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 150-megawatt closed loop pumped storage project would use the 1,200 feet of available head between a new upper reservoir and an existing open pit mine. The project consists of the following: (1) A new 35-foot-high upper dam with a total crest length of 6,000 feet, impounding an upper reservoir with a maximum storage of 1,300 acre-feet; (2) an existing open pit mine lower reservoir, with a maximum storage of 1,500 acre-feet; (3) a penstock connecting the two reservoirs consisting of a 200-foot-long, 12-foot-diameter steel pipe and a 1,150-foot-long, 12-foot- VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:28 Apr 16, 2014 Jkt 232001 diameter vertical shaft; (4) two 75megawatt pump/turbines; (5) a 2,200foot-long, 14-foot-diameter draft tube, extending from the turbines to the lower reservoir; (6) a new 115-kilovolt (kV) transmission line extending about 36 miles from the project’s substation to an existing 115-kV transmission line owned by Arizona Public Service; and (7) appurtenant facilities.
