On April 5, 2010, Mississippi 17 Hydro, 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 Mississippi River Lock and Dam #17 Hydroelectric Project, located on the Mississippi River, in Louisa County, Iowa. 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) The powerhouse; (2) installation of four 4.9 megawatt bulb turbines; (3) a proposed 5.7-mile-long, 69-kilovolt transmission line; (4) switchyard; and (5) appurtenant facilities. The proposed Mississippi River Lock and Dam #17 Hydroelectric Project would have an average annual generation of 80 gigawatt-hours.
