Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: FERC issued docket number p-2082: The licensee is currently undergoing relicensing. Due to the age of the current license, there are minimal requirements with regard to environmental resources. The operation of the project is heavily influenced by the operation of the Bureau of Reclamation's Link River Diversion Dam on Upper Klamath Lake and major irrigation diversions, which also begin at Upper Klamath Lake. As a result, minimum flows are heavily influenced by BOR releases and are often less than the license required minimum flows. During the inspection, poor flow conditions were observed in the Keno and JC Boyle fish ladders. Additionally, the Iron Gate Reservoir was being drawn down 10 feet over a 2-week period to replace the Camp Creek and Mirror Cove boat ramps. During the inspection, one unit was operating at the Eastside powerhouse with a flow of 1000 cfs, the Westside powerhouse was out of service for maintenance, one unit was operating at the JC Boyle powerhouse with a flow of 1200 cfs, Copco 1 and 2 powerhouses were not operating, and one unit was operating at Iron Gate with a flow of 900 cfs. A follow-up telephone call with the licensee regarding fish ladder operations occurred on October 25, 2004.
