forest City Project consists of a 16-foot-high, 500-foot-long dam and a 16,070-acre reservoir. There are no generating facilities at the project. Water is discharged from the Forest City Dam and enters Spednick Lake, which is regulated by the licensed Vanceboro Project No. 2492.3 The water then flows to Domtar’s unlicensed Grand Falls Project, located 35 miles downstream from the Forest City Project, and thence an additional 12 miles to the unlicensed Woodland generating project. The Grand Falls and Woodland Projects, both of which generate electricity, have been found not to require licensing, because they were authorized by a 1916 Act of Congress that predated the 1920 enactment of what is now part I of the FPA.4 Pursuant to section 16.9 of the Commission’s regulations, the deadline for filing an application for new license and any competing license application was August 31, 1998. No application for license for this project was filed. Normally, pursuant to section 16.25 of the Commission’s regulations, the Commission would solicit applications from potential applicants other than the existing licensee. However, the Commission’s Order On Rehearing, On Clarification, and Lifting Stay,5 concludes that it would be in the public interest to allow Domtar the opportunity to file an application for new license for this project and confirms that the incumbent preference will apply in any licensing proceedings that ensue. In the rehearing order, the Commission waived those parts of 18 CFR 16.24(a)(2) and 16.25(a) that would otherwise bar Domtar from filing an application in response to this notice.
