The Seneca Pumped Storage Project ("Seneca Project"), Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Docket Number 2280, is a pumped storage hydropower generation facility located along the Allegheny River in the Allegany Indian Reservation, southern New York, and northern Pennsylvania.
The Seneca Project has an authorized production capacity of 450 megawatts (MW), generating electricity with the water of the Allegheny River by making use of Kinzua Dam and its Allegheny Reservoir impoundment. The Project consists of a lower reservoir (the Allegheny Reservoir), an upper reservoir, two pump-turbine generator units, one conventional turbine-generator unit, associated water intakes, conduits, and discharge facilities, a powerhouse, transmission lines, and the lands affected by these facilities.
The Federal Power Commission (FPC) issued the original license to operate the Seneca Project on December 28, 1965. The current 50-year license for the Seneca Project will expire on November 30, 2015. The Seneca Nation submitted its Notification of Intent and Pre-Application Document, the first two steps in the regulatory process of applying for the license to operate the Seneca Project upon the expiration of the original license. This website will act as a channel of communication between the Seneca Nation as an applicant for the license and the interested parties or agencies as participants in the relicensing process.
The FERC license for the Seneca Pumped Storage Project, FERC Docket Number 2280, expires in November of 2015.
