k. Description of Request: The licensee proposes to amend the license for the Upper Red Lake Dam Hydroelectric Project to accelerate the expiration date of the license. The current expiration date of the license is December 31, 2018. The licensee requests the Commission to issue an order accelerating the expiration date of the license to not less than 5 years and 90 days from the date of the Commission order. The reasons for the request follow: (1) The licensee also operates the Weed Dam Hydroelectric Project (FERC Project No. 2464), which is located immediately downstream from the Upper Red Lake Dam Project; (2) the current license for the Weed Dam Project expires June 30, 2015, and the licensee will file a subsequent license application no later than June 30, 2013; and (3) the licensee would like to combine the relicensing activities since the two projects are small in size, approximate in location, and only three and one-half years apart in license expiration date, which would result in substantial savings to the licensee and more effective consultation with resources agencies and other stakeholders.Start Printed Page 46919
