This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

From the valve vault at Jerry Creek Reservoirs, water is transmitted through the Plateau Creek Pipeline by gravity to the Rapid Creek Water Treatment Plant (both facilities owned by the District) for a distance of about 15 miles in an alignment generally following Plateau Creek and Interstate Highway 70. The pipeline, completed in 2001, consists of 48-inch and 54-inch welded steel pipe. The total difference in elevation between the inlet at Jerry Creek Reservoirs and the terminus of the pipeline in a flow control vault at the water treatment plant (WTP) is about 290 feet.
The proposed generating unit would be located at the terminus of the Plateau Creek Pipeline in the existing flow control vault at the Rapid Creek WTP site with certain modifications to the vault and to existing equipment, piping and fittings in the vault. The total power production would be about 2.7 million kilowatt hours (kWh) in 2009.
