SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Western is a power marketing agency of DOE that markets Federal electric power to statutorily defined customers including project use, municipalities, irrigation districts, and Native American tribes. Western initially proposed to prepare an Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposed Trinity Public Utility District (PUD) Direct Interconnection Project on February 25, 2005. The USFS expressed concerns regarding potential impacts to the northern spotted owl and designated critical habitat and on Late Successional Reserve forest areas. Based on a review of the USFS concerns, Western determined to prepare an EIS, with USFS and BLM as cooperating agencies. The EIS will address the environmental impacts of the removal of about 5.3 miles of existing 12-kV distribution line and the construction and operation of about 16 miles of new 60-kV transmission line, a tap structure and associated equipment, and a new switchyard in Trinity County. Western’s EIS process will comply with NEPA (42 U.S.C. 4321–4347, as amended), Council on Environmental Quality regulations for implementing NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] parts 1500– 1508) and DOE NEPA implementing procedures (10 CFR part 1021). Because the proposed project may involve action in floodplains, the EIS will include a floodplain assessment and floodplain statement of findings following DOE regulations for compliance with floodplain and wetlands environmental review (10 CFR part 1022). Purpose and Need Western proposes to establish a direct connection between Western’s Central Valley Project (CVP) and Trinity PUD at a higher voltage to strengthen power deliveries and enhance reliability of service. Delivery of CVP power to Trinity County, in part, is authorized by the Trinity River Division Act. Proposed Project Description The proposed project would include (1) removal of about 5.3 miles of old 12kV distribution line from Trinity Power E:\FR\FM\19JNN1.SGM 19JNN1
