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.

See 18 CFR 385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the Commission's web site at​efi/​doorbell.htm.

The Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure require all intervenors filing documents with the Commission to serve a copy of that document on each person whose name appears on the official service list for the project. Further, if an intervenor files comments or documents with the Commission relating to the merits of an issue that may affect the responsibilities of a particular resource agency, they must also serve a copy of the document on that resource agency.

k. Description of Application: Article 30 of the existing license requires Avista Corporation to spill at least 200 cubic feet per second (cfs) of water over the Monroe Street dam every day during viewing hours (10:00 am to one-half hour after sunset) for aesthetic purposes. Avista Corporation requests a temporary waiver of article 30 so it does not have to spill 200 cfs from June 30 through November 15, 2001.
