Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
On May 18, 2012, Inglis Hydropower, 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 located at the Inglis Bypass Channel, located on the Withlacoochee River in Levy County, Florida. 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 existing 32-foot-high, 3500-foot-long earth filled dam; (2) a reservoir with a surface area of 4,000 acres and the storage capacity of 41,000 acre-feet; (3) a 1.75 mile-long bypass channel; (4) a 65-foot-wide, 35-foot-long intake structure with a trash rack cleaning system; (5) Four 12-foot-diameter, 250-foot-long steel penstocks; (6) a powerhouse containing three generation units with a total capacity of 2,300 kilo-Watts, with an estimated average annual generation of 14,200,000 kilo-Watt hours; (7) a 120-foot-long, 24 kilo-Volt underground transmission line.
