Description of Proceeding: The licensee is in violation of Article 17 of its license, issued April 22, 1987, which states in part: If the Licensee shall PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 abandon or discontinue good faith operation of the project or refuse or neglect to comply with the terms of the license and the lawful orders of the Commission, the Commission will deem it to be the intent of the Licensee to surrender the license. Commission records indicate that the four main generating units stopped operating in 2004 and the fifth minimum flow-generating unit became inoperable in 2006. Additionally, severe floods occurring in June 2006 and April 2011 washed out the flashboards, causing debris damage, which the licensee has not repaired. The Commission’s Division of Dam Safety and Inspections last inspected the project on June 12, 2012. The inspection found that the licensee does not have plans to restore the nonoperating generating units, but is committed to maintaining the dam in a safe condition. The licensee filed with the Commission a Dam Safety Surveillance and Monitoring Report on March 10, 2014. The report states that the licensee must seek approval from a bankruptcy court before receiving any funds for project repairs. l. This notice is available for review and reproduction at the Commission in the Public Reference Room, Room 2A, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426.
