"This project, built nearly a hundred years ago, does not pencil out under today's environmental and engineering standards," said Ed Schild, PSE director of energy production and storage.
Schild said PSE is continuing to work with the Lake Tapps Task Force on finding a long-term plan for preserving Lake Tapps. One idea involves a proposed sale of PSE's consumptive water right at Lake Tapps to a consortium of Puget Sound cities and public water districts. The consortium, the Cascade Water Alliance, hopes to develop a new, regional drinking-water supply at Lake Tapps.
"We believe the water-supply plan holds great promise for saving the lake," Schild said. "But it's a complex plan with a lot of moving pieces. We haven't crossed the finish line yet."
The alliance's plan would require less diversion of White River water into the reservoir, Schild said. Smaller diversions, he noted, presumably could meet federal fish-protection requirements for the White River, satisfy the drinking-water needs of alliance customers, and keep enough fresh water flowing into Lake Tapps to preserve a full, healthy lake.

"The dikes are sound," said Ed Schild, PSE's director of energy production and storage.
Schild said the work will begin once PSE obtains all the necessary permits. "Ideally, we'd like to start moving dirt in February or March. Our hope is to complete a good portion of the project, if possible, by late spring so the reservoir can be refilled to its full, recreational level by Memorial Day."
The reservoir's water level, Schild noted, currently is down around the base of the five dikes identified for seismic remediation. The water level typically is low during winter months because PSE draws more water from the reservoir in winter for increased power generation. Until the dike project is finished, he added, the reservoir's water level will remain low.

"We are fortunate to demonstrate to Congressman Larsen, first-hand, the multiple benefits that the Baker project is bringing to the community," said Ed Schild, director of hydroelectric resources for PSE.
PSE Gets New 40-Year License For Snoqualmie Falls Hydro Project, 1 July 2004 [cached]
"The project was a marvel of engineering at the time it was built," said Ed Schild, PSE's director energy production and storage.
With a new license now in hand, Schild said, PSE also will replace the project's existing generators with new, more efficient turbines capable of boosting the project's output to 49 megawatts - without additional water running through the turbines.
"We're extremely pleased, and relieved, to finally have a new license," Schild said, noting that it has been 13 years since PSE applied for the federal operating permit."Snoqualmie Falls has provided our customers with clean, low-cost, environmental friendly power for a long, long time.We're glad they'll continue to benefit from the project."
Even with the $40 million PSE must invest to maintain project operations, Schild noted, Snoqualmie Falls' power-production costs will remain very competitive with alternative, market-based power resources.

"This award serves to validate the incredible effort so many dedicated people, inside and outside our company, invested to build a state-of-the-art fish-migration system on the Baker River," said Ed Schild, director of hydroelectric resources for PSE. "I couldn't be more proud."
Schild, joined by John Jensen, PSE's Baker River operations manager, and Mark Killgore, project implementation manager, accepted the award for PSE during yesterday's ceremony.
