Start Preamble October 23, 2009.

On September 1, 2009, Three Guys Hydroelectric Company, LLC filed an application for a successive preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the R. D. Bailey Dam Hydroelectric Project No. 12683, to be located at the existing R. D. Bailey Dam, on the Guyandotte River, in Mingo County, West Virginia. 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 existing R. D. Bailey Dam is owned and operated by the U.S. Corps of Engineers, and includes the existing reservoir, dam, outlet works, and tailrace. The proposed project would consist of: (1) A new 60-foot-long by 40-foot-wide powerhouse to be located on the downstream side of R. D. Bailey dam below the outlet works; (2) a new bifurcating steel structure consisting of a 100-foot-long gated bypassed outlet and a 150-foot-long, 11-foot-diameter penstock; (3) two new turbine generator units for a total installed capacity of 7.8 megawatts; (4) a new 6.5-mile-long, 14.7-kilovolt transmission line; and (5) appurtenant facilities. The proposed project would operate in run-of-river mode and generate an estimated average annual generation of 30,000 megawatt-hours.
