Although the Commission strongly encourages electronic filing, documents may also be paper-filed. To paper-file, mail an original and seven copies to: Kimberly D. Bose, Secretary, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20426.
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 proposed amendment: The licensee proposes to modify the North Tower intake at the Dam No. 2 Development of the Portland Project. A multi-level intake structure would be added to the tower to allow for the selective withdrawal of water from different reservoir elevations. The modifications are necessary to allow for better temperature management below Dam No. 2, as required by the Bull Run Water Supply Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP). Environmental impacts related to selective water withdrawal were already analyzed as part of the HCP. Neither the hydraulic capacity nor the installed capacity would change as a result of the modifications, and there would be no change in project operation or normal reservoir elevations.
l. A copy of the application is available for review at the Commission in the Public Reference Room or may be viewed on the Commission's Web site at http://www.ferc.gov using the “eLibrary” link. Enter the docket number excluding the last three digits in the docket number field to access the document. For assistance, contact FERC Online Support.
