    l. The existing Salmon Creek Project consists of two developments: 
The Salmon Creek Development and the Annex Creek Development. The 
Salmon Creek Development consists of the following existing facilities: 
(1) The 165-acre Salmon Creek Reservoir impounded by a 648-foot-long, 
186-foot-high dam, with ten 5-foot-wide spillway bays; (2) a 1,500-
foot-long canal used to periodically divert water from tributary 
streams into Salmon Creek Reservoir; (3) a 10-foot-wide, 11-foot high 
intake structure with trashracks; (4) a 3-foot-diameter conduit that 
conveys flows from the dam to the project valvehouse located 
immediately downstream; (5) a 4,290-foot-long, 3.3- to -2-foot-diameter 
penstock that conveys flows from the valvehouse to the decommissioned 
Upper Powerhouse where it connects to an 11,303-foot-long, 3.5-foot-
diameter penstock that narrows to a 2.5-foot-diameter immediately 
before entering the Lower Powerhouse; (6) the 57-foot-long, 44-foot-
wide, 32-foot-high Lower Powerhouse, which contains a 6.9-megawatt (MW) 
impulse turbine; (7) an approximately 250-foot-long tailrace that flows 
underneath Egan Drive and empties into a pond adjacent to the Douglas 
Island Pink and Chum, Inc. hatchery; and (8) appurtenant facilities. 
The Annex Creek Development consists of the following existing 
facilities: (1) the 264-acre Upper Annex Lake, impounded by a 118-foot-
long, 20-foot-high dam with a 57-foot-wide spillway that discharges 
flow in excess of those needed for generation into the 27-acre natural 
Lower Annex Lake via a 0.15-mile-long outlet stream; (2) a 61-foot-
long, 6-foot-high timber saddle dam located just west of the main dam; 
(3) a lake tap intake on Upper Annex Lake; (4) a 1,433-foot-long power 
tunnel that narrows from 8 feet wide and 8 feet high at the intake to a 
6.5-diameter tunnel at the project valvehouse; (5) the project 
valvehouse containing the penstock intake; (6) the 7,097-foot-long, 
3.5-foot-diameter penstock that narrows to a 2.8-foot-diameter before 
it bifurcates at the powerhouse to provide flows to two impulse turbine 
units with a total installed capacity of 3.675 MW; (7) the 67-foot-
long, 48-foot-wide, 40-foot-high powerhouse; (8) a tailrace that 
discharges flows over a weir into Taku Inlet; (9) a 12.5-mile-long, 23-
