AGENCY: Western Area Power Administration (Western), an agency of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), intends to prepare a Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (SDEIS) for the interconnection of NextEra Energy Resources’ proposed Wilton IV Wind Energy Center Project (Project), Burleigh County, North Dakota.

Based on substantial changes to the proposed Project, Western has made the decision to prepare an SDEIS. These changes include the relocation of 30 planned turbine locations and 5 alternate turbine locations in Crofte Township, and moving them as far as 12 miles northeast to Rock Hill Township. Additionally, up to 20 miles of new overhead transmission line will be necessary to connect the Project collector substation to the existing Wilton/Baldwin substation. Portions of the proposed Project may affect floodplains and wetlands, so this NOI also serves as a notice of proposed floodplain or wetland action in accordance with DOE floodplain and wetland environmental review requirements. DATES: A public scoping meeting will be held on December 11, 2013, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Wilton Memorial Hall, located at 105 Dakota Avenue, Wilton, North Dakota. Local notification of this meeting has been made through direct mailings to affected parties and by advertising in local media to ensure a minimum of 15 days of prior notice. The public scoping period starts with the publication of this notice and ends on December 20, 2013. Western will consider all comments on the scope of the SDEIS received or postmarked by tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:04 Nov 19, 2013 Jkt 232001 that date. However, the public is invited to submit comments on the proposed Project at any time during the SDEIS process.
