PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 31607 Abstract: The Commission requires the FERC–587 information collection to satisfy the requirements of section 24 of the Federal Power Act (FPA). The Federal Power Act grants the Commission authority to issue licenses for the development and improvement of navigation and for the development, transmission, and utilization of power across, along, from or in any of the steams or other bodies of water over which Congress has jurisdiction.1 The Electric Consumers Protection Act (ECPA) amended the FPA to allow the Commission the responsibility of issuing licenses for nonfederal hydroelectric plants.2 Section 24 of the FPA requires that applicants proposing hydropower projects on (or changes to existing projects located within) lands owned by the United States to provide a description of the applicable U.S. land. Additionally, the FPA requires the notification of the Commission and Secretary of the Interior of the hydropower proposal. FERC–587 consolidates the information required and identifies hydropower project boundary maps associated with the applicable U.S. land. The information consolidated by the Form No. 587 verifies the accuracy of the information provided for the FERC– 587 to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Department of the Interior (DOI). Moreover, this information ensures that U.S. lands can be reserved as hydropower sites and withdrawn from other uses. Type of Respondents: Applicants proposing hydropower projects on (or changes to existing projects located within) lands owned by the United States. Estimate of Annual Burden: 3 The Commission estimates the total Public Reporting Burden for this information collection as: 1 16 U.S.C. 797d (2010).
