c. Date Filed: April 11, 2003.

d. Applicant: Hydro Technology Systems Inc.

e. Name of Project: Meyers Falls 1910 Hydroelectric Project.

f. Location: The project is located on the Colville River, in Stevens County, Washington.

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

j. Deadline for filing comments and or motions: June 9, 2003.

k. Description of Request: The exempt project has an authorized capacity of 300 kW (one generating unit) with a hydraulic capacity of 50 cfs. Now the exemptee is planning to install two units instead of one but with the same authorized installed and hydraulic capacity. In addition, the exemptee is proposing to add a small 65-kW generating unit with a hydraulic capacity of 12 cfs. The exemptee states this proposal would improve the operations efficiency of the project by utilizing low flows (0 to 12 cfs) that are available for generation but fall below the minimum hydraulic capacity of the bigger generating units.
