project includes: (1) A 185-foot-high, 40-foot-wide, 2,070-foot-long, 
zoned, earth-filled main dam; (2) a 45-foot-high, 20-foot-wide, 1,060-
foot-long, earth-filled south wing dam; (3) a 25-foot-high, 20-foot-
wide, 1,460-foot-long, earth-filled north wing dam; (4) a 15-foot-high, 
20-foot-wide, 1,450-foot-long, earth-filled dike; (5) a 1,886-acre 
reservoir with a gross storage capacity of about 93,737 acre-feet at 
the normal maximum water surface elevation (NMWSE) of 300 feet; (6) an 
overflow spillway with a 15-foot-wide concrete approach apron, 300-
foot-long ungated, ogee-type concrete structure, and a 77-foot-long 
downstream concrete chute with concrete sidewalls; (7) a 1,200-foot-
long, unlined, rock channel that carries spill downstream to the Bear 
River; (8) a 22-foot-high, concrete, power intake tower with openings 
on three sides protected by steel trashracks; (9) a 760-foot-long, 8-
foot-diameter concrete tunnel through the left abutment of the main dam 
that conveys water from the power intake to the powerhouse; (10) a 
steel-reinforced, concrete powerhouse with a 6.8-MW, vertical-shaft, 
Francis-type turbine, which discharges to the Bear River at the base of 
the main dam; (11) a 25-foot-4-inch-high, concrete, vertical intake 
tower with openings on three sides protected by steel trashracks that 
receives water for the outlet works; (12) a 350-foot-long, 48-inch-
diameter steel pipe that conveys water from the intake structure to a 
valve chamber for the outlet works; (13) a 400-foot-long, 7.5-foot-
diameter concrete-lined horseshoe tunnel that connects to the valve 
chamber; (14) a 48-inch-diameter, outlet valve with a 500-cubic-feet-
per-second release capacity at NMWSE on the downstream face of the main 
dam that discharges directly into the Bear River; (15) a switchyard 
adjacent to the powerhouse; (16) two recreation areas with campgrounds, 
day-use areas, boat ramps, restrooms, and sewage holding ponds; (17) a 
recreational water system that includes two pumps in the reservoir that 
deliver water to a treatment facility that is piped to a 60,000-gallon 
storage tank to supply water to recreation facilities. The estimated 
average annual generation (2010 to 2017) is 22,637 megawatt-hours.
    SSWD proposes to: (1) Raise the NMWSE of the project reservoir by 5 
feet from an elevation of 300 feet to an elevation of 305 feet; (2) 
replace and restore several recreation facilities; (3) add an existing 
0.25-mile road as a primary project road to access the powerhouse and 
switchyard; and (4) modify the project boundary to account for the 
removal of the 1.9-mile-long transmission line from the license in 
1991, corrections based on current project operation and maintenance, 
and changes under the category of a contour 20 feet above the 300-ft 
NMWSE or proximity of 200-horizontal-feet from the 300-foot NMWSE.
