Start Preamble June 1, 2009.

On February 5, 2009 and supplemented on May 14, 2009, the City of Angoon filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the Scenery Lake Hydroelectric Project located on Scenery Lake and Scenery Creek, near the town of Petersburg, Alaska. The project would be located within the Tongass National Forest, with a portion of the transmission line crossing the state of Alaska and city of Petersburg's lands. 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 consist of: (1) A 120-foot-high concrete arch dam with spillway impounding Scenery Lake having a surface area of 520 to 820 acres and a storage capacity of 58,000 to 80,000 acre-feet; (2) a lake tap or siphon with fish screen; (3) a 13,000-foot-long by 8-foot-diameter power conduit; (4) a powerhouse containing two to four new generating units having an installed capacity of 40 megawatts; (5) a proposed 29-mile-long, 69- and 138-kilovolt transmission line; and (6) appurtenant facilities. The proposed Scenery Lake Project would have an average annual generation of 80 gigawatt-hours.
