impounds a 490-acre reservoir at a normal pool elevation of 616.36 
North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88). The project would also 
consist of the following new facilities: (1) a 37-foot-long, 52-foot-
high, 88-foot-wide intake structure with trash racks containing 2-inch 
clear bar spacing; (2) a 75-foot by 160-foot powerhouse located
