You must include your name and contact information at the end of your comments. For assistance, please contact FERC Online Support at FERCOnlineSupport@ferc.gov or toll free at 1-866-208-3676, or for TTY, (202) 502-8659. Although the Commission strongly encourages electronic filing, documents may also be paper-filed. To paper-file, mail an original and seven copies to: Secretary, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426. Please include the project number (p-2601-021) on any comments, motions, or recommendations filed.

The Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure require all intervenors filing documents with the Commission to serve a copy of that document on each person whose name appears 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. Description of Request: The applicant proposes to modify Article 406 Timing of Construction Activities of the original license [1] by: (1) Removing the restriction that construction activities be limited to normal daytime business hours; (2) removing the restriction that no construction shall take place two days before and after the peak summer holiday weekends (Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day); and requiring only that no construction will take place on holidays and peak summer holiday weekends (Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day). The applicant indicates that the benefit to this modification is that construction can be completed within one year, thereby limiting the impact to recreation users in nearby campsites to one recreation season. The site of the proposed construction activities is at the Clark Canyon dam, located near the intersection of Montana 324 and Interstate 15 in southwest Montana.
