In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (Commission or FERC) regulations, 18 CFR pt. 380, the Office of Energy Projects has reviewed Lockhart Power Company, Inc.’s application for license for the Riverdale Hydroelectric Project (FERC Project No. 13590–001), located on the Enoree River, near the town of Enoree, in Spartanburg and Laurens Counties, South Carolina. The project does not occupy federal lands. Staff prepared a final environmental assessment (FEA), which analyzes the potential environmental effects of licensing the project, and concludes that licensing the project, with appropriate environmental protective measures, would not constitute a major federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment.

This notice is being sent to the Commission’s current environmental mailing list for this project. State and local government representatives should notify their constituents of this proposed project and encourage them to comment on their areas of concern. ANR provided landowners with a fact sheet prepared by the FERC entitled ‘‘An Interstate Natural Gas Facility On My Land? What Do I Need To Know?’’ This fact sheet addresses a number of typically-asked questions, including the use of eminent domain and how to participate in the Commission’s proceedings. It is also available for viewing on the FERC Web site (www.ferc.gov). Summary of the Proposed Project ANR proposes to construct and operate one new compressor unit and appurtenant facilities at its existing Sulphur Springs Compressor Station in Henry County, Indiana. The Sulphur Springs Compression Project would provide about 133.6 million standard cubic feet of natural gas per day to ANR’s wholly owned portion of the Lebanon Lateral which connects the Glen Karn meter facilities in Darke County, Ohio to the Sulphur Springs Compressor Station. E:\FR\FM\21AUN1.SGM 21AUN1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 162 / Thursday, August 21, 2014 / Notices According to ANR, its project would increase reverse flow capability on its system and provide greater reliability, flexibility, and security to existing shippers. The Sulphur Springs Compression Project consists of the following facilities: • An approximately 10,915 horsepower Solar Taurus 70 turbine with C65 compressor; • exhaust silencer, air inlet filtration, and lube oil cooling equipment; • two high pressure gas coolers; • high-pressure gas filter/separator; • associated piping, valves, fittings, regulators, cables, conduits, overhead cable trays, cathodic protection devices, parking areas, and access road; • compressor building to house the new turbine; • control building; • natural gas-fired boiler; and • aboveground storage tanks. The general location of the project facilities is shown in appendix 1.1 Land Requirements for Construction Construction of the proposed aboveground facilities would disturb about 24.3 acres of open and industrial/ commercial land owned by ANR. Of this total, approximately 1.1 acres would be permanently impacted to accommodate the new facilities.

ANR Pipeline Company; Notice of Intent To Prepare an 
Environmental Assessment for the Proposed Sulphur Springs Compression 
Project and Request for Comments on Environmental Issues

August 15, 2014.
    The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or 
Commission) will prepare an environmental assessment (EA) that will 
discuss the environmental impacts of the Sulphur Springs Compression 
Project involving construction and operation of facilities by ANR 
Pipeline Company (ANR) in Henry County, Indiana. The Commission will 
use this EA in its decision-making process to determine whether the 
project is in the public convenience and necessity.
    This notice announces the opening of the scoping process the 
Commission will use to gather input from the public and interested 
agencies on the project. Your input will help the Commission staff 
determine what issues they need to evaluate in the EA. Please note that 
the scoping period will close on September 15, 2014.
    This notice is being sent to the Commission's current environmental 
mailing list for this project. State and local government 
representatives should notify their constituents of this proposed 
project and encourage them to comment on their areas of concern.
    ANR provided landowners with a fact sheet prepared by the FERC 
entitled ``An Interstate Natural Gas Facility On My Land? What Do I 
Need To Know?'' This fact sheet addresses a number of typically-asked 
questions, including the use of eminent domain and how to participate 
in the Commission's proceedings. It is also available for viewing on 
the FERC Web site (www.ferc.gov).

Summary of the Proposed Project

    ANR proposes to construct and operate one new compressor unit and 
appurtenant facilities at its existing Sulphur Springs Compressor 
Station in Henry County, Indiana. The Sulphur Springs Compression 
Project would provide about 133.6 million standard cubic feet of 
natural gas per day to ANR's wholly owned portion of the Lebanon 
Lateral which connects the Glen Karn meter facilities in Darke County, 
Ohio to the Sulphur Springs Compressor Station.

[[Page 49509]]

    According to ANR, its project would increase reverse flow 
capability on its system and provide greater reliability, flexibility, 
and security to existing shippers.
    The Sulphur Springs Compression Project consists of the following 
facilities:
     An approximately 10,915 horsepower Solar Taurus 70 turbine 
with C65 compressor;
     exhaust silencer, air inlet filtration, and lube oil 
cooling equipment;
     two high pressure gas coolers;
     high-pressure gas filter/separator;
     associated piping, valves, fittings, regulators, cables, 
conduits, overhead cable trays, cathodic protection devices, parking 
areas, and access road;
     compressor building to house the new turbine;
     control building;
     natural gas-fired boiler; and
     aboveground storage tanks.
    The general location of the project facilities is shown in appendix 
1.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The appendices referenced in this notice will not appear in 
the Federal Register. Copies of appendices were sent to all those 
receiving this notice in the mail and are available at www.ferc.gov 
using the link called ``eLibrary'' or from the Commission's Public 
Reference Room, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426, or call 
(202) 502-8371. For instructions on connecting to eLibrary, refer to 
the last page of this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Land Requirements for Construction

    Construction of the proposed aboveground facilities would disturb 
about 24.3 acres of open and industrial/commercial land owned by ANR. 
Of this total, approximately 1.1 acres would be permanently impacted to 
accommodate the new facilities. Remaining disturbed areas would be 
revegetated or otherwise returned to pre-existing conditions.

The EA Process

    The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requires the 
Commission to take into account the environmental impacts that could 
result from an action whenever it considers the issuance of a 
Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity. NEPA also requires us 
\2\ to discover and address concerns the public may have about 
proposals. This process is referred to as ``scoping.'' The main goal of 
the scoping process is to focus the analysis in the EA on the important 
environmental issues. By this notice, the Commission requests public 
comments on the scope of the issues to address in the EA. We will 
consider all filed comments during the preparation of the EA.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ ``We,'' ``us,'' and ``our'' refer to the environmental staff 
of the Commission's Office of Energy Projects.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the EA we will discuss impacts that could occur as a result of 
the construction and operation of the proposed project under these 
general headings:
     Geology and soils;
     land use;
     water use and quality;
     vegetation and wildlife;
     air quality and noise;
     public safety; and
     cumulative impacts.
    We will also evaluate reasonable alternatives to the proposed 
project or portions of the project, and make recommendations on how to 
lessen or avoid impacts on the various resource areas.
    The EA will present our independent analysis of the issues. The EA 
will be available in the public record through eLibrary. Depending on 
the comments received during the scoping process, we may also publish 
and distribute the EA to the public for an allotted comment period. We 
will consider all comments on the EA before making our recommendations 
to the Commission. To ensure we have the opportunity to consider and 
address your comments, please carefully follow the instructions in the 
Public Participation section beginning on page 4.
    With this notice, we are asking agencies with jurisdiction by law 
and/or special expertise with respect to the environmental issues of 
this project to formally cooperate with us in the preparation of the 
EA.\3\ Agencies that would like to request cooperating agency status 
should follow the instructions for filing comments provided under the
