Further, if an intervenor files comments or documents with the Commission relating to the merits of an issue that may affect the responsibilities of a particular resource agency, they must also serve a copy of the document on that resource agency. k. This application has been accepted for filing and is now ready for environmental analysis. l. The Rock River Beach Project consists of the following existing facilities: (1) A 33.6-foot-long by 5.5foot-high, L-shaped gravity dam with a crest elevation of 606.95 feet North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88) that impounds a 5-acre reservoir with a total storage capacity of 25 acre-feet; (2) an 8-foot-wide spillway containing two steel sluice gates, a 24inch-high bottom gate that remains fixed in place and a 36-inch-high slide gate that is raised and lowered manually; (3) a 30-foot-wide by 50-foot-long power canal; (4) an 18-foot by 24-foot woodframed powerhouse housing a 3kilowatt (kW) generating unit run by a water wheel and a 5-kW generating unit run by a 24-inch vertical-shaft propeller turbine for a total installed capacity of 8 kW; and (5) two, 220-volt, 0.5-milelong transmission lines. The powerhouse also contains a 6-kW antique Edison generator that operates via the water wheel and is operated once a year. The applicant operates the project in a run-of-river mode (i.e., at any point in time, the combined outflow from the project’s dam and powerhouse approximates all inflows to the project’s reservoir). The project operates from June 20 through September 15, and October 15 through November 15. At all other times, the reservoir is drawn down approximately 4 feet with the fixed sluice gate maintaining an 18 to 24-inch head to prevent the upstream migration of sea lamprey from Lake Superior. Diversion of river flow through the 50foot-long power canal and to the powerhouse creates a 100-foot-long bypassed reach in the Rock River. Average annual generation at the project PO 00000 Frm 00021 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48155 varies between 9,000 and 18,000 kilowatt-hours. All of the existing project facilities are owned by the applicant. The applicant proposes no new facilities or changes to existing project operations. m. Due to the projects works already existing and the applicant’s close coordination with federal and state agencies during the preparation of the application, we intend to waive scoping. Based on a review of the application and resource agency consultation letters, Commission staff intends to prepare a single environmental assessment (EA). Commission staff has 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 operation on geology and soils, aquatic, terrestrial, threatened and endangered species, recreation and land use, aesthetic, and cultural and historic resources. n. A copy of the application is available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room or may be viewed on the Commission’s Web site at https://www.ferc.gov using the ‘‘eLibrary’’ link. Enter the docket number excluding the last three digits in the docket number field to access the document. For assistance, contact FERC Online Support. A copy is also available for inspection and reproduction at the address in item h above. Register online at https:// www.ferc.gov/docs-filing/ esubscription.asp to be notified via email of new filings and issuances related to this or other pending projects. For assistance, contact FERC Online Support. o. Any qualified applicant desiring to file a competing application must submit to the Commission, on or before the specified intervention deadline date, a competing development application, or a notice of intent to file such an application. Submission of a timely notice of intent allows an interested person to file the competing development application no later than 120 days after the specified intervention deadline date. Applications for preliminary permits will not be accepted in response to this notice. A notice of intent must specify the exact name, business address, and telephone number of the prospective applicant, and must include an unequivocal statement of intent to submit a development application.

    Any questions regarding this application should be directed to 
Scott Turkington, Director, Rates & Regulatory, Transcontinental Gas 
Pipeline Company, LLC, Post Office Box 1396, Houston, Texas, 77251-
1396, or by calling (713) 215-3391 or scott.c.turkington@williams.com.
    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 14 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.
    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 commenters 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 commenters will not be required to serve copies of filed 
documents on all other parties. However, the non-party 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.
    The Commission strongly encourages electronic filings of comments, 
protests and interventions in lieu of paper using the ``eFiling'' link 
at https://www.ferc.gov. Persons unable to file electronically should 
submit an original and 5 copies of the protest or intervention to the 
Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, 
DC 20426.
