FFP Project 97, LLC; Notice of Preliminary Permit Application 
Accepted for Filing and Soliciting Comments, Motions To Intervene, and 
Competing Applications

    On April 14, 2014, FFP Project 97, 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) William Bacon 
Oliver Lock and Dam on the Black Warrior River near the towns of 
Tuscaloosa and Northport in Tuscaloosa 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 320-
foot-long, 120-foot-wide intake channel; (2) a 90-foot-long, 140-foot-
wide powerhouse containing two generating units with a total capacity 
of 16.4 megawatts; (3) a 320-foot-long, 140-foot-wide tailrace; (4) a 
4.16/115 kilo-Volt (kV) substation; and (5) a 1-mile-long, 115kV 
transmission line. The proposed project would have an estimated average 
annual generation of 65,800 megawatt-hours, and operate as directed by 
the Corps.
