INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING FORMS FERC-587
Form FERC-587 is issued to identify those project boundary maps associated with federal lands. There
are two versions of the form to account for the two different ways land is surveyed in the United States, the
Public Land States and the Non-Public Land States. The Public Land States version is used for projects
located on the western side of the United States, and is based on the Federal Township and range
system. The Non-Public Land States version is to be used for most of the projects located on the eastern
side of United States, including Texas, and is based just on county information.
To complete either form you must:
1. Identify the boundary maps in the license, preliminary permit, or in the application for license,
amendment of license, or preliminary permit.
2. Provide the project number assigned by FERC. Type or print legibly when entering information on the
form. Include your signature, and date completing the form.
3. Microfilm copies of the project boundary maps must be submitted with the land description forms as
directed by FERC. Each map must be reproduced on silver or gelatin 35 mm microfilm mounted on type D
(3-1/4" X 7-3/8”) aperture cards. The project number followed by a hyphen and sheet number or letter
must be typed on the front of each card in the upper right corner.

To complete the Public Land States (Rectangular Survey System Lands) you need
to:
1.
Identify the state in which the project is located. If the project lies within multiple states, then provide
the state for the township which the form refers. Only one state should appear on the form.
2.
Provide the FERC Project Number assigned by FERC (e.g., P-96). Only one project number should
appear on the form.
3. Identify the Township, Range and Meridian where the project lands and federal lands overlap. Each
township is depicted in a map by an identifying number according to where it falls (e.g. T9SR22E). The
east/west numbers are identified by the term "Range" and the north/south numbers are identified by the
term "Township". The completed land description form will identify the sections of the township affected
by the project (both federal and non-federal lands) and provide references to the maps that show the
project boundary in those sections. Complete a separate form for each township identified, regardless of
the ownership status of the lands.
4. Identify whether you are completing the form for a licensed project or a preliminary permit. Identify
whether the license is pending or issued. Provide an expiration date in case of a preliminary permit.
5. Using the township grid provided on the form, identify the section(s), in which the federal land is
located on the map. Every Section is numbered, from 1 to 36, depending upon its position within the
township. Specify the exhibit sheet (drawing) number, or letter within the appropriate township section. If
the FERC sheet numbers have been assigned, they must be used on the land description forms. In those
cases where FERC has not assigned sheet numbers, assign letter designations A, B, C, etc., in lieu of
FERC sheet numbers. Permittees and permit applicants must assign letter designations since FERC does
not assign sheet numbers for permits. The sheet numbers or letters are to be entered in the appropriate
place on the land description forms to provide references to the maps. (i.e., if sheets 74 and 75 show the
project boundary in sections 13 and 24 of a township, the numbers 74 and 75 would be inserted in the box
on the land description form representing sections 13 and 24).
6. Provide the name and telephone number of the person completing the form, and the date the form is
submitted.
