Mid-Atlantic Hydro, LLC; Notice of Preliminary Permit Application 
Accepted for Filing and Soliciting Comments, Motions To Intervene, and 
Competing Applications

    On January 31, 2014, Mid-Atlantic Hydro, 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 
to be located at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' (Corps) George W. 
Andrews Lock and Dam on the Chattahoochee River near the town of 
Columbia in Houston County, Alabama. 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 100-
foot-long, 150-foot-wide intake channel; (2) a 70-foot-long, 150-foot-
wide, 40-foot-high powerhouse containing three generation units with a 
total capacity of 12 megawatts; (3) a 100-foot-long, 150-foot-wide 
tailrace; and (4) a 10-mile-long, 115kV transmission line to an 
existing transmission facility. The proposed project would have an 
average annual generation of 60,000 megawatt-hours, and operate as 
directed by the Corps.
