Start Preamble August 14, 2009.

On May 12, 2008, KW Sackheim Development filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the Jackson Meadows Dam Project, located on the Middle Yuba River, in Nevada County, California. The proposed site is a non-generating feature of the Nevada Irrigation District's Yuba-Bear Project, FERC No. P-2266. 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.

Jackson Meadows Development

The proposed project would consist of the following:

(1) An existing 1,530 foot-long, 195foot-high embankment dam; (2) an existing reservoir having a surface area of 738 acres and a storage capacity of 52,500 acre-feet; (3) one penstock consisting of an existing 42-inch-diameter pipe, 240 feet in length; (4) a new powerhouse containing one new generating unit having an installed capacity of 2.5 megawatts; and (5) a proposed 8,000-foot-long, 60-kva power transmission line. The proposed Jackson Meadows Development would have an average annual generation of 8.7 gigawatt-hours.
