Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 95 / Thursday, May 18, 2017 / Notices Background Section 57b.(2) of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, is implemented through the DOE/NNSA regulations under Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 810 (Part 810) governing exports of unclassified nuclear technology and assistance. Applicants seeking specific authorizations to transfer or provide any such technology or assistance must make an application to DOE, and those who are transferring or providing such technology or assistance must provide regular reports to DOE. In response to public comment, DOE/NNSA is pursuing a number of efforts to improve the Part 810 authorization process collectively known as a Process Improvement Plan (PIP) to make the Part 810 authorization process more transparent, orderly, and efficient. One of the main components of the PIP was to develop an electronic application and reporting database (which DOE has called ‘‘e810’’). e810 was designed to ease the application and reporting burden on industry, streamline the review process for specific authorization applications, and provide greater transparency into the authorization process and timelines. The e810 database is now available for use. The Web site is: e810.energy.gov. Prospective users may register for an account at that site. Use of the e810 site for Part 810 communications is strictly optional; the email and paper communication options listed at 10 CFR 810.4 remain available. However, we encourage its use as continued upgrades to the e810 database will further enhance and streamline the Part 810 authorization process. Early use will allow users to take full advantage of those features as they come on line. Dated: April 21, 2017. For the Department of Energy.

I. Statutory Authority Reclamation Laws are a series of laws arising from the Desert Land Act of 1877 and include, but are not limited to, the Desert Land Act of 1877, Reclamation Act of 1902, Reclamation Project Act of 1939, and the Acts authorizing each individual project such as the Central Valley Project Authorizing Act of 1937.1 The Reclamation Act of 1902 established the Federal reclamation program.2 The basic principle of the Reclamation Act of 1902 was that the United States, through the Secretary of the Interior, would build and operate irrigation works from the proceeds of public land sales in the sixteen arid Western states (a seventeenth was later added). The Reclamation Project Act of 1939 expanded the purposes of the reclamation program and specified certain terms for contracts that the Secretary of the Interior enters into to furnish water and power.3 Congress enacted the Reclamation Laws for purposes that include enhancing navigation, protection from floods, reclaiming the arid lands in the Western United States, and for fish and wildlife.4 Congress intended the production of power would be a supplemental feature of the multi-purpose water projects authorized under the Reclamation Laws.5 No contract entered into by the United States for power may, in the judgment of the Secretary, impair the efficiency of the project for irrigation purposes.6 Section 5 of the Flood Control Act of 1944 is read in pari materia with Reclamation Laws with respect to the WAPA.7 In 1977, the Department of Energy Organization Act transferred the power marketing functions of the Department of the Interior to the Secretary of Energy, acting by and through a separate Administrator for WAPA.8 Pursuant to this authority, WAPA markets Federal hydropower.

II. This Process Determines the Format of the APD and Is Not a Call for 
Applications

    This public process and the associated Federal Register notice only 
determine the information that WAPA will collect from an entity 
desiring to apply for a Federal power allocation. This public process 
is a legal requirement that WAPA must comply with before WAPA can 
request information from potential preference customers. This public 
process is not the process whereby interested parties request an 
allocation of Federal power. The actual allocation of power is outside 
the scope of this proceeding. Please do not submit a request for 
Federal power in this process. Later, through a separate process, WAPA 
will issue a call for applications, as part of its project-specific 
marketing plans. When WAPA issues a call for applications, the 
information WAPA proposes to collect is voluntary. WAPA will use the 
information collected, in conjunction with its project-specific 
marketing plans, to determine an entity's eligibility and ultimately 
which entity will receive an allocation of Federal power.

III. Invitation for Comments

    WAPA intends to extend and reuse the APD form under the OMB control 
number to September 30, 2020. Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the 
extended collection of information is necessary for the proper 
performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the 
information shall have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the 
agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of 
information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions 
used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the 
collection of information on respondents, including the use of 
automated electronic, mechanical or other collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology.
