On May 18, 2010, FFP Missouri 13, LLC and Grays Hydro, LLC filed applications, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, proposing to study the feasibility of hydropower at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Grays Landing Lock & Dam located on the Monongahela River in Greene County, Pennsylvania. 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.
Descriptions of the proposed Grays Landing Lock & Dam Projects:
FFP Missouri 13, LLC's project (Project No. 13763-000) would consist of: (1) An excavated intake channel slightly longer and wider than the powerhouse; (2) a 140-foot-long, 16-foot-wide, 40-foot-high proposed powerhouse containing two generating units having a total installed capacity of 15.0 megawatts (MW); (3) an excavated tailrace channel slightly longer and wider than the powerhouse; (4) a proposed 7,400-foot-long, 34.0 to 230-kilovolt (kV) transmission line. The proposed project would have an average annual generation of 47.0 gigawatt-hours (GWh), which would be sold to a local utility.
