This application has been accepted and is ready for environmental analysis at this time. 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 NEPA (see Update to the Regulations Implementing the Procedural Provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act, 85 FR 43,304). The Final Rule became effective on and applies to any NEPA process begun after September 14, 2020. An agency may also apply the regulations to ongoing activities and environmental documents begun before September 14, 2020, which includes the proposed Goldendale Project. Commission staff intends to conduct its NEPA review in accordance with CEQ’s new regulations. l. The proposed Goldendale Project would include the following new facilities: (1) A 61-acre upper reservoir formed by a 175-foot-high, 8,000-footlong rockfill embankment dam at an elevation of 2,940 feet National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (NGVD 29) with a vertical concrete intake-outlet structure; (2) a 63-acre lower reservoir formed by a 205-foot-high, 6,100-foot- VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:14 Mar 29, 2022 Jkt 256001 long embankment at an elevation of 580 feet (NGVD 29) with a horizontal concrete intake-outlet structure and vertical steel slide gates; (3) an underground conveyance tunnel system connecting the two reservoirs consisting of a 2,200-foot-long, 29-foot-diameter concrete-lined vertical shaft, a 3,300foot-long, 29-foot-diameter concretelined high pressure tunnel, a 200-footlong, 22-foot-diameter high pressure manifold tunnel, three 600-foot-long, 15-foot-diameter steel/concrete penstocks, three 200-foot-long, 20-footdiameter steel-lined draft tube tunnels with bonneted slide gates, a 200-footlong, 26-foot-diameter concrete-lined low-pressure tunnel, and a 3,200-footlong, 30-foot-diameter concrete-lined tailrace tunnel; (4) an underground powerhouse located between the upper and lower reservoir in a 0.83-acre powerhouse cavern containing three, 400-megawatt (MW) Francis-type pumpturbine units for a total installed capacity of 1,200 MW; (5) a 0.48-acre underground transformer cavern adjacent to the powerhouse containing intermediate step-up transformers that will step up the voltage from 18 kilovolts (kV) to 115 kV; (6) two 30-footdiameter tunnels for accessing the powerhouse and transformer caverns; (7) a 0.84-mile-long, 115-kV underground transmission line extending from the transformer gallery through the combined access/ transmission tunnel to where it emerges aboveground near the west side of the lower reservoir and extending an additional 0.27 miles to an outdoor 7.3acre substation/switchyard where the voltage would be stepped up to 500 kV; (8) a 3.13-mile-long, 500-kV transmission line routed from the substation/switchyard south across the Columbia River and connecting to Bonneville Power Administration’s existing John Day Substation; (9) a buried 30-inch-diameter water fill line leading from a shut-off and throttling valve within a non-project water supply vault owned by Klickitat Public Utility District (KPUD) to an outlet structure within the lower reservoir to convey water to fill the reservoirs; and (10) appurtenant facilities. The project would also include an existing 0.7-mile road for accessing the lower reservoir site and an existing 8.6-mile-long road for accessing the upper reservoir site both of which may be modified to provide access for construction vehicles. The water supply used to initially fill the lower reservoir as well as to provide make-up water would be purchased from KPUD and would be obtained from KPUD’s existing intake pond on the PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Columbia River. The project water fill line would connect to a new KPUDowned flanged water supply service connection in a water supply vault located near the lower reservoir. Within the vault, and just downstream of the service connection, there would be a project shut-off and throttling valve to control the initial fill and make-up water flow rate into the lower reservoir. The initial fill would require 7,640 acrefeet of water and would be completed in about six months at an average flow rate of approximately 21 cubic feet per second (maximum flow rate available is 35 cubic feet per second). It is estimated that the project would need 360 acrefeet of water each year to replenish water lost through evaporation and seepage. m.

    k. This application has been accepted and is ready for 
environmental analysis at this time.
    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 NEPA (see Update to the 
Regulations Implementing the Procedural Provisions of the National 
Environmental Policy Act, 85 FR 43,304). The Final Rule became 
effective on and applies to any NEPA process begun after September 14, 
2020. An agency may also apply the regulations to ongoing activities 
and environmental documents begun before September 14, 2020, which 
includes the proposed Goldendale Project. Commission staff intends to 
conduct its NEPA review in accordance with CEQ's new regulations.
    l. The proposed Goldendale Project would include the following new 
facilities: (1) A 61-acre upper reservoir formed by a 175-foot-high, 
8,000-foot-long rockfill embankment dam at an elevation of 2,940 feet 
National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (NGVD 29) with a vertical 
concrete intake-outlet structure; (2) a 63-acre lower reservoir formed 
by a 205-foot-high, 6,100-foot-long embankment at an elevation of 580 
feet (NGVD 29) with a horizontal concrete intake-outlet structure and 
vertical steel slide gates; (3) an underground conveyance tunnel system 
connecting the two reservoirs consisting of a 2,200-foot-long, 29-foot-
diameter concrete-lined vertical shaft, a 3,300-foot-long, 29-foot-
diameter concrete-lined high pressure tunnel, a 200-foot-long, 22-foot-
diameter high pressure manifold tunnel, three 600-foot-long, 15-foot-
diameter steel/concrete penstocks, three 200-foot-long, 20-foot-
diameter steel-lined draft tube tunnels with bonneted slide gates, a 
200-foot-long, 26-foot-diameter concrete-lined low-pressure tunnel, and 
a 3,200-foot-long, 30-foot-diameter concrete-lined tailrace tunnel; (4) 
an underground powerhouse located between the upper and lower reservoir 
in a 0.83-acre powerhouse cavern containing three, 400-megawatt (MW) 
Francis-type pump-turbine units for a total installed capacity of 1,200 
MW; (5) a 0.48-acre underground transformer cavern adjacent to the 
powerhouse containing intermediate step-up transformers that will step 
up the voltage from 18 kilovolts (kV) to 115 kV; (6) two 30-foot-
diameter tunnels for accessing the powerhouse and transformer caverns; 
(7) a 0.84-mile-long, 115-kV underground transmission line extending 
from the transformer gallery through the combined access/transmission 
tunnel to where it emerges aboveground near the west side of the lower 
reservoir and extending an additional 0.27 miles to an outdoor 7.3-acre 
substation/switchyard where the voltage would be stepped up to 500 kV; 
(8) a 3.13-mile-long, 500-kV transmission line routed from the 
substation/switchyard south across the Columbia River and connecting to 
Bonneville Power Administration's existing John Day Substation; (9) a 
buried 30-inch-diameter water fill line leading from a shut-off and 
throttling valve within a non-project water supply vault owned by 
Klickitat Public Utility District (KPUD) to an outlet structure within 
the lower reservoir to convey water to fill the reservoirs; and (10) 
appurtenant facilities. The project would also include an existing 0.7-
mile road for accessing the lower reservoir site and an existing 8.6-
mile-long road for accessing the upper reservoir site both of which may 
be modified to provide access for construction vehicles.
    The water supply used to initially fill the lower reservoir as well 
as to provide make-up water would be purchased from KPUD and would be 
obtained from KPUD's existing intake pond on the Columbia River. The 
project water fill line would connect to a new KPUD-owned flanged water 
supply service connection in a water supply vault located near the 
lower reservoir. Within the vault, and just downstream of the service 
connection, there would be a project shut-off and throttling valve to 
control the initial fill and make-up water flow rate into the lower 
reservoir. The initial fill would require 7,640 acre-feet of water and 
would be completed in about six months at an average flow rate of 
approximately 21 cubic feet per second (maximum flow rate available is 
35 cubic feet per second). It is estimated that the project would need 
360 acre-feet of water each year to replenish water lost through 
evaporation and seepage.
