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 be a closed-loop pumped storage hydropower facility. The applicant proposes three alternative upper reservoirs: McCloud Reservoir, Little Cactus Reservoir, or Haiwee Canyon Reservoir. The proposed North Haiwee 2 Reservoir would be the lower reservoir for each alternative. Upper Reservoir Alternative 1: McCloud Reservoir The McCloud Reservoir alternative consists of: (1) A 504-acre upper reservoir having a total storage capacity of 44,554 acre-feet at a normal maximum operating elevation of 5,260 feet mean sea level (msl); (2) a 175-foothigh, 3,068-foot-long roller compacted concrete upper reservoir dam; (3) a 2.41mile-long, 39-foot-diameter concretelined headrace tunnel; (4) a 0.2-milelong, 35-foot-diameter concrete-lined vertical shaft; (5) a 5.6-mile-long, 35foot-diameter concrete-lined horizontal tunnel; (6) six 0..78-mile-long, 22-footdiameter steel penstocks; (7) a 585-footlong, 90-foot-wide, 165-foot-high concrete-lined powerhouse located in an underground cavern, housing five pump-turbine generator-motor units rated for 400 megawatts (MW) each; and (8) a 0.68-mile-long, 42-foot-diameter concrete-lined tailrace tunnel discharging into the proposed North Haiwee 2 Reservoir.

Upper Reservoir Alternative 3: Haiwee Canyon Reservoir The Haiwee Canyon Reservoir alternative consists of: (1) A 138-acre upper reservoir having a total storage capacity of 28,620 acre-feet at a normal maximum operating elevation of 6,160 feet msl; (2) a 595-foot-high, 2,256-footlong roller compacted concrete upper reservoir dam; (3) a 1.64-mile-long, 31foot-diameter concrete-lined headrace tunnel; (4) a 0.32-mile-long, 28-footdiameter concrete-lined vertical shaft; (5) a 5.2-mile-long, 28-foot-diameter concrete-lined horizontal tunnel; (6) six 0.54-mile-long, 18-foot-diameter steel penstocks; (7) a 585-foot-long, 90-footwide, 165-foot-high concrete-lined powerhouse located in an underground cavern, housing five pump-turbine generator-motor units rated for 400 MW each; and (8) a 0.8-mile-long, 33-footdiameter concrete-lined tailrace tunnel discharging into the proposed North Haiwee 2 Reservoir. Lower Reservoir: North Haiwee 2 Reservoir The proposed North Haiwee 2 Reservoir would consist of: (1) A 320acre lower reservoir having a total storage capacity 38,350 acre-feet at a normal maximum operating elevation of 3,770 feet msl; and (2) a 160-foot-high, 7,090-foot-long roller compacted concrete lower reservoir dam. Interconnection For each upper reservoir alternative, project power would be transmitted to the grid via: (1) A new, 2.5-mile-long, 500 kilovolt (kV) underground transmission line extending from the E:\FR\FM\01OCN1.SGM 01OCN1
