Public Notice Review of Power Company of Wyoming LLC’s request to Amend Permit DEQ/ISC 12-07 Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality, Wyoming Industrial Siting Council

Notice is hereby given that the Industrial Siting Division received an amendment request on July 12, 2017 from Power Company of Wyoming LLC (Permittee). The Permittee is seeking approval to amend the bonding schedule for the Chokecherry and Sierra Madre Wind Energy Project in Carbon County.  The request keeps the total bonding requirement at $146,918,000 based on the decommissioning and reclamation costs which have not changed; however, the request amends the bonding schedule allowing for six bonds instead of three.  The information submitted includes a letter describing the request, a revised Permit Condition 15, and updated tables breaking down the decommissioning and reclamation costs of $146,918,000 into the six proposed bonds.     

Pursuant to Permit Condition #11, the Administrator is providing public notice of the requested change to permit DEQ/ISC 12-07.   The public may review a copy of the proposed amendment at the Office of the Industrial Siting Division in Cheyenne, Wyoming or online at: http://deq.wyoming.gov/media/attachments/Industrial%20Siting/Application%20and%20Permits/Chokecherry%20and%20Sierra%20Madre%20Wind%20Energy%20Facility/2017%200712_ISD_PCW%20Amendment%20Bond%20Schedule_12%2007.pdf

Persons may also request a copy of the proposed amendment by contacting Kimber Wichmann at (307) 777-7369 or email at: kimber.wichmann@wyo.gov.

The Industrial Siting Council will consider this amendment request at its next meeting scheduled for Friday August 11, 2017. This meeting will be located at the Holiday Inn Rock Springs, 1675 Sunset Drive, in Rock Springs, Wyoming and begins at 10 A.M.
