Start Preamble July 1, 2009.

On June 16, 2009, the City of Angoon filed an application pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act to study the feasibility of the proposed Scenery Lake Project No. 13365 located in southeast Alaska. The June 16 application amends the City of Angoon's initial application for the Scenery Lake Project, which was accepted and noticed by the Commission on June 1, 2009. The acceptance letter is hereby rescinded, and this notice supersedes the June 1, 2009, Notice of Preliminary Permit Application Accepted for Filing and Soliciting Comments, Motions to Intervene, and Competing Applications for the Scenery Lake Project. 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 15-foot-high concrete dam with spillway impounding Scenery Lake having a surface area of 520 to 610 acres and a storage capacity of 17,000 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 30 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 130 gigawatt-hours.
