Description of Request: The licensee is requesting a temporary variance from: (1) The minimum flow required by Article 33 from October 14 through October 31, 2019; and (2) the PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 22485 ramping rate required by Article 34 from October 14 through November 15, 2019. Article 33 requires a minimum flow of 75 cubic feet per second (cfs) in the river downstream of Rollins Dam from May 1 through October 31, and of 20 cfs from November 1 through April 30. Article 34 requires the maximum ramping rate downstream of the dam to not exceed 0.25 feet per hour (ft/hr). On October 13, 2019, the licensee would reduce flows in the Bear River below Rollins Dam down to 20 cfs following the 0.25 ft/hr ramping rate. The licensee requests the temporary variance in order to replace the emergency drawdown valve in Rollins Dam, which requires temporarily taking the valve and Rollins Powerhouse offline. The licensee proposes to conduct the valve replacement between October 14 and November 15, 2019. The licensee requests a variance from the minimum flow requirement until October 31, 2019, at which time the licensee would return the powerhouse on-line and be able to meet the minimum flow requirement. With the powerhouse back on-line, below a flow of approximately 150 cfs the licensee would not be able to meet the ramping rate requirement. Therefore the licensee the licensee requests a variance from the ramping rate requirement for instances when the powerhouse is brought back on-line or in case of emergency. Prior to initiating repairs, the licensee would notify the public and the agencies regarding the flow changes in the river. Following the initial flow reduction, the licensee would also conduct a reconnaissance survey in the river to determine whether any sensitive areas are exposed; if any are identified the licensee would consult with the resource agencies to discuss the appropriate action. l.
