Procedural Shortcoming Triggers Additional Public Comment Period for the Yadkin Project's Water Quality Certificate.

BADIN, N.C., April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Alcoa Power Generating Inc. (APGI) has learned that a required legal notice regarding its application for a water quality certificate for the Yadkin Hydroelectric Project was not published. Alcoa had provided the information necessary for the publication of the notice, and the lack of publication was apparently an inadvertent oversight.

To remedy this failure to publish the notice, the NC Division of Water Quality posted a legal notice in the Stanly News & Press on April 17, 2008 seeking public comment on APGI's application for a water quality certificate for the Yadkin Project. State officials will accept public comment for the next 15 days, through May 2, 2008.

The NC Division of Water Quality originally issued a water quality certificate to APGI on November 17, 2007, after six months of review and public comment. The Division now plans to revoke it and reissue a certificate for the Yadkin Project after the public comment period has closed and after it has considered all information submitted in response to the public notice.

"We don't expect this technicality to have an impact on the relicensing process," said Gene Ellis, APGI licensing and property manager. "We fully anticipate the state will promptly reissue the water quality certificate once this additional public comment period has passed."
