On February 16, 2011, the Seneca Nation of Indians filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act (FPA), proposing to study the feasibility of hydropower at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Kinzua Dam located on the Allegheny River, near Warren, 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.
The Seneca Nation of Indians proposed project would consist of the following: (1) An array of eight generating units having a total installed capacity of 32,000 kilowatts, (2) a proposed 4,500-foot-long, 230-kilovolt transmission line. The proposed project would have an average annual generation of 123.0 gigawatthours.
