Diversion of river flow through the 50-foot-long power canal and to the powerhouse creates a 100foot-long bypassed reach in the Rock River.

proposed 346-megawatt (MW) power plant located within the north 
industrial area of the Port of Kalama, all located in Cowlitz County, 
Washington. This project is designed to provide 62,888 decatherms per

estimated to be approximately $18,234,675, all as more fully set forth 
in the application which is on file with the Commission and open to

or by email at pam.j.barnes@williams.com.
    On November 18, 2011, the Commission staff granted Northwest's 
request to utilize the Pre-Filing Process and assigned Docket No. PF12-
2-000 to staff activities involved the Kalama Lateral Pipeline Project. 
Now as of the filing the November 21, 2012 application, the Pre-Filing 
Process for this project has ended. From this time forward, this 
proceeding will be conducted in Docket No. CP13-18-000, 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 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 in the proceeding with the 
Commission and must mail a copy to the applicant and to every other 
party. 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.
    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 commentors 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 commentors will not be required to serve copies of filed 
documents on all other parties. However, the non-party commentors

[[Page 73636]]

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.
    The Commission strongly encourages electronic filings of comments, 
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.
