Volunteers get ready to receive a shipment of fingerlings from the state Dept. of Fish and Wildlife in this 2010 photo. POWER received 150,000 new rainbow trout fingerlings last week for its feeder pens in Electric City. The conservation group receives two fish deliveries each year to stock the Banks Lake
fishery. The POWER group has raised and released millions of game fish into Banks Lake since its formation. — Star file photo
27 years and millions of fish
Recalling the
beginnings of POWER
by Roger S. Lucas
If you believe Banks Lake is a good place to
fish, then you can thank a couple of local men
who helped make it happen.
Reg Morgan, long since retired from U.S.
Fish and Wildlife, and Bill Brashears, who
passed away about a year ago, teamed up back
in 1987, and started a program of providing
fish for Banks Lake that continues today.
The organization POWER (Promoter of
Wildlife and Environmental Resources) was
founded about that time, with Bill’s wife Betty
coming up with the name.
Morgan remembers that when the two
started feeding fish, for eventual stocking of
the lake, they needed a name for the organization. That’s where Betty came in with POWER
and the name stuck.
Now, many millions of fish later, POWER
through cooperation with Washington State
Fish & Wildlife, has a major pen and feeding program in Electric City. The group re-
ceives some 150,000 fingerlings twice a year
and grow them up to size for release. POWER
mainly raises rainbow trout now, but over the
years has raised other species for the fishery.
So when you see the campgrounds around
Banks Lake crowded with tents, campers and
trailers, and long lines of boat trailers, there’s
a reason. That reason is POWER and the
thoughtful, forward looking decision Reg and
Bill made nearly 30 years ago that is still being carried forward today.
The program translates into millions upon
millions of fish, and countless financial benefits to the region.
The program was started for a time as a
chamber of commerce venture. POWER needed the chamber for insurance purposes, but
that was soon changed, and the group was on
its own.
What’s in a name? “About two or three
weeks of putting ideas on a tablet,” Betty said
last week when she was recalling the time.
When she came up with the name, the group
was quick to latch on to it. “I tried to think of
things the group wanted to do and build that
into the name,” she said.
The group is still building the fishery on
Banks Lake. The players have changed some,
but Carl Russell has been the mainstay in
leadership for many years.
Bill had come to the area from Eatonville,
Wash., where Betty had grown up. He was
in the banking business there and continued
that by starting the Security Bank of Washington in what is now the Foisy and Kennedy
building on Midway Avenue in Grand Coulee.
Bill was in the banking business for 30 years
until he retired. He was an avid fisherman,
and he and Morgan made a good team. Morgan had for years been the man to go to for
hunting and fishing information and wrote a
weekly column in The Star.
Morgan remembers how it all got started.
He and Bill went up Lake Roosevelt to where
the Spokane River enters the Columbia to see
a pen and feeding program started there by
Winn Self, Morgan recalls.
They liked what they saw, and the two
rolled up their sleeves and got to work.
“Bill had the contacts, and I had the background,” Morgan noted. Morgan worked for
the U.S. Fish & Wildlife for more than 28
Grand Coulee
lifts lot
Proponents of larger accessory
buildings in Electric City made
some headway at a city planning
commission meeting a week ago.
It is expected that the planning commission will recommend
to the city council that zoning be
changed to allow 1,728 square foot
buildings up to 26 feet in height.
Other details such as whether
the siding will have to match the
homeowner’s house are still to be
A healthy showing of proponents showed up at the meeting
and voiced their interests. Some
voiced their concerns.
The pros and cons of the issue
are almost equally divided as was
noted in a city survey about accessory buildings taken in September. Some 195 residents returned
the survey.
The survey asked whether the
resident was in favor or opposed
to no size limit on accessory buildings. Thirty-four percent were in
favor of unlimited size while 64
percent were opposed.
Sixty percent indicated they
were in favor of accessory buildings over 850 square feet (the current restriction). Thirty-six percent were in favor of restrictions.
When asked if they were in
favor or opposed to accessory
buildings larger than the person’s
homes, 45 percent said they were
in favor, and 54 percent were opposed.
When asked if they were in
favor or opposed to changing the
city code to allow larger sized
accessory buildings, 56 percent

The city of Grand Coulee, by ordinance, has lifted restrictions on lot
As a result of the ordinance, passed Oct. 7, there will be no lot coverage restrictions on all but one zone (C-H) in the city. That zone will
allow 75 percent coverage allowance.
In the R-1 zone, the maximum height you can build is now 30 feet,
with no limit on lot coverage.
The same is true in R-2, and R-3.
The three zones had a 25-percent limit on lot coverage prior to the
passing of the ordinance.
In the C-3 and I zones, building height is 35 feet with no restrictions
on lot coverage.
The changes were prompted by a number of people who wanted to
build accessory buildings but couldn’t because lot sizes were small in
Grand Coulee and the 25-percent coverage allowance prevented this.
Rules on how close buildings can come to property lines are still in
A number of people appeared at the last council meeting to speak
favorably for the change.
The change went into effect this week.

have led to the departure of the

Castrodale had told hospital

There’s been a push by some local residents for over a year to allow larger accessory buildings. It
appears that a request for larger
buildings will find its way to the
city council for a vote sometime
Notes sent along with the return of the survey were also varied.
One person wrote: “I don’t
think accessory buildings should
block someone’s nice view of the
lake or Coulee walls. In those instances maybe neighbor’s permission should be needed.”
Another response: “Buildings
larger than primary homes and
in view of other homes should be
a case by case basis. You people
don’t pay our taxes. We the taxpayers should have as say what
goes on our property that we own
and pay taxes on.”
Another comment: “There may
be areas where larger accessory
buildings would be appropriate
but not in residential districts
where homes are close together.”
This response came in: “There
are several problems with these

Town to follow
water program
by Roger S. Lucas
by Scott Hunter
In six months, a hospital recruiting team has managed to attract at least two doctors, a third
is on the way, and another health
care provider who had cut her
time in Grand Coulee to emergency room work only will restart
her practice in the clinic.
That record contrasts sharply
with the prior three years of little
luck as a former administration
stuck to a more traditional talent
search method through recruiting firms.
The future now appears
bright, with physicians committing to come to the coulee, even
as a pall hangs over current hospital finances, mostly due to state
decisions on years-old Medicaid
payments, and to lower revenue
because of fewer health care providers.
Monday night, Coulee Medical
Center Interim Chief Executive
Officer Debbie Bigelow said Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner Wendy Hughes will return
to her Grand Coulee Clinic practice after having left for months
following conflicts with former
Her return will likely be an
important revenue booster for
the hospital, which showed a
steep decline in monthly income
about the time she and ARNP
and Certified Nurse Midwife
Dawn Lovelace cut their hours to
larger structures. They block
views, block sunlight in windows
and for gardens; people use them
as shops and then you hear engine noises. People might have
mellow lights on their houses,
but for additional structures
they put bright lights on the
that glare in their neighbor’s
windows. I have a neighbor that
has a large shop/garage and still
parks his project vehicles out-
tionally, spiritually healthy at
That situation is now turned
around. Dr. Shannon ServinObert was the latest to join the
staff, following a committent by
Dr. Andre Nye. Both are family practitioners with advanced
training in obstetrics. They will
fill alternate weeks at CMC,
starting in January. And both
have or are currently working some weekends in the CMC
emergency room.
In addition, a doctor who is
nearly finished with her residency has also said she would like to
come on board, Castrodale said.
And an orthopedic surgeon,
Dr. Joshua Drumm, new to a
Brewster-based practice, will
start performing some surgeries
“The interest we have is
through the roof,” Castrodale
said, crediting the recruitment
side his shop creating a parking
atmosphere. In addition Electric City isn’t the prettiest town
around and has the feel of an
industrial/storage park, making
the neighborhood into a storage
park instead of a residential area.
This storage park feel makes it a
less desirable place to live. Also
why spend money to change the
code when we didn’t have enough
money to spend on police.”

team with an effort that far exceeded his expectations last summer. The chief of staff said morale
at the hospital is now high, compared to the opposite a year ago.
The promising future view
made less jarring another horrible monthly financial report.
Since April, CMC has been
paying back some $1.4 million
that the Washington State Health
Care Authority decided in February it had overpaid CMC for Medicaid services in 2012. Two more
similar assessments arrived at
the start of October. The current
total for all back overpaid Medicaid billings now stands at over
$2.4 million.
Bigelow said she told the state
she wants any more bad news
to arrive soon, so she can try to
avoid carrying it over into 2015.
The payback on the Medicaid
“cost reports” weighs on profit and
loss statements. August’s shows a
$437,000 operating loss on revenue of $1.5 million and a loss
of $2.2 million for the year. $1.85
million of that can be attributed

Elmer City council passed a cross-connection water system program
at its meeting last week.
The object of the cross connection program is to reduce the risk of
contamination of the public water system.
Officials also stated that the new program will reduce the town’s liability arising from the backflow of any contaminant originating from
the customer’s plumbing system.
The town plans to make available information concerning cross connections and backflow, so water users will be able to understand what
is involved.
The town passed a cross connection ordinance in 1995 that provides
the legal authority to require backflow assemblies, which need to be
approved by the town’s representatives.
The council indicated that information would go out with water
The problem of contamination is often associated with such things
as irrigation systems, swimming pools, hot tubs, spas, decorative
ponds, animal watering troughs and similar types of installations.
Persons wanting more information may call town hall.

Wrong initiative cited?
This is in response to an article
by Jess Utz, “Vote: It’s your right

I believe either Jess or The
Star made a mistake in the article where Jess mentioned Initiative 591. I’m sure Jess meant
to say Initiative 594, and not 591.
So confusing that even the author
can get confused!
Initiative 591 is short and to
the point (About a half of a page)
Found at
Initiative 594, on the other
hand, is long (19 pages), and
meant to trick the voter into half
truths and false securities. Found
Initiative 594 should be read in

Retain experience with Pheasant for treasurer
The most important qualification to be Grant County’s Treasurer is financial education and
experience. The write-in candidate, who barely squeaked into
the general election challenging our Grant County Treasurer,
hasn’t provided any information
on why he’s qualified for the job.
When asked, he deflects the question by saying he’s going to “bring
service back.” But, the things he
claims he’s going to do aren’t even
duties of the treasurer.
On the other hand, Darryl
Pheasant has a BA in finance, a
minor in economics and 28 years
of experience as treasurer. His
expertise is recognized by the
Washington State Association of
County Treasurers by serving as
their vice president.
One of the least understood,
but most important, duties of
the treasurer is investing county
funds that have been collected
and are not going to be spent immediately. Since these are public
funds, there are very strict rules
on how they can be invested. In
1995, Darryl recognized that the
most successful way to maximize
investment income within these
strict regulations was to create
an “investment pool” to combine
surplus funds from other agencies
with Grant County’s. The success
of this pool is demonstrated by
the fact that many other county
funds, cities, schools, hospitals,
ports, fire districts, and insurance
pools now participate. Now that’s
what I call service.
Investing public funds takes a
unique mindset. First, the treasurer needs to understand the
rules limiting what he can do.
Then, he has to constantly be
aware of what is going on in the
world, the US, the treasury markets and agency bond market.
That takes financial training, experience and proven talent.
Let’s keep Grant County’s finances in good hands. Retain

About dry grass at cemetery
First, the Grand Coulee Dam
Lions and Spring Canyon Cemetery would like to thank the community for all the support over
the past 79 years. We could not do
everything we do in the community without the support of this
great community.
At this time, I would just ask
that the community bear with us.
If you have visited any of your
family or friends that reside at
Spring Canyon Cemetery you
have noticed that the grass at the
cemetery is looking very dry. This
is not the fault of anything that
the volunteers or the Spring Canyon manager has done. We lost
our irrigation pump a few weeks
ago, and do not have a way to irrigate the grass.
We are working on the problem
and hope to have the new pump
and motor and wiring in place
in time to water a couple times
before the first big freeze. If not,
grass is pretty forgiving and we
will hit in the spring.
Thanks again to this community.

Looking for a representative, not a leader
“Proven Leadership” is the
slogan being thrown around this
season. Candidates telling us that
we should vote for them because
it’s “all about relationships.”
To me, that says a candidate
will play Let’s Make a Deal when
they get into office, and I’m not
interested in anymore politics
as usual. I am interested in a
candidate that will listen to the
people in their district, and be our
mouthpiece. I’m not interested
in being LED by a politician who
gets their pockets lined by their
“relationships.” I’m interested in
someone who is there to restore
this country to the values and
freedom that generations before
got to enjoy. If there is big money supporters from the West Side supporting
you then you’re probably not my
candidate, Dan Newhouse. If you are not interested in
what voters think is important
for our district, then you’re probably not my candidate, Tom Dent.
I’m done with status quo, and
politics as usual. Vote Clint Didier and Dani
Bolyard this election, and lets
bring representation back to our

Family, bucks and
familiar ground
It is a rare occurrence that four family members
can go on an expedition in the sage brush that surrounds us and come out with smiles. Yes, it was
opening day for rifle deer season and I was out there
once again. The difference this year was that instead
of just Cousin Cory, two boys tagged along. But it did
not start out that way.
As all you hunters out there know, you can’t just
jump in the truck and go hunting; you got to have a
plan. Levi and I thought we had one, too. Dave Finch
had given us permission to hunt his little gem of a
place, and we scoped it out. It looked great.
Opening morning we found
ourselves there, hunkered down
in the brush, watching a coyote
dance around on the hillside.
Shots rang in the hills around us,
orange dotted the ridge line and
soon we realized that the deer
were on vacation this time of year.
Reluctantly, we pulled out, and
Jesse Utz
after talking to a few people, we
found out that a few cougars have
been spotted in the area the last
few weeks. So yes, the cats moved
in and the deer headed to greener
sage brush. Plan one destroyed.
So back to the old stomping grounds. State land
that I walked every inch of last year and missed a
nice buck, twice, kind of. But this time Jesse, (the
other Jesse) jumped in for a day with the boys. Plan
two was put into action soon after a chat with Cory,
and the walking started all over again.
This chunk of land and I seem like old friends.
When you recognize a rock that has been your resting spot many times before and a familiar hawk that
follows you along the path, this all reminds you that
you know this land. As a matter of fact, all the work
put in last year paid off this year. I knew the little
divots. I knew where the beds were and the escape
shut up!
Dano involved in community
I have known Garth Dano and
his family since they first moved
to Moses Lake. I consider Garth
one of my very special friends.
Garth and his family have been
involved in many community activities. They were instrumental
in building Neppel Park, have
served on the Moses Lake Park
and Recreation Board, been active supporters of the Moses Lake
Boys and Girls Club, have donated land for a new Park next
to Park Orchard Elementary
school and have been involved at
many levels coaching the youth of
our community. Garth has given
countless volunteer hours supporting worthwhile causes.
Garth is dedicated to our legal
system. He knows and understands all aspects of the law and
will represent Grant County with
passion and professionalism. He
wants the best for our citizens
and is committed to make Grant
County a model of efficient and effective justice.
Garth has for many years managed a successful law firm. I encourage you to consider his vast
experience as a trial lawyer and
help him use his talents to mentor the current assistant prosecutors. Please vote for Garth Dano,
Grant County prosecuting attorney.

routes. Almost 100 yards from where I missed last
year, I harvested a decent buck this year. Then the
work began. Thanks to Jesse, (the other one) Levi
and Cory, the hard work was easy. With smiles and
knives and aching backs, it wasn’t long and the deer
was processed and hanging.
Then something weird happened. I had never
gotten an opening-day buck before. It was strange
to know I was done just like that. Cool, but I just
felt a little cheated. I wanted to get out there and
look some more, to walk till my feet yelled at me, to
sneak up on another one.
As I sat in the house resting as Levi walked the same
ground I was familiar with,
becoming familiar himself, a
feeling of wanting him to get
one grew large in my gut. He
would. I knew it. I never so bad
in my life wanted something for
him. It seems like a simple non
important thing, but I saw the
flicker in his eyes; he was hungry for the same feeling I was
having, and I wanted him to
have it but 10 times more. That
book is still open.
So a big thanks to Cory Alman, Dale Rinker and
Dave Finch. All played a big part in this weekend’s
success. Also thanks to Jesse (the other one) who
loaned us his back and comic relief, mostly at his
expense. Thanks to Levi for coming out in the sage
brush with an old man and igniting a new fire in my
gut. A fire to go all out after a big one, with integrity
and passion that only a hunter would know. It was
a good weekend and I can’t imagine you not being

Businessmen from Grand Coulee met with law enforcement officials last week to try and come up
with a permanent arraignment
for police protection in the area.
Currently the State Patrol has an
office in Mason City but the one
officer in the area is not enough.
Grant County Commissioners
will meet Monday and try and
hire a permanent Grant County
Deputy for the area. In the mean
time Grand Coulee is looking into
starting their own police brigade. THE STAR • OCTOBER 15, 2014

Electric City Councilmember Brad
Parrish caught this monster king
salmon in the Columbia River
near Richland. His grandson,
Isaiah Parrish from Spokane, is
holding it for the picture.
The only scales available topped
out at 40 pounds. The scale
quickly dropped to the peg, so
Brad says it must have weighed
over 40 pounds. He said his arms
were tired from bringing in the
huge salmon. — submitted photo

Ladies snap
losing streak
Piturachsatit also pointed out
that defense on a serve increased
to a 62 percent success rate. “This
is a huge increase to where we
have been and along with our
kill percent is one of our best improvements,” he said.
LR looks to keep the positive
improvement going this week
as the end of the regular season
and districts come into view. Last
night, the Lady Raiders hosted
the Bridgeport Fillies. Tomorrow,
LR travels to Manson for a 7 p.m.
match against the Trojans. Manson defeated the Lady Raiders
Sept. 23. LR hosts the Tonasket
Tigers Oct. 21 for a 7 p.m. match
at Gailord Nelson Gym. The Lady
Raiders lost to Tonasket in a fourgame match on Sept. 25.
All these matches are important for the Lady Raiders’ prospects of playing in districts this
season. The Central Washington
North 2B will get five spots into
districts, the South three. Because of the losing streak, LR is
sitting at sixth place. With Manson in fifth and a one-game lead
on LR, it is important the Lady
Raiders win out or win more than
they lose down the stretch to try
for the last spot into districts.

Vikings spoil Raider
by John R. McNeil II
In the first meeting between
the Raiders and the Mabton Vikings, the Vikings came out the
victors. Mabton defeated LR 32-0.
“Mabton was clearly the more
physical team tonight,” Head
Coach Steve Files said. “We are
capable of playing better, and
we’ll have to if we want to be competitive in our division.”
In the first quarter both teams’
defenses held, firm with Jacob
Palmer recording two sacks for
the Raiders. The Mabton defensive line was able to disrupt the
Raider offense with their penetration of the Raider offensive
line. The score was tied at zero to
start the second quarter.
During the second quarter the
Viking offense started to pass the
ball more and discovered a weakness in the Raider secondary. LR
did not cover the zones assigned
to the individuals when the quarterback began to scramble, with
Raider defenders leaving Viking
receivers uncovered for long pass
receptions. The Viking quarterback used this to score the first
touchdown of the game.
LR could not respond and then
fumbled to give the Vikings short
field. The defense held the Vikings out. With this swing of momentum, the Raiders drove down
field and looked to be on the brink
of scoring when Nathaniel Hall
was stunned by a hit on a run.
Austin Rosenbaum stepped in,
and on a bootleg right threw an
interception that was returned
to the Raider three yard line.

Raider boys’ cross country had
a successful day at Omak Oct. 7,
taking second out of seven teams.
“The boys team ran very
strong, placing second to Cascade while defeating four other
schools,” Head Coach Gary Darnold said. “This was a total team
effort as each runner on the team
makes an equal contribution to
our team’s success.”
Cascade, a 1A Leavenworth
high school, finished first with
five runners finishing in the top
10. Coach Darnold explains the
scoring system: “Cross Country
is a sport where each runner on a
team has equal importance to the
team score as each team’s first
five runners’ places are added up
to get a team score, with the lowest team score winning.”
Lake Roosevelt beat all Central Washington League competition. Tonasket took 3rd, Brewster
fifth, Bridgeport sixth, and Oroville seventh.

Lady Raider Volleyball split its
matches last week.
At home Oct. 7, Lake Roosevelt
faced a Liberty Bell team they
had defeated back in September,
but the rematch turned into a Mt.
Lion victory 3 games to 1.
“It was disappointing to lose to
LB in three games,” Head Coach
Nate Piturachsatit said. “We beat
them in four our prior match, and
then to lose so convincingly is difficult to take.”
Kammi Rosenbaum served up
six aces against the Mt. Lions.
Sean Garvin served two aces
of her own and served with 79
percent success. Jocelyn Moore
chipped in five kills and Garvin
as setter had nine assists.
With LR’s losing streak up
to six, Piturachsatit made some
changes in the lineup and rotation before the match at Oroville
Thursday. “I’m hoping change
will help us out of our rut,” he
said, “and I think this new lineup
will work better for the girls and
put people where we need them
The changes worked at Oroville as the Lady Raiders snapped
their losing streak, defeating the
Hornets in a four-game match.
LR served up 24 aces, with
Sean Garvin leading the squad
with 10. LR also attacked the net,
picking up 35 kills, “three times
our normal,” the coach noted,
“which is an area we have needed
to improve.”
Moore led the Lady Raiders
with 11 kills, followed by Lachelle
Bearcub with 10. Aiyanna Picard
had four kills and a block against
the Hornets.

The mammoth water wheel,
called G-24, rarely rested in its
productive 33-year work life at
Grand Coulee Dam in northeastern Washington, apart from
pauses for an annual tune-up and
a one-time rebuild of its electrical
“It’s been a real workhorse.
We’re usually running them pretty hard, and they have experienced a lot of wear and tear over
the years,” says Brian Clark, the
Bureau of Reclamation’s project
manager on the overhaul of six
mega-turbines in Grand Coulee’s
Third Power Plant.
Until last year, the turbine
had worked virtually around the
clock since going into operation in
1980. Made of steel, it measures
33 feet across and 18.5 feet tall.
How massive are its components?
It takes nuts and bolts that weigh
over 900 pounds apiece to fasten
them together.
“Everything’s big - enormous
- and the generation is unrelenting,” says Scott Ross, Grand Coulee deputy power manager. Ross
describes the chance to work on
the world-class equipment at
Grand Coulee as “a mechanical
engineer’s dream.”
Turning at exactly 85.7 revolutions per minute, a little faster
than the cadence of an average
human heartbeat, the G-24 turbine transforms the implacable
force of the Columbia River into
the torque to generate as much as
805 megawatts of electricity. The
single turbine not only produces
more power than an entire coal or
gas plant, its electricity is carbonfree.
Robust enough to light a city
on its own, yet nimble enough to
respond on a half a minute’s notice to soothe fluctuations in the
flow of energy across the region’s
transmission grid, G-24 and its
five powerful siblings in Grand
Coulee’s Third Power Plant represent a critical asset in the operation of the 31-dam Federal Columbia River Power System.
BPA ratepayers across four
Northwest states fund the refurbishments to the FCRPS power
plants through their electricity
rates. The work at Grand Coulee is performed by Reclamation,
which owns the dam, and its contractors, with safety as the highest priority. To see an animation

“This mechanical overhaul is
the single most important project we have going on across the
system,” said Michael Alder, dam
operations and maintenance program manager for the Bonneville
Power Administration, a federal
nonprofit wholesaler of electricity.
“The Third Power Plant has
tremendous value because of its
size and critical position in the
system. It’s also been worked increasingly hard as system conditions, such as operations to protect fish and support renewables,
have placed more and more demands on the plant. And there’s
been relatively little investment
made since its construction in the
The federal dams in the Columbia Basin supply one-third of the
electricity used in the Northwest,
at a cost far below other forms of
energy. On top of their longstanding attributes, the hydroelectric
dams have added a vital new role
in recent years: balancing the output of renewable energy sources,
such as wind, to fortify the transmission grid.
Two honored on
WSU President’s
Honor Roll
Two local students have been recognized as standing above the rest
with excellent academic performance at Washington State University
during the 2014 summer semester, the school said last week.
Taima Nichole Carden, of Coulee Dam; and Nicole Ashley Cleveland, of Elmer City, were named to the President’s Honor Roll for the
semester. To be eligible, undergraduate students must be enrolled in a
minimum of nine graded hours in a single term and earn a grade point
average of 3.75, or earn a 3.50 cumulative GPA based on 15 cumulative
hours of graded work.
Mabton quickly scored, and after
an official miscue on the ensuing kickoff the Raiders went into
halftime down 14-0.
In the second half the Vikings
continued to use the scramble
against the Raider defense that
switched to man coverage with no
safeties to cover the deep pass.
Mabton scored another touchdown but the extra point was
blocked by the Raiders.
Jesse Louie ran hard and attempted to rejuvenate the Raiders including a 57-yard-run to
place the Raiders within scoring
distance. The drive then floundered and the ball was turned
over on downs.
Mabton’s ground game came
alive, and the Vikings drove down
for another score. The kick was
blocked. LR’s offense could not get
anything going and was forced to
punt. The Vikings returned the
punt 70 yards for a touchdown.
Mabton attempted a two-point
conversion that was called back
on a flag. The kick was blocked for
a third time.
On the ensuing kickoff, Josiah
Desautel was injured and had to
be taken off the field in an ambu-
“Grand Coulee is relied upon
to balance the needs of the regional system,” says deputy power
manager Eric Corbin. “Because of
the unique features here, we can
carry about 75 percent of the load
of that balancing. It’s like a big
shock absorber for the system.”
With 33 hydroelectric turbines
spinning within a 45-story-tall
dam that drains a reservoir 150
miles long, Grand Coulee produces more clean, low-cost energy
than any power plant in the United States: 6,809 megawatts. At the
same time, it provides voltage stabilization and balancing reserves
that help keep the Northwest’s
transmission system reliable.
High-voltage transmission requires an exact balance between
electricity supply and demand at
all times. Grand Coulee and other
hydro plants adjust their power
output to complement and buffer
the moment-to-moment variability of wind energy on the grid.
“We’re like a huge, flexible
backstop for the system,” Corbin
says. “We’re able to balance all
the renewables - the solar and
wind - that are coming on. Our
hydropower units can respond to
the needs of the system faster and
more efficiently than any other
method we know of right now.”
However, like much of the other
key infrastructure in the nation,
the Columbia Basin’s
hydro plants have arrived at the
era of renewal. With cornerstones
built before World War II, the majority of the system ranges in age
from 40 to 77 years old. Although
it continues to serve the region
dependably, its declining condition has been exposed in recent
years by more frequent and costly
Although G-24 is Grand Coulee’s youngest unit, its 33-year
track record as a heavy lifter, and
corresponding state of health,
made it the first of the six turbines in the Third Power Plant to
be pulled out of service last year to
undergo a hard-earned, two-year
course of refurbishment. The base
cost to renew the six turbines is
estimated at $275 million, a figure
that could grow if the last three
turbines are upgraded to generate
more efficiently.
“We’re probably a little behind
the curve,” says Reclamation’s
Kerry McCalman, a power policy
expert, of the Grand Coulee overhaul process. “We’re starting to see
some failures due to equipment
that’s reaching the end of its useful life. The urgency comes from
the fact we’ve seen more forced
outages indicative of the wear and
tear and age of the equipment.”
The two-year project to restore
G-24 is part of a larger, 12- to 15year refurbishment of the Third
Power Plant, expected to cost $730
million. Having one of six mighty
turbines in a plant that produces
about $500 million a year in revenues out of service continuously
for more than a decade represents
a costly venture. But not nearly
as costly as the risk of multiple
units breaking down simultaneously due to age.
“We’re at the point where if we
wait any longer, we’d lose the benefits and ability to do it as cheaply
as we can do it now,” Corbin says.
“It’s a great re-investment for the
region and the nation.”
To prepare for the turbine
work, the surrounding systems
of the power plant needed to be
strengthened and updated. Major
electrical and regulation equipment was replaced, including
transformers, governors, exciters
and cranes. Outdated transmission cables that ran under the
dam were removed and new overhead lines were designed and constructed in a $33 million project
completed in 2013.
The six turbines will be removed one by one for refurbishment over the next decade. With
an additional capital investment
to allow the region to draw greater value from its existing infrastructure, the final three would
emerge even better than new in
the 2020s.
FCRPS engineers refer to this
trio of turbines as the “Little
Bigs” because they are slightly
smaller than G-24 - producing
690 megawatts - yet more heavy
duty. Turbine redesign and replacement could enable them
to produce more power from the
same volume of water. And that
extra electricity would have the
added benefit for Oregon public
utilities of qualifying under the
state’s renewable portfolio standards, which certify new green
energy sources. A final decision
on this “uprate” of the last three
turbines is expected in the next
In the case of the current project, G-24’s steel turbine had retained its underlying structural
integrity and the FCRPS owners and operators did not need
to spring for a replacement. But
decades of mechanical force, water pressure and river silt exacted
punishment on its surfaces, seals
and moving parts.
“The sheer dimensions and
the forces on them are huge,” explains McCalman, who filled in as
power manager at Grand Coulee
during this year’s project mid-

lance. Both squads played out the
game to a 32-0 conclusion in Mabton’s favor.
LR is now 1-4 for its overall
win-loss record, and 0-2 in Central Washington 2B South play.
On Friday, LR will travel to
White Swan for a 7 p.m. matchup
with the South co-leader Cougars. White Swan is 4-2 overall
and 2-0 in CWL 2B South action,
including a 26-13 win last week
over Warden. Kittitas is tied with

The lifting of the G-24 unit in Grand Coulee’s Third Power Plant reveals pitting and corrosion to the steel runner blades, the part of the turbine that
had spun in the Columbia River to produce power since 1980.
point. “Something with that much
weight and power has its own
wear and tear characteristics.”
With an emphasis on safety,
months of metal testing, sandblasting, cutting, welding, recoating and other labor-intensive efforts will restore G-24’s cracked,
pitted and leaky surfaces, as well
as its work-weary components,
to like-new condition and top efficiency by 2015. The most significant parts to be replaced are 24
wicket gates. The set of 12-foottall louvers are essential to regulating energy generation, opening
and closing like vertical venetian
blinds to control the volume of
water - the fuel - into the turbine.
Despite their colossal scale,
G-24’s moving parts intermesh
with exquisite precision. During the overhaul project, workers are machining components
that weigh tons, yet must operate
within clearances measured in
thousandths of an inch. The reliability and longevity of the unit
depend on it.
“To me, it’s like a really big
Swiss watch — very, very precise,”
says Ross.
Down in the cavernous void left
behind by the turbine removal, a
massive boring bar slowly pivots
in a 33-foot circle. The lumbering
milling machine, a million-dollar
tool that was custom-built inside
the dam to match the scale of
G-24, has the girth and span of a
large tree.
Yet its task is to delicately trim
the huge metal ring until the 104foot length is perfectly level to
within a few thousandths of an
inch. “Everything has to be plumb
in the extreme,” Corbin says.
Construction and electrical
inspector Philip Lopez vets the
work of the technician operating
the boring bar, using a laser device to affirm that the cuts are accurate within the width of a few
human hairs.
Even in the midst of perfecting the laborious details that
will determine the success of a
monumental project, Lopez finds
that the awe of Grand Coulee
never wears off. If the team does
its job right, by next year, one of
the three largest turbines in the
world will be renewed for up to 40
more years of world-class service.
“If you’ve worked in other power plants, you’re amazed at the
magnitude of everything here,”
Lopez says. “I’ve been here for
three years, and every day when
I come in to work, I still go, ‘Oh,
my gosh.’”
