FERC Contact: Emily Carter, (202) 502–6512 or emily.carter@ferc.gov. j. This application is not ready for environmental analysis at this time. k. The Project Description: The Conowingo Project consists of a concrete gravity dam with a maximum height of approximately 94 feet. The dam consists of a 1,225-foot-long nonoverflow gravity section, a 2,385-footlong ogee shaped spillway section, a 950-foot-long intake-powerhouse section, and a 100-foot-long nonoverflow gravity section. The spillway consists of a 2,250-foot-long section with a crest elevation of 86.0 feet, and a 135-foot-long section with a crest elevation of 98.5 feet. The spillway is fitted with 50 Stoney-type crest gates and two regulating gates. Each Stoney crest gate is 22.5 feet high by 38 feet wide and has a discharge capacity of 16,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) at a reservoir elevation of 109.2 feet. The two regulating gates are 10 feet high by PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58367 38 feet wide and have a discharge capacity of 4,000 cfs per gate at a reservoir elevation of 109.2 feet. Conowingo dam impounds the Susquehanna River, forming Conowingo reservoir (Conowingo pond) that extends 14 miles upstream from the dam. Total storage in the 9,000-acre reservoir is approximately 310,000 acrefeet, and total useable storage is about 71,000 acre-feet at the normal full pool elevation of 109.2 feet. The elevation of the normal river surface below the dam is approximately 20.5 feet. The impoundment provides approximately 89 feet of gross head for power generation purposes. The power plant is integral with the dam and is composed of 13 turbinegenerator units, draft tubes, and transformer bays. The first seven turbine-generating units (1–7) are completely enclosed within the powerhouse, and the last four units (8– 11) are located outside. The hydraulic equipment for units 1–7 consists of Francis-type single runner hydraulic turbines. The hydraulic equipment for units 8–11 consists of four mixed-flow Kaplan-type hydraulic turbines. Units 1, 3, 4, 6 and 7 have 47.7-MW generators; Units 2 and 5 have 36.0-MW generators; and Units 8–11 have 65.6-MW generators. Additionally, two house turbines provide station service and ‘‘black-start’’ capability with each unit having a 1.6-MW generator. Water flowing through the turbines is discharged via the draft tubes into the tailrace immediately downstream of the dam. Electricity generated at the project is transmitted by two individual 220kilovolt (kV) transmission lines extending from the project substation to East Nottingham. The Conowingo Project has an authorized nameplate generating capacity of 573 MW and generates an average of 1,836,125 MWh annually. Exelon is not proposing any new or upgraded facilities or structural changes to the project at this time. Also, Exelon has engaged interested stakeholders to participate in the development of a comprehensive settlement agreement based on collaborative negotiation of specific terms and conditions for the new Conowingo license. l.

On December 22, 2011, the Commission staff granted CCL’s request to use the pre-filing process and assigned Docket No. PF12–3–000 for this proceeding during the pre-filing review of the project. Now, as of the filing of CCL’s application on August 31, 2012, the pre-filing process for this project has ended. From this time forward, CCL’s proceeding will be conducted in Docket No. CP12–507– 000, as noted in the caption of this Notice. Pursuant to section 157.9 of the Commission’s rules, 18 CFR 157.9, within 90 days of this Notice the Commission staff will either: complete its environmental assessment (EA) and place it into the Commission’s public record (eLibrary) for this proceeding; or issue a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review. If a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review is issued, it will indicate, among other milestones, the anticipated date for the Commission staff’s issuance of the final environmental impact statement (FEIS) or EA for this proposal. The filing of the EA in the Commission’s public record for this proceeding or the issuance of a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review will serve to notify federal and state agencies of the timing for the completion of all necessary reviews, and the subsequent need to complete all federal authorizations within 90 days of the date of issuance of the Commission staff’s FEIS or EA. There are two ways to become involved in the Commission’s review of this project. First, any person wishing to obtain legal status by becoming a party to the proceedings for this project should, on or before the comment date stated below, file with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426, a motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (18 CFR 385.214 or 385.211) and the Regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.10). A person obtaining party status will be placed on the service list maintained by the Secretary of the Commission and will receive copies of all documents filed by the applicant and by all other parties. A party must submit seven copies of filings made with the Commission and must mail a copy to the applicant and to every other party in the proceeding. Only parties to the proceeding can ask for court review of Commission orders in the proceeding. Persons who wish to comment only on the environmental review of this project should submit an original and two copies of their comments to the Secretary of the Commission. Environmental cementers will be placed on the Commission’s environmental mailing list, will receive copies of the environmental documents, and will be notified of meetings associated with the Commission’s environmental review process. Environmental cementers will not be required to serve copies of filed documents on all other parties. However, the nonparty commenters will not receive copies of all documents filed by other parties or issued by the Commission (except for the mailing of environmental documents issued by the Commission) and will not have the right to seek court review of the Commission’s final order. However, a person does not have to intervene in order to have comments considered. The second way to participate is by filing with the Secretary of the Commission, as soon as possible, an original and two copies of comments in support of or in opposition to this project. The Commission will consider these comments in determining the appropriate action to be taken, but the filing of a comment alone will not serve to make the filer a party to the proceeding. The Commission’s rules require that persons filing comments in opposition to the project provide copies of their protests only to the party or parties directly involved in the protest. The Commission encourages electronic submission of protests and interventions in lieu of paper using the ‘‘eFiling’’ link at http://www.ferc.gov. Persons unable to file electronically should submit an original and seven copies of the protest or intervention to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426.
