k. Description of Request: The Allegheny Lock and Dam Project has not yet been constructed. The applicant is proposing to modify the approved project works identified in Ordering Paragraph (B) of the Order Issuing Original License, issued March 13, 2017, to: (1) Change the design of the intake channel and intake structure to a combined reinforced concrete “U” section 150-foot-long, 90-foot-wide, and 57-foot-high; (2) delete the two 45-foot-wide, 40-foot-high spill gates from the intake structure; (3) delete the 1,100-foot-long series of 2.5-foot-high adjustable crest gates on top of the dam; (4) change the design of the powerhouse (the powerhouse will remain a concrete structure supported on a mat foundation but will be decreased in size from 180-foot long, 170-foot wide, and 70-foot high to a building 150-foot long, 90-foot wide, and 70-foot high); (5) decrease the number of generating units from three identical Kaplan turbine generators having an installed capacity of 17 megawatts (MW) to two identical 5.0 MW units for a combined installed capacity of 10.0 MW; and (6) change the design of the tailrace to an excavated channel 150-foot-long and 90-foot-wide. As a result of these modifications the approved 17 MW generating capacity would be reduced to 10 MW and the size of the project boundary would be decreased to accommodate the smaller footprint of the project.
