2       Shaded milestones are unnecessary if there are no study disputes.
3       This schedule assumes FERC will issue a “single” EA (without a draft EA).  If FERC determines that a draft EA is needed, the post-filing timeframes will be modified accordingly.
* Updated to include Interim Comment Period dates.
