located on Bill Williams River, near the town of Weldon, La Paz County, 
Arizona. The project would be located at the existing Army Corps of 
Engineers' Alamo Dam. 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) An intake 
structure consisting of a concrete box with screens and a 90 degree 
bend with a bell fitting; (2) a 36-inch-diameter, 1,400-foot-long, 
underground penstock; (3) a powerhouse containing two turbine 
generators with a combined power generation of 950 kilowatts with an 
operating head of 125 feet; (4) a new approximately 500-foot-long 
transmission line; and (5) appurtenant facilities. The estimated annual 
generation of the project would be 2,200 megawatt-hours.
