Pre-Construction Notification (PCN) / Application Deemed Complete
Although not required for a complete application, the applicant has elected to wait to submit a complete application until a Preliminary Jurisdictional Determination (PJD) is provided to them from the Corps. The Corps is currently reviewing the applicant’s provided wetland delineation information, and will work with the applicant to complete a PJD over the next several months. The applicant has not indicated how soon after receiving a completed PJD they plan to submit a complete application. Please note, that based on FERC's projected FEIS date of 9-DEC-19, the Corps would need a complete permit application no later than 12-NOV-19 in order to render a decision 90 days after the FEIS is published. This projected date has been adjusted to account for federal holidays.
Publication of Public Notice
A PN will be published within 15 days of the receipt of a complete application, which is expected in 2018.
Final Verification / Permit Decision Rendered
The Alaska District expects to render a permit decision within 90 days of FERC completing its FEIS. This decision is dependent upon receiving Section 7 Endangered Species Act compliance and Section 106 National Historic Preservation Act compliance documentation from FERC during that 90 day period, or before. This decision is also dependent upon receiving from the applicant a complete application, information on alternatives, and a mitigation plan as outlined in 33 CFR 332 at least 120 days prior to 9-MAR-20 (12-NOV-19).
