Take notice that the following hydroelectric application has been filed with the Commission and is available for public inspection:
All documents may be filed electronically via the Internet. See 18 CFR 385.2001(a)(1)(iii) and the instructions on the Commission's Web site
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.
The proposed pneumatic crest gate system would be designed for flood control purposes, and will not operate at flows below 7,500 to 9,000 cubic feet per second (cfs). The exemptee is not proposing to modify the height of the dam, therefore normal water levels would be maintained at their current elevation, and normal flows upstream and downstream of the project will not be altered upon installation of the crest gate system. The crest gate system would be designed to withstand overtopping in the raised position, and will be capable of operation in both a fully raised and partially raised position.
During construction of the of the pneumatic crest gate system, the exemptee proposes to perform the construction in "dry conditions" by eliminating flows at or over the Jackson Mills Dam by using an existing submerged cofferdam located about 300 feet upstream of the dam to divert all flows through the existing powerhouse, and setting the existing turbine units to sluice mode. Where feasible, the exemptee proposes to relocate fish and amphibian species to avoid possible fish stranding.
