This application is not ready for environmental analysis at this time. k. The Project Description: Bucks Lake Dam and Reservoir (Bucks Creek Development) The Bucks Lake dam consists of a rock-fill with concrete face dam. It has a structural height of 123 feet and a length of 1,320 feet. Bucks Creek dam impounds Bucks Lake, which extends 5 miles from the dam. Total storage in the 1,827-acre reservoir is approximately 105,605 acre-feet at the normal maximum water surface elevation of approximately 5,157 feet. From Bucks Lake, the project’s water flow is released immediately downstream into Lower Bucks Lake. Three Lakes Dam and Reservoir, and Milk Ranch Conduit (Bucks Creek Development) The Three Lakes dam consists of a rock-fill dam with a structural height of 30 feet and a length of 584 feet. Three Lakes dam impounds the flow of Milk Jkt 241001 PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Ranch Creek, forming Upper Lake, Middle Lake, and Lower Lake, collectively known as Three Lakes reservoir. These water bodies are hydraulically linked and are approximately 0.75 mile from the dam. Total storage in the 40-acre reservoir is approximately 513 acre-feet at the normal maximum water surface elevation of approximately 6,074 feet. Milk Ranch conduit conveys the project’s water flow from Three Lakes reservoir and feeder diversions to Lower Bucks Lake. The maximum capacity of the approximately 8-mile-long conduit is about 70 cubic foot per second (cfs). It collects additional flow from several diversions located on unnamed tributaries. Lower Bucks Lake Dam and Reservoir (Bucks Creek Development) The Lower Bucks Lake dam consists of a concrete arch dam with a structural height of 99 feet and a length of 500 feet. Lower Bucks Creek dam impounds Lower Bucks Lake, which extends approximately 1.1 miles from the dam. Total storage in the 136-acre reservoir is approximately 5,843 acre-feet at the normal maximum water surface elevation of approximately 5,022 feet. Water is conveyed from Lower Bucks Lake to the Grizzly powerhouse by the Grizzly powerhouse tunnel. Grizzly Powerhouse Tunnel (Grizzly Development) The 12,320-foot-long Grizzly powerhouse tunnel (including a 4,900foot-long buried penstock) conveys the water flow from Lower Bucks Lake to Grizzly powerhouse. The maximum flow capacity is 400 cfs. Grizzly Powerhouse (Grizzly Development) The Grizzly powerhouse is a 65-footlong by 55-foot-wide, steel frame and concrete building constructed from reinforced concrete, with a maximum capacity of 20 megawatts (MW) and an average annual generation production of 48.9 gigawatt-hours (GWh). Grizzly powerhouse discharges the project’s water flow directly into the Grizzly forebay. A 3.2-mile-long, 115-kilovolt (kV) transmission line transmits power from Grizzly powerhouse to PG&E’s 115-kV Caribou-Sycamore transmission line, part of the interconnected system. Grizzly Forebay Dam and Reservoir (Bucks Creek Development) The Grizzly forebay dam consists of a concrete arch dam with a structural height of 98 feet and a length of 520 feet. Grizzly forebay dam impounds the E:\FR\FM\22DEN1.SGM 22DEN1
