On July 5, 2012, Coralville Energy, LLC filed an application for a preliminary permit under section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act proposing to study the feasibility of the Burlington Street Dam Hydroelectric Project No. 14431, to be located at the existing Burlington Street Dam on the Iowa River, near Iowa City in Johnson County, Iowa. The Burlington Street Dam is owned and operated by the University of Iowa.
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) The existing 291-foot-long by 14-foot-high concrete gravity dam; (2) a new 50-foot-long by 50-foot-wide by 50-foot-high powerhouse, containing two 0.75-megawatt (MW) vertical flume propeller-type turbine/generator units for a total capacity of 1.5 MW; (3) a new 2-foot-long by 40-foot-wide by 15-foot-high intake structure; (4) a new 400-foot-long, 12.7-kilovolt transmission line; and (5) appurtenant facilities.
