c. Date Filed: February 12, 2007.

d. Applicant: Brazo River Authority.

e. Name of Project: Morris Sheppard Project.

f. Location: Brazos River in Palo Pinto County, TX. This project does not occupy any federal or tribal lands.

i. FERC Contacts: Any questions on this notice should be addressed to Ms. Shana High at (202) 502-8674.

j. Deadline for filing comments and or motions: April 9, 2007.

All documents (original and eight copies) should be filed with: Secretary, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington DC 20426. Please include the project number (P-1490-044) on any comments or motions filed. Comments, protests, and interventions may be filed electronically via the Internet in lieu of paper. See, 18 CFR 385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the Commission's Web site under the e-Filing link. The Commission strongly encourages e-filings.

k. Description of Proposal: In 2004, the Brazos River Authority (BRA) requested a permit for a 302 slip facility (120 existing and 182 proposed) at Hill Country Harbor Marina on Possum Kingdom Lake. The permit was authorized by the Commission on June 1, 2005. In January 2007, BRA discovered that the facility that was proposed and approved incorrectly identified the number of boat slips. While the footprint of the facility remains virtually unchanged, the BRA is requesting authorization for 402 total boat slips. The remainder of the application remains unchanged as the slips will be constructed off-site and floated into place, and no dredging or excavation will be necessary.

l. Location of the Applications: The filings are available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room, located at 888 First Street, NE., Room 2A, Washington, DC 20426, or may be viewed on the Commission's website at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link.
