On September 7, 2016, Skandana, 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 the Eagleville Hydroelectric Project (project) to be located on the Chenango River, near the Village of Morrisville, Madison 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 new facilities: (1) An approximately 750-foot-long and 35-foot-wide concrete dam; (2) an impoundment with a surface area of 80 acres and a volume of 459.1 acre-feet at a normal water surface elevation of 1,330.0 feet above mean sea level; (3) a concrete spillway; (4) a steel penstock; (5) a three story high concrete, wood and steel powerhouse 120 feet wide by 249 feet long; (6) two turbine-generating units with a total installed capacity of 1,000 kilowatts; (7) a tailrace; (8) an approximately 8-mile-long, 115-kilovolt transmission line from the powerhouse to the Cody Road substation; and (9) appurtenant facilities. The estimated annual generation of the Eagleville Hydroelectric Project would be 8,500,000 kilowatt-hours.
