The project also consists of a 2,190foot-long, 2.3-kV overhead transmission line interconnecting the generator leads to a 200-foot-long, 23-kV supply bus at MPM’s paper mill facility. The Powder Mill Development operates in a seasonal store and release mode to meet downstream demand for hydroelectric generation at MPM’s paper mill facility and instream flow requirements, while the Monadnock, Pierce, and Paper Mill developments operate in a run-of-river mode. The existing license requires an instantaneous minimum flow of 13 cubic feet per second (cfs) (or inflow, whichever is less), in the Powder Mill, Monadnock, and Pierce tailraces; and an instantaneous minimum flow of 70 cfs (or the inflow, whichever is less), in the Paper Mill tailrace. MPM proposes to continue operating the project according to the existing minimum flow requirements and restrict the impoundment level at the Powder Mill Development to a maximum drawdown of 3 feet (between elevations 675.44 and 672.44 feet NGVD). l.

of Powder Mill Dam and consists of: (1) An approximately 515-foot-long, 
22-foot-high dam consisting of a 165-foot-long concrete spillway with a 
crest elevation of 663.8 feet NGVD and 2-foot-high seasonal 
flashboards, a 75-foot-long earth embankment with a concrete core wall 
on the west side of the spillway, a 50-foot-long concrete non-overflow 
section, a 25-foot-long earth embankment with a concrete core wall, and 
a 200-foot-long earthen embankment on the east side of the spillway; 
(2) a 5-acre impoundment with a storage capacity of 240 acre-feet and a 
normal maximum elevation of 665.8 feet NGVD; (3) a 75-foot-long, 20-

turbine-generating units for a total installed capacity of 423 kW; (4) 
two 20 to 25-foot-long, 2.3-kV generator leads; (5) a 100-foot-long 
tailrace; and (6) appurtenant facilities.

Pierce Development

    The existing Pierce Development is located 900 feet downstream of 
the Monadnock Dam and consists of: (1) The 420-foot-long, 28-foot-high 
dam consisting of a 290-foot-long concrete spillway with a crest 
elevation of 651.4 feet NGVD and 2-foot-high seasonal flashboards; (2) 
a 7-acre impoundment with a storage capacity of 51-acre-feet and a 
normal maximum elevation of 653.4 feet NGVD; (3) a 25-foot-long, 35-
foot-wide powerhouse on the east side of the spillway containing two 
turbine-generating units for a total installed capacity of 770 kW; (4) 
two 15 to 25-foot-long, 2.3-kV generator leads; (5) a 600-foot-long 
tailrace; and (6) appurtenant facilities.

Paper Mill Development

    The existing Paper Mill Development is located 1,140 feet 
downstream of the Pierce Dam and consists of: (1) The 280-foot-long, 
19-foot-high dam consisting of a 142-foot-long concrete gravity 
spillway with a crest elevation of 625.6 feet NGVD and 2-foot-high 
seasonal flashboards; (2) a 5-acre impoundment with a storage capacity 
of 25-acre-feet and a normal maximum elevation of 627.6 feet NGVD; (3) 
a 300-foot-long power canal and headgate structure leading to a 
forebay; (4) an intake structure and a 10-foot-diameter, 200-foot-long 
steel penstock; (5) a generating room located on the lower level of 
MPM's paper mill facility containing a 746-kW turbine generating unit; 
(6) a 150-foot-long, 2.3-kV generator lead; (7) a 800-foot-long 
tailrace; and (8) appurtenant facilities.
    The project also consists of a 2,190-foot-long, 2.3-kV overhead 
transmission line interconnecting the generator leads to a 200-foot-
long, 23-kV supply bus at MPM's paper mill facility.
    The Powder Mill Development operates in a seasonal store and 
release mode to meet downstream demand for hydroelectric generation at 
MPM's paper mill facility and instream flow requirements, while the 
Monadnock, Pierce, and Paper Mill developments operate in a run-of-
river mode. The existing license requires an instantaneous minimum flow 
of 13 cubic feet per second (cfs) (or inflow, whichever is less), in 
the Powder Mill, Monadnock, and Pierce tailraces; and an instantaneous 
minimum flow of 70 cfs (or the inflow, whichever is less), in the Paper 
Mill tailrace. MPM proposes to continue operating the project according 
to the existing minimum flow requirements and restrict the impoundment 
level at the Powder Mill Development to a maximum drawdown of 3 feet 
(between elevations 675.44 and 672.44 feet NGVD).
