Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 13 / Thursday, January 22, 2009 / Notices 1. The permit applicant, Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority (ANGDA), is proposing to construct a 460-mile pipeline with a 20- to 24-inch hard pipe bidirectional line from Beluga, AK to Delta Junction, AK and a 10- to 15-inch soft line from Delta Junction to North Pole/Fairbanks, AK to deliver natural gas from the Beluga gas fields to interior Alaska. The proposed route and adjacent service area would begin in Beluga, AK, continuing through the community of Palmer, AK then easterly along the Glenn Highway, with a deviation northwardly through Chitna Pass to Glennallen, AK. It would then turn north following the Richardson Highway paralleling the Trans Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS) route to the city of Delta Junction, AK. The pipe would then turn west continuing along the TAPS route to a connection point near the Golden Valley Electric Association (GVEA) power plant in North Pole, AK. The pipeline would be buried throughout the corridor. Three compressor stations are proposed at Palmer, Glennallen, and North Pole, AK. 2. The right of way for the proposed pipeline corridor is owned by numerous entities. The largest land owners along the proposed route include the Bureau of Land Management, the Military (Fort Greely, Fort Wainwright and Eielson Air Force Base), Native Allotments/ Corporations, private land owners and the State of Alaska. 3. Additional alternatives to the applicant’s proposal include four routing segments variations and one design alternative (A map depicting the location of each alternate route is available at the EIS Web site): a. Route Alternative 1: Utilization of a Chugach Electric easement from Beluga, AK across the Susitna River to Palmer, AK rather than the ENSTAR pipeline route. This route would deviate northeastwardly from the proposed route west of the Susitna River and would realign with the proposed route south of Knik, AK. b. Route Alternative 2: Employ full utilization of the Glenn Highway route from Sutton, AK to Eureka, AK rather than deviating through Chitna Pass north of Chickaloon, AK. This route would deviate from the proposed route at Sutton, AK and follow the Glenn Highway, realigning with the proposed route at approximately milepost 128 of the Glenn Highway, southwest of Nelchina, AK. c. Route Alternative 3: Utilization of the TAPS corridor from Delta Junction, AK to North Pole, AK as an alternate route to bring gas directly to the GVEA power plant. rmajette on PRODPC74 with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:47 Jan 21, 2009 Jkt 217001 d. Route Alternative 4: Utilization of the Parks Highway route from Fairbanks, AK to Wasilla, AK rather that use of the Glenn Highway route. e. Design Alternative 1: Use of 4-inch steel tubing for the segment from Delta Junction, AK to North Pole, AK rather than plastic tubing. 4. Scoping: a. The Corps invites full public participation to promote open communication on the issues surrounding the proposal. All Federal, State, Tribal, local agencies, and other persons or organizations that have an interest are urged to participate in the NEPA scoping process. These meetings will be held to receive public input on the proposed purpose and need of the project, to identify significant issues and to discuss proposed alternatives. The scoping process will help to further explain the purpose and need plus the alternatives to be reviewed in the DEIS. The project scoping period will begin on February 1, 2009 and end on March 15, 2009. b. The DEIS will analyze the potential social, economic, and environmental impacts to the affected areas. The following major issues will be analyzed in depth in the DEIS: The natural gas delivery system construction and operation and its affect upon the surrounding communities; essential fish habitat; threatened and endangered species including critical habitat; cultural resources; socioeconomics; alternatives; secondary and cumulative impacts. c. The Corps will serve as the lead Federal agency in the preparation of the DEIS. The Bureau of Land Management is participating as a cooperating agency. 5. The scoping meetings are tentatively planned for the following dates and locations and each meeting with include an open-house from 5 p.m.–6 p.m. and a project presentation and questions and answer session from 6 p.m.–8 p.m. (Please consult the above referenced Web site for any changes and additional information including the scoping summary): a.
