    l. 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 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 605 
acre-feet at the normal maximum water surface elevation of 
approximately 6,078 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 4,900-
foot-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-foot-long by 55-foot-wide, steel 
frame and concrete building constructed from reinforced concrete. The 
powerhouse contains one turbine-generator with a maximum capacity of 20 
megawatts (MW). The powerhouse produces an average annual generation 
production of 47.4 gigawatt-hours (GWh). Grizzly Powerhouse discharges 
the project's water flow directly into the Grizzly Forebay.
    A 4.2-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 Grizzly Forebay, forming the Grizzly Forebay Reservoir 
that extends approximately 0.8 mile. Total storage in the 38-acre 
reservoir is approximately 1,112 acre-feet at the normal maximum water 
surface elevation of approximately 4,316 feet.

Grizzly Forebay Tunnel (Bucks Creek Development)

    From Grizzly Forebay, the project's water flow is conveyed through 
the horseshoe-shaped Grizzly Forebay Tunnel. The tunnel is 9,575-foot-
long with two 4,786-foot-long penstocks leading to Bucks Creek 
Powerhouse. The maximum flow capacity is 400 cfs.

Bucks Creek Powerhouse (Bucks Creek Development)

    The project's water flow is conveyed through the Grizzly Forebay 
Tunnel to Bucks Creek Powerhouse. The Bucks Creek Powerhouse is a 47-
foot-long by 132-foot-wide, steel frame and concrete building 
constructed from reinforced concrete, containing two turbine-generators 
with a total maximum capacity of 65 MW. The powerhouse produces an 
average annual generation of 223.6 GWh.
    There are no associated transmission lines at the Bucks Creek 
Powerhouse. The powerhouse connects directly to the non-project 
switchyard adjacent to the powerhouse part of the interconnected 
transmission system.
    Bucks Creek Powerhouse discharges the project's water flow in the 
North Fork Feather River, 1 mile upstream of Rock Creek Powerhouse, 
part of PG&E's Rock Creek-Cresta Hydroelectric Project (FERC Project 
No. 1962).
