On January 10, 2011, Richard A. Glover, Jr. 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 East Branch Dam Hydroelectric Project to be located on the East Branch of the Clarion River in Jones Township, Elk 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.
The proposed project would utilize the existing U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' East Branch Dam and would consist of the following: (1) One turbine and generator unit rated at 500 kilowatts; (2) a new powerhouse; (3) a 100-foot-long pipe between the outlet works and the powerhouse; (4) a 50-foot-long discharge pipe; (5) a 50-foot-long transmission line; and (6) appurtenant facilities. The estimated annual generation of the East Branch Dam Hydroelectric Project would be 377 megawatt-hours.
