    k. Description of Project: The site consists of the Raw Water 
Terminal Building. The building currently houses a 440 MW fossil-fired 
plant. Three Ranney-style wells, located approximately 12 miles 
southeast of Vernal, Utah, draw water from the Green River. The water 
is then conveyed through a 22-mile-long concrete-lined pipeline to the 
Raw Water Terminal Building.
    The hydro generator will be installed in the Raw Water Terminal 
Building between the existing inlet and outlet headers taking advantage 
of the pressure and flow through the Raw Water system.
    When a Declaration of Intention is filed with the Federal Energy 
Regulatory Commission, the Federal Power requires the Commission to 
investigate and determine if the interests of interstate or foreign 
commerce would be affected by the project. The Commission also 
determines whether or not the project: (1) would be located on a 
navigable waterway; (2) would occupy or affect public lands or 
reservations of the United States; (3) would utilize surplus water or 
water power from a government dam; or (4) if applicable, has involved 
or would involve any construction subsequent to 1935 that may have 
increased or would increase the project's head or generating capacity, 
or have otherwise significantly modified the project's pre-1935 design 
or operation.
