The Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure require all interveners 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. Start Printed Page 20844Further, if an intervener 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. A copy of any motion to intervene must also be served upon each representative of the Applicant specified in the particular application.

k. Description of Request: The licensee proposes to: (1) Move the diversion structure about 54 feet downstream from the authorized location, and change the height of the structure from 10 to 15 feet, which would change the surface area of the impoundment from 0.25 to about 0.30 acre, and its volume from 1.0 to 1.1 acre-feet; (2) extend the access road about 800 feet on the north side of Kasidaya Creek, cross over the creek with a 50-foot-long modular bridge, and then construct an additional 400 feet of road on the south side of the creek, to access the diversion structure; (3) instead of the authorized 675 foot-long tunnel between the diversion structure and the penstock, install a penstock that would be buried adjacent to the proposed extended access road; (4) install a pneumatic-operated gate instead of a spillway with a fixed concrete crest; (5) eliminate the quay at the marine access facilities; and (6) decrease the length of the jetty from 250 to 200 feet. The corridor of the proposed extension of the access road and penstock would be in the same vicinity of the upper segment of penstock that was originally proposed under the license. These modifications would require changing the amount of federal lands occupied by the project from 11.05 acres to 12.14 acres.
