k.   Description of Request:  Georgia Power Company (licensee) requests Commission approval to upgrade four generating units in the west Bartletts Ferry powerhouse.  The licensee proposes to replace existing turbine runners, rehabilitate generators, and install new trashracks.  The unit modifications would increase the installed capacity by 13.65 megawatts and increase the maximum hydraulic capacity by 5 cubic feet per second.  To facilitate the proposed unit upgrades, the licensee may implement a reservoir drawdown.  As required by license Article 401 Project Operation and Lake Levels, if a drawdown is needed for the proposed work, the licensee would consult with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Alabama Ecological Office.  The licensee would also, notify the Alabama Department of Environmental Management and provide boat ramp

elevations.

The proposed upgrades also include installing aerating turbine runners in three of the four turbine units (units 1, 2 and 4).  The aerating turbine runners will enhance the project’s ability to continue to achieve Georgia water quality standards by increasing the dissolved oxygen.  Therefore, the licensee also requests to amend Article 403 Tailrace Water Quality Enhancement and Article 404 Tailrace Water Quality Monitoring of the project license to implement the proposed Dissolved Oxygen and Water Temperature Monitoring Plan following the unit upgrades.
