Start Preamble August 9, 2010.

On May 18, 2010, Music Mountain 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 Music Start Printed Page 49930Mountain Pumped Storage Hydroelectric Project, located in Mohave County, in the state of Arizona. 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 developments:

(1) Two artificial, lined reservoirs joined by approximately 10,430 feed of conduit; (2) an upper dam with a height of 160 ft and 1,848 ft length at crest; (3) a lower embankment with a height of 50 ft and 6,336 ft at length of crest; (4) an upper reservoir having a surface area of 112 acres and a storage capacity of 6,885 acre-feet and maximum water surface elevation of 5,715 feet mean sea level; (5) a lower reservoir having a surface area of 69 acres and a storage capacity of 6,885 acre-feet and maximum water surface elevation of 4,940 feet mean sea level; (6) a proposed powerhouse containing three new pump/turbine generating units having an installed capacity of 350-megawatts; (7) dependent on the interconnection; a proposed 1-mile, single-circuit 500 kilovolt transmission line, an 8.5 mile, single-circuit 500 kilovolt transmission line, or an 8.5 mile, single-circuit 345 kilovolt transmission line. The proposed development would have an average annual generation of 1,073,100 megawatt-hours.
