Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: FERC issued docket number p-696: On December 31, 2002, PacifiCorp filed a surrender application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Commission) to retire the existing 1,050-kilowatt (kW) American Fork Hydroelectric Project (Project) and simultaneously requested that their application for new license, filed October 27, 2000, be withdrawn. On February 13, 2003, PacifiCorp supplemented the surrender application with a comprehensive settlement agreement (Settlement). The project occupies about 28.8 acres of land within the Uinta National Forest, administered by the U.S. Forest Service (FS) and approximately 2,000 feet of the project's flowline passes through the Timpanogos Cave National Monument, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service (NPS). Since 1957, the project has experienced nine flowline failures with six of them occurring during the 1990s. Most of the failures were attributed to falling rocks. PacifiCorp's proposes to surrender the Project in a manner consistent with the Settlement. The Settlement supports PacifiCorp's continued operation of the project through August 31, 2006, and completion of all decommissioning measures by December 31, 2007. It is PacifiCorp's proposal to remove all above-ground project facilities by December 31, 2007, with the exception of the powerhouse which will be repaired and conveyed to the U.S. Forest Service.
