k. Description of Request: Southern California Edison Company (licensee) proposes to remove from the project license the Breakneck Creek diversion, which is one of three diversions included as part of the Santa Ana River 1 (SAR 1) development. Located on private lands owned by the licensee, the Breakneck Creek diversion system includes a diversion dam, upstream intake gates to the settling basin, a walkway on the dam crest, a buried trash rack and intake, and a buried outlet tunnel. Since the diversion has become inoperable as the settling basin has filled with sediment, the licensee proposes to leave in place the underground or partially buried features, including the diversion dam, and to remove the aboveground ancillary features.
