The project consists of five developments and is located on the Housatonic River in Fairfield, New Haven, and Litchfield Counties, Connecticut. One of the developments is a pumped storage facility and uses the 5,600-acre Candlewood Lake as its upper reservoir. The notice established February 25, 2019 as the deadline to file interventions.1 On February 25, 2019, Candlewood Lake Authority (Authority) filed a timely motion to intervene to become a party in the proceeding.2 It subsequently supplemented the motion on March 15, 2019. On March 7, 2019, the applicants filed an answer in opposition to the Authority’s 1 On February 11, 2019, the Commission extended the original comment period from February 2, 2019 to February 25, 2019, due to a funding lapse of certain federal agencies between December 22, 2018 and January 25, 2019. 84 FR 5077 (2019). 2 The Authority incorrectly styled its intervention as a notice of intervention under 18 CFR 385.214(a). Because the Authority does not have the right to become a party in a proceeding by filing a notice of intervention, its intervention is treated as a motion to intervene in accordance to 18 CFR 214(a)(3). See also 18 CFR 385.214(a)(2) (2018) (providing ‘‘Any State Commission . . . any state fish and wildlife, water quality certification, or water rights agency . . . is a party to any proceeding upon filing a notice of intervention in that proceeding, if the notice is filed within the period established under Rule 210(b)’’); Conn.
