PacifiCorp Energy; Notice of Application Accepted for Filing and Soliciting Motions To Intervene and Protests, 57545-57546 [2014-22795]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 186 / Thursday, September 25, 2014 / Notices 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 7 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:25 Sep 24, 2014 Jkt 232001 project should submit an original and two copies of their comments to the Secretary of the Commission. Environmental commenter’s 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 commenter’s will not be required to serve copies of filed documents on all other parties. However, the non-party commentary, 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 http:// 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. See, 18 CFR 385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the Commission’s Web site under the ‘‘e-Filing’’ link. Comment Date: October 6, 2014. Dated: September 15, 2014. Kimberly D. Bose, Secretary.

This application has been accepted, but is not ready for environmental analysis at this time. l. Project Description: The existing Wallowa Falls Hydroelectric Project consists of the following existing facilities: (1) A 2-foot-high, 9-foot-long concrete diversion dam with a 1-footwide spillway on Royal Purple Creek; (2) a 240-foot-long, 8-inch-diameter wood-stave and polyvinylchloride pipeline conveying water from the Royal Purple Creek diversion dam to a de-silting pond; (3) an 18-foot-high, 125foot-long, buttressed rock-filled timber crib dam with impervious gravel and asphalt core and a 30-foot-wide spillway on the East Fork Wallowa River; (4) a 0.2-acre de-silting pond; (5) a 2-foothigh by 2-foot-wide concrete intake structure with a headgate and steel trash rack; (6) a low-level sluiceway with a steel trash rack and cast iron gate connecting to a 2-foot-diameter steel pipe passing through the dam to provide instream flow releases to the bypassed E:\FR\FM\25SEN1.SGM 25SEN1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 57546 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 186 / Thursday, September 25, 2014 / Notices reach; (7) a 5,688-foot-long steel penstock varying in diameter from 24 to 16 inches and consisting of buried sections or above-ground sections supported on timber crib trestles; (8) a powerhouse containing one impulse turbine-generator unit with an installed capacity of 1,100 kilowatts; (9) a 40-footlong concrete-lined tailrace which conveys powerhouse flows to a 1,000foot-long unlined and braided tailrace channel discharging into the West Fork Wallowa River; (10) a 20-foot-long, 7.2kilovolt transmission line which connects to the Wallowa Falls substation; and (11) appurtenant facilities. The project is operated run-of-river. Up to 1 cubic feet per second (cfs) of flow is diverted from Royal Purple Creek and discharged into the de-silting pond. Up to 16 cfs of water (i.e., 15 cfs maximum from East Fork Wallowa River and 1 cfs from Royal Purple Creek) is diverted through the intake structure at the East Fork Wallow River dam into the steel penstock and conveyed to the powerhouse where it flows through the single impulse turbine and discharges through the tailrace into the West Fork Wallowa River. The project’s current license requires a minimum instream flow release of 0.5 cfs or inflow, whichever is less, in the bypassed reach. The current license also mandates that PacifiCorp restrict sediment flushing from the de-silting pond to the period from May 1 to August 30 to protect kokanee salmon. PacifiCorp proposes to modify the existing facilities by constructing a buried 30-inch-diameter, 1,000-foot-long pipe and rerouting powerhouse flows from the current discharge location in the West Fork to the East Fork Wallowa River. PacifiCorp also proposes to: Increase the minimum flow release in the bypassed reach to 4 cfs or inflow, whichever is less; modify the sediment management program to only enable sediment flushing during the high-flow month of June; upgrade the instream flow compliance monitoring equipment in the bypassed reach; upgrade recreational facilities at the non-project Pacific Park Campground; and install new signage and interpretive displays at the project. PacifiCorp proposes to amend the project boundary by adding 28.3 acres to incorporate the Pacific Park Campground, forebay access road, buried tailrace pipe, and other new project features. m.
