Document Description
Project involves one encroachment activity and is limited to: gravity diversion of water from four PODs withiin three tributaries. Three PODs supply a single waterline used non-consumptively for operating a 500 watt micro-hydro turbine, at a maximum combined rate of 20 to 40 gallons/minute (gpm). Water discharged from the micro-hydro turbine exits into a 1 acre-foot reservoir and thence an eroded gully, downstream to Cold Creek. The fourth POD supplies a temporary storage tank and is used consumptively for small domestic use at an existing single family residence.
