Description of Request: The licensee requests Commission approval to grant Placer County Water Agency (PCWA) permission to use project lands within the project boundary to construct and operate a raw water intake on South Canal in order to meet PCWA’s water supply demands for western Placer County. The water withdrawn from the project would be done in accordance with an existing water supply agreement between the licensee and PCWA, which obligates the licensee to provide a certain volume of water to PCWA for purchase. The raw water intake on South Canal would withdraw a maximum of 62 million gallons of water per day and serve as a redundant withdrawal location to other withdrawal points within the project that are operated by PCWA. Because of this redundancy, water withdrawn via the intake would not increase the amount of water currently withdrawn from the project area. Construction activities within the project boundary would include installation of the intake structure, which would be recessed into the canal, and outfitted with an inclined trash rack and three five- foot slide gates. The velocity through the trash rack on the intake structure would not exceed 0.8 feet per second. The intake structure would connect to three existing 60-inch steel pipes. Additionally, storm drain facilities located near one of PCWA’s transfer basins, located on the bank side of South Canal, would be restored following construction of the intake. This work would entail repairs to the concrete walls and restoration of an existing drainage inlet and manhole. l.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: FERC–740, Availability of E-Tag Information to Commission Staff. OMB Control No.: 1902–0254. Type of Request: Three-year extension of the FERC–740 information collection requirements with no changes to the current reporting and recordkeeping requirements. Abstract: In Order 771,1 the FERC– 740 information collection (providing Commission staff access to e-Tag data) was implemented to provide the Commission, Market Monitoring Units, Regional Transmission Organizations, and Independent System Operators with information that allows them to perform market surveillance and analysis more effectively. The e-Tag information is necessary to understand the use of the interconnected electricity grid, particularly transactions occurring at interchanges. Due to the nature of the electric grid, an individual transaction’s impact on an interchange cannot be assessed adequately in all cases without information from all connected systems, which is included in the e-Tags. The details of the physical path of a transaction included in the e-Tags helps the Commission to monitor, in particular, interchange transactions more effectively, detect and prevent price manipulation over interchanges, and improve the efficient and orderly use of the transmission grid. For example, the e-Tag data allows the Commission to identify transmission reservations as they go from one market to another and link the market participants involved in that transaction. Order No. 771 provided the Commission access to e-Tags by requiring that Purchasing-Selling Entities 2 (PSEs) and Balancing 1 Order 771 was issued in Docket No. RM11–12 (77 FR 76367, 12/28/2012). 2 A Purchasing-Selling Entity is the entity that purchases or sells, and takes title to, energy, capacity, and Interconnected Operations Services.
