The proposed modular, low environmental impact powerhouse would be approximately 60.4 feet long, 16.6 feet wide, and 40 feet high, and constructed of structuralgrade steel. The powerhouse will bear on a concrete foundation on rock that is anchored to the existing left closure weir. A trash rack with 6-inch openings would be placed at the powerhouse intake to increase safety and protect the turbines from large debris. l.

Waiver of Pre-filing Consultation: In its license application, filed on September 17, 2012, the applicant stated that it had been engaged in direct, substantive consultation with the entities that have expressed interest in the proposed project, including key federal and state agencies involved in the review of the proposed project. The applicant further states that in August, 2012, it forwarded an informal draft of the license application and associated study reports to the interested agencies, and subsequently met with the agencies to discuss the documents in detail. The applicant’s license application included copies of correspondence from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection expressing support for proceeding directly to a final license application. Therefore, we intend to accept the consultation that has occurred on this project during the pre-filing period and we intend to waive the pre-filing consultation requirements under section 4.38(c) pertaining to distribution and consultation on the draft license application.

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 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 party must submit 7 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. 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.

Commission staff determined that the issues that need to be addressed in its EA have been adequately identified during the prefiling period, which included a public meeting and site visit, and no new issues are likely to be identified through additional scoping. The EA will consider assessing the potential effects of project construction and operation on geology and soils, aquatic, terrestrial, threatened and endangered species, and cultural and historic resources. n.
