overflow section, (ii) a 200-foot-long central overflow spillway topped 
with 16-inch-high wooden flashboards, and (iii) a 200-foot-long non-
overflow spillway housing the inoperable J.P. Stevens Canal intake; (2) 
a 22-acre impoundment at a normal pool elevation of 774 feet mean sea 
level; (3) a 140-foot-long by 81-foot-wide intake canal consisting of 
eight gates at the head of the canal controlling flow to the 
powerhouse; (4) a 52-foot-long by 52-foot-wide brick masonry powerhouse 
protected by a trashrack structure with 2-inch clear bar spacing, 
located 120 feet downstream of the dam, containing one vertical Francis 
turbine generating unit that totals 1,000 kilowatt (kW); (5) a 180-
foot-long by 38-foot-wide tailrace; (6) a 263-foot-long, 600-volt 
transmission line connecting the powerhouse to the non-project 
substation; and (7) appurtenant facilities.
    Aquenergy operates the project in a run-of-river mode using
