This application has been accepted for filing and is now ready for environmental analysis. The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) issued a final rule on July 15, 2020, revising the regulations under 40 CFR parts 1500–1518 that federal agencies use to implement the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (see Update to the Regulations Implementing the Procedural Provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act, 85 FR 43304). The Final Rule became effective on and applies to any NEPA process begun after September 14, 2020. Commission staff intends to conduct its NEPA review in accordance with CEQ’s new regulations. l. Project Description: The existing Cocheco Falls Dam Project consists of: (1) A 150-foot-long, 13.5-foot-high stone masonry arch dam that includes the following sections: (a) A 4-foot-long left abutment section; (b) a 140-foot-long spillway section with 24-inch-high flashboards, a 5-foot-wide, 10-foot-high low-level outlet gate, and a crest elevation of 36.25 feet National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (NGVD29) at the top of the flashboards; and (c) a 6-footlong right abutment section with a 4foot-wide, 9-foot-high debris sluice gate; (2) an impoundment with a surface area of 20 acres and a storage capacity of 150 acre-feet at an elevation of 36.25 feet NGVD29; (3) a 64-foot-wide, 10-foothigh intake structure equipped with a trashrack with 1-inch clear bar spacing; (4) an 8.5-foot-diameter, 184-foot-long gated steel penstock that trifurcates into three 5-foot-diameter, 8-foot-long sections, each controlled by a 5-footdiameter butterfly valve; (5) a 40-footlong, 40-foot-wide concrete and brick masonry powerhouse containing three 238-kilowatt (kW) vertical Flygt submersible turbine-generator units for a total installed capacity of 714 kW; (6) VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:34 Aug 17, 2021 Jkt 253001 a 40-foot-long, 40-foot-wide tailrace that discharges into the Cocheco River; (7) a 0.48/34.5-kilovolt (kV) step-up transformer and a 1,000-foot-long, 34.5kV underground transmission line that connects the project to the local utility distribution system; and (8) appurtenant facilities. CFA voluntarily operates the project in a run-of-river mode using an automatic pond level control system to regulate turbine operation, such that outflow from the project approximates inflow. The project creates an approximately 200-foot-long bypassed reach of the Cocheco River. Downstream fish passage is provided by a bypass facility located on the left side of the dam that consist of a 5.6-footwide, 7-foot-long fish collection box, a trashrack with 6-inch clear bar spacing, and a 24-inch-diameter PVC fish passage pipe. Upstream fish passage is provided by a Denil fish ladder located on the right side of the dam. The Denil fish ladder is owned and maintained by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, and is not a project facility. Article 25 of the current license, as amended on September 24, 2002, requires a minimum flow release to the bypassed reach of: (1) 20 cubic feet per second (cfs) through the fish ladder from April 15–June 30; (2) 20 cfs through the trash sluiceway from April 15–June 15, to attract anadromous fish to the fish ladder; and (3) 20 cfs through the downstream fish passage facility from April 15 until ice forms on the river. The average annual energy production from 2014 to 2018 was 1,438 megawatt-hours. CFA proposes to: (1) Continue to operate the project in a run-of-river mode; (2) continue to facilitate upstream and downstream fish passage by providing the minimum flows required by the current license; (3) design and install an upstream eel passage facility within 4 years of the effective date of a subsequent license; and (4) consult with the New Hampshire State Historic Preservation Officer before beginning any land-disturbing activities or alterations to known historic structures within the project boundary. m.

    k. This application has been accepted for filing and is now ready 
for environmental analysis.
    The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) issued a final rule on 
July 15, 2020, revising the regulations under 40 CFR parts 1500-1518 
that federal agencies use to implement the National Environmental 
Policy Act (NEPA) (see Update to the Regulations Implementing the 
Procedural Provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act, 85 FR 
43304). The Final Rule became effective on and applies to any NEPA 
process begun after September 14, 2020. Commission staff intends to 
conduct its NEPA review in accordance with CEQ's new regulations.
    l. Project Description: The existing Cocheco Falls Dam Project 
consists of: (1) A 150-foot-long, 13.5-foot-high stone masonry arch dam 
that includes the following sections: (a) A 4-foot-long left abutment 
section; (b) a 140-foot-long spillway section with 24-inch-high 
flashboards, a 5-foot-wide, 10-foot-high low-level outlet gate, and a 
crest elevation of 36.25 feet National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 
(NGVD29) at the top of the flashboards; and (c) a 6-foot-long right 
abutment section with a 4-foot-wide, 9-foot-high debris sluice gate; 
(2) an impoundment with a surface area of 20 acres and a storage 
capacity of 150 acre-feet at an elevation of 36.25 feet NGVD29; (3) a 
64-foot-wide, 10-foot-high intake structure equipped with a trashrack 
with 1-inch clear bar spacing; (4) an 8.5-foot-diameter, 184-foot-long 
gated steel penstock that trifurcates into three 5-foot-diameter, 8-
foot-long sections, each controlled by a 5-foot-diameter butterfly 
valve; (5) a 40-foot-long, 40-foot-wide concrete and brick masonry 
powerhouse containing three 238-kilowatt (kW) vertical Flygt 
submersible turbine-generator units for a total installed capacity of 
714 kW; (6) a 40-foot-long, 40-foot-wide tailrace that discharges into 
the Cocheco River; (7) a 0.48/34.5-kilovolt (kV) step-up transformer 
and a 1,000-foot-long, 34.5-kV underground transmission line that 
connects the project to the local utility distribution system; and (8) 
appurtenant facilities.
    CFA voluntarily operates the project in a run-of-river mode using 
an automatic pond level control system to regulate turbine operation, 
such that outflow from the project approximates inflow. The project 
creates an approximately 200-foot-long bypassed reach of the Cocheco 
River.
    Downstream fish passage is provided by a bypass facility located on 
the left side of the dam that consist of a 5.6-foot-wide, 7-foot-long 
fish collection box, a trashrack with 6-inch clear bar spacing, and a 
24-inch-diameter PVC fish passage pipe. Upstream fish passage is 
provided by a Denil fish ladder located on the right side of the dam. 
The Denil fish ladder is owned and maintained by the New Hampshire Fish 
and Game Department, and is not a project facility.
    Article 25 of the current license, as amended on September 24, 
2002, requires a minimum flow release to the bypassed reach of: (1) 20 
cubic feet per second (cfs) through the fish ladder from April 15-June 
30; (2) 20 cfs through the trash sluiceway from April 15-June 15, to 
attract anadromous fish to the fish ladder; and (3) 20 cfs through the 
downstream fish passage facility from April 15 until ice forms on the 
river. The average annual energy production from 2014 to 2018 was 1,438 
megawatt-hours.
    CFA proposes to: (1) Continue to operate the project in a run-of-
river mode; (2) continue to facilitate upstream and downstream fish 
passage by providing the minimum flows required by the current license; 
(3) design and install an upstream eel passage facility within 4 years 
of the effective date of a subsequent license; and (4) consult with the 
New Hampshire State Historic Preservation Officer before beginning any 
land-disturbing activities or alterations to known historic structures 
within the project boundary.
    m. A copy of the application can be viewed on the Commission's 
website at https://www.ferc.gov using the ``eLibrary'' link. Enter the 
docket number excluding the last three digits in the docket number 
field to access the document. For assistance, contact FERC Online 
Support.
    n. 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 
``PROTEST,'' ``MOTION TO INTERVENE,'' ``COMMENTS,'' ``REPLY COMMENTS,'' 
``RECOMMENDATIONS,'' ``TERMS AND CONDITIONS,'' or ``PRESCRIPTIONS;'' 
(2) set forth in the heading the name of the applicant and the project
