On November 4, 2010, Mahoning 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 Stonewall Jackson Hydroelectric Project, to be located at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Stonewall Jackson dam on the West Fork River, in the Town of Weston, Lewis County, West Virginia. 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 utilize the existing U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Stonewall Jackson dam and would consist of: (1) An existing 42-inch-diameter, 100-foot-long penstock; (2) an existing 50-foot by 50-foot powerhouse, containing one existing generating unit with a generating capacity of 300 kilowatts (kW), discharging directly into the existing stilling basin through a 10-foot-wide, 4-foot-high draft tube opening; (3) an approximately 400-foot-long, 12.4-kilovolt (kV) existing transmission line connecting to an existing distribution system owned by Allegheny Power; and (4) appurtenant facilities. The estimated annual generation of the Stonewall Jackson Hydroelectric Project would be 1,800 megawatt-hours.
