On April 19, 2012, Milford 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 Milford Dam Hydroelectric Project, which would be located on the Republican River, in Geary County, Kansas. 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: (1) A powerhouse; (2) installation of two 1.85-megawatt propeller type turbines; (3) a proposed 4,440-foot-long, 12.7-kilovolt transmission line; (4) a 30-foot-long bifurcation structure equipped with three slide gates; (5) a 160-foot-long penstock; and (6) appurtenant facilities. The proposed Milford Dam Hydroelectric Project would have an estimated average annual generation of 20.917 gigawatt-hours.
