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.

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 York Haven Project consists of a headrace wall, main dam, east channel dam, powerhouse, and forebay bulkhead. The stone masonry headrace wall extends VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:11 Sep 19, 2012 Jkt 226001 3,000 feet upstream from the north end of the powerhouse and, with an average height of 20 feet, directs flow to the powerhouse. The main dam is attached to the north end of the headrace where it runs diagonally across the main channel of the river approximately 4,970 feet to the west shore of Three Mile Island. The main dam is constructed of concrete fill, and has a maximum height at the crest of 17 feet and an average height of 10 feet. The east channel dam consists of a concrete gravity dam that extends approximately 950 feet east from the east shore of Three Mile Island to the east bank of the river. The east channel dam has an average height of 10 feet. The stone masonry forebay bulkhead wall, 155 feet long, extends west from the south end of the powerhouse to the transformer building, perpendicular to the shoreline. From the transformer building, the forebay bulkhead wall extends 475 feet north along the property line to the west bank of the river. A 14-foot-wide by 10.5-foot-tall trash sluice gate and associated spillway are located adjacent to the southern end of the powerhouse at the eastern end of the forebay wall. York Haven’s main dam and east channel dam impound the Susquehanna River, forming Lake Frederic that extends 3.5 miles upstream from the dam. Total storage in the 1,849-acre reservoir is approximately 8,000 acrefeet, and total useable storage is approximately 1,980 acre-feet. The current FERC license allows a 1.1-foot fluctuation in the project impoundment, but is not used under normal run-ofriver operation. The normal water surface elevation of the project impoundment is 276.5 feet. The elevation of the normal river surface below the dam is approximately 251.40 feet. The impoundment provides approximately 22.5 feet of net head for power generation purposes. The brick and stone masonry powerhouse has approximate dimensions of 470 feet by 48 feet and is located at the southern end of the headrace wall and at the eastern end of the forebay bulkhead wall. The powerhouse includes 20 turbinegenerator units and appurtenant equipment. The hydraulic equipment for units 1–3 are vertical-shaft, fixedblade, Kaplan turbines; unit 4 is a vertical-shaft, manually adjustable blade, Kaplan turbine; units 5 and 6 are vertical-shaft, fixed-blade, propellertype turbines; units 7, 8, 10–13, and 15– 20 each consist of two vertical-shaft, Francis turbines connected through bevel gears to a single horizontal shaft; unit 9 is a two vertical-shaft, Francis turbine connected through a gearbox to PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 58369 a single horizontal shaft; and unit 14 is a vertical-shaft, Francis turbine. Units 1–5 have 1.6–MW generators; unit 6 has a 1.32–MW generator; unit 14 has a 1.2– MW generator; and units 7–13 and 15– 20 have 0.7–MW generators. Water flowing through the turbines is discharged into the tailrace immediately downstream of the dam. Electricity generated at the project is transmitted by 115-kilovolt (kV) transmission lines extending from the project substation to the grid. The York Haven Project has an authorized nameplate generating capacity of 19.65 MW and generates an average of 130,812 MWh annually. York Haven Power is currently studying the feasibility of providing a nature-like fishway to enhance fish passage facilities at the project. l.
