The notice described Big Wood Canal Company’s (exemptee) request to amend the conduit exemption, filed on August 22, 2019, and supplemented on September 20, 2019. On October 24, 2019, the exemptee filed additional information to reflect a proposed design change to its amendment application. Instead of removing the existing powerhouse, which contains three turbine generating units with a total installed capacity of 315 kilowatts (kW), and constructing a new powerhouse containing a single 475-kW turbine generating unit immediately downstream of the existing intake system, the exemptee now proposes to partially remove the existing powerhouse and to construct a new powerhouse adjacent to the downstream wall of the existing powerhouse. The new powerhouse would contain a single 475-kW turbine generating unit, as originally proposed by the exemptee. Additionally, instead of removing the approximately 400-foot-long existing, buried penstocks (three pipes) and excavating an open tailrace channel along the route of the existing penstocks, the exemptee now proposes to replace the existing penstocks with a single penstock.
