storage capacity of 14,300 acre-feet at a water surface area of 5,523 
feet above mean sea level (msl); (2) a lower reservoir with a surface 
area of 400 acres, formed by an 50-foot-high, rockfill earthwork 
impoundment, with a total storage capacity of 16,900 acre-feet at a 
water surface elevation of 4,191 feet msl; (3) 200-foot-wide spillways 
for both the upper and lower dams; (4) a 1,500-foot-long, 38-foot-wide 
D-shaped tailrace tunnel; (5) a 1,350-foot-deep, 24-foot-diameter 
vertical shaft to connect the upper and lower reservoir to the power 
tunnel; (6) a 3,200-foot-long, 24-foot-diameter power tunnel to connect 
the shaft with four steel-lined penstocks, each 12 feet in diameter and
