The petitioner asserts that the proposed alternative method will at all times guarantee no less than the same measure of protection afforded the miners by the existing standard. Docket Number: M–2014–030–C. Petitioner: M-Class Mining, LLC, 11351 N. Thompsonville Road, Macedonia, Illinois 62860. Mine: MC#1 Mine, MSHA I.D. No. 11– 03189, located in Franklin County, Illinois. Regulation Affected: 30 CFR 75.507– 1(a) (Electric equipment other than power-connection points; outby the last open crosscut return air; permissibility requirements). Modification Request: The petitioner requests a modification of the existing standard to permit the use of nonpermissible submersible deep well pumps in bleeder and return air courses. The petitioner proposes to install lowvoltage alternating current submersible pumps in return and/or bleeder entries and sealed area of the MC#1Mine. The petitioner states that: (1) These low-voltage submersible pumps will provide a pumping option to the existing turbine pumps that are installed to maintain the bleeder and return entries from obstructions caused by water. Water accumulations in these airways can pose a safety hazard as they can affect the airflow in the active and inactive parts of the mine. (2) The pumps may be installed between 600 and 1,200 feet below the surface. (3) The three-phase low-voltage alternating current electric power circuits for the pumps will be designed and installed to: (a) Contain either a direct or derived neutral wire, which must be grounded through a suitable resistor at the source transformer or power center and through a grounding circuit originating at the grounded side of the grounding resistor, which must extend along with the power conductors and serve as the grounding conductor for the frame of the pump and all associated electric equipment that may be supplied power from this circuit. The borehole casing will be bonded to the system grounded medium. (b) Contain a grounding resistor that limits the ground-fault current to not more than 15 amperes. The grounding resistor will be rated for the maximum fault current available and will be insulated from ground for a voltage equal to the phase-to-phase voltage of the system. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Oct 29, 2014 Jkt 235001 (c) Provide protection by a suitable circuit breaker of adequate interrupting capacity with devices to protect against undervoltage, grounded phase, shortcircuit, and overload. (d) Contain a disconnecting device installed in conjunction with the circuit breaker to provide visual evidence that the power is disconnected. (e) Include a fail-safe ground check circuit or other no less effective device approved by the Secretary as required by 30 CFR 75.902, that will cause the circuit breaker to open when either the ground or pilot wire is broken. (4) The pump(s) electric control circuits will be designed and installed so that: (a) The pump(s) cannot start and/or run in either the manual or the automatic mode if the water is below the low level indicator (probe or bubbler) level. (b) The low level (probe or bubbler) water level probe will be located at least three feet above the pump inlet and motor and electrical connections of the pump(s). (c) The high and low water probes must be suitable for submersible pump control application. (d) All water level probe circuits will be protected with MSHA approved intrinsically safe barriers. (e) A remote control and monitoring system may be used with the pump system for condition monitoring and for remote start-up and shutdown control of the pumps. The remote control and monitoring system will not allow remote reset of the pump power system when fault conditions (e.g., grounded phase, short circuit, or overload) exist on the system. (5) The surface pump(s) control and power circuits will be examined, tested, and maintained as required by 30 CFR 77.502. (6) Splices and connections made in submersible pump cable will be made in a workmanlike manner and will meet the requirements of 30 CFR 75.604. The pump installations will comply with all other applicable 30 CFR requirements. (7) Within 60 days after the Proposed Decision and Order becomes final, the petitioner will submit proposed revisions for its approved part 48 training plan to the District Manager. The proposed revisions will specify task training for all qualified electricians who perform electric work and monthly electric examinations, testing and maintenance as required in 30 CFR 77.502, refresher training regarding the alternative method outlined in the petition, and the terms and conditions in the Proposed Decision and Order. PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 64627 (8) The procedures of 30 CFR 48.3 for approval of proposed revisions to already approved training plans will apply. The petitioner asserts that the proposed alternative method will at all times guarantee no less than the same measure of protection afforded the miners by the existing standard.

The algae sampling is to also follow up on previous surveys, to examine the temporal stability of lake algal communities in the region. Soil samples of approximately 600 grams each would be collected at up to 30 sites within the ASPA using sterile collecting techniques. For benthic algae, at 6 sites along the shore of Poly Lake, the applicant and team would use a sanitized 2cm copper coring apparatus to collect, by hand, 4 replicates of surface algal mats and 1–2 cm of underlying sediment. Samples would be transported back to the US for further study. Location: ASPA 121 Cape Royds. Dates: January 1, 2015–February 15, 2015. Nadene G.
