Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
On June 20, 2012, Go Green Go Hydro LLC (Go Green or applicant) 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 Black Lassic and Shanty Creeks Hydroelectric Water Power Project (Black Lassic Project or project) to be located on Black Lassic, South Shanty, and Shanty Creeks within the Six Rivers National Forest, near the city of Dinsmore, Trinity County, California. 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) Three 5-foot-high, 25-30-foot-long diversion structures with gravity uncontrolled spillways; (2) a 9,000-foot-long penstock; (3) a 30-by-30-foot powerhouse containing a two-nozzle Pelton wheel coupled to a synchronous generator with a capacity of 2,800 kilowatts; (4) a 6-foot-wide by 120-foot-long tailrace; and (5) a 24,440-foot-long, 12-kilovolt transmission line. The proposed project would have an average annual generation of 5,000 megawatt-hours.
