PROPOSED TEMPORARY TURBIDITY INCREASE IN THE BEAR RIVER

IN UINTA COUNTY

Y2 Consultants has requested a waiver from the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality, Water Quality Division (WDEQ/WQD) for a temporary increase in turbidity in the Bear River (Section 22; T15N, R120W) in Uinta County. Activity in cold water streams is normally limited to a ten (10) NTU increase over background. Approval of this request would allow an exceedance of this limit for up to thirty one (31) working days, subject to monitoring and reporting. This activity will follow the procedures in Chapter 1, Section 23(c)(ii), of the WDEQ Water Quality Rules and Regulations, which allow for temporary elevated levels of turbidity in certain circumstances. The applicant has applied for a 404 permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the project. Proposed activities include placing riprap on the river bank to armor it against erosion.

Requests for related information and documents about the proposed temporary turbidity increase should be directed to Bret Callaway by email ([email protected]) or phone (307-777-5802).  Comments must be addressed to Bret Callaway, Wyoming DEQ/WQD, 200 West 17th  Street, 4th Floor, Cheyenne, WY 82002, and postmarked before 5:00 p.m. on February 25, 2020 (or faxed to 307-635-1784) to be considered.

PUBLIC NOTICE

The Wyoming Public Service Commission (Commission) approved the Application of Rocky Mountain Power (RMP or the Company) for authority to revise its tariff schedules 70 and 72 to increase the Blue Sky block size from 100 to 200 kilowatt hours (kWh), effective on and after January 1, 2020. The proposed revision responds to growing customer demand for renewable energy and aligns the Company’s tariffs with current market conditions. The Commission’s approval is subject to notice, protest, intervention, refund, change, further investigation, opportunity for hearing and further order of the Commission.

On November 7, 2019, RMP submitted its Application requesting authority to revise tariff Schedules 70 and 72 to increase the Blue Sky Block value from 100 to 200 kWh. Participation in the Blue Sky program is optional for Wyoming customers who want to offset their energy usage requirements with renewable energy by purchasing blocks of bundled renewable energy certificates (RECs). Tariff 70 and 72 define RECs and the types of renewable energy sources underlying the RECs. Customers purchase RECs to ensure they are renewable energy users. The Company then retires those purchased RECs on the customer’s behalf and maintains Green-E certification of the Blue Sky program. Currently, the Company’s tariff defines “Blocks” as 100 kWh of renewable energy. The Company requests the Block value increase to 200 kWh of renewable energy. Customers will continue to have the right to purchase as many Blocks as they would like.

This is not a complete description of RMP’s Application. The Application is on file with the Commission at its offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and at RMP’s Wyoming business offices. The Application is available for inspection by any interested person during regular business hours or online at: http://psc.state.wy.us/.

Anyone desiring to file a statement, intervention petition, protest or request for a public hearing in this matter must file in writing with the Commission on or before March 4, 2020. A proposed intervention or request for hearing must set forth the grounds under which they are made and the position and interest of the petitioner in this proceeding. Please mention Docket No. 20000-571-ET-19 (Record No. 15388) in your communications.

If you wish to intervene in this matter or request a public hearing that you will attend, or want to make a statement, a protest or a public comment, and you require reasonable accommodation for a disability, please contact the Commission at (307) 777-7427, or write to the Commission at 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82002, to make arrangements. Communications-impaired persons may also contact the Commission by accessing Wyoming Relay at 711.
