Download as PDF 45284 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 187 / Thursday, September 28, 2017 / Notices water surface elevation is maintained at 718.7 feet. River flows between 159 cubic feet per second (cfs) and 1,200 cfs are used for power generation, while flows in excess of 1,200 cfs are passed over the spillway. A single manually operated, low level outlet gate located in the unregulated spillway portion of the dam is used to drain the impoundment during maintenance activities. The total installed capacity of the project is 1,950 kW between the three generating units. The project generates approximately 6,223 megawatt-hours annually, which are sold to a local utility. The co-licensees propose to continue to operate and maintain the Upper Pelzer Project as is required in the existing license, and to develop canoe portage facilities. The co-licensees also propose to release a continuous minimum flow of 15 cfs or inflow, whichever is less, from the project dam in order to maintain aquatic habitat and water quality conditions in the 115-footlong reach between the dam and the upstream powerhouse tailrace. Other than the development of canoe portage facilities, no new construction or major project modifications are proposed. m.

The Lower Pelzer Project consists of: (1) A 696-foot-long by 40-foot-high granite masonry dam, consisting of (i) a 310-foot-long spillway section topped with 4-foot wooden flashboards, (ii) a 40-foot-long non-overflow section with two 10-foot-wide by 6-foot-high gates, and (iii) a 236-foot-long non-overflow section; (2) an 80-acre impoundment at a normal pool elevation of 693 feet mean sea level; (3) a 110-foot-long by 14-foot-wide intake, protected by a trashrack structure with 2-inch clear bar spacing, controlling flow to the powerhouse through five, 10.5-footwide square gates; (4) a 110-foot-long by 68-foot-wide brick powerhouse integral with the dam, containing 5 horizontal Francis turbine generating units that total 3,300 kilowatts (kW); (5) a 600foot-long by 110-foot-wide tailrace; (6) a 3-mile-long, 3,300-volt transmission line connecting the powerhouse to the grid via a 7.2/12.47 kilovolt transformer; and (7) appurtenant facilities. Pelzer Hydro and Consolidated Hydro (co-licensees) operate the project in a run-of-river mode, with no storage or flood control capacity. A continuous minimum flow of 140 cubic feet per second (cfs) or inflow, whichever is less, is released into the bypassed reach. The minimum flow is achieved via a sluice gate in the dam. The project operates under an estimated average head of 40 feet, including the 4-foot spillway flashboards. The impoundment water surface elevation is maintained at 693 E:\FR\FM\28SEN1.SGM 28SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 187 / Thursday, September 28, 2017 / Notices feet. River flows between 159 and 1,408 cfs are used for power generation, while flows in excess of 1,408 cfs are passed over the flashboards and spillway. Flow to the generating units is controlled by five manually operated square slide gates. The total installed capacity of the project is 3,300 kW between the five generating units. The project generates approximately 8,784 megawatt-hours annually, which are sold to a local utility. The co-licensees propose to continue to operate and maintain the Lower Pelzer Project as is required in the existing license, and to develop canoe portage facilities. The co-licensees also propose to remove the existing threemile-long, 3,300-volt overhead transmission line, which is no longer in use, from the project boundary under a new license. Instead, the project would use a 165-foot-long, 3,300-volt transmission line that interconnects with the grid at an applicant-owned transformer. No changes to project operations are proposed. Other than the development of canoe portage facilities, no new construction or major project modifications are proposed. m.

    l. The Lower Pelzer Project consists of: (1) A 696-foot-long by 40-
foot-high granite masonry dam, consisting of (i) a 310-foot-long 
spillway section topped with 4-foot wooden flashboards, (ii) a 40-foot-
long non-overflow section with two 10-foot-wide by 6-foot-high gates, 
and (iii) a 236-foot-long non-overflow section; (2) an 80-acre 
impoundment at a normal pool elevation of 693 feet mean sea level; (3) 
a 110-foot-long by 14-foot-wide intake, protected by a trashrack 
structure with 2-inch clear bar spacing, controlling flow to the 
powerhouse through five, 10.5-foot-wide square gates; (4) a 110-foot-
long by 68-foot-wide brick powerhouse integral with the dam, containing 
5 horizontal Francis turbine generating units that total 3,300 
kilowatts (kW); (5) a 600-foot-long by 110-foot-wide tailrace; (6) a 3-
mile-long, 3,300-volt transmission line connecting the powerhouse to 
the grid via a 7.2/12.47 kilovolt transformer; and (7) appurtenant 
facilities.
    Pelzer Hydro and Consolidated Hydro (co-licensees) operate the 
project in a run-of-river mode, with no storage or flood control 
capacity. A continuous minimum flow of 140 cubic feet per second (cfs) 
or inflow, whichever is less, is released into the bypassed reach. The 
minimum flow is achieved via a sluice gate in the dam. The project

feet. River flows between 159 and 1,408 cfs are used for power 
generation, while flows in excess of 1,408 cfs are passed over the 
flashboards and spillway. Flow to the generating units is controlled by 
five manually operated square slide gates. The total installed capacity 
of the project is 3,300 kW between the five generating units. The
