Start Preamble

Take notice that the following hydroelectric application has been filed with the Commission and is available for public inspection.

a. Type of Application: Amendment and Transfer of License. Licensees for the Saranac Project No. 4472, Union Falls Hydropower L.P. (Union Falls) and Erie Boulevard Hydropower L.P. (Erie Boulevard), request that the Commission amend the existing Saranac Project, which consists of two developments, the Franklin Falls Development and the Union Falls Development. The amendment would divide the two developments into separately-licensed projects and simultaneously approve a license transfer so that there are no longer co-licensees but rather Union Falls would become the sole licensee for the Union Falls Project, and Erie Boulevard would become the sole licensee for the Franklin Falls Project. If the amendment application is approved, the license for the Union Falls Development, would continue to be referred to as the Saranac Project No. 4472 and the license for the Franklin Falls Development would become a new project called the Franklin Falls Project No. 15000.
