The sole purpose of a preliminary permit, if issued, is to grant the permit holder priority to file a license application during the permit term. A preliminary permit does not authorize the permit holder to perform any land-disturbing activities or otherwise enter upon lands or waters owned by others without the owners’ express permission. The proposed project will be closedloop. Water to initially fill the reservoirs and required make-up water will be pumped from the Columbia River via an existing pumphouse. The proposed project would consist of an upper and PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60593 lower reservoir, an underground water conveyance system connecting the two reservoirs, an underground powerhouse, and a transmission line. The lower reservoir would be formed by a 7,400foot-long, 170-foot-high rockfill embankment, with storage capacity of 7,100 acre-feet at maximum water surface elevation of 580 feet and surface area of 62 acres. The upper reservoir would be formed by an 8,000-foot-long, 170-foot-high rockfill embankment, with storage capacity of 7,100 acre-feet at maximum water surface elevation of 2,940 feet and surface area of 59 acres. Water would be conveyed from the upper reservoir to the lower reservoir via a 5,000-foot-long, concrete and steel tunnel with internal diameters ranging from 20 to 29 feet, and a 600-foot-long, 15-foot-diameter steel/concrete penstock. The powerhouse would contain three, 400-megawatt (MW) Francis-type pump-turbine units for a total installed capacity of 1,200 MW. Project power would be transmitted through a new 5-mile-long, 500-kilovolt transmission line from the powerhouse to Bonneville Power Administration’s John Day Substation. The estimated averaged annual generation of the project would be 3,500 gigawatt-hours.

ACTION: Errata and comment request. AGENCY: In compliance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission or FERC) is submitting the information collection FERC–725U (Mandatory Reliability Standards: Reliability Standard CIP–014) to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review of the information collection requirements. Any interested person may file comments directly with OMB and should address a copy of those comments to the Commission as explained below. The Commission published notices in the Federal Register (82 FR 41618, 9/1/2017, and 82 FR 50645, 11/1/2017) requesting public comments. FERC received no comments on the FERC–725U for either notice and is making this notation in its submittal to OMB.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Titles: Mandatory Reliability Standards: Reliability Standard CIP– 014. OMB Control Nos.: 1902–0274. Type of Request: Three-year extension of the FERC–725U information collection requirements with no changes to the reporting or recordkeeping requirements. Abstract: Two previous notices proposing the extension of FERC–725U were published in the Federal Register.1 The total annual burden presented in those notices was incorrect and based on faulty approaches for calculating burden estimates. This 30-day errata/ notice corrects the total annual burden estimates and explains changes in calculation of the annual burden estimates. The burden for the FERC–725U information collection is estimated based on the five year cycle of the requirements in the Reliability Standard. Over this five-year cycle, annual burden levels fluctuate greatly based on which reporting requirements are implicated each year. FERC extensions usually request three years of extension/approval. However, using a three-year timespan to calculate the burden would cause the total annual burden to fluctuate in an unrepresentative way because of the mathematical mismatch between the Reliability Standard’s five-year cycle and the three-year PRA cycle for OMB approval. Some extension requests would propose inordinately high or low burden solely dependent on the timing of the request, not on any actual changes to reporting requirements. In order to provide the annual burden estimate in a more representative way, Commission staff is calculating the average annual burden using the fiveyear cycle of the Standard and using that average for Years 1–3 of this extension. Types of Respondents: Intrastate natural gas and Hinshaw pipelines. Estimate of Annual Burden: 2 The Commission estimates the total Public Reporting Burden for the FERC–725U information collection as: FERC–725U: MANDATORY RELIABILITY STANDARDS: RELIABILITY STANDARD CIP–014 3 Number and type of respondents daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Year 1: Record Retention ......................
