    k. Description of Filing: The City of Bountiful, Utah, (City) 
applied to amend the license of the Echo Project to include within the 
project boundary an existing 18-mile-long transmission line extending 
from the East Canyon Dam to Bountiful. The transmission line was 
originally licensed as part of the East Canyon Project and was the only 
feature of the East Canyon Project constructed. The 18-mile-long 
transmission line is a part of the existing 30.5-mile-long transmission 
line between the Echo Project and Bountiful.
    The City also proposes not to construct the remaining project 
features of the East Canyon Project and surrender the license. The East 
Canyon Project is licensed to use the existing U.S. Bureau of 
Reclamation's (Bureau) East Canyon Dam and Reservoir. The City reports 
that in May 1988, the Bureau notified the City it would not permit the 
construction of the hydroelectric project until certain dam safety 
issues were resolved. The City states the Bureau has not fully resolved 
the dam safety issues, to date. The City maintains that uncertainties 
regarding the dam's stability make it difficult or impossible to secure 
adequate financing to develop the project.

Reference Room, located at 888 First Street, N.E., Room 2A, Washington,
