b. Project No: 2030-033.

c. Date Filed: February 20, 2001.

d. Applicant: Portland General Electric Company (PGE).

e. Name of Project: Round Butte & Pelton Project.

f. Location: The project is located on the Deschutes River in Jefferson County, Oregon, in part on federal lands, including tribal lands within the Warm Springs Indian Reservation.

g. Filed Pursuant to: Federal Power Act, 16 U.S.C. § 791(a)-825(r).

h. Applicant Contact: Julie Keil, Director, Hydro Licensing, Portland General Electric Company, 121 SW Salmon Street, 3WTC-BRHL, Portland, OR 97204, (503) 464-8864.

i. FERC Contact: Any questions on this notice should be addressed to Mr. Mohamad Fayyad (202) 219-2665 or by e-mail at

j. Deadline for filing comments and/or motions: March 23, 2001.

All documents (original and eight copies) should be filed with: David P. Boergers, Secretary, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC 20426. Comments and protests may be filed electronically via the Internet in lieu of paper. See, 18 CFR 385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the Commission's web site at​efi/​doorell.htm.

Please include the project number (2030-033) on any comments or motions filed.

k. Description of Filing: PGE proposes to replace the runners on two of the three turbines at the Round Butte Development of the project. The proposed new runners will have a maximum hydraulic capacity of 4,700 cfs at 345 ft net head, which represents an approximate 3% increase in the maximum hydraulic capacity of the turbines. The existing turbines are operated in their high efficiency range and the upgrade units would be operated in a similar manner. The capacity of the Round Butte Development would not change because it is limited by the generator capacity. Installation of new runners would provide increased flexibility in system load following and spinning reserve capability, and could alleviate some of the shortages in energy currently being experienced in that part of the Nation.

l. Locations of the Application: A copy of the application is available for inspection and reproduction at the Commission's Public Reference Room, located at 888 First Street, NE, Room 2A, Washington, DC 20426, or by calling (202) 208-1371.

m. Individuals desiring to be included on the Commission's mailing list should so indicate by writing to the Secretary of the Commission.
