On March 23, 2010, and supplemented on May 27, 2010, KC Hydro LLC filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act (FPA), proposing to study the feasibility of the Cline Falls Hydro Project located on the Deschutes River in Deschutes County, Oregon. 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 will consist of the following: (1) A 5-foot-high, 300-foot-long diversion structure; (2) a pond with a storage capacity of 1 to 2 acre-feet; (3) a canal and box flume, connected to a 96-inch-diameter, 45-foot-long steel penstock; (4) a powerhouse containing a 750-kW Francis turbine/generator; (5) a tailrace leading from a rock chamber located under the turbine to the River; and (6) appurtenant facilities. Annual energy production is estimated to be 807 megawatt-hours.
