Document Description
PG&E owns and operates the project, which encompasses approx 340 acres in the vicinity of the community of Pulga. Project land is owned by various parties including: 182 acres of PG&E-owned land; approx 145 acres of National Forest System land; approx 12 acres of privately-owned land; and one acre of Caltrans land. The project primarily consists of Poe Dam, Poe Reservoir, Poe Powerhouse, Big Bend Dam and Reservoir, and recreation facilities. Recreation facilities at Poe Powerhouse, Poe Beach, Bardees Bar and Sandy Beach are not included in the existing FERC license but have been proposed to be included in a new license by PG&E, FERC, and other relicensing participants. North Fork Feather River flows are diverted at Poe Dam into the 19-ft diameter Poe Bypass Tunnel, which is approx 6.25 mi long. The Poe Bypass Tunnel terminates at an underground steel penstock that is approx 1,000 ft long and 14-ft in diameter. Water from the penstock discharges into the North Fork Feather River at the Poe Powerhouse.
