SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Western published the Post-2009 Resource Pool—Loveland Area Projects— Allocation Procedures and Call for Applications (Procedures) on October 22, 2008 (73 FR 62981), to implement Subpart C—Power Marketing Initiative of the Program’s Final Rule, 10 CFR part 905, published on October 20, 1995, at 60 FR 54151, as revised on March 30, 2000, at 65 FR 16795. The Program, developed in part to implement section 114 of the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (Pub. L. 102–486), became effective on November 20, 1995. The Program establishes project-specific power resource pools and provides for the allocation of power from these pools to new preference customers. The allocation procedures, in conjunction with the General Power Marketing and Allocation Criteria (Criteria) (51 FR 4012, January 31, 1986), establish the framework for allocating power from the Loveland Area Projects (LAP) resource pool. Western published its proposed allocation and initiated a public comment period in the Federal Register (74 FR 13430, March 27, 2009). A public comment forum on the proposed allocation was held April 16, 2009. Public comments were due to Western by April 27, 2009, at 4 p.m. MDT. Western received one comment regarding the proposed allocation. I. Comment and Response Comment: One customer commented that with fewer eligible applicants, an allottee may get more power than if there were more eligible applicants for the resource pool. Response: Each eligible allottee receives a proportional share of the resource pool based on its average seasonal load; however, each allottee receiving an allocation from a LAP resource pool is capped at 5,000 kilowatts (kW) of capacity. The energy is similarly capped to be consistent with the capacity allocation. This method complies with EPAMP and is consistent with RMR’s previous resource pool allocation process. II. Amount of Pool Resources Western will allocate up to 1 percent (1%) of the LAP long-term hydroelectric resource available as of October 1, 2009. Approximately 6.9 megawatts (MW) of capacity and 11.3 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of energy will be available for the summer season. Winter availability will be approximately 6.1 MW of capacity and 9.1 GWh of energy. This resource pool is created by reducing existing customers’ allocations by up to 1%. III. Final Power Allocation Western received four applications for the Post-2009 LAP resource pool. All applicants were eligible and four allocations were proposed. Since the proposed allocations were published, one entity with a proposed allocation, the University of Wyoming, was unable to obtain delivery of its allocation and withdrew its application. As provided in the Procedures, the total resource was redistributed to the remaining allottees. Through this redistribution, the City of Russell’s summer capacity exceeded the 5,000 kW maximum by 570 kW. The 570 kW and associated summer energy of 932,451 kWh is being returned to the existing customers.

2009. Public comments were due to Western by April 27, 2009, at 4 p.m. 
MDT. Western received one comment regarding the proposed allocation.

I. Comment and Response

    Comment: One customer commented that with fewer eligible 
applicants, an allottee may get more power than if there were more 
eligible applicants for the resource pool.
    Response: Each eligible allottee receives a proportional share of 
the resource pool based on its average seasonal load; however, each 
allottee receiving an allocation from a LAP resource pool is capped at 
5,000 kilowatts (kW) of capacity. The energy is similarly capped to be 
consistent with the capacity allocation. This method complies with 
EPAMP and is consistent with RMR's previous resource pool allocation 
process.

II. Amount of Pool Resources

    Western will allocate up to 1 percent (1%) of the LAP long-term 
hydroelectric resource available as of October 1, 2009. Approximately 
6.9 megawatts (MW) of capacity and 11.3 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of energy 
will be available for the summer season. Winter availability will be 
approximately 6.1 MW of capacity and 9.1 GWh of energy. This resource 
pool is created by reducing existing customers' allocations by up to 
1%.

III. Final Power Allocation

    Western received four applications for the Post-2009 LAP resource 
pool. All applicants were eligible and four allocations were proposed. 
Since the proposed allocations were published, one entity with a 
proposed allocation, the University of Wyoming, was unable to obtain 
delivery of its allocation and withdrew its application. As provided in 
the Procedures, the total resource was redistributed to the remaining

    The final power allocations shown in the table above are based on 
the LAP marketable resource currently available. If the LAP marketable 
resource is adjusted in the future, all allocations may be adjusted 
accordingly. Long-term firm energy with associated capacity made 
available for marketing because an allocation(s) has been reduced or 
withdrawn may be administratively reallocated by Western's 
Administrator without further public process (Criteria Section V.C.3.).

IV. Review Under the National Environmental Policy Act

    In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 
1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321-4347); Council on Environmental Quality 
Regulations (40 CFR parts 1500-1508); and DOE NEPA Regulations (10 CFR

excluded from preparing an environmental assessment or an environmental 
impact statement.
