KC Hydro LLC of New Hampshire; Notice of Preliminary Permit 
Application Accepted for Filing and Soliciting Comments, Motions To 
Intervene, and Competing Applications

    On February 8, 2012, KC Hydro LLC of New Hampshire, 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 
Milton Mills Hydropower Project (project) to be located on the Salmon 
Falls River, near the Town of Milton, Strafford County, New Hampshire. 
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: (1) The existing 120-foot-
long, 17-foot-high, concrete gravity Waumbek Dam; (2) an existing 6-
acre impoundment with a normal maximum water surface elevation of 455 
feet above mean sea level; (3) an existing 6-foot-diameter discharge 
conduit that would be modified to include a liner and extended 
downstream by 1,000 feet; (4) a new powerhouse containing a single 
turbine generator unit with an installed capacity of 100 kilowatts; (5) 
a new tailrace; (6) a new 400-foot-long, 34.5-kilovolt transmission 
line; and (7) appurtenant facilities. The project would have an 
estimated average annual energy generation of 500 megawatt-hours, which 
would be sold to Public Service of New Hampshire. The dam and 
impoundment are owned and operated by the New Hampshire Department of 
Environmental Services. There are no federal lands associated with the
