    On May 30, 2014, the District filed an application with the 
Commission to surrender the exemption. The District has decided not to 
move forward with construction of the project, citing insufficient 
economic returns and cheaper alternatives in reducing greenhouse gas 
emissions.
    Accordingly, the Commission accepts the District's surrender of its 
exemption from licensing, effective 30 days from the date of this 
notice, at the close of business on Monday, August 11, 2014. No 
license, exemption, or preliminary permit applications for the project 
site may be filed until Tuesday, August 12, 2014.
