On September 19 and September 20, 2006, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) Staff and Pacific Gas and Electric Company, the applicant, will conduct an on-site visit of the McCloud-Pit Project located on the McCloud and Pit Rivers in Shasta County, California. Under the Integrated Licensing Process (ILP), the Commission conducts its National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) scoping meeting within 90 days of the filing of the applicant’s Notice of Intent and PreApplication Document. A site visit is typically held in conjunction with that scoping meeting; however, scoping for this project is currently planned for October 23 and 24, 2006 and access to some project facilities may be limited by weather conditions. For this reason, the Commission will host the site visit earlier in the process. The Commission encourages all interested parties to participate in this site visit to ensure a productive scoping meeting in October 2006. The site visit is open to the public and resource agencies. Participants are responsible for their own transportation, but car pooling is encouraged as much as possible. Some roads in upper watershed locations are unpaved and may be in poor condition—4-wheel drive is recommended, but not required. Also, portions of the tour may require hiking steep trails in remote locations, so please plan accordingly. Tour days may be long, so please bring food and water. A tentative schedule is provided below (times given are in Pacific Daylight Savings): E:\FR\FM\30AUN1.SGM 30AUN1
