steel; (6) a 220-foot-long, 60-foot-wide, 120-foot-high powerhouse 
housed in an underground cavern and accessed via a 2,600-foot-long, 18-
foot-diameter access tunnel, housing two variable-speed reversible 
pump/turbine-motor/generator units rated for 150 megawatts each at 
1,370 feet maximum gross head; (7) a 2,400-foot-long, 17.5-foot-
diameter tailrace tunnel lined with concrete; (8) a 37-acre lower 
reservoir having a total storage capacity 1,800 acre-feet at a normal 
maximum operating elevation of 5,630 feet msl; (9) a 75-foot-high, 850-
foot-long zoned earth/rockfill or concrete-faced lower reservoir dam; 
(10) a 13-mile-long, 230-kilovolt (kV) transmission line extending from 
the powerhouse that would follow an existing transmission corridor to 
the Sigurd Substation owned by Rocky Mountain Power, or, if possible, a 
direct connection to Rocky Mountain Power's Sigurd-Red Butte No. 2 345-
kV line adjacent to the project (the point of interconnection); and 
(11) appurtenant facilities. The estimated annual generation of the
