    On July 1, 2016, the Community of Elfin Cove, DBA Elfin Cove 
Utility Commission (Elfin Cove) filed an application for a successive 
preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power Act 
(FPA), to study the feasibility of the proposed Crooked Creek and Jim's 
Lake Hydroelectric Project (project) to be located on Crooked Creek and 
Jim's Lake, 70 miles west of Juneau, in the unincorporated Sitka 
Recording District, Alaska. 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 two developments, the Upper 
System and the Lower System.
    The Upper System would consist of: (1) A 20-foot-long, 4-foot-wide, 
4-foot-tall diversion structure to divert up to 5 cubic feet per second 
(cfs) from Crooked Creek; (2) a 1,200-foot-long, 1-foot-diameter buried 
penstock; (3) a 20-foot-long, 20-foot-wide powerhouse containing a 35-
kilowatt (kW) crossflow turbine/generator; (4) a 50-foot-long, 8-foot-
wide, 3-foot-deep cobble-lined tailrace discharging flows into Jim's 
Lake; and (5) appurtenant facilities.
    The Lower System would consist of: (1) A 220-foot-long, 20-foot-
high rock-fill embankment dam and intake at the outlet to Jim's Lake; 
(2) a 2,050-foot-long, 1.2-foot-diameter buried penstock; (3) a 24-
foot-long, 24-foot-wide powerhouse containing a 105-kW Pelton turbine/
generator; (4) a 150-foot-long, 8-foot-wide, 3-foot-deep cobble-lined 
tailrace discharging flows into Port Althorp; and (5) appurtenant 
facilities.
    The 300-foot-long, 7.2/12.47 kV buried transmission line from the 
upper powerhouse would converge with the 2,800-foot-long, 7.2/12.47 kV 
buried transmission line from the lower powerhouse into a single 8,400-
foot-long, 7.2/12.47 kV buried transmission line extending to Elfin 
Cove's existing 7.2/12.47-kV distribution network.
    The estimated annual generation of the project would be 655.5 
megawatt-hours. The project would be partially located on 60 acres of 
federal lands managed by the U.S. Forest Service in the Tongass 
National Forest.
