j. Deadline for filing comments and/or motions: May 29, 2001.

All documents (original and eight copies) should be filed with: David P. Boergers, Secretary, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, N.E., Washington, D.C., 20426.

k. Description of Proposed Project: The City of Escondido, filed a proposal to replace the Rincon and Wohlford penstocks, two structurally degraded pipelines in northern San Diego County, California. The existing Rincon penstock would be removed and disposed of then replaced within the same alignment with an approximately 1,940-foot (0.36-mile) long below-grade, welded-steel penstock. The new Wohlford penstock would be approximately 4,070 feet (0.77-mile) long and would deviate from the original alignment to avoid geologically unstable areas and impacts to biological resources. Approximately 2.600 feet of the proposed penstock would be located within rights-of-way for Oakvale and Lake Wohlford Roads. The proposed Wohlford penstock would be installed below-grade with the exception of one section. Both new penstocks would be designed to maintain, as closely as possible, the original hydraulic conditions, including flow rates, power generating capacity, and headloss.
