Start Preamble May 7, 2009.

On January 6, 2009, Marine Power & Water, Inc. filed an application, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the Colorado River Indian Tribes Irrigation District Hydrokinetic Power Project, located in La Paz County, Arizona. The sole purpose of a preliminary permit, if issued, is to grant the permit holder priority to file a license application during the permit term. A preliminary permit does not authorize the permit holder to perform any land disturbing activities or otherwise enter upon lands or waters owned by others without the owners' express permission.

The proposed project would be located in an irrigation canal downstream from the Parker Irrigation Diversion Dam on the Colorado River, within the Colorado River Indian Tribe Reservation, 3 miles southwest of the City of Parker, Arizona, and would consist of: (1) One hydrokinetic electrical generating unit, with a total installed capacity of 15 kilowatts, (2) an existing 200-volt primary transmission line at check 19 that interconnects with the Western Area Power Administration, and (3) appurtenant facilities. The electricity generated from the project would be used by the Colorado River Indian Tribe Reservation. The project uses no dam or impoundment.
