On March 22, 2010, Mr. Howard Rosenfeld filed an application, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, for a preliminary permit to study the feasibility of the Warren Energy Independence Hydroelectic Project (Warren Project), to be located on Sucker Brook (a.k.a. Lake Waramaug Brook) in Litchfield County, Connecticut.

Some of the features of the proposed Warren Project would be new and located on residential property owned by the applicant, and some of the project works would include properties owned by the Town of Warren, Connecticut, such as an existing dam, intake, and water conveyance structures. The proposed project would consist of: (1) An existing 80-foot-long, 4-foot-wide, and 5-foot-high masonry dam; (2) an existing 48-inch square sluice gate structure feeding into; (3) a new 18-inch-diameter, approximately 535-foot-long penstock leading to; (4) an existing 25-foot-high, 22-foot-square stone-masonry building to house; (5) a new turbine generator unit, with a maximum hydraulic capacity of 5 cubic feet per second (cfs) and total installed generating capacity of 10 kilowatts (kW); (6) a new approximately 400-foot-long, 3.4 kilovolt (kV) transmission line, which would connect with the existing 23 kV distribution line owned by Connecticut Power & Light and adjacent to the applicant's property; and (7) appurtenant facilities. The Warren Project would have an estimated average annual generation of 50,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh), which would be used by the applicant on-site or distributed to the power grid and sold directly to a local utility.
