On February 5, 2015, Adam Robert Rousselle, II 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 Nockamixon Dam Water Power Project (project) to be located on Tohickon Creek, in Bucks 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 consist of the following: (1) The existing Nockamixon dam, which is 1,511 feet long and approximately 112 feet high discharging into Tohickon Creek; (2) Nockamixon dam impounds a reservoir of 40,000 acre-feet with a surface area of 1,450 acres, at a pool elevation of 395.0 feet mean sea level; (3) a proposed reinforced concrete powerhouse housing three pump turbine generating units with a total installed capacity of 150 kilowatts; (4) a proposed 826-foot-long, 34.5-kilovolt primary transmission line connected to Metropolitan Edison Company; and (5) appurtenant facilities. The estimated annual generation of the project would be 834,000 kilowatthours.
