Specifically, Northwest proposes to replace approximately 100 feet of existing 10-inch diameter pipeline with approximately 100 feet of new 10-inch diameter pipeline. Northwest states that the new pipeline segment will be installed at a lower depth in Northwest's existing right-of-way and the existing pipeline segment will be abandoned by removal. Northwest asserts that the section of the lateral has become partially exposed by erosion within the banks of Windy Creek, making a replacement necessary to maintain safety and integrity of the lateral. Northwest estimates the cost of the project to be approximately $300,000.
Any questions regarding the application should be directed to Gary K. Kotter, Manager, Certificates and Tariffs, Northwest Pipeline Corporation, P.O. Box 58900, Salt Lake City, Utah 84158-0900, or call at (801) 584-7117.

If no protest is filed within the time allowed therefore, the proposed activity shall be deemed to be authorized effective the day after the time allowed for protest. If a protest is filed and not withdrawn within 30 days after the time allowed for filing a protest, the instant request shall be treated as an application for authorization pursuant to Section 7 of the NGA.
