a. Application Type: Application to Amend License for the Power Creek Hydroelectric Project.

b. Project No: 11243-037.

c. Date Filed: September 7, 2001.

d. Applicant: Cordova Electric Cooperative.

e. Name of Project: Power Creek Hydroelectric Project.

f. Location: The project is located on Power Creek in the town of Cordova, Southeast Alaska. The project is entirely on Eyak Native Corporation Lands, adjacent to the Chugach National Forest.

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

h. Applicant Contact: Kenneth J. Gates, Cordova Electric Cooperative, P.O. Box 20, Cordova, AK, 99674-0020. Tel: (907) 424-5555.

i. FERC Contact: Any questions on this notice should be addressed to Mr. Vedula Sarma at (202) 219-3273 or by e-mail at vedula.sarma@ferc.fed.us.

j. Deadline for filing comments and/or motions: (October 25, 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 10416. Comments, protests and interventions 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 under the “e-Filing” link.

Please include the project number (11243-037) on any comments or motions filed.

k. Description of Filing: The licensee is proposing re-route about 250 feet of the project pipeline in the area of the penstock bridge. The re-route would consist of burying the penstock under Power Creek where it crosses the creek, instead of running over on the bridge as presently constructed. The proposed action would protect the penstock from any avalanche damage. Burying the penstock would provide economic and environmental benefits by eliminating the risk of pipe line rupture and consequent water quality impact , and power outages.

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.
