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 Storage Factory Project, involving construction and operation of facilities by Dominion Transmission, Inc. (Dominion) in Tioga County, VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:56 Jan 25, 2008 Jkt 214001 Pennsylvania and Frederick County, Maryland. The EA will be used by the Commission in its decisionmaking process to determine whether the project is in the public convenience and necessity. This notice announces the opening of a second scoping period (due to changes in the project and design) that will be used to gather environmental input from the public and interested agencies on the project. Your input will help the Commission staff determine which issues need to be evaluated in the EA. Please note that the scoping period will close on February 19, 2008. Comments may be submitted in written or verbal form. Further details on how to submit written comments are provided in the Public Participation section of this notice. In lieu of sending written comments, you may choose to attend the public scoping meeting scheduled as follows: Date and time Location Wednesday, February 6, 2008, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. (EST). Middletown Middle School, 100 High Street, Middletown, MD 21769, Telephone: (240) 236– 4200. This notice is being sent to affected landowners; Federal, State, and local government representatives and agencies; environmental and public interest groups; Native American tribes; other interested parties in this proceeding; and local libraries and newspapers. We 1 encourage government representatives to notify their constituents of this planned project and encourage them to comment on their areas of concern. If you are a landowner receiving this notice, you may be contacted by a Dominion representative about the acquisition of an easement to construct, operate, and maintain the proposed project 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, Dominion 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?’’ addresses a number of typically asked questions, including the 1 ‘‘We’’ ‘‘us’’ and ‘‘our’’ refer to the environmental staff of the Office of Energy Projects, part of the Commission staff.

Summary of the Proposed Project On August 29, 2007, we issued a Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Assessment for the Proposed Storage Factory Project, Request for Comments on Environmental Issues, and Notice of Public Scoping Meetings and Site Visit. At the time of that Notice, the project facilities were all in Pennsylvania. Subsequently, Dominion made modifications to its project design, which have resulted in the removal of some facilities and the addition of others. The current configuration of the proposed facilities is detailed below. The Storage Factory Project would involve the leaching of two salt caverns and placing the first cavern in service by 2014. The project consists of constructing leaching/pumping facilities, a brine processing facility, water and brine pipelines, and a new compressor station for gas storage injection/withdrawal purposes in Tioga County, Pennsylvania. Alternative water sources for leaching of the salt caverns are also being investigated. Dominion is also proposing piping upgrades to its existing Sabinsville Storage Pool in Tioga County. In addition, Dominion proposes construction of a new 14,000 horsepower compressor station (Middletown Compressor Station) located off of Marker Road approximately two miles west of Middletown in Frederick County, Maryland. As part of its modifications, Dominion has removed the proposed additional compression at Dominion’s existing Ardell Station located in Elk County, Pennsylvania and approximately 7.5 miles of new 30-inch-diameter pipeline looping in Clinton County, Pennsylvania. Dominion anticipates filing an application with the FERC after March 2008 and to seek the Commission’s approval in time for Dominion to begin construction by March 2009, with a proposed in-service date of January 2014.
