2019-13826. Cherokee Rivers Company, LLC; Notice of Preliminary Permit Application Accepted for Filing and Soliciting Comments, Motions To Intervene, and Competing Applications  

  • Start Preamble

    On April 3, 2019, Cherokee Rivers Company, 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 Lower Coosawattee Hydroelectric Project (Lower Coosawattee Project or project) to be located at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' (Corps) Carter's Reregulation Dam on the Coosawattee River, in Murray County, Georgia. 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 50-foot-long, 8-foot-wide intake structure with trash racks and stop logs, on the left end of the dam; (2) four 8-foot-diameter, approximately 320-foot-long penstocks running through the dam; (3) the four penstocks combining into two 15-foot-high, 23.6-foot-wide, 100-foot-long box culvert conduits; (4) a 52-foot-long, 25-foot-wide, 47-foot-high powerhouse containing two generating units, with a combined capacity of 4.5 megawatts; and (5) a 120-foot-long transmission line. The proposed project would have an estimated average annual generation of 16,500 megawatt-hours, and operate run-of-release utilizing surplus water from the Carter's Reregulation Dam, as directed by the Corps.
