Start Preamble

On January 1, 2013, FFP Project 117, LLC filed an application for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act (FPA), proposing to study the feasibility of a hydropower project at the Kentucky River Lock and Dam #13 located on the Kentucky River near the town of Beattyville in Lee County, Kentucky. 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) A 300-foot-long, 43-foot-high concrete dam; (2) a reservoir with a surface area of 295 acres and a storage capacity of 5,540 acre-feet; (3) a 310-foot-long, 100-foot-wide intake channel with a 175-foot-long retaining wall; (4) a 110-foot-long, 80-foot-wide powerhouse containing two generating units with a total capacity of 5.0 megawatts; (5) a 230-foot-long, 110-foot-wide tailrace with a 110-foot-long retaining wall; (6) a 4.16/34.5 kilo-Volt (kV) substation; (7) a 2.2- mile-long access road; (8) a 0.3- mile-long, 34.5 kV transmission line. The project would have an average annual generation of 19,500 megawatt-hours.
