Start Preamble

On November 27, 2013, Erie Boulevard Hydropower, L.P. (Erie or transferor) and the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe (Tribe or transferee) filed an application to transfer the license for the Hogansburg Hydroelectric Project No. 7518, located on the St. Regis River in Franklin County, New York. That same day, the Tribe (as a prospective licensee) filed an application to surrender the project license and to decommission and remove the project dam. On January 21, 2015, Erie and the Tribe filed a letter requesting that the Commission construe their November 27, 2013 filings as a request to partially transfer the license for the Hogansburg Project to add the Tribe as a co-licensee.

Erie and the Tribe now contemplate a two-step process where the Tribe would first become a co-licensee, and would subsequently surrender the license and decommission the project facilities, with Erie remaining a co-licensee. This notice applies only to the partial transfer request. If the partial transfer is approved, the Commission will solicit comments and review the surrender and decommissioning request in a separate proceeding.
