Southern California Edison Company's Proposed Project is located on the Kaweah and East Fork Kaweah rivers near the community of Three Rivers in Tulare County, California. The Proposed Project encompasses 314.82 acres, including 171.29 acres of public lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and 143.53 acres of SCE-owned or private land.
The Proposed Project is a hydroelectric project that consists of continued operations of three developments: Kaweah No. 1, Kaweah No. 2, and Kaweah No. 3. The Proposed Project has a limited storage capacity of 11.93 acre-feet [ac-ft] with a dependable generating capacity of 8.85 megawatts (MW). Water captured at diversion structures (Kaweah No. 1 Diversion Dam, Middle Fork Diversion Dam (non-Proposed Project facility), Marble Fork Diversion Dam (non-Proposed Project facility), and Kaweah No. 2 Diversion Dam) is transported through connecting flowlines and penstocks to each powerhouse (Kaweah No. 1 Powerhouse, Kaweah No. 2 Powerhouse, and Kaweah No. 3 Powerhouse) and then returned to the Kaweah River through each powerhouse’s tailrace.
