Comments, Protests, or Motions to Intervene: Anyone may submit comments, a protest, or a motion to intervene in accordance with the requirements of Rules of Practice and Procedure, 18 CFR 385.210, .211, and .214. In determining the appropriate action to take, the Commission will consider all protests or other comments filed, but only those who file a motion to intervene in accordance with the Commission’s Rules may become a party to the proceeding. Any comments, protests, or motions to intervene must be received on or before the specified comment date for the particular application. All filings must (1) bear in all capital letters the title COMMENTS, PROTEST, or MOTION TO INTERVENE as applicable; (2) set forth in the heading the name of the applicant and the project number of the application to which the filing responds; (3) furnish the name, address, and telephone number of the person protesting or PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47497 intervening; and (4) otherwise comply with the requirements of 18 CFR 385.2001 through 385.2005.

Agencies may obtain copies of the application directly from the applicant. A copy of any protest or motion to intervene must be served upon each representative of the applicant specified in the particular application. If an intervenor files comments or documents with the Commission relating to the merits of an issue that may affect the responsibilities of a particular resource agency, they must also serve a copy of the document on that resource agency. A copy of all other filings in reference to this application must be accompanied by proof of service on all persons listed in the service list prepared by the Commission in this proceeding, in accordance with 18 CFR 4.34(b) and 385.2010. o. Additional Information: The Renewal Corporation’s request to surrender and decommission the Lower Klamath Project, also filed on September 23, 2016, will be considered in a separate proceeding. The surrender, 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 (k), above, and Commission approval of the surrender application. The Renewal Corporation requests that the Commission not act on the surrender 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). 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. We are not requesting comments at this time on the surrender application. After receiving the applicants’ supplemental filing regarding a decommissioning plan, the E:\FR\FM\12OCN1.SGM 12OCN1 47498 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 196 / Thursday, October 12, 2017 / Notices Commission will issue a notice requesting comments, protests, and motions to intervene in that proceeding.

    k. Description of Amendment and Transfer Request: The applicants 
request that the Commission amend the existing Klamath Project No. 2082 
license to remove the J.C. Boyle, Copco No. 1, Copco No. 2, and Iron

Commission were to approve its surrender application in a separate 
proceeding, would then surrender the project license and remove the 
project dams. The applicants supplemented their September 23, 2016

forth the legal, technical, and financial capabilities of the Renewal 
Corporation to perform its responsibilities as transferee. Applicants

    n. Comments, Protests, or Motions to Intervene: Anyone may submit 
comments, a protest, or a motion to intervene in accordance with the 
requirements of Rules of Practice and Procedure, 18 CFR 385.210, .211, 
and .214. In determining the appropriate action to take, the Commission 
will consider all protests or other comments filed, but only those who 
file a motion to intervene in accordance with the Commission's Rules 
may become a party to the proceeding. Any comments, protests, or 
motions to intervene must be received on or before the specified 
comment date for the particular application.
    All filings must (1) bear in all capital letters the title 
COMMENTS, PROTEST, or MOTION TO INTERVENE as applicable; (2) set forth 
in the heading the name of the applicant and the project number of the 
application to which the filing responds; (3) furnish the name, 
address, and telephone number of the person protesting or intervening; 
and (4) otherwise comply with the requirements of 18 CFR 385.2001 
through 385.2005. All comments, motions to intervene, or protests must 
set forth their evidentiary basis and otherwise comply with the 
requirements of 18 CFR 4.34(b). Agencies may obtain copies of the 
application directly from the applicant. A copy of any protest or 
motion to intervene must be served upon each representative of the 
applicant specified in the particular application. If an intervenor 
files comments or documents with the Commission relating to the merits 
of an issue that may affect the responsibilities of a particular 
resource agency, they must also serve a copy of the document on that 
resource agency. A copy of all other filings in reference to this 
application must be accompanied by proof of service on all persons 
listed in the service list prepared by the Commission in this 
proceeding, in accordance with 18 CFR 4.34(b) and 385.2010.
    o. Additional Information: The Renewal Corporation's request to 
surrender and decommission the Lower Klamath Project, also filed on 
September 23, 2016, will be considered in a separate proceeding. The 
surrender, 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 (k), above, and Commission approval of the surrender 
application. The Renewal Corporation requests that the Commission not 
act on the surrender 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). 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. We are 
not requesting comments at this time on the surrender application. 
After receiving the applicants' supplemental filing regarding a 
decommissioning plan, the

[[Page 47498]]

Commission will issue a notice requesting comments, protests, and 
motions to intervene in that proceeding.
