Start Preamble

On February 25, 2013, ECOsponsible, Incorporated 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 Rochester Gas and Electric Company's (RG&E) Mount Morris Power Dam located on the Genesee River, near the town of Mount Morris, Livingston County, New York. 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) An existing 30-foot-high, 334-foot-long stone and concrete gravity dam; (2) a single, proposed, low-head, horizontal bulb turbine having a total installed capacity of 1,100 kilowatts; (3) a proposed automatic trash rack cleaner; (4) an existing operation and maintenance building that will be used to house the supervisory control and data acquisition system; (5) a proposed overhead 200-foot-long, 2,400-volt transmission line connecting with RG&E's system; and (6) appurtenant facilities. The proposed project would have an average annual generation of 4,105 megawatt-hours, which would be sold to RG&E.
