(licensee) proposes to amend the license for the Lake Dorothy Hydroelectric Project to replace the proposed lake tap at Bart Lake with a rock fill diversion dam and outlet works. According to the licensee the geology of Bart Lake will not support the lake tap and that the natural debris dam that contains the lake is subject to periodic failure and cannot be relied upon for constant lake levels. In a supplemental October 21, 2005, filing the licensee also proposes to relocate the powerhouse and the substation. The license calls for the powerhouse and substation to be built on a beach fill site. VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:11 Nov 23, 2005 Jkt 205001 According to the licensee, a geotechnical investigation determined that the beach fill site would not be stable in an earthquake, so the licensee proposes relocating the structures to separate rock benches upstream of the beach fill site. The licensee states that there will be no additional environmental impacts due to these revisions, and that the project operation would be unchanged. l.
