Start Preamble July 6, 2010.

On September 29, 2009, McGinnis, 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 Kentucky Hydrokinetic Project, to be located on the Tennessee River downstream of the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and the Corps of Engineers' (COE) existing Kentucky Lock & Dam in Marshall and Livingston County, Kentucky. 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 Kentucky Hydrokinetic Project consists of: (1) 10 proposed 35 kilowatt axial flow turbine generating units having a total installed capacity of 350 kilowatts; (2) a 700-foot-long, 13.2 kilovolt transmission line; and (3) appurtenant facilities. The proposed Kentucky Hydrokinetic Project would have an average annual generation of 1.533 gigawatt-hours.
