On November 2, 2015, HY Power Energy Company 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 Inglis Lock By-pass Dam Water Power Project (Inglis By-pass Project or project) to be located at the existing U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Inglis Dam on the Withlacoochee River in Levy County, Florida. 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 60-foot-long, 98-foot-wide intake channel; (2) a 115-foot-long, 28-foot-wide powerhouse containing one generating unit with a total capacity of 2.8 megawatts; (3) a 10-foot-long, 20-foot-wide control building; (4) a 25-foot-long, 25-foot-wide substation adjacent to the control building; (5) a 300-foot-long, 12.47kV transmission line. The proposed project would have an estimated average annual generation of 16,200 megawatt-hours, and operate as directed by the Corps.
