On December 30, 2010, Mahoning Hydropower, 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 Lake Milton Hydroelectric Project (Lake Milton Project or project) to be located on the Mahoning River, in the town of Lake Milton, Mahoning County, Ohio. 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: (1) A two-mile-long reservoir with a surface area of 1685 acres at a normal pool elevation of 948 mean sea level; (2) a 54-foot-high, 760-foot-long concrete gravity dam including a 650-foot-long spillway and four 60-inch-diameter gate valves; (3) a 35-foot-long, 25-foot-wide concrete powerhouse located at the base of the dam and over the existing Gate 2 discharge pipe containing one tubular S-Type propeller turbine-generator unit with a capacity of 650 kilowatts and placed inside the existing 70-foot-long, 60-inch-diameter cast iron conduit through the existing dam; (4) a new 12.5-kilovolt, 320-foot-long transmission line connecting the powerhouse to an existing distribution line; and (5) appurtenant facilities. The estimated annual generation of the Lake Milton Project would be 3,700 megawatt-hours at a head range of 26-40 feet.
