k. Calligan Creek Hydro Inc., has applied for license amendment to the Calligan Creek Hydroelectric Project. The current license for the project was issued on May 13, 1993. An order amending the license was issued on June 2, 1994, approving the change from an overhead transmission line to a buried one. On April 10, 1995, the Commission issued an order granting an extension of time for the construction of the project commencement date of May 13, 1997 and construction completion on May 13, 1999. On March 24, 1999, the Commission issued another order extending the date for the projects construction commencement and construction completion to May 13, 2001 and May 13, 2003, respectively. No project facilities have been constructed to date.
The licensee has requested an amendment to change the project capacity from 5.4 MW to 7.4 MW with a 36 percent increase in hydraulic capacity to allow maximum power production during high flows; modify the intake and diversion structures to accommodate the increased flow needed to support the increased generation capacity, including an increase of surface area to the fish screens; bury the first 2,000 feet of the penstock to a depth of about 100 feet to eliminate the need for the approved siphon; and change the current tailrace design from a 140-foot-long buried pipe to an approximately 100-foot-long open channel.

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