Description of Proceeding: On March 1, 2019, the Wisconsin River Power Company, licensee for the Petenwell and Castle Rock Project No. 1984, and the Wisconsin Power & Light Company, licensee for the Prairie du Sac Project No. 11162, filed requests to extend the license terms for their respective projects located in the southern sub-basin of the Wisconsin River. Currently, the 30-year license for the Petenwell and Castle Rock Project expires on November 30, 2031 and the 30-year license for the Prairie du Sac Project expires on May 31, 2032. The licensees seek Commission approval to extend the license terms for the two projects so they expire on June 30, 2041. The licensees say the extensions would assist with the comprehensive study and analysis of the projects’ cumulative environmental impact and would reduce stakeholder burden by integrating the relicensing consultation process. Additionally, the licensees say that aligning the license expiration dates would eliminate redundancies during relicensing for all involved parties as both projects in the southern sub-basin have similar vegetation, land cover, hydrology, and resource management concerns. The licensees’ requests are part of a broader proposal to align the license expiration dates for 20 projects on the Wisconsin River into three groupings based on each project’s location to facilitate comprehensive study and analysis and coordinate relicensing as discussed above. This public notice covers the two projects in the southern sub-basin of the Wisconsin River. The Commission is issuing two other public notices—one for eight projects in the northern sub-basin of the Wisconsin River that would align these expiration dates so they expire on June 30, 2035 and another public notice for 10 projects in the central sub-basin of the Wisconsin River that would align the license expiration dates to expire on June 30, 2038. k. This notice is available for review and reproduction at the Commission in the Public Reference Room, Room 2A, 888 First Street NE, Washington, DC PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13037 20426.
