Start Preamble December 7, 2009.

On October 1, 2009, Northbrook Carters Lake, LLC filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the Carters Lake Hydro Project, which would be located at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer's Carters Reregulation Dam on the Coosawattee River near the town of Calhoun, Murray County, Georgia. 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 the following:

(1) The existing 208-foot-wide Carters Reregulation Dam; (2) an existing 870-acre reservoir having a storage capacity of 17,210 acre-feet and water surface elevations between 677 feet and 696 feet mean sea level; (3) an intake and conduits delivering water to the project turbines; (4) a concrete powerhouse located 90 feet downstream of the dam; (5) two new Kaplan generating units having an installed capacity of 4.5-megawatts; (6) a newly excavated 700-foot-long tailrace; (7) a proposed transmission line 0.5 mile long; and (8) appurtenant facilities. The project would have an average annual generation of 17.325 gigawatt-hours.
