Belton Power, LLC; Notice of Preliminary Permit Application 
Accepted for Filing and Soliciting Comments, Motions To Intervene, and 
Competing Applications

    On February 28, 2014, Belton Power, LLC filed an application for a 
preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act, 
proposing to study the feasibility of a Hydroelectric Project to be 
located at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Belton Dam on the 
Leon River in Bell County, Texas. 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) Five 300-
foot-long, 48-inch-diameter steel penstocks each housing an inline 
generating unit for a total capacity of 6 megawatts; (2) five 50-foot-
long, 48-inch-wide tailraces on a 66-foot-long, 50-foot-wide concrete 
foundation downstream of the dam; (3) a switchyard on the surface of 
the south bank of the dam; and (4) a 1-mile-long, 12.5 kilovolt 
transmission line. The proposed project would have an estimated average 
annual generation of 20,000 megawatt-hours and operate as directed by 
the Corps.
