On May 18, 2010, at 8:30 a.m., the Commission received four preliminary permit applications for proposed projects to be located at the C. W. Bill Young Lock and Dam located on the Allegheny River in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. The applications were filed by Lock+ Hydro Friends Fund XXXIX, for Project No. 13740-000, FFP Missouri 3, LLC, for Project No. 13749-000, Allegheny 3 Hydro, LLC, for Project No. 13775-000, and Three Rivers Hydro, LLC, for Project No. 13781-000.
Where all permit applicants are municipalities or all permit applicants are non-municipalities, and no applicant's plans are better adapted than the others' to develop, conserve, and utilize in the public interest the water resources of a region, the Commission issues a permit to the applicant who filed first in time. In this case, because four applications from entities not claiming municipal preference are deemed filed at the same time, the Commission will conduct a random tie breaker to determine priority. In the event that the Commission concludes Start Printed Page 4893that no applicant's plans are better adapted than the others, priority will be determined accordingly.
On January 27, 2011, at 10 a.m. (eastern time), the Secretary of the Commission, or her designee, will, by random drawing, determine the filing priority for the four applicants identified in this notice. The drawing is open to the public and will be held in room 2C, the Commission Meeting Room, located at 888 First St., NE., Washington, DC 20426. The results of the drawing will be recorded by the Secretary or her designee. A subsequent notice will be issued by the Secretary announcing the results of the drawing.Start Signature
