Background and related filings: On September 30, 2013, Erie Boulevard Hydropower, L.P. (Erie) filed an application for a subsequent license for the Hogansburg Project. On November 19, 2013, the Commission issued a notice of application accepted for filing, soliciting motions to intervene and protests, ready for environmental analysis, and soliciting comments, recommendations, preliminary terms and conditions, and preliminary fishway prescriptions. On November 27, 2013, Erie and the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe (Tribe) filed a joint application for transfer of the project license to the Tribe and a motion to suspend the ongoing relicensing proceeding. That same day, the Tribe (as a presumed transferee) filed an application for surrender of the license and decommissioning and removal of the dam. On December 30, 2013, Commission staff granted the request to suspend the relicensing proceeding pending a determination on the license transfer and surrender applications. The Commission has not yet accepted the transfer and surrender applications for filing or issued notices seeking public comment on them. On March 7, 2014, the Tribe filed an offer of settlement in support of the joint application for transfer of the license to the Tribe and the Tribe’s application for surrender of the license and decommissioning and removal of the dam. Parties to the settlement are the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, U.S. Department of the Interior’s Fish and Wildlife Service and Bureau of Indian Affairs, New York State Council of Trout Unlimited, and the Tribe. Erie is not a party to the settlement. e. All local, state, and federal agencies, Indian tribes, and other interested entities are invited to participate in the conference by phone.
