Description
Summary:The memorandum from Scher is a seismic hazard analysis for the dams proposed at the Susitna Hydroelectric Project site. It summarizes opinions of the report "Final report on seismic studies for Susitna Hydroelectric Project" prepared by Woodward-Clyde Consultants for Acres American Incorporated in 1982 relative to hazards that should be considered, the current understanding of seismicity in Southcentral Alaska, and the present state-of-practice for evaluating such hazards. (That report is numbered APA 1255-1256 and 1434.) The memorandum from Riddle consists of excerpts from "Before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, application for license for major project, Susitna Hydroelectric Project draft license application," volume 12 : Exhibit E, Chapter 6, Geological and soil resources, released in 1985. (That volume is numbered APA 3436 and SUS 579.) The excerpted pages (E-6-2-11 to 16 ; E-6-3-4 ; E-6-3-11 ; and E-6-4-2 to 4) cover geology of the proposed Watana Dam site.
