Start Preamble September 25, 2009.

On August 31, 2009, the City of Hamilton, Ohio, filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the Greenup Hydrokinetic Project, located immediately downstream from the Greenup Lock and Dam on the Ohio River, in Scioto County, Ohio. 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 100 to 300-foot-long by 20 to 50-foot-wide barge anchored to the riverbed; (2) 10 6 to 8-foot-diameter by 20-foot-long turbine-generators attached to the barge; (3) high-voltage cables transmitting the generated power to the existing transmission line located near the Project; and (4) appurtenant facilities. The proposed project would generate about 1,533 megawatt-hours.
