Bakken Hunter, LLC; Notice of Application, 77113-77114 [2013-30322]

Download as PDF emcdonald on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 245 / Friday, December 20, 2013 / Notices produces an average annual generation of 559.06 gigawatthours (GWh). The average pumping power used by the project is 747.355 GWh. The existing Kinzua Project consists of: an intake/outlet structure in the Allegheny Reservoir, a discharge outlet in the Allegheny River, an upper reservoir, water conduits, control facilities and a powerhouse containing two reversible pump turbines (units 1 and 2) and one traditional generating unit (unit 3). Unit 1 and 2, when pumping water from or discharging water to the Allegheny Reservoir does so through two 418-foot-long, 15-footdiameter steel conduits. Unit 2 discharges to the Allegheny River downstream of the dam, it uses a discharge passage which is shared with unit 3. The intake structure located in the floor of the upper reservoir leads to a 22-foot-long, 4-inch-diameter pipe that transitions to a 21-foot-long, 6-inchdiameter steel-lined pipe for 2,500 feet where it bifurcates with one pipe extending 325.35 feet to unit 1 and the other pipe extending 245.95 feet where it bifurcates again. At the second bifurcation, one pipe extends 98.29 feet to unit 2 and 100.3 feet to unit 3. Each of the 3 penstocks contains a spherical valve near the entrance to each unit. The discharge passage for unit 2 consists of a 15-foot-diameter butterfly valve downstream of unit 2 to allow unit 2 to either generate into the discharge passage (open position) or pump/generate to the Allegheny Reservoir (closed position). This valve opens into a 15-foot-diameter steel discharge section tee and accepts water from both unit 2 and 3, up to 2,650 cubic feet per second (cfs) full gate capacity. The discharge tee transitions to a concrete-lined rectangular section 99 feet wide which outlets into the Allegheny River downstream of the Kinzua Dam. The project withdraws water from the Allegheny Reservoir, created by the Kinzua Dam. Water used for electricity production is pumped from the Allegheny Reservoir to the project’s upper reservoir using one or both reversible pump turbines (unit 1 and/or unit 2), and later passed through unit 1 and/or unit 2 back to the Allegheny Reservoir. Another portion of water used for electricity production can be pumped to the upper reservoir using unit 1 and/or unit 2, and then released directly into the Allegheny River using unit 2 and/or unit 3. FirstEnergy is proposing to operate unit 2 to discharge to the Allegheny River on a more frequent basis than under current operation. To facilitate these operations, FirstEnergy proposes to install a system VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:44 Dec 19, 2013 Jkt 232001 to automate operation of the project’s lower intake bulkheads and Corp’s sluice gates, and refurbish the unit 2 butterfly valve. Other project works include transformers, a transmission line approximately 3,100 feet long, access roads, recreational and other appurtenant facilities. FirstEnergy is proposing to raise the maximum operating level of the upper reservoir from 2,072 feet to 2,073 feet, (increase of 1 foot), and by doing so would increase the average annual generation from 559.06 GWh to 585.06 GWh. l.
