FFP Project 100, LLC; Notice of Preliminary Permit Application 
Accepted for Filing and Soliciting Comments, Motions To Intervene, and 
Competing Applications

    On March 3, 2014, FFP Project 100, 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 hydropower at the U.S. 
Army Corps of Engineers' (Corps) C. W. Bill Young Lock and Dam located 
on the Allegheny River in Allegheny 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 C. W. Bill Young Lock and Dam Hydroelectric Project 
would consist of the following: (1) A new 150-foot-wide, 200-foot-long 
intake channel; (2) a new 200-foot-long by 200-foot-wide concrete 
powerhouse containing three generating units each rated at 5.0 
megawatts (MW) having a total installed capacity of 15 MW; (3) a new 
100-foot-wide, 300-foot-long tailrace channel; (4) new concrete 
retaining walls upstream of the intake and downstream of the new 
powerhouse; (5) a new 40-foot-long by 40-foot-wide substation; (6) a 
new 69-kilovolt transmission line approximately 6,129 feet long from 
the new substation to an existing substation; and (7) a new access road 
60 feet in length. The estimated annual generation of the proposed 
project would be 93 gigawatt-hours.
