Loup River Public Power District; Notice of Availability of Final Environmental Assessment, 45147-45148 [2016-16396]

Download as PDF 45147 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 133 / Tuesday, July 12, 2016 / Notices 23(b) requires that any person intending to construct project works on such waters must file a declaration of their intention with the Commission. If the Commission finds the proposed project will have an impact on interstate or foreign commerce, then the entity intending to construct the project must obtain a Commission license or exemption before starting construction.7 The information is collected in the form of a written application, containing sufficient details to allow the Commission staff to research the jurisdictional aspects of the project. This research includes examining maps and land ownership records to establish whether or not there is Federal jurisdiction over the lands and waters affected by the project. A finding of nonjurisdictional by the Commission eliminates a substantial paperwork burden for the applicant who might otherwise have to file for a license or exemption application. The Commission implements these filing requirements under 18 CFR part 24. Type of Respondents: Persons intending to construct project works on certain waters described above. Estimate of Annual Burden: The Commission estimates the annual public reporting burden for the information collection as: FERC–515—RULES OF PRACTICE AND PROCEDURE: DECLARATION OF INTENTION Number of respondents Annual number of responses per respondent Total number of responses Average burden hours & cost per response Total annual burden hours & total annual cost Cost per respondent ($) (1) (2) (1)*(2)=(3) (4) (3)*(4)=(5) (5)÷(1) 6 1 6 80 hrs.; $5,960 480 hrs.; $35,760 $5,960 FERC–574, Gas Pipeline Certificates: Hinshaw Exemption OMB Control No.: 1902–0116. Type of Request: Three-year extension of the FERC–574 information collection requirements with no changes to the current reporting requirements. Abstract: The Commission uses the information collected under the requirements of FERC–574 to implement the statutory provisions of sections 1(c), 4 and 7 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA).8 Natural gas pipeline companies file applications with the Commission furnishing information in order to facilitate a determination of an applicant’s qualification for an exemption under the provisions of the section 1(c). If the Commission grants exemption, the natural gas pipeline company is not required to file certificate applications, rate schedules, or any other applications or forms prescribed by the Commission. The exemption applies to companies engaged in the transportation, sale, or resale of natural gas in interstate commerce if: (a) They receive gas at or within the boundaries of the state from another person at or within the boundaries of that state; (b) such gas is ultimately consumed in such state; (c) the rates, service and facilities of such company are subject to regulation by a State Commission; and (d) that such State Commission is exercising that jurisdiction. 18 CFR part 152 specifies the data required to be filed by pipeline companies for an exemption. Type of Respondents: Pipeline companies.
