Mr. Adam R. Rousselle, II; Notice of Preliminary Permit 
Application Accepted for Filing and Soliciting Comments, Motions To 
Intervene, and Competing Applications

    On June 17, 2015, Mr. Adam R. Rousselle, II, filed an application 
for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power 
Act (FPA), proposing to study the feasibility of the Blue Marsh Dam 
Water Power Project (project) to be located on Tulpehocken Creek, in 
Lower Heidelberg Township and Bern Township in Berks 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 
    The project would consist of the following: (1) A proposed 6-foot-
diameter penstock; (2) a proposed powerhouse containing two generating 
units having a total installed capacity of 2,500 kilowatts; (3) a 
tailrace returning flow to Tulpehocken Creek; (4) a proposed 0.9-mile-
long, 12.47-kilovolt transmission line interconnecting with the 
Pennsylvania Power Company system; and (5) appurtenant facilities. The 
proposed project would have an average annual generation of about 
9,943,000 kilowatt-hours, which would be sold to a local utility.
