CP15–22–000; CP15–24–000] tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Dominion Transmission, Inc.; Notice of Availability of the Environmental Assessment for the Proposed St. Charles Transportation and Keys Energy Projects The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or Commission) has prepared an environmental assessment (EA) for the St. Charles Transportation and Keys Energy Projects (Projects), proposed by Dominion Transmission, Inc. (Dominion) in the above-referenced docket. The projects involve installation of two new compressors at the Pleasant Valley Compressor Station in Fairfax County, VA and appurtenant facilities that would provide incremental firm transportation to proposed power plants in Charles and Prince George’s Counties, Maryland, respectively. The EA assesses the potential environmental effects of the construction and operation of the Projects 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. The FERC staff mailed copies of the EA to federal, state, and local VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:15 Jun 25, 2015 Jkt 235001 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.

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 July 20, 2015. 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 numbers (CP15–22–000 or CP15– 24–000) with your submission.

Simply filing environmental comments will not give you intervenor status, but you do not need intervenor status to have your comments considered.

The following are some examples of information required from petitioners under 40 CFR part 260. Under 40 CFR 260.20(b), all rulemaking petitioners must submit basic information with their demonstrations, including name, address, and statement of interest in the proposed action. Under § 260.21, all petitioners for equivalent testing or analytical methods must include specific information in their petitions and demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Administrator that the proposed method is equal to, or superior to, the corresponding method in terms of its sensitivity, accuracy, and reproducibility. Under § 260.22, petitions to amend part 261 to exclude a waste produced at a particular facility (more simply, to delist a waste) must meet extensive informational requirements. When a petition is submitted, the Agency reviews materials, deliberates, publishes its tentative decision in the Federal Register, and requests public comment. EPA also may hold informal public hearings (if requested by an interested person or at the discretion of the Administrator) to hear oral comments on its tentative decision. After evaluating all comments, EPA publishes its final decision in the Federal Register. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Regulated businesses/industries. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (RCRA 7004(a)). Estimated number of respondents: 26,041 (total). Frequency of response: On occasion. Total estimated burden: 484,789 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $78,895,502 (per year), includes $51,648,460 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase of 346,943 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase is due to the consolidation of ICRs 2127.03, 2455.01, and 2421.04 into this ICR 1189.26. The base ICR had a decrease of 8,192 hours, which is due to estimates gathered from the regulated community. This increase is also due to combining the burden E:\FR\FM\26JNN1.SGM 26JNN1
