    The Commission strongly encourages electronic filing. Please file motions to intervene and protests and requests for cooperating agency status using the Commission's eFiling system at http://www.ferc.gov/​docs-filing/​efiling.asp. For assistance, please contact FERC Online Support at FERCOnlineSupport@ferc.gov, (866) 208-3676 (toll free), or (202) 502-8659 (TTY).

    The Commission's Rules of Practice require all intervenors filing documents with the Commission to serve a copy of that document on each person on the official service list for the project. Further, if an intervenor files comments or documents with the Commission relating to the merits of an issue that may affect the responsibilities of a particular resource agency, they must also serve a copy of the document on that resource agency.

    k. This application has been accepted, but is not ready for environmental analysis at this time.

    l. Project Description: The existing Camp Far West Transmission Line Project (P-10821) is a transmission line-only project and does not generate power. The project serves as the primary transmission line for South Sutter Water District's Camp Far West Hydroelectric Project No. 2997. The licensed project includes a 1.9-mile-long, three-phase, 60-kilovolt (kV) transmission line extending from the powerhouse of the Camp Far West Hydroelectric Project to an interconnection with PG&E's Smartville-Lincoln 60-kV transmission line.

    PG&E proposes to connect the project's licensed 1.9-mile-long transmission line to an existing 9-mile-long, northbound segment of the Smartville-Lincoln transmission line that connects to the Smartville-Nicholas No. 1 transmission line at Beale Air Force Base. Because the 9-mile-long northbound segment of the Smartville-Lincoln transmission line would only carry electricity transmitted by the project, PG&E proposes to incorporate the 9-mile-segment into any subsequent license issued for the project.
