Description of Amendment and Transfer Request: The applicants request that the Commission transfer the J.C. Boyle, Copco No. 1, Copco No. 2, and Iron Gate developments of the existing Klamath Project No. 2082 from PacifiCorp to the Klamath River Renewal Corporation (Renewal Corporation) and create a new project, the Lower Klamath Project, for the transferred developments with the Renewal Corporation as the sole licensee. PacifiCorp requests that the license for Project No. 2082 be amended to delete references to the four transferred developments. The applicants state that they will make a supplemental filing on or before March 1, 2017, demonstrating the legal, technical, and financial capabilities of the Renewal Corporation to perform its responsibilities as transferee. Applicants further request that the Commission act on the amendment and transfer PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 application by December 31, 2017, and allow the Renewal Corporation six months from the issuance date of the order approving transfer to submit proof of its acceptance of license transfer. k. Description of Surrender Request: The Renewal Corporation’s request to surrender and decommission the Lower Klamath Project, including removal of the project dams is contingent upon a Commission order amending PacifiCorp’s existing Klamath Project (P–2082) license to create a new project, the Lower Klamath Project, and transferring the Lower Klamath Project to the Renewal Corporation, as described in item (j), above. The Lower Klamath Project, as envisioned by the Renewal Corporation, would consist of the J.C. Boyle, Copco No. 1, Copco No. 2, and Iron Gate developments of the existing Klamath Project No. 2082, and the Renewal Corporation would be the sole licensee. The Renewal Corporation requests that the Commission not act on this request until it is ready to accept license transfer and states that it will file, by December 31, 2017, its decommissioning plan to serve as the basis for Commission staff’s environmental and engineering review of the surrender application. Because only a licensee may file to surrender a license and the Commission does not accept contingent applications, the surrender application is deemed to be filed by both PacifiCorp and the Renewal Corporation. See 18 CFR 6.1 and 4.32(j). Therefore, while action on the amendment and transfer application is pending, the Commission will maintain both applications in the dockets for both project numbers. If the Commission approves the transfer and the Renewal Corporation accepts the license, following which the Renewal Corporation would become the sole licensee, the surrender proceeding would continue solely in Project No. 14803. l. With this notice, we are initiating informal consultation with: (a) the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and NOAA Fisheries under section 7 of the Endangered Species Act and the joint agency implementing regulations at 50 CFR part 402; (b) NOAA Fisheries under section 305(b) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act and implementing regulations at 50 CFR 600.920; and (c) the California and Oregon State Historic Preservation Officers, as required by section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, and the implementing regulations of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation at 36 CFR part 800. m.

Energy Projects has reviewed Northern Indiana Public Service Company’s application for amendment of the license for the Norway-Oakdale Hydroelectric Project (FERC Project No. 12514–074), on the Tippecanoe River near the city of Monticello in Carroll and White Counties, Indiana, and prepared a final environmental assessment (EA) for the project. The project does not occupy any federal lands. The final EA contains staff’s analysis of the potential environmental effects of implementing the proposed modified definition of abnormal flow conditions that would be included in a revised article 403, which defines the operation of the project. Staff concludes that authorizing the amendment, with staff’s recommended modification to the definition of abnormal river conditions, would not constitute a major federal action that would significantly affect the quality of the human environment. A copy of the final EA is available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room or may be viewed on the Commission’s Web site at www.ferc.gov using the ‘‘eLibrary’’ link.

    Surrender: John Mudre: (202) 502-8902, john.mudre@ferc.gov.
    j. Description of Amendment and Transfer Request: The applicants 
request that the Commission transfer the J.C. Boyle, Copco No. 1, Copco 
No. 2, and Iron Gate developments of the existing Klamath Project No. 
2082 from PacifiCorp to the Klamath River Renewal Corporation (Renewal 
Corporation) and create a new project, the Lower Klamath Project, for 
the transferred developments with the Renewal Corporation as the sole 
licensee. PacifiCorp requests that the license for Project No. 2082 be 
amended to delete references to the four transferred developments. The 
applicants state that they will make a supplemental filing on or before 
March 1, 2017, demonstrating the legal, technical, and financial 
capabilities of the Renewal Corporation to perform its responsibilities 
as transferee. Applicants further request that the Commission act on 
the amendment and transfer application by December 31, 2017, and allow 
the Renewal Corporation six months from the issuance date of the order 
approving transfer to submit proof of its acceptance of license 
transfer.
    k. Description of Surrender Request: The Renewal Corporation's 
request to surrender and decommission the Lower Klamath Project, 
including removal of the project dams is contingent upon a Commission 
order amending PacifiCorp's existing Klamath Project (P-2082) license 
to create a new project, the Lower Klamath Project, and transferring 
the Lower Klamath Project to the Renewal Corporation, as described in 
item (j), above. The Lower Klamath Project, as envisioned by the 
Renewal Corporation, would consist of the J.C. Boyle, Copco No. 1, 
Copco No. 2, and Iron Gate developments of the existing Klamath Project 
No. 2082, and the Renewal Corporation would be the sole licensee. The 
Renewal Corporation requests that the Commission not act on this 
request until it is ready to accept license transfer and states that it 
will file, by December 31, 2017, its decommissioning plan to serve as 
the basis for Commission staff's environmental and engineering review 
of the surrender application. Because only a licensee may file to 
surrender a license and the Commission does not accept contingent 
applications, the surrender application is deemed to be filed by both 
PacifiCorp and the Renewal Corporation. See 18 CFR 6.1 and 4.32(j). 
Therefore, while action on the amendment and transfer application is 
pending, the Commission will maintain both applications in the dockets 
for both project numbers. If the Commission approves the transfer and 
the Renewal Corporation accepts the license, following which the 
Renewal Corporation would become the sole licensee, the surrender 
proceeding would continue solely in Project No. 14803.
    l. With this notice, we are initiating informal consultation with: 
(a) the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and NOAA Fisheries under section 
7 of the Endangered Species Act and the joint agency implementing 
regulations at 50 CFR part 402; (b) NOAA Fisheries under section 305(b)

implementing regulations at 50 CFR 600.920; and (c) the California and 
Oregon State Historic Preservation Officers, as required by section 106 
of the National Historic Preservation Act, and the implementing 
regulations of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation at 36 CFR 
part 800.
