Transco requests authorization to construct and operate certain natural gas pipeline facilities in various counties in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina to expand the natural gas delivery capacity to the northeast region of the United States by up to 525,000 dekatherms per day. The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the Leidy Southeast Expansion Project in accordance with the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The FERC staff concludes that approval of the proposed project, with appropriate mitigating measures, would not constitute a major federal action significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. On June 12, 2014, FERC issued a Notice of Schedule for Environmental Review of the Leidy Southeast Expansion Project. That notice identified the EA issuance date as August 8, 2014, with a 90-day Federal Authorization Decision Deadline of November 6, 2014 (now November 9, 2014). The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (COE) participated as cooperating agencies in the preparation of the EA. Cooperating agencies have jurisdiction by law or special expertise with respect to resources potentially affected by the proposal and participate in the NEPA analysis. The COE will use the EA as part of its review to consider the issuance of a Section 404 Clean Water Act permit. The proposed Leidy Southeast Expansion Project includes the following facilities: • About 29.8 miles of new 42-inchdiameter pipeline loop1 in four separate segments in Mercer, Somerset, and PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48739 Hunterdon Counties, New Jersey, and Monroe and Luzerne Counties, Pennsylvania; • Additional compression and modification of existing Compressor Stations 205, 515, 517, and 520 in Mercer County, New Jersey, and Luzerne, Columbia, and Lycoming Counties, Pennsylvania, respectively; • Modification of existing compressor stations in North Carolina (1 facility), Virginia (5 facilities), and Maryland (1 facility); and • Modification of existing meter and regulating stations, mainline valves, and pig launchers and receivers in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Maryland. The FERC staff mailed copies of the EA to Federal, state, and local government representatives and agencies; elected officials; environmental and public interest groups; Native American tribes; potentially affected landowners and other interested individuals and groups; newspapers and libraries in the project area; and parties to this proceeding. In addition, the EA is available for public viewing on the FERC’s Web site (www.ferc.gov) using the eLibrary link. A limited number of copies of the EA are available for distribution and public inspection at: Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Public Reference Room, 888 First Street NE., Room 2A, Washington, DC 20426, (202) 502–8371. Any person wishing to comment on the EA may do so. Your comments should focus on the potential environmental effects, reasonable alternatives, and measures to avoid or lessen environmental impacts. The more specific your comments, the more useful they will be. To ensure that the Commission has the opportunity to consider your comments prior to making its decision on this project, it is important that we receive your comments in Washington, DC on or before September 10, 2014. For your convenience, there are three methods you can use to file your comments to the Commission. In all instances, please reference the project docket number (CP13–551–000) with your submission. The Commission encourages electronic filing of comments and has expert staff available to assist you at (202) 502–8258 or efiling@ferc.gov.
