Lassen Lodge Hydroelectric Project,  FERC  P-12496 
This proposed Hydro project on the upper reaches of the South Fork of Battle Creek will have a 6' high by 94' wide diversion dam at elevation 4,304 feet.  A 10' x 20' intake structure will be to the side of the dam.   A 4' diameter pipe will extend downstream.  Then a 3' high pressure line will drop another 1.4 miles to a powerhouse at elevation 3,350 feet.  The powerhouse will have a maximum flow of 105 cfs, but optimal flow will be 95 cfs
