Start Preamble November 8, 2010.

On October 22, 2010, Clean River Power 16, 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 Kitano Water Power Project, located in Kauai County, in the state of Hawaii. 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) The existing Kokee Ditch Irrigation System comprised of multiple intakes, two reservoirs, and a series of ditches and tunnels; (2) a new upper intake including a trashrack and control gate; (3) a new 26,700-foot-long, 36-inch-diameter steel penstock; (4) a proposed 40-foot-long and 75-foot-wide upper powerhouse made with reinforced concrete; (5) a 4 MVA 4.16/695kV three-phase step-up transformer located in a switchyard 50 feet from the powerhouse; (6) dependent on the results of the proposed studies, a new 2-mile transmission line interconnecting with the existing utility transmission line between the Kahaka switchyard and the Kaumakani substation; (7) The proposed development would have an average annual generation of 23,100 megawatt-hours.
