On March 4, 2010, Hydrodynamics, Inc. filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of the Dry Creek Canal Irrigation Hydroelectric Project. 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 new reinforced concrete intake structure; (2) a new 36-inch-diameter, 2,600-foot-long [polyethylene and/or steel or PVC] penstock; (3) a new approximately 35-foot by 35-foot powerhouse, housing one turbine/generator unit (with an installed capacity of 500 kilowatts); (4) a new substation; and (5) a 100-foot long, 12.47 kilovolt transmission line which will interconnect with an existing Park Electric utility line. The estimated annual generation for this project is 1.7 gigawatt hours.
