Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: FERC issued docket number p-20:PacifiCorp received a new license for the Bear River Hydroelectric Project (Project) on December 22, 2003. The Project inclres three hydroelectric developments located on the Bear River in Caribou and Franklin Counties, Idaho. The 30-year license allows for the continued operation and maintenance of the Soda Development, the Grace and Cove Deveopments, and the Oneida Development. This Operations and Compliance PLan (Plan) has been prepared, as required by Article 415 of the license, to decribe compliance with minimum flow requirements and ramping rates as directed in Articles 408 and 412, respectively. The Plan includes the following information for each development of the Bear River Project: the proposed methodology and locations for monitoring minimum flows and ramping rates; specific measures to ensure that the monitoring system would operate under all conditions, including loss of external electric power to the project; the design of the monitoring devices, includings any pertinent hydraulic calculations, technical speciifications or proposed instrumentation, erosion and sediment control measures, as appropriate and design drawings of the system; a description of the relative extent of manned versus automatic operation of the monitoring equivalent; a decription of the methods and schedule for installing, calibrating, operating and maintaning the monitoring equipment; proposed data collection and storage protocols; provisions for reporting the recorded data to the Commission and the consulted agencies; provisions for reporting incidents in which minimum flows or ramping rates deviate from license requirements, and a schedule for implementation.
