http://elibrary.ferc.gov:80/idmws/search/advResults.asp FERC e'Library contains several updates on the application process at Gathright. Perhaps some of the folks on the TU mailing list would like to review the documents. The latest filings are from November 2008 to the present and concentrated in the 12-5 to 12-15-08 period. Our filing is dated 12-5-08 and we would like to direct our membership there even though it was posted to our web site earlier. There is also a progress report from the Applicant which outlines their next steps and timing.
Notice of Licensee's and Preliminary Permittees' Name Change, filed today with the Commission in Project Nos. P-11437, P-12737, P-12740 on behalf of Jordan Hydroelectric Limited Partnership, formerly Hydro Matrix Limited Partnership.

Gathright Water Quality Data - Sampling 1989-2007 Monitoring 1992-2007 Our
sampling program tests for metals and nutrients and then just metals on
alternating trips approximately every two weeks from May through November.
If the metals are found to be elevated in the release, we then sample for metals
several miles downstream (where Route 687 crosses the Jackson River at Petticoat
Junction). The monitoring is done at the gauging station immediately
downstream of the dam.
